First off, what a welcoming and modern hostel this place is and the reviews reflect it. I feel slightly remorseful for not giving it the full 5 stars. But, I'll get to that later. Good points: - Welcoming and friendly staff -Clean bedding with locker -Strong wifi on all floors including reception -Lovely area -Fantastic location with regards to MRT... More

I have just returned home from my second stay at Five Stones. This time I shared a bunk room with my brother, on level 3, for 5 nights. A few negatives this stay for me: - female bathrooms were not on my level, the lacquer on the floor in our room was peeling and kept getting stuck to our feet,... More

My friend and i stayed at a 10 mixed type dorm at this place and my stay was super! Staff are accommodating and the room was very clean as well as the Men's bathroom. Highly recommended as it is also near Bugis MRT station.

After feeling from another crappy hostel we arrived to the Five Stones Hostel. It has a great location, you are able to walk to a lot of places or take public transport. The common area is really comfy and most of the people who stay there is really young. It is worth the money you pay for sure.

My boyfriend and I booked a private room for a three-night stay. I have to say we were very disappointed with this place. The private room was very small, the price was not worthy for that type of accommodation. We are skinny people but we still felt there was no space in the room. The paint on the floor came... More

I always recommend this hostel whenever a friend would ask me where to stay in Singapore. Though I've only stayed to two hostels in Singapore, this one is really the best. I also asked my other friends about their opinions on the hostels they've stayed in; and either they weren't satisfied or they were disappointed. This is a very cute... More

Value for money. Clean. Secure. Great location. Just beside Haji Lane where there are a lot of great shops and restaurants to see. Decent walk to Chinatown MRT, which is the best way to get around SG. Free bfast is a choice between a good variety of breads, spreads and cereals. The hallways and stairways were hot. There was a...

Nice hostel and clean. Stayed in the 8 bed female dorm with locker. The dorm is quite packed, but sufficient and comfortable for a short stay. Ear plugs are free at the reception. Simple breakfast is provided, cereal and toast.

Stayed 4 nights at Five Stones. The dorm was clean, bright and nice. The common area was nice with a tv and movies, games and such. Breakfast was included and consisted of cereal, toast and nutella, more or less. Not the best, but still nice that it was included. The hostel is on beach road, within walking distance of supermarkets,... 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.
