Found the staff member who checked us in very unhelpful and quite rude. Did not seem interested in doing her job, preferring to browse Facebook and ignore us. The staff also moved another guest's belongings to accommodate us on our arrival (without ours or his knowledge). Later the guy came looking for his things. The dorm room was fine, nothing special. The showers smelled like urine slightly but were ok other than that. Not a great hostel, but you get what you pay for.


Very nice well located hostel..

Good price-performance ration. Very friendly staff and clean accommodation in an excellent location within the city center. But the internet connection didn't work so well, sometimes not at all. It could be excellent - if fixed.

We are very satisfied staying in city backpackers inn with clean room, hospitable staff and nice and cheaper rate of their room. We recognized the staff and the owner of the hostel because they are our kababayan.

This is a basic hostel located in the city center, close to nightclubs, restaurant and bars. The rooms are small but clean. The staff is not very friendly, but for me, the location makes up for that.


very nice to stay at this hotel. the hotel is very close to a hearing where tourism. I would definitely stay at this place again for my next visit. Cleanliness is very awake. and which provide facilities to function properly.


We stayed in the 4th floor and there was no elevator. The hostel is good if you want to go to Clark Quay, because it is just 5 minutes walk and also 3 minutes from the subway station.


Good location to walk to Clarke Quay in the evenings, China Town and SMRT stations (where the rest of the city is easily accessible on this efficient network!). Staff were not very welcoming and could not provide me with a map or any information on where to go / what to see in Singapore. Also, the rooms are quite segregated without a main common room so it is hard to meet other travellers in this hostel.


The place is really good, the staff at the morning is not soo nice, but its actually good at night. The location es really good you have the MRT 2 minutes. Maybe you can try one night and decide!
