great option for solo travelers or travelers who d not want to spend too much on accommodation. only downside was that toilet was a little foul-smelling during peak hours but it was fine at night. not a big issue anyway. other than that, the stay was great

Everything in this hostel is good except the cleanliness. Not only the toilet is messy all the time but also my pillow case smells so bad, even I had to clean wash it :(

    It's Great, but...”
    I had a great experience staying in Five Stones. The location is super strategic, near to Bugis MRT, opposite the Bus Station, and next to Haji Lane and Arab Street, you could find many foods including the Halal on those streets. It's also just 7 minutes away from Bugis Market, and Bugis Junction. It has lift to access upper level. Almost of the staffs are friendly, out of six staffs I met, only one that was not. The room I stayed was little bit small, with 8 beds, it felt so narrow with by big body. So was the bathroom and toilet. But that was not a problem for me. But unfortunately, the toilet was bit dirty. Several times I went to toilet, I saw un-flushed pee or deuce. It might not the hotel's fault, but the customer's, but I felt so sad had to see those, LOL. The only cleanliness problem I had was, the bed I was in. I found hairs and dust (or sand, I;m not sure) on my bed when I just arrived. But the AC was great, bed and blanket were comfy, and the breakfast was good.

    Friendly staffs took me around to ensure I know my way and the facilities. They are very kind to allow me to leave my luggage early before my check-in time and the shower room to freshen up that made me feel home. Strategic location to access to most of the tourist attractions, night hangout places, accessible to public transport and bus stations to travel to Malaysia. Peak season hence compromised the cleanliness a little. Overall, good stay experience!

    the staff were very accommodating. they allowed us to leave our bags prior to check in and after check out. the place is clean and location is great. will stay here again. ps: since they want guests to leave their slippers at the door, i hope they can provide slippers that can be used inside the rooms since the floor could be so cold when walking barefoot.

    great”
    they mixed boys and girls in their dormitory type hostel (i feel uncomfortable sleeping with stranger guys in 1 room), their bathrooms are too small for public. you have to wait longer so you must take a bath earlier if you have scheduled to do in morning and also their toilets are not so clean (maybe because of other travellers also?) but their staffs are accomodating. they have unlimited free bfast. but overall, it was still a great hostel.

    One of the best hostel - nice staff from counter services to cleaning staff”
    Only suggestion - is to have regular cleaning of toilets and bath rooms like in the aircrafts (many users and regular cleanings indeed also make cleaning easier and hygienic at least 3 times a day)

    Decent hostel with the basics”
    Good walking distance from the Bugis station (exit at Beach Rd/Duo so that you only cross one intersection). Remember that this is a hostel, so the facilities are basic and minimal. Though we couldn't get the floor for females, the staff during check-in was thoughtful enough to give us the room where the female toilet is located (we were both ladies). Overall, it was a decent stay. Worth the price paid.

    Not worth the price”
    Pros: has the basics (warm shower, decent beds, a/c, water), great location (next to Haji lane and 8 min walk to MRT) Cons: not very clean rooms (please change your dirty mats in the rooms!), not very clean bathrooms with foul smell, staff are nice but not very attentive, no towels provided ($ for rent deposit) Overall, I’m not sure why it’s rated so highly since it the most mediocre stay out of the many hostels I’ve stayed at. It provided the necessities and a pretty good location, but it wasn’t very clean (seemed like staff didn’t really care) and I expected more for the price and in Singapore. By providing better customer service at the desk and a more clean environment for both rooms and bathrooms, it would improve the experience a lot.

    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

    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.

    Location is very good, close to Haji Lane, which is nice if you like hipster bars with live music. I loved it. Little India and also the Bay can be managed by walking. Quiet at night, good breakfast. Making contacts is possible but if you are looking for an action or party hostel then this should not be yours ;)

    I arrived early and since there was a vacant bed the staff allowed me to checked in early which I really appreciate. I like their no shoes/slippers policy inside the hostel that's why the place is so clean. Their linens, beds etc are very clean so as their common toilet. I would definitely recommend them to my friends and I will definitely comeback.

    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.

    A total bullshit”
    Receiptionist during my check in on 30 Nov evening was kind of robot. This is not possible, that is not possible etc. No empathy found in her approach. The room was wet and slippery since water was dripping from ceiling in all over the room. Bathroom was a total mess. Room was full of bad smell. Beds were also wet due to water falling from ceiling. I strongly do not recommend this place. A total waste of money.
