Where to stay - backpackers

There are quite a few backpackers inn accros Singapore. Here are a few that I recommend, in different parts of Singapore:

Plus: Cheap, clean, near to the Chinatown MRT station.
Minus: No staff around, the room is very small hence close to each other, no privacy.

Betel Box Backpackers Hostel, Geylang

Minus: Far from the city center.

Lollypopcorn, Ang Mo Kio
