Wonderful filipina staff

location and staff
I recently stayed at the Backpacker's Inn Chinatown for 5 nights. Great location, great staff, but I had forgotten how it is to stay in a hostel. This hostel only has 2 bathrooms for so many guests but somehow it was never a problem. They let you use their washer and dryer for free as well. You just have to pay 1SG dollar for their soap. You can come and go freely as you want - there is no curfew, but like with any hostel, remember that there will be noise and interruptions all the time. Choose and pay for the private room for 4 guests. You will only have to deal with 3 other people instead of many. Also, it is the only room with a door. The other beds are through the hallway and behind big curtains. They do provide you with a closet to store your luggage and things. You get a key, and the space in the closet can probably take only a carry on or a little bigger in size. The filipina staff is what made my stay a nice one. And I was able to meet new people in my room as well - good people. Stay here if the hostel experience is your thing. If not, pay more for a hotel room with your own private amenities.

central budged place

central, cheap, easy to find
i stayed many times in this place but always in a twin room, those are ok, but this time we have been a group of 4, so i booked a room for 4 person. those rooms are not different from 12 and more dormitories. the participations in-between the rooms are open to the top and our wall was made out of paper and the backside of a cabinet. you could hear every single movement of everyone there. this third house of the hostel is also not clean. I would never book such a 4 person room again. probably a twin room yes.

disappointing budged place

central, cheap, easy to find
we spent couple times in a twin bed room, those are ok, but the second place of this hostel is not clean, this time we have been 4 of us so i booked a 4 bed room. those bigger rooms are all open to the top and you can absolutely hear every single move of everyone around. for the standard the price is to high, i will never book a room for 4 person again. actually the participations between the rooms have been in our case just a simple paper sheet and the backside of a cabinet. very uncomfortable. Probably i will book a twin room again, but bigger than this no.
