The hostel is in an awesome location. Around the corner from Arab Street and Sultan Mosque. A very fun, vibrant and safe district. Less than 10 min walk from Bugis for shopping and the MRT station which can take you downtown in 5 min. The dorm rooms were very clean. And NO sightings of rats/roaches/bedbugs/etc. Other than that the hostel...

Five Stones is a great place to stay if you don't mind waiting the queue to use the shower room (for ladies). Best locatio with great foods and shops, and yet only about 5 to 10-min walk to Bugis mrt and Bugis Junction = more foods and more shops!!! The only not-so-good thing when I was there was there were...

This is a centrally located hostel where staff is genuinely helpful and they are 24h present! Some technical issues happen, like in any place, but staff are always there to help. Very flexible, considerate and forthcoming. Needless to say, they have all the amenities of similar places such as free tea/coffee/toast, etc. And the lounge area is quite nice, with...

This was my first time staying in a hostel, and honestly, it's not for me. I stayed in a female dorm room, which comprised of 3 bunk beds (and lockers) squished into a tiny room with no windows. I was near the bathroom which was handy, but the noise travelled to my room. The noise of people on my room...

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.
