“Best Hostel in Singapore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2012

you can get the best hostel experience here! the location is perfect for travellers, close to Singapore's landmark and most visited areas such as the Merlion Park, Clarke Quay, China Town and many more. Bus stop is right where you step out the building, and MRT station is just a few blocks away.

Rate is a little bit more expensive then any other similar hostels, but worth every penny for it's extra values, such as: unique theme-clean and comfy rooms, washing facilities, separate male/female bathrooms and great staff service.

I was taking first-timer group with me, and it was perfect place to stay for us. My friends, first time been to Singapore and first time stayed in a hostel were all happy! I will definitely recommend this hostel to anyone!

The only annoying experience was because we didn't get the female dorm since it was full when we booked our stay, we had to stay in the mixed dorm and the room mates were snoring on their sleep..but of course, it could happen anywhere.
Maybe it will be good if they can add more homogeneous rooms :)

Room Tip: Book early to get the room to suits you, as they're very high demanded!

Hi Fishy, thanks for your compliments! Yep, our female dorms are really popular so it's a pity your group did not manage to stay in it this time around. Agreed on the snoring room-mates issue thought, thats why we have began providing 3M ear plugs for guests :) Nevertheless, hope you will be able to come back next time and stay with us in our female dorm! :)

If you are new to Singapore, staying at Five Stones makes traveling the city easier! It's walking distance to China Town (where souvenirs are cheap and photo ops are plenty!), Circular road, Boat Quay and Clarke Quay (for night outs and food trips)! The hostel even has a bus stop right out front and with two MRT stations also nearby.

The reception at Five Stones also serve as a free tour guide! You can ask them how to go about the city by foot, by organized tours or whatever and they have the right answers for you plus maps to help you not get lost or even discounted tickets to various attractions like Universal Studios Singapore! We saved a lot of money from the deals we got from them. :)

Free wifi and the TV/DVD in the private room plus plenty of movie selections to choose from is a big thumbs up. Oh, and the uber comfy bed and pillows! They even provide towels to use. :) And also the free hot/cold drinking water is a big plus since drinking water could be pretty expensive outside.

The toilets and bath are also clean so we did not have any issues with using the communal :) - except for moments when the guests themselves don't clean up well. :s They also provide free use of their washing machine, drier and iron. Just make sure you bring your detergent so you can save or you can just go buy from them. They also sell toiletries and some snacks but only when the reception is open (i think from 8am to 10pm).

All in all we had a great time and really won't hesitate to stay with Five Stones again. :)

Stayed for 7 nights in the Standard Private Double room.

Room Tip: The private rooms are quieter because it is farther from the streets. It doesn't have a window b...

We were lucky to walk-in to Five Stones hostel while roaming around the Clarke Quay street of hostels and they had vacancies cuz another guest did not show up. As we did not do much planning, we really don't expect more than a basic accommodation but this place blew our socks off. It's was very nicely designed, more spacious than other downtown hostels we have been to and had extremely comfortable bedding.

The extra touch of service came with the complimentary ear plugs they offered because their neighbours was carrying out some renovation.

The location was good and the staff was ready to recommend anything from food to nightlife. Beer was also sold at the hostel at a much cheaper price than anywhere we could find outside (bear in mind beer is Singapore is really way more expensive compared to the rest of the world).

Overall five stones hostel is easily one of the best hostels I have stayed in. If hostels came with star ranking , this would be five stars!
