Adler Hostel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 8, 2013

I have used a few hostels before and know what to expect for a hostel. I booked this as most of the hostels in the lower price range are fully booked. However, I am pleased to say this the best hostel I ever seen not just in Singapore but everywhere else in the world. This hostel is recently open and is very well kempt and clean. The hostel is rather expensive but is well worth the difference, the whole hostel is extremely luxurious in everyway, from the lounge to the rooms and even the toilets. The concierge service was very kind and assisted in all kinds of request. Located just five minutes away from the mrt and doorstep to most of the major buses. If you are looking for a quality stay, this is the best you can get.

Thank you so much, Adler! We were a group of 15 people, staying in the Ivory room for 10 days. Our stay in Adler could not have been better! The hospitality and friendliness from the moment we arrived, allowed us to feel at home in the middle of Chinatown, breathing in the authentic Asia. The place is a much upgraded hostel, with big comfy beds where you have your own locker and space - pull the curtains and you're almost in your own room. However, remember to bring air plugs, and you'll be fine...
The breakfast was a mix of local and continental, which suited us great. Plus, the staff always with a big smile on their faces, more than willing to learn us about Singaporean traditions or how to get around.
I will most highly recommend this hostel to everyone that travel through Singapore - and hope to see more Adler's all around the world in the future. Makes travelling better and safer :)
See you again.

We were part of a group stay who stayed at adler hostel a couple of weeks ago. Me and my companions enjoyed our stay tremendously. The hostel was real neat and very very new. This is sort of communal living so there will definitely be some snoring but they provided ear plugs which are really comfortable to sleep in. The beds was spacious and comfortable. We wasn't very used to the local food so they provided more continental mix for us. Special thanks to Renee and DJ for helping us find the buses to the places we like to go and to suggest new places. :)

Was in Singapore for a short stay and thought of giving this hostel a try. I am delighted with the product and service. Finally, a hostel that understands the importance of quality sleep. Keep up the good work! I'll be back soon!

Why check into a Hotel , if you can check into Adler. We were a group of 15 people staying there for 10 days. Not a problem at all as there were curtains giving everybody a little private space. Room was cleaned every day which made it better than most hostels. I have been traveling a lot and have never stayed at a better hostel in this price range. Enjoyed it a lot. Excellent location close to MIT, city centre, Sentosa and Marina Bay. Different offers on tourist attractions through the hostel.

Thins is the nr 1 place to stay on budget in Singapore!!

if you are looking for good hostel, stop looking cause this is not good but is very good. The place is very comvortable and clean and is like a good hotel. The service is good but showers are a bit cramped and could be improved.. breakfast is a bit limited but good enough to start the day.

Right in Chinatown and about a 10 min walk to the mrt station which was handy. Had to wait outside the entrance as reception opens at 8 and there must have been confusion about my early arrival but no biggie there is a phone number written that you can ring for those kind of problems- was told of a pin code I could use to wait inside. They then kindly allowed me to check in early. Really clean inside- both beds and bathrooms. I was extremely jetlagged so was in no mood to socialise so the private curtains were perfect. It sounded like some people had made friends tho as they were chatting after a night out so there could still be potential to meet people but not a party hostel and bed curtains make it more easier for people to hide away. Receptionists are very helpful but wifi played up the entire time I was there which was a shame! Overall a lovely place to stay if you want a bit of luxury while backpacking on a budget but don't expect to be meeting a whole new bunch of people- nice opportunity for a quiet sleep in a clean bed. Oh and there is a water cooler which is real nice!
