About ServiceWorld Hostel

A place to stay, but you can serious remote work here too with high speed Fibre Optics Internet access at 1000 mbps. The ServiceWorld Chinatown Hostel is a premier hostel adjacent to People’s Park, the site of the original historic Chinatown in Singapore, which is located at the entrance of the Chinatown MRT Station. Chinatown is known for its exotic and colorful crowded streets, authentic shop houses and the long stretches of eating places in various cuisines, cheap souvenir shops and shopping centers. Although this hostel is located in a crowded Chinatown street, one can still get close to nature to enjoy morning exercise or take a stroll in a garden setting, because the entrance to the Pearl's Hill City Park is at the rear of the hostel building.

The Hostel is located at the heart of chinatown, offering convenience and accessibility not to mention it is located directly above the supermarket so whatever you may need, you can always go down and get it at the supermarket! And at the rear of the hostel, there is a huge park of 10 acres, that guest can go to and enjoy the day.

The ServiceWorld Chinatown Hostel often acts as a central point for the discerning guests to visit the historic sites in and near Chinatown and numerous tourist attractions nearby.

Location Information

The ServiceWorld Chinatown Hostel is located at the junction of Pearl's Hill Road and the Upper Cross Street. The nearest MRT station is the Chinatown Station that connects to the East West Line to the Changi International Airport. It is located on a third storey of a commercial complex and a leading supermarket is just right downstairs so shopping for some necessities is a lot easier. It is very close to cheap eating places that operate on a 24-hour shift. So close to many interesting points in Singapore, imagine how much you can cut in spending on trains, buses and taxis. You can walk within minutes to the famous Clarke Quay and Boat Quay along the banks of the legendary Singapore River, or to Empress Place, Raffles Place, Asian Civilization Museum, the Chinatown Heritage Centre, the Buddha Tooth-Relic Temple, Sri Mariamann Hindu Temple, the Chinatown Pagoda Street that is famous for its long stretch of shop houses. If you like to shop for apparels and electronics, the People's Park Complex, People's Park Centre and OG Department Store are our neighbors few steps away. And because you won't leave Singapore without a memento of Sentosa, you can quickly travel to the island because Harbourfront, the stepping door to Sentosa, is only two MRT stations away. Arab and Queen Streets and the Beach Road to take your buses to Malaysia and Thailand is less than 10 minutes by bus.
