I spent a week here when I first came to Singapore. Actually it was also my first time staying in a hostel for backpackers. The place left me with good impression: nice location, good service, nice room, nice staffs, etc. In conclusion, this hostel was good and suited my budget well.

I stayed here on December 2013, it was my first time went to Singapore. And because yesterday I passed this street and see ABC Hostel, now it reminds me that I haven't share my experience during my stays there. It was quite nice for a backpacker, because the whole service, such as security systems, wifi, and breakfast, all was good....

Once arrived the unfriendly woman at reception seemed inconvenienced to get our room and barely spoke to us. The reception room was small and dirty and we could only see older homeless type people staying. When taken to our dorm...

The pictures gloze over the reality. When we arrived after a long trip we stayed in the hostel for 1 night. I am happy that it was just 1 night because in our room we just saw local (probably homeless) people and it smelled very nasty. I should never recommend this hostel to anyone. You can better pay a few...

Stay there for 3 nights Location is good.. near Bugis MRT station, Bugis Junction, Albert Center. But the room is very very narrow and the bathroom is so smelly and dirty. For Singapore's price, this hostel is cheap

Staying in Kampong Glam

Neighbourhood 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 coloured 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 Centre 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.
