I stayed here in October and as it was quite warm I loved how the place was air conditioned. Being from New Zealand I wasn't quite used to the Humidity.

This hostel is ideally located (next to Arab Street) to explore Singapore. The facilities are all clean and showers have a nice pressure. Especially the common area is quite nice to hang out. Breakfast is simple (coffee, teat, cereals, toast, jam, and peanut butter), but sufficient and staff is friendly.

Very clean, great wifi, FREE LAUNDRY (you need to supply or buy your own detergent), basic breakfast included and a nice and well-organized common area. Located close to restaurants around Arab St and about a 10 min walk to subway. Pretty quiet and not a party hostel (no bar, evening activities, etc).

The hostel is really neat, clean and well maintained. First thing that strikes me about Five Stones hostel is the dash of color and liveliness that hits you the moment you enter. Situated very close to Clarke Quay, at the heart of Singapore

Booked this hostel way way ahead and collaborated with them if we could all accommodate the room for 6 and reserve for one family. Fortunately, they kept an open communication with us, granted our request, and we had a very pleasant stay with them. This hostel is right in the middle of everything. Their breakfast is okay.

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.
