The pictures gloze over the reality. When we arrived after a long trip we stayed in the hostel for 1 night. I am happy that it was just 1 night because in our room we just saw local (probably homeless) people and it smelled very nasty. I should never recommend this hostel to anyone. You can better pay a few... More

Stay there for 3 nights Location is good.. near Bugis MRT station, Bugis Junction, Albert Center. But the room is very very narrow and the bathroom is so smelly and dirty. For Singapore's price, this hostel is cheap

The hotel located in 10 minutes walk from MRT Bugis station, and the bust stop is just 2 blocks away. I stayed for 3 days and 2 nights with private bathroom. Price is so so. You got basic room, basic breakfast, but nice staff will help you around. Actually the room is kinda shabby, maybe because there's no window to... More

The staff is't friendly, the toilet is cleaned by a hose so it becomes a pool and the airconditioning in the rooms make you sick! The beds and the sheeds are fine but some guests seem to stay a very long time it the hostel so the rooms turn into their personal rooms and become messy

Staying in Kampong Glam

Neighborhood 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 colored 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 Center 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.
