Liked: Two lads on reception were so much help! They knew everything about Singapore, from interesting things to see to the ins and outs of getting to Malaysia. Rooms were basic but perfect for backpackers. You have to go up three flights of stairs so make you're fit and able to do so as there is no lift. 5 minute walk to Lavender MRT. Trains are very reasonable. Not the prettiest of places but good value for money.

Liked: Backpackers@SG was actually better than what I expected. The staff was very friendly and helpful and very professional and made me feel comfortable from the start. I would like to thank both of them for their professionalism and help. The place was clean, the showers worked and the internet connection was good so overall very happy with my stay. The only down for me was the other guests I stayed with who all snored so I was unable to sleep but that is not there fault.

Liked: Good location near lavender mrt

Disliked: Safe nots in room, mine was not even on the sane floor. Felt safer carrying my valuables around with me rather than leave them at the hostel where the door is always open and there's not always someone on reception checking who goes in and out. Toilets and shower were always dirty.

25 July 2014 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Staff was very nice and much willing to help the travelers. It was quite close from the MRT station, Arab street, Little India, and 20-30mins walking distance from the Marina Bay. Convenience stores are near and a small Chinese market was available near the hostel. Had a good time meeting new friends there.

Disliked: Some guests were staying for a long period of time(one guy having an internship in SG) and some families with kids were staying there which made the place little awkward and crowded. The room I stayed was full of stuff they brought. The fridge was always full. They prepare the breakfast a night before (Before the staff goes home at night). bread, peanut butter.... hum... honestly I did not feel comfortable the food being out in the hot&humid temperature for hours. Recommend fixing the issue.

Liked: Rooms are very clean, with air-con, quiet and breakfast is included. A key card only allows people to enter a room who actually live there. Breakfast is included and to be had from 5 am - 12 pm, which is very backpacker friendly. Wifi is good and fast.

Disliked: A few more toilets wouldn't be too bad and some hooks around the sink areas would be lovely.
