Perfect location. Very near Little India Station”
I love G4! The location is perfect as it's very near the Little India Station exit Mackenzie Rd. Old Chang Kee Restaurant is a few steps away from G4. There is a restaurant beside G4 where you can buy chicken rice for SGD3.50only. You can buy bottled water at G4 for only SGD1. Sodas are also available like Coke and Sprite, you can get it for the same price. You can also rent their towels if you did not bring yours. The receptionist is very helpful and accommodating. You need to deposit SGD20 upon check in and this is refundable when you check out. The bathroom and toilet are always clean. Kudos to the cleaning staff of G4. Breakfast is basic bread and spreads, coffee, tea and juice. There is a room for improvement as far as their bunkbeds are concerned. I would suggest cleaning the braces of the bunk bed as there were dust all over it. I had to use wet tissue to clean it. The bed is comfy. The comforter is heavy though. The pillow is ok. Overall we enjoyed our stay.
It was very pleasant!”
It was my first time staying at a backpacker hotel, and it was brilliant. G4 was very close to the MRT station, which was very handy, when we're about to go out, going home from the F1 concert, and going to the airport. Honestly, we only used the room for sleeping and taking showers, since we were so very busy with our itinerary, and the room+outside bathroom were totally clean and comfortable! Will definitely recommend this place for my friends who love to stay at backpacker hostels!
i felt so comfort as long as i stayed 4 day/3 night at G4 station Backpackers' Hostel, Easy access and all staff very friendly, Awesome G4 station Backpackers' Hostel very recommended.
Good value for money”
Cons: no elevator for a 4 storey hostel. Pros: easy to find, take mrt redline little india station then exit E. There is a parking lot upon exit. Look to your 1 o'clock and there is the hostel. Pros: 20 minutes walk to bugis if you are a filipino(pictures along the way). 20 minutes walk also to mustafa centre. Pros: 7/11 is 1 block away. Pros: Since we are 7, we get the room good for 8 person. The room is cold for 7 person moving around. Lockers are big and everyday they clean the room. Can leave the bag after check out without fee. Although towel is not free they offer free shower gel at the bathroom. Breakfast is more on bread but unlimited with many spread to choose from. Pros: 10 minutes away via cab to Newtoon hawkers place where you can eat a lot of food. Pros: since all our distination is in mrt red line and little india is part of the red line, it is much easier for us to travel. TIPS: IF YOU ARE GOING TO SINGAPORE TAKE TIME TO STUDY THE BUS ROUTE TO REFRAIN FROMWALKING
Convenience and Comfort”
As mentioned in the website, the hostel location is literally few steps away from Little India MRT, PLEASE NOTE that G4 Station is at EXIT A. For those who plan to visit Mustafa, it is a 3 bus stops walking distance from the hostel or you can take MRT and get off at Farrer Park which is at City Square Mall and besides Mustafa Center, or for an experience you can take a bus, you got options. Across the hostel there is a foodcourt or food shop that offers different dishes even pasta so we don't need to walk further just to get some meal. The room size is just adequate for sleeping. Please note that since this is a backpackers hostel then a trolley bag would be difficult to lift going upstairs as G4 does not have elevator either escalator. Inside the room, we were provided 2 bottles of water (as a welcome drink), one time only. Our accommodation comes with breakfast, a basic bread with choices of bread spread, coffee/milo/cereal drinks, egg to help boost energy to start the day. I guess the one seated at the hotel reception was the owner and he was very helpful and nice. He really make it a point about the cleanliness of the hostel that made received recognition. This is my first time to stay at backpackers hostel and will definitely consider staying again on next visit. Few pointers to share, please bring your own toiletries. I think the hostel does not accept credit card so please prepare cash of SGD20 for the deposit (which I made when I check in). From Little India to Changi Airport taking by MRT, we paid SGD2.40 and took less than an hour travel. -hope this helps-
A good budget place to stay. ”
We are a group of 4 and stayed at G4 for 3 nights. Whad a great stay there. Mrt and bus stations are near. The room and the hostel in general is clean. Dont expect the room to be big but considering the price its a decent place to stay. They serve bread, jam, biscuit, coffee, tea and juice for breakfast. I specially like there kaya jam.
Great affordable hostel in an expensive country. ”
As Singapore is an expensive country we only stayed at G4 backpacks for 2 nights but had a great time. The room was very small but clean, the bed was comfortable an there were lockable cupboards which were large enough to fit all our luggage in - 2 backpacks and 2 day packs. Fast internet in the room. The shared bathroom was really clean and the shower lovely and powerful with hot water. The guy on reception who welcomed us at check in was very friendly and provided us with all the information we needed for our stay. The rest of the staff were great too, offering us fresh fruit every time we left for a days sightseeing. Breakfast was a DIY affair in which you could make yourself eggs on toast and coffee, you could make as much as you want too so definitely enough to set you up for the day. If we don't win the lottery in the mean time enabling us to stay at Raffles on our next visit to Singapore we'll definitely come back to G4 Backpackers!
Breakfast is not what you read from the comments”
We had very good stay at the G4 Station. The location is good, only few hundred meters to the closest metro station and five minute walk to Little India. The Tekka center with a great food court with wide selection and cheap prices was just around the corner too. The hostel is very clean, they have hot showers and soap. The only thing we weren't satisfied with was the breakfast. There were many customer comments on the booking page that the breakfast is a great buffet, but it was only white bread with some spreadings and crackers. I don't know, if the the breakfast has changed since the comments or if I have very different opinion of what is a buffet, but for us the breakfast was a big dissapointent. Also the hostel is not yellow as in the pictures, now you are looking for a purple building!
Value for money and excellent location! ”
PROS - less than 200 meters from Exit A of the Little India MRT - only 2 to 3 stations away from the Chinatown, Orchard, Bugis locations. A little more and you're at Bayfront. - friendly and helpful staff - easy access to nearby eating places. - 10 min walk to the 24hour Mustafa Centre CONS - this is a budget backpacker hostel, walking up to the 3rd level where our private room with the queen sized bed with our luggage posed a small challenge. Only had to do that twice so not really a problem. - staff cleans the shared shower and toilets daily, don't expect anything fancy. It's basically something functional that lets you do what you HAVE to do. Nothing extra. - staff cleaned our room daily. A sign advising we didn't want it cleaned would be appreciated (for those who don't want people coming in to their room. - only 4 clothes hangers were in the room. OVERALL - will stay here again, pros far outweigh the cons and we didn't come here to stay in our rooms all the time.
Great stay in city center as backpacker”
I booked double room and stayed for 3 nights here. Feel really comfort with the room and other services. Location is really close to bus and MRT station. You may just walk to the tourist attraction like Bugis Street Market, Little India Arcade, and Mustafa Center. Hawker food near hostel if breakfast provided just not enought to start your day. Definitely will stay here again on my next trip to Singapore.
It was awesome! Some might argue that the rooms were small. In our case, as I was traveling with my girlfriend, we had the Double room and it was perfect for us. The size was decent enough for the two of us and the bed itself was just the right size. If you are looking to spend a great deal of time in your room, this might not be the place for you. For us, it was perfect as it served its purpose, mainly to provide a good comfortable place to spend the night. Will I stay at G4 next time I visit, 100%. Friendly staff, fast internet, and overall good environment/location.
I did not except the hostel to be that clean. We were there for 3 nights. We stayed at the room with 8 beds and the room is spacious. The location is excellent just a little walk to little india mrt which made us access all places. My kid even liked the place. I would really recommend this place to my friends. Thanks G4 staff.
Very close to MRT little india”
I stayed here many times. Good location to travel around Singapore only 5 mins from G4 to MRT station. Breakfast are toasts, bananas, hot drinks, orange juice. helpful staff . No food in room. There's a small pantry with kettle, You can eat at there. Room is tiny (it's common in SG) Helpful staff. He gave the good info about how to get to sightseeing places. He even carried my very heavy luggage from 3rd floor to the first floor ! Thank you so much.
Affordable and worth it!”
This is a great place to stay if you are in a group or solo traveler. The building has no elevator though but it is just okay since there are only 5 floors. Very neat and clean with free breakfast and free use of their PC and it is very near to Little India MRT station and Little India shopping district. I just rate facilities "Good" because of the elevator. Overall, my 2 nights stay was fulfilling. Thank you G4 amazing and friendly staff!
Nice staff, good location ”
The staff is very nice, and location is an advantage of G4. Just 2 mins walk from Little India MRT, bus stop, and 7/11 store. Other scenic spots are also some MRT/bus stops away from G4. Minus point: very very small room. (I booked one bunk-bed dorm room) sound proof is a bit poor. Overall: I will recommend G4 to friends.
Felt like being cheat the deposit fee”
Everything was nice . The best for this hostel is its very near the Litte India MrT . We dont expect Much since we know Singapore hotel price is expensive . All thing here very basic, no lift . The breakfast is terrible so u can skip it . Everything was ok until the last day we can not get the deposit. We 3 people stay 4 night bookEd 2 difirenrt room for save the price but the receptionist suggest us to stay together for convinient and pay 90$ for 3 night. And the fourth night he will send another person come . Then we dont have to paid for the fourth night. But i dont see anyone come the last day. When we checkout, he said we come out too early so can not send me to another room!?? And also can not bring anyone in . So he charged us 20$ deposit . So total we have to pay 110$ which is even more expensive than agoda price Lolll . I felt like they cheating me . Every was good until that destroyed my good memory about Singapore . If u wanna stay here , its ok but be careful.
Will definitely come back there to stay my next travel”
Keep it up G4 Station... Request one thing i hope ifcan u put individual curtain for more privacy bedspace with individual lamp shade and it willbe perfect! Keep it up the toilet cleanliness, its very good!
Two minutes away from the MRT station”
I would definitely recommend this hostel. It was really close to the Little India MRT station, with restaurants and 7-11 nearby. Rooms and public areas were also clean. Not much choice where breakfast was concerned (there was toast and coffee every day, with eggs every other day), but you're going to be having meals later anyway so that wasn't a big deal for me.
Pleasant stay at the G4, close to restaurant and train station and bugis area. Bedroom is okay quite comfy. Shared bathroom is okay, but other guests sometime didn't flushed and there's also guest with kids running in the corridor, it was quite noisy and annoying, especially when we're trying to sleep.
very convenient hostel ”
Very satisfy when stay here, because it's near alot of shops, restaurant, and the best thing is MRT little india is just accross the street. Orchard and bugis just around 10 minutes walk. and nearby hostel have 7eleven. the hostel also clean, have a good share bathroom. and they also serve free breakfast. so overall is very good option for backpacker who want to stay inside the city.
