We stayed in a private room which consisted of a bunk bed. As a couple this was not ideal but we made do for the five nights we were there. The staff were great from the second we arrived (5am) to the moment we left. They gave us a keepsake photo to take home which was lovely. The shared kitchen... More

Following my daughters recommendation, my son and I stayed at Five Stones for a few nights which was really good. Absolutely friendly staff, helpful and very welcoming. Breakfast with a selection of cereals and toast is okay. There could have been more shower units at peak times and better cleaned. Location is brilliant and all great places can easily be... More

I stayed at this hostel for two nights and overall was quite pleased. The staff are friendly and helpful and the location is very good-- you're not at the centre of it at all but walking distance to both little India, right next door to Arab st (and all the great restaurants) and also walking distance to the golden mile...

The staff are very friendly and willing to help you navigate or give you tips on where to go, where to shop or where to eat. When I stayed they offered a food tour, which I went on and it was very nice to be treated to some local food at a hawker center close to the hostel. The facilities... More

The best hostel in Singapore, my best area is the living room during breakfast or afternoon tea where you can meet other guests hanging out in this cozy living room. the staff are also nice and serve you with smile.

Breakfast is included with the price of the bed, you can choose toast with a selection of toppings (Nutella, butter, jam, peanut butter etc) and four... More

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.
