Having wandered the streets of LIttle India in search of a hostel with a free bed for 3 hours, I was delighted that Shophouse had space for a small and weary traveller. Note to self: for future reference, do not turn up on National Day in Singapore without having booked somewhere to stay.
The dorm was a little crowded and basic, but by Singapore standards is well priced. Areas of the hostel were incomplete, but it showed the foundations of a great hostel.
Most importantly, the hostel is quite well located, and the staff are lovely and fantastically helpful. I would definitely stay here again when the works are complete, as I think it will be an excellent hostel.
