I would stay there again if I ever go back to Singapore. There is a small kitchen which is great, and always has free tea and...

This hostel is in a good location (10min walk from bugis station + bus stop just outside), good facilities and even a food tour. The only issue I had was that the receptionists there should try to have a more warm and welcoming attitude towards the guests. One of them gave me a very cold and frustrated look when I...

The rooms and bathroom was very clean on my floor (the female only floor) the breakfast is very good and the lounge area is very nice. They have...

This place is great, but has its cons as well. Location is great. Rooms are clean, beds are very comfortable, breakfast is really good, and the split shower floors is a smart move to make women feel safer. However, the hostel is a bit pricey, and I agree with some precious comments...too busy, and people are really noisy and disrespectful...more...

For someone who like to get the most out of their stay in Singapore I would not recommend this place, people are disrespectful and you won't get enough sleep (in dorm) if it wasn't for the rude people who showered, screamed and turned the lights on during the night I would've gave them five stars! But since it was impossible...

Sadly this hostel has become too popular. It now attracts regular travelers as well as backpackers and therein lies a problem the staff has not much control over. However I believe they could do a couple of things. First off the good... excellent location, strong wifi, free laundry facilities (two sets of washer/dryer), elevator (Yet not handicap-accessible due to the...

The location of this place is very good - right next to Arab Street and about a 10 minute walk from the subway. The bunk was comfortable and clean, and the staff were very friendly - they even sent a very useful welcome email, setting out how to get to the hostel, which was very useful. However the bathrooms were...

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.
