    Very nice and comfortable!!I was really frustrated to find a room with privacy, unlike the pods that is famous in Singapore. I was really happy staying in Backpackers' Inn. There is privacy and the room is nice and comfortable. The room is also clean as well as the comfort room too. The location is near from the Chinatown station. You can find restaurants in the street. The staffs are nice. They are all Filipina. So to all filipinos out there, this hotel will be perfect for you.

    HOSPITALITY IS NOT GOODI spent 03 days of my vacation with Backpacker, it was a good experience here. Even the room is small as offered 8m2 but the layout is good for a couple to stay. It's very clean and tidy, the bed is super comfortable. I like it a lot. However, the staffs are not friendly. I found that staff in the morning is more friendly than evening. I don't know why, but that's my experience when asking them for information.

Cleanliness was superb. We stayed 2 nights and its only 2 stations away from Harbour Front ( plus point if ur planning to go Sentosa Island or USS) Would definitely recommend this place to others.

    My mom and I stayed on their Deluxe Loft for 6 days and we had a comfortable stay here. Even though the bathrooms are common, it was always clean. The staffs are very accomodating to the guests. BREAKFAST: For a complimentary free breakfast it was really good. They serve bread, hard boiled eggs, cereals, coffee, pineapple juice and wide array of jams, peanut butter and kaya. Very accesible and near the attractions for Chinatown. Maxwell foodhouse, Chinatown street food and Lau Pa Sat are near too.
