I had one bad hostel experience in Singapore, so I was very pleased to find this jewel. Really friendly staff, very clean rooms and common area, excellent breakfast til late, free laundry, good Internet. I loved it! The area might not be as exciting as little India or Chinatown, but the MRT is round the corner so you get there in no time.

Well hostel is ok. I didn't tried breakfast but for what I saw they offer it's Singapore standard (jam, toasts, flakes etc). If you are tall (over 190cm) you can have problem to be to big for beds - they are only abt 190cm and a little squeaky. There must be some disco nearby because during night you can feel bass, for good you can put free earplugs to stop this noise if You have light sleep. Last think worth to notice are showers, because hostel has 2 floors and you're unlucky you'll have to change floor to take shower. Overall it's good place you can stay for days.

I went to Singapore with my 2 friends. This guesthouse gave me a warm welcome. I booked the 12 beds dorm type room, which wasn't bad as i firstly imagine (in term of staying with a lot of strangers). It also gave me a clean and warm sheet & blanket, a good wifi, a nice basic breakfast. In a living room, you'll find a Wii which you can share this enjoyable with your roommate. In addition, there are "Friends" series for you too.

This place locates on the second and third floor of the building (men only on the lower floor). In front of the building, you will find the bus station right there!! It's not too far from the subway station and places equally far from two stations, which takes you around 8 minutes by walk.

This place's quit popular which made it's crowded, hardly to find an available seat to sit and have a coffee in the morning (someone had it in the room). Due to less shower rooms (only 3 shower tube and 2 toilets in the second floor and shared it sometimes with those from the third floor), you might have to take more than 30 mins to wait for showering in the morning.

It was okay anyway and should be one of the top choices for you to spend the nights in Singapore.


They provide us a free ear plugs at the reservation desk as well!!!

first came to hotel, I was greeted with friendly staff. she is a very nice girl. its a new experience for me because the first time i try to stay in the hostel with many bunk in a room. I was a little worried about the comfort, because I have never stayed with a lot of strangers in a room. First of all I by the number of 12 people, then I asked to move to a smaller room with 5 guy in 8 dorm in a room.the room and bathroom was clean, and the breakfast is good. the location so close with Clark quay MRT just 5 minutes walk away .Overall they all look good...i'm satisfied with this budget hotel in singapore..

My sister and I stayed here for 2 nights, and were stoked with the service we received. The staff were so friendly and extremely accommodating, the rooms were funky, clean and comfortable. There are secure lockers in each room, so you can lock your valuables away and each room had airconditioning and a personal bedlight. We were in a 6 bed female dorm). The common area was small, but great. I met a lot of people here, and the lounge area was a great place to chill, watch movies and chat to other travellers. Breakfast was simple, but more than sufficient (and free!), and I enever struggled to find a seat to enjoy it. The bathrooms were cleaned regularly, and hot water was continuous!
We were taking a red-eye flight at 2am, so the staff arranged for a shuttle bus to pick us up around 11pm and take us to the airport, as well as let us leave our big suitcases and larger carry-on baggage at the hostel whilst we explored Singapore after checking out.
I would recommend Five Stones to anyone travelling to Singapore (especially if you're doing a 2-3 day stopover), and are looking for an inexpensive, comfortable option in a really convenient location.

Steph, thanks for taking the time to review our hostel after your stay. I really like your point that it is "a great place to chill". Really captures what we are trying to do, give our guests a friendly place to relax after a busy day exploring Singapore. Thanks

For first time traveling to Singapore, having a nice stay @ Five Stones was a great experience. A kind smiley and helpful staf will be a good starting before round the simple but nice city Singapore. Located in a strategic Clarke and near to MRT would be an additional point to recommend this hostel. I would like to stay at here once I get my annual leave again.
Nice Hostel :o)

Room Tip: all was nice room to stay
