Great location in the Arab quarter, only a few minutes from Bugis MRT. I stayed in a 10 bed dorm, everything was clean. Great value for money (free breakfast), the staff was very helpful and friendly!

I have just returned home from my second stay at Five Stones. This time I shared a bunk room with my brother, on level 3, for 5 nights. A few negatives this stay for me: - female bathrooms were not on my level, the lacquer on the floor in our room was peeling and kept getting stuck to our feet,...

My friend and i stayed at a 10 mixed type dorm at this place and my stay was super! Staff are accommodating and the room was very clean as well as the Men's bathroom. Highly recommended as it is also near Bugis MRT station.

Love the place very convenient great staff very clean right in the heart of things. Great air-conditioning necessary for Singapore's humid weather. Bus 980 across the street takes you directly to little India for great Indian food. 5$sgd for Indian rice. Nasi biryani local lingo.

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.
