Best Hostel Near Chinatown
I stayed in five hostels over the course of 11 days in Singapore and Royal Hostel was by far the best! Some reviews complained that they shut off the air con from 10-4, but they also opened up the room's windows and let the place air out while the (daily) housekeeping was done. This means it was the least smelly! No moist, sweaty clothing or towel funk like I had experienced in the other hostels. Privacy curtains, a plus. Cold filtered water dispenser and the shared bathroom is in stumbling distance from the door room(s). The staff was cheerful and helpful. There was enough room in the provided locker for my huge knapsack. Also, it is located on Smith St., which is also called "food street", which is a little wacky at night, but the room was surprising quiet! It's close to the MRT (two stops away from Harbour Front and Sentosa) and the famous Maxwell Hawker Centre. Breakfast coupons got me food or beverage at "Nanyang Old Coffee", which I already had been visiting for their delicious iced blended coffees. I extended my initial 2 day stay to 4.
