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.

awesome stay”

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.

Great place, close to metro and center ”

It’s the second time we stay here, and we have been happy both times. Location is great, two minutes walk from the Chinatown station, close to the center and several hawkers. Not all rooms have windows, but it’s great when you’re jet lagged anyways. It’s been renovated recently, nice tough with the option to make coffee and tea. Plus we could leave our luggage there, after we checked out.

For the price, we could’ve get a lot better hotels in other SEA countries, but this is Singapore we are talking about. Location was great, very easy to walk from the MRT. 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.

HOSPITALITY IS NOT GOOD”

I 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.

clean room”

we stay in a family room with 3 double beds. the room is spacious, clean and comfortable to stay. the design is very thoughtful as our room is at the loft with no window so they create 2 windows with lamp outside which we can turn it off if we want. what is unexpected is they also have so many plugs that is enough for six people to charge their phones at the same time. but at night the room beside us is very noisy. they laugh and talk all night till morning. light sleeper is not recommended to stay unless u bring your own ear plug. but everything is perfect for this hostel

You can improve more on customer service, just a standard sleep and stay. Imagine we are tired, did not get enough sleep then upon arrival at the hotel (we arrived at 930am)they immediately will tell you come back at 2pm and you must leave tom at 11am otherwise you will pay the surcharge (idont mind the charges if the service is great).not even saying the word welcome!take note: no toilet inside the room, ONE toilet for five rooms,it has to be posted in the ad.it has tv but you cant watch any movie or local tv. worst part, cant sleepwell simply because of the very bad smell of pillows and duvets, its like hundreds of sweaty backpackers slept on my duvet and never been washed...we are so lucky we booked only one night on that hotel, and we decided to booked on nearby hotel,
