“If only all hostels were like this! READ HOW IT REALLY IS”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

I stayed in Adler hostel for the whole 4 day visit to Singapore and if Singapore wasn't lovely enough as it was this hostel and its staff made me even more sad to leave!
Located less than a 5 minute walk from Chinatown station it's smack bang in the middle of all transport and the colours and bustle of Chinatown. The dorms are spotless, good sizes and totally secure. You get a pod in effect to yourself! The bed is larger than a single, there is a wide shelf along its side and a huge locker with key which easily fits a 65kg backpack, as well as 3 power sockets a light and just to put icing on the cake a gorgeous thick gold curtain which pulls across for total privacy. The aircon is amazing and there are really good showers on each floor.
The staff are so helpful and the owner Adler is an absolute legend who has travelled a lot and has used his experience of hostels to inspire the most comfortable accommodation at great value. He truly cares about his customers' comfort and even took me to the local food court to advise me on what food to try for the best Singaporean experience and told me all about the history of the place, there's really nothing these guys won't do to make you comfortable. If I could I'd nick the idea and set up in Europe straight away, he has got it so right!

New small boutique hostel in chinatown, 3-5 minutes walk away from the mrt. The place is well decorated. The bedrooms are very well thought out and functional, when you enter to your bunk, there is a super single bed with a side table for you to put your stuffs. A huge locker that can fit more than cabin size, two universal adaptors, bunk lights which light up the whole box. The best part is the curtains which closes and you are cut from the world. There is free towels and ear plugs. Toilets are 4:1 ratio which is pretty decent, two mega huge toilets and two small ones.

The breakfast is quite impressive for a hostel, nothing too grand but something that might make me want to return for... the staff here is extremely friendly and knowledgable. Whole place felt really clean and homely which worked out well for me =)

I have travelled over the past 8 years now, staying in many hostels and many new posh hostels in many part of asia including Singapore. This is honestly the best hostel I ever stayed in the World.

Firstly the property is very clean and well managed, everything looks pristine and well thought out.

Secondly, I will strongly commend that the beds are really the best I have ever slept in any hostels, and many hotels. the linens were great, but that is not all. the cabin/pods/bunks have well designed lockers which can fit larger than cabin size bags. 2 Universal plugs to charge all your stuffs, no need to call front desk and ask, privacy curtains where u close and its all off and ambience light for the entire cabin. loved the tall ceilings in my room as well.

Thirdly, The breakfast is the best I ever seen in any Hostels, why? Its real food, not SUPER BREAD that every hostel thinks that is all we need. Its not a amazing spread of food but actually a small variety of local food, fresh fruits and cakes on top of the super bread(they have a universal spread of spreads) its what I call Cozy!

Lastly (There is more but I only have a 2000 characters limit for Agoda), The people here are not just great customer service but they have a real heart, helping with the luggages, chatting with you, helping you with itinerary, always eager to help. Thank you DJ and his Team! I love Adler Hostel!

p.s they do sell a amazing beer brewed in Singapore, and prepare a $20 (they accept foreign currencies such as AUD for me) deposit for key deposit.

It has the quality of a hotel. The bed, pillows blanket were all very clean and of good quality.There were two unisersal power plug which really came in handy.

A super Single bed, which is comfy for a big guy like me.
I really liked the cabinet locker just next to the bed for storage of important items.
A pair of new earplug was provided, which was very considerate. I didn't use it as I had my ipod.

Although I require it, there is a washing+dryer machine for laundry. Which would be nice if I were to stay in Singapore for a longer period.

Although I had only stayed for a night, I would go back Adler for future trips to singapore. Their service was good and considerate. Good job and keep it up.

This is a newly opened boutique hostel in Chinatown. The place looks exactly like the photos, was really well appointed and clean. Beds were the highlight with clean and hotel quality sheets. Curtains has a really nice touch to provide some privacy. The staff here was very attentive and hospitable. DJ heared my shuttle bus stopping and went out to open the door for me. He also allow me to check in early at 11am and help me with my luggage and assisted me with many queries and even let me have a shower 6 hours after I have checked out.

There should be more luxury hostels like this -- priced in between rock-bottom basic hostel prices and the high-end hotel prices. Very comfortable, great breakfast buffet (noodles, fish balls and sausages, dumplings -- not just Wonder bread and jam), pleasant and helpful staff, free Wifi throughout, clean and relatively large capsule beds with earplugs and bath towel provided. Showers are in same stall as toilets, which is a bit odd. Not a party culture, which is a pro or con depending on your demographic. Definitely a pro for me. Located less than a 5-minute walk from Chinatown MRT. Great time, will totally go there again next time I am in Singapore!
