Stayed 3 nights after splashing out on expensive accommodation one night, after staying at the marina bays sands it was definitely different. But it was clean and tidy, air conditioned and a cool location. Lockable boxes under the beds. Very close to Arab st and sultan mosque which was bustling and vibrant as the sun went down, all the eateries... More

Had a 3 days 2 night stay and it was comfortable for the price paid. Not much breakfast choice (mandatory to opt for breakfast in agoda). Bathroom was pretty clean but shampoo wasn't replenished quick enough. Staff service was remarkable. They were friendly and helpful.

Me and my sister stayed here for 2 nights in June. We found the hotel to be clean and well maintained throughout the stay and the staff were always very helpful. The breakfast was good and very filling and there is a coffee machine available 24 hours a day which really helped cope with the jet lag! We stayed in... More

I booked this accommodation based on reviews and now wonder how they even have a rating above 1. They never answered my emails and when I called they were rude and clueless. Nothing really changed when I got there. The staff clearly don't give a falafel. No bottled water - as was listed and no locker to keep my valuables... More

I always love to stay at this hostel every time I visit Singapore for holidays. First, it's located on the Arab Street - halal food is everywhere. Second, near to MRT Bugis, what more can you ask for? Third, Mustafa Shopping Centre is just around the corner by bus.

The Pod is nicely designed in a small space and mostly full, even on weekdays. Their breakfast was good though no labels for food and I had almost eaten chicken, though being a vegetarian. Having said that, I still had an enjoyable time having almost a hostel experience. Felt like a teenager with many carefree young guys and girls around.... More

We stayed there for a few nights for a short trip to Singapore, and were happy with our choice. The place is really nicely located, just a few minutes away from the Bugis train station, and in a very cool neighbourhood filled with great places to eat and small shops. The staff there is really helpful and the place really... 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.
