I choose the mix dorm because it's the cheapest, the bed is not comfy at all, mattress is hard, and I can't sleep because people keep talking and laughing so loud especially boys, bathroom outside the room. Location near Arab street so it's easy to find melayu food that suite my Indonesian taste. You can walk to bugis to go...

There are better hostels around there. This can only be a short transit. No problem for 1 night stay. Nothing more. The good thing is only its location. Near to eateries and Sultan Mosque, a tourist attraction.

I heard a lot about this hostel, and mostly they told me it is a good place to stay and strategic in terms of location. They said it right about the location however I was surprised that with the price I pay (around Sing$50/night) they gave me and my friend an old room, smelly like I don't know how to...

Location is very strategic, Bus Station is in 1 minute walk, many halal food restaurant nearby, MRT Station is in 5 minutes walking distance or 1 Bus Stop away. Bugis Junction is 2 Bus Stop away. Room is very standard, toilet and shower can be much cleaner.

3 times I've stayed here, 2012, 2013. and 2015. Good price for a backpacker in a strategic location. Near MRT Station (Bugis or Lavender), and many bus stops around here. With just 1 bus you could go directly to vivocity / sentosa station, orchard road, and chinatown from here, no need to transfer / change buses. Walking distance to Kampong...

Nice spot, clean room and bath room and worth the price. But the common space is limited. Wifi works very well. They provide simple breakfast in the morning. Perfect location, close to the MRT station.

Staying in Kampong Glam

Neighbourhood Profile
Kampong Glam
This traditionally Malay enclave of Singapore offers an alluring array of shops, cafes, and bars. A walk down Haji Lane offers quirky shopping, while one block over, Arab Street is a treasure trove of brightly coloured fabrics, clothing, and Turkish rugs. Stop for a leisurely coffee or cocktail and watch local kids play traditional games along the lane. Also home to the Malay Heritage Centre and one of Singapore’s most prominent mosques (Sultan Mosque), Kampong Glam is a must-visit for a tantalizing taste of Malay life in this city.
