What we say: 3.5 stars

Styled after an Australian corner pub, the Prince of Wales is equally popular for its cheap rooms and cheap pints. The bar and bathrooms are on the ground floor and the mixed dorm is above, so you may find yourself walking past customers while carrying a towel and toothbrush. Private rooms have a queen bed and TV, and share a bathroom between the three of them. The POW is a very friendly, very casual spot and you'll probably spend more time in the pub than the room. Rates include WiFi and a DIY breakfast of toast and eggs in the courtyard. The location, right in the heart of Little India at the corner of Dickson and Madras streets is convenient for both eating and sightseeing and you're only a short walk to the SMRT.
