My friend who visited here before had recommended this place to me. I came alone and stayed at Female Dormitory. The place was clean and safe. They also provide mini breakfast, cereal with milk and fresh fruit, and provide free & high speed Wifi. The price is cheap, so worth the money. I would recommend.

If you are thinking of staying here, look at the reviews for Sleepy Kiwi as they really are one and the same, they might be trying a name change to distance themselves from bad reviews! You can do better than this dive, it's such a shame because it is a great location and a nice old building but it's potential... More

Location and price are OK (however one can easily find better). But it is THE place to meet fellow backpackers: a real institution! I now live in Singapore and come back sometimes to get a coffee. If I was to come back as a tourist, I would rather choose some place in Chinatown, I find it more convenient.

If you are looking for a place near Bugis, this hostel is not a bad choice. Shared bathroom is not that good, specially the door. My sister and I stayed at dorm type room (all female), bed is okay - was able to sleep comfortably. There is common computer area that can be used, free wifi connection is good too.... More

Booked a double bed private room with shared bathroom. The only thing is, there is no wall above the door, which by the way leads out in a big noisy dorm with people coming and going all night. Poor lighting and no power outlet, rubbish service. Bed was comfy and bathroom acceptable. Great location.

他原本的名字是想睡覺的山姆現在改名成為想睡覺的KIWI已經換過老板了,所以讓我覺得跟之前差很多,也希望大家可以看過我的分享後,避免過去囉!老實說除了拍照好看以外其他我找不出什麼有點跟好處了,希望大家可以去別的地方試試看! How terrible we are! It's so awful ! Bad smell because they panted when you sleep there. It's so crowed and hard to get out. Although they always show the great pics for tourist but they didn't want to take care of you only the money!

As soon as we arrived we were welcomed and made to feel at home. A friend and I stayed in the girls only dorm which was a little cramped but comfortable and clean. Staff were always on hand to help and were very friendly. Good location near to Bugis MRT station. Great free breakfast and cheap drinks/beers available from reception...I... More

If your a backpacker or travelling on the cheap this is the place to be. Friendly staff, free internet, quiet dorm room, amazing price-per-night for Singapore and lots more. Situated in Little India it is central to lovely pubs, sis-ha cafes and Asian cuisine restaurants. Within walking distance of the metro line to centre of the city or the airport.... More

Our double room was small because part of it was taken up by a large square box covering .....what I don't know(service area I guess!) Mattress was comfortable and the window could be opened but awkward to get at. Had a walk through the dorm area to get to this private room. 2 showers/toilets upstairs and downstairs so adequate.

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.
