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.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- As cliché as that sounds, Shophouse was started by a couple of best friends, backpackers who couldn't travel the world (yet) and wanted to bring it to them instead. So grab us if you have a minute to spare, we all have a wanderlust tale we'd love to hear or share. Less than 30 minutes from Changi International Airport, The Shophouse is located at Arab Street, a heritage area famous for its heady mix of arts, culture, dining and fashion. A 5-minute walk from Bugis MRT Station, Nicoll Highway MRT Station or Golden Mile Bus Complex, Shophouse combines affordability, comfort and convenience in a charming historical building. ... more less
