        Tried it , Love It !!!”

        Near Biggest MRT Station , Great services , very friendly and easy to go everywhere

        I was quite surprise by the cheap price and all the services they have, it was nice and easy to stay. The WiFi works great and very fast , you can practically access it everywhere in the hotel. The room is clean and simple, I especially love their TV with DVD players and USB cable ^__^ There is One 7-11 store located next to them so what you need is there , but save your money on Drinks by buying them at the hotel , they cheaper ^__^ I don't know about the hotels dinner cause I always eating out, food in Singapore is great ^__^ Beside the hotel services , it only takes about 10 minutes walk to China town , 5 minutes walk to Clark Quay MRT - The biggest MRT station in Singapore , at the MRT , you can go everywhere , Orchard Road , Marina Bay .... And only about 1,20$ , save up a lot from Taxi and use your money for food and shopping. * Additional Note : Because the hotel only give you Toast and Jam for breakfast , you can also seek out for instant breakfast choices like Instant chicken rice that selling in the 7-11 store next door , then just put them in the Hotel's Microwave and you can have a nice breakfast with only 4$ ^__^ All and all , I have no complains ^__^ try it , I did ^__^

        the twin room is exaclty the same they are showed on the web,i love that room!the owner is very kind,he helped us everything we needed.

        we didnt expect a room in a hotel in singapore with that price has a good condition like that! the room is spacious(more than we though it was),very clean and fresh.the decor is nice,it made everything became easier for us to stay for 2days.the breakfast corner is quite small but lovely with some trees and benches.actually i experienced my happiness here and made friend with some ppl,we still keep in touch now.the staffs are friendly and helpful in each situation. thing i love the most is this place is super near to clarke quay,just a few steps,crossing the street and you r there!and this place is so convenient for moving around the city,it's in the middle of every line of mrt, close to clarke quay station.

        Great location with MRT station just next to it (Clarke Quay Station). Another Station is at City Hall, have to walk around 10 minutes. The staff is friendly, he even help my girl friend to carry her luggage to 3rd Floor, thanks for him. Besides that, if you like to drink and hanging out at pub, this is a good place to stay. Clarke Quay clubbing area just one street far from this hotel. As a conclusion, I will come back again at least one night if I visit Singapore again

        Great Location for a very affordable price!!”

        2 to 3 minutes walk to the bus and train station

        i arrived in singapore past midnight and i need an early check in. i was able to spoke to them through email prior to my stay, they informed me that if there are available beds they can booked me a room and if there's none, i can stay in their lounge and leave my things without an extra charge. when i got there, i'm lucky to have a bed available so i booked it. the receptionist was very accommodating and friendly. when you arrived to the hostel you will required to have a $20 security deposit for the locker keys, it will be returned upon check out. got friends who stayed in the hostel as well but booked different dates,but the hostel managed to have our beds in one room. they got free wifi. i can easily connect online in my room or you can use the computers in the lounge area. the hostel is in the clarke quay area, it's literally a walking distance to the bars and cubs in the area. across the street is the central mall and the clarke quay mrt station. my only problem with the hostel is they don't have elevators, it's a 4 storey building and it's really difficult to carry my luggage downstairs upon check out. when i check in black (the receptionist) helped me out because my room is in the 4th flr. good thing about the hostel is they have 24hrs reception and they have hot and cold shower. each floors have toilets and shower room. overall, for a cheap accommodation and hostel, i can say city backpackers is very nice place to stay. i will recommend this to my friends and will sure stay here next time i go to sg.

I check in without deposit and check out at 3 pm without charging any cost, thanks to Sir Adam. You just have to smile first to the lady cleaner and she will smile back :) Everyone is fighting their own battle, be nice :) S-afe. Although the lock in my room seems to be broken on the first night, I'd still had a peaceful slept. Thanks Lord Jesus :) S-atisfied. This is my personal experience.

        I was there with a bunch of colleagues and we were on a business trip. 90% of our time were spent on-site and City Backpackers was the perfect place to re-charge. The hotel's just minutes away from clarke quay (the place to drink the stress away). Bed's comfortable, not too noisy and it met our requirements for travel.

        me and my boyfriend had such a wonderful stay at this hostel it really is a great little place! the location was perfect for us, we was able to walk everywhere(chinatown,orchard road,clarke quay, merlion and other attractions) and yet the mrt was only seconds away if we was feeling lazy. our room was very clean and spacious, with a nice tv that was always showing films and we had a balcony. the bathrooms were also clean and had a really nice shower. the staff were all friendly and the breakfast was the usual bread and jams/coffee/tea but still nice! had no problems staying here and would definitely stay here again! abit expensive but we did have a private clean room so it was worth the money.

        great location & value for singapore”

        location, washer & dryer

        i think the hong kong street backpacker operations like this hotel have replaced what used to be budget accomodations in singapore like the ywca or relc hotels (which have gone upmarket, meaning with rates normally above u$ per night). as academic i pass through singapore with some frequency, and have stayed in them all. the short walk to clarke quay and general location are its real selling points, so i would list this as a "value for the money" hotel with bathrooms down the hall.

        Great location!”

        The staff are very friendly and helpful, fantastic location!

        we only stayed one night in city backpackers, but it was good for our family. we had a really restful night. the location is great, very close to shopping mall, mrt and all other amenties, especially if you want to go to santosa. the room is very clean, though you will have to share the shower and bathroom as usual, but that doesn't bother us at all, in fact, it was a good experience for our kids. we didn't take the mrt to city backpackers, as we have too many luggages (travelling with 4 young kids), and it will be too much hassle to change trains and going up and down the stairs, so we just hired a van from the airport. if you are travelling light, then it's pretty easy to get there, casue you will have to change train twice, i think, then walk to mrt to city backpackers. further, they provide free breakfast, nothing fancy, but definitely save your $$$. overall, i think it's a great place to stay if you just want something practical.

        close to MRT station

        Hassle free check-in and check-out. Very close to Clarke Quay MRT station and in the heart of Clarke Quay. It was very easy to find the hostel with about 10 mins walk from Clarke Quay MRT station. Plenty to see and to do in the surrounding area. Hostel is mainly occupied by young and fun solo travelers. I had lots of opportunity to chat and discuss with other fellow travelers for tips and ideas of sight seeing. Bedroom and bathroom were very clean and convenient. Staff were friendly and helpful.

        Affordable Hostels for International Tourism”

        City Backpackers is considered as Hostels with affordable price and located in strategic location and near with the MRT Station (Clarke Quay). For people who want to see Singapore but have budget constraint this hotel is considered preferable. The room is not to big, the bathroom is outside the room but still clean enough. The only thing that I don't like from the hostels that the noisy sound from the car engine and people taking the trash are really annoying at night, since the hostels is just beside the road and nothing you can do about this.
