I stayed here for one day. The hostel is very clean, the bathroom and everthing perfectly functioned. Only problem i had was the snoring neighbour below me. Other than it, everything was so awesome, definitely gonna come back here again next time.

We stayed here on an unplanned overnight in Singapore. It was our first hostel experience (we are "mature" adults) and it was perfect. The rooms are tiny and windowless but very well lighted so brighter and larger than they were. They were very very clean, as were the bathrooms. The security of locked floors was appreciated. Breakfast was fine. It...

Friendly staff, decent showers, free breakfast, free wifi, lockers in each room and very accessible by bus and mrt. It is a hostel, so your roommates may be excellent or terrible. The air conditioning in lounge is great, and there are free umbrellas to borrow. They also organised a food tour while I was here, which was a great way...

An excellent place to stay. Great rooms and accommodation, abundant waters, strategic location, etc. But some of the guests really need to learn how to flush and clean their shoes (smells terribly awful).

Stayed there for 2 nights alone. Very pleased with how clean the hostel is. The toilets were not as dirty/crowded as mentioned by other travellers. My only complaint is that the walls arent really soundproof. But they provide free ear plugs at the reception to make up for that :) Location is great and near to the city centre. The...

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.
