VERY comfortable for a Hostel”
Me and my brother stayed 1 night at Five Stones. I would usually pick a female dorm but since I have my brother with me, I picked at mixed dorm to save money. I was attracted by the layout of the beds and overall design and ambience, and decided to give them a try. We paid about RM53 per bed per night. The hostel is a little hard to find at first and from Bugis station, we got caught in the rain! Luckily we managed with the help of smartphones. The reception is at ground floor and the hostel occupies the whole building lot of 6 storeys plus a rooftop. The receptionist expected our arrival and she is just so lovely. Check-in was swift and smooth and she introduced the hostel to us very clearly and thoroughly. They have washing machines and dryers! First thing that I did was to take a hot shower! I didn't quite like their bathroom. There are only 2 shower stalls per floor if I am not mistaken. And it is seriously crampy. And because of the wire basket hung behind the door, the door cannot stay opened when no one is using to let the humidity go away, there are some tiny flies around. But I loooooved the beds. High ceilings and lower bunk is okay for me to sit up. The mattress' quality is very good and overall not much squeaking noises made when people move in their beds. Quilt is also provided, and it is a very nice one! Unfortunately I forgot to take photos of the hostel, as I usually upload photos along with my reviews. I slept so well at night! Free breakfast from 7am to 11am and guests help themselves with coffee, toast, cereal. If you have a late flight, you can check-out and leave your luggage at the lounge. I assume that the nearest MRT is Bugis which takes about 7 minutes walk. Overall I still rate a 5 star. It is very comfortable for a HOSTEL. Great value for money.
Wonderful first hostel experience ”
This hostel is under a 10 min walk to bugis station, which connects you to the major downtown destinations that you can explore. Just a two minute walk will bring you to haji lane with beautiful street art, which is bustling with tourists during the day and diners at night (food here is slightly expensive ~25 sgd on average). I stayed in the female only dorm on the second floor. There are many floors in his hostel and on the fifth, there is a place you can do your laundry for free (you can buy washing powder at the front). There is even Netflix connected to the tv in the lobby. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and connected with some bunk buddies! The staff were always helpful.
Convenient, value for money and helpful staffs”
I stayed here during my weekend stay in Singapore. Room was clean, bed has power outlet and security was very good. The room was accessible using individual RFID card. The shower has water heater and hair dryer was working. The toilet has a hose (for us asians, this is very very crucial). Walking distance to MRT. Only downside I would say would be the sounds from outside the hostel. The bars outside are open until the wee hours in the morning so you could hear from the room. But it is what to expect as the hostel is located right in a backpacker street. Overall still a very very great hostel for a short stay
The right accommodation for the right price”
This hostel is clean and just right for the price advertised per night. The place is accessible to Bugis MRT station and bus stops. Our room is a private room for two. Clean and very ambient. No cable TV but they stream Neflix. A very excellent wifi connection and the air-con is working well. The downside is that the bathroom and toilet are shared. I stayed on the 5th floor, so I have to go down to the 4th floor to use the bathroom and toilet, because the ladies bathroom is only 2nd and 4th floor while the men's bathroom are located on the 3rd & 5th Floor. But overall, its an excellent place to stay when you are trying to stay on the budget.
Thank you for your kind words!
Best Hostel in SG! ”
Location is really good! Kampong Glam is just at the back of the hostel. MRT is just a few minutes walk and not a boring walk at all as you will pass by the mosque, haji lane and arab street. Bugis market is also just near the MRT station. Bus stop is right infront of the hostel. I tried Bus 961 from Clarke Quay, really good for night outs. Room was clean and sheets were thick and clean. I had a good night sleep during my stay. Bathroom and toilets are also clean. If you are a female traveller request for the 2nd floor where the female toilet is.
Thanks for the great review Stephanie! Your words are much appreciated by the staff here!
I love this hostel ❤”
Stay in Spore for 2 days 1 night. This hostel give us the best hospitality with affordable price. Walking distance to tourist spot (Masjid Sultan) , MRT Bugis Sta, and Bus Sta (Park Royal Sta). The room is clean and safety so good for female traveller. The staff let us drop our baggage here even we already check out and rest a while at their hall before going back to Malaysia. Also have complimentary breakfast.
More than my expectation!!!”
It was a pleasure experience stayed in this hostel. More than my expectation. The room is cheap, clean and tidy, the service of the staff is excellence, and the bathroom also clean. Its so hard finding toilet with the shower, but they have it. And the location is near to every place like restaurant everywhere, near to Masjid Sultan, Bugis street, etc. Will be back to this hostel if i go to singapore again. Thank You five hostel for your great hospitality :)
Thank you very much for your kind words!
Great hostel, good location.”
The hostel is located a short ride from the airport (thus accessible at a reasonable price even at night), but on a brisk walking distance from the center and the sight as well as local subway stations. The staff is super helpful and friendly, rooms are clean and breakfast is awesome. All in all I think it's a superb hostel and will definitely stay again the next time I visit Singapore. The only reason it did not get full points is because the bathroom and shower facilities (even though good) are not the most practical and for some reason the girls bathroom was soaked all the time. Also the only other room for improvement would be a bit bigger lockers as bigger bags or suitcases don't fit, forcing you to leave your bag in front of the beds for other people to stumble upon. But honestly tease things were not issues and should bot be even taken in consideration when choosing this hostel or not.
Everything you'll need is here, a bed to sleep and a shower to keep you fresh. Brrakfast is decent and the staff were great. Location was good! it's in the center of Bugis, Haji Lane, Arab St., Bugis Junction and so much more. For a quick tour of the what Singapore can offer you can find it here. I loved my stay and Singapore too. It's so diveresed you'll get a feeling of belonging. Love it!
For the value of money, this hostel offered a very great location in the middle of bugis junction. You can just walk around the hostel and you can find anything. Not too far from the mrt station aswell. Will defenitely stay here again when i visit Singapore again in the future. 👍🏾
Thank you for your kind words Aminah! Look forward to welcoming you back!
Cheap Hotel yet Clean with Good Hospitality.”
Just fine. Hostel is clean with very kind and helpful staff. Hostel provide free coffee & mineral all day long! Room is small but fine because it's clean. Bath room is too small but it's oke and clean as well. 1-2 minute walk to the night life where the crowd spend their night time but eating and drinking. Nice!. 20 minute walk to Bugis MRT. When you reach there, you can go around Singapore via MRT station. Staff can speak either Mandarin, English, even Bahasa Melayu Indonesia.
Great, Amazing, Affordable”
Hi guys, I want to share my vacation and stayed in this hostel. It was very comfortable, convenient in MRT bugis station. The staff really accommodating. Really good to recommend to those who are planning visit singapore. 5 stars all!!!
Love the stay and the staffs are very helpful”
Compared with the other hostel where I stayed on my last trip to Singapore, Five stones surely more recommended. The bedroom is clean and the location is near Bugis MRT and Bugis junction is a plus. The staffs are also very helpful if you need any help.
FABULOUS FIVE STONES HOSTEL”
it was my first time stayed in Five Stones Hostel. I was came with my groups. When we were booked the hostel via agoda.com, we just wondering that the room pictures are like the fact or not (lol). and while we came, it just very amazing. the staff are very friendly and answer all our questions with patience, the interior very unique and suddenly resfresh our mind by lots of colour! this hostel also very clean, especially on the bathroom! near with the MRT station, just with 5 minutes by walking and that very comfortable. the breakfast also great, over all we will give rate 10/10. we will back to Singapore next year, and will back to Five Stones Hostel again for sure :)
Clean and Cozy Hotel. Near Bugis MRT Station. Friendly Staff.”
I stayed here for 6 days and I must say that I enjoyed it. The bed, pillow and comforter were very comfy. The toilet and shower room were clean. The staff were friendly and accommodating. It's 6-10mins walk from the Bugis MRT station. Breakfast was good. You can find good restaurants near the hostel along Rochor road.
Efficient Hostel to Solo Travelers”
The hostel was located near Arab road and Bugis st. Where there are lots options for food, Drinks, Shopping and anything you can think of. The staff were approachable enough, the place was well kept and clean. Breakfast was simple cereal and toast. Had a nice stay here.
such a nice experience to stay here”
It was such a great experience to stay in this hostel. It took me 10 minutes walking from Bugis MRT station (through the exit B), and also there's a bus stop in front of the hostel (01521 - opp plaza parkroyal) You can take bus number 100, 107, 107M, 961, 961#, or 980. The staff in the hostel were kind. The cleanliness for the room was perfect (I stayed in the private room on the 5th floor), they also provided me with towel and mineral water for free. As for the toilet, it was dirty (there were pee stain on the toilet seat, I had to clean it up first before using it), and also there were some flies-like-but-smaller (I couldn't find the best description for it), in the shower room. Another plus value from this hostel is that lift was available.
Thank you for your feedback - much appreciated!
Best Hostel in Singapore ! Clean & Safe. Great facilities.”
I have tried few hostels but so far here is the best spot for Singapore hostel. Love the facilities & most staffs are friendly. Enjoy the free breakfast, free laundry machine usage, aircond 24 hours, easy access location near Arab Street & Sultan Mosque! Walking distance 1 minute only only to local food stall & bus stop. Safe accommodation area, electronic key card provided. Solo ladies travellers nothing to worry as they have PRIVATE LADIES FLOOR. Clean & bed free of bugs. Yaayyy ! Have come here more than 10 times & satisfied. :) Read their website for more facilities info, there's more.
Five Stones Hostel Singapore”
Five Stones is a well located hostel near Arab Street so there are plenty of options for eating out around the hostel plus a Hawker Centre just five minutes down the road. Also close to the MRT station as well and free breakfast everyday from 7am to 11! They've also just started organising morning trips/activities with the staff. When I was there we went to MacRritchie Reservoir with the staff members/other people staying at the hostel which was a good way to meet people. Hopefully they'll start doing more stuff like this in future. All in all I had no complaints about my stay there.
Thumbs Up For Five Stones Hostel”
It was my first time to stay in a hostel while on vacation which is why I was a bit concerned and I don't know exactly what to expect. But I must say that Five Stones gave me a good impression on hostels. The place looks stylish and I can tell that convenience and cleanliness is a priority. You can easily locate it from either bus/MRT and is strategically located near tourist destinations. They offer everything that a traveler needs when staying in a hostel(e.g. clean sheets/pillows, fast internet, drinking water, microwave, shower rooms complete with hair dryer, soap & shampoo and spacious lockers). Although you'll have to buy an adaptor which is compatible to their plug so you can charge your gadgets in your room. Otherwise, you may do so in the common area where the standard/common plug is available. Food is okay as there's a wide selection on jams/spread as well as cereals though may still improve by offering brewed coffee and alternately changing the menu daily to make breakfast more exciting. Overall, my experience was great and I would recommend the place to anyone. There's value for money as well as for time. Thank you, Five Stones, and may you continue to maintain good customer service to your guests :)
