'Where East meets West...'
Newly opened in 2013, Royal Hostel is a boutique hostel located in the heart of Chinatown. Stay with us in our historic 19th-century shophouse building and relive the nostalgic times when Singapore was a British colony, while immersing yourself in the rich Chinese heritage.

'Good accommodation does not have to be expensive...'
Run by a duo of avid travellers/backpackers, the owners of Royal know that good accommodation does not have to be costly. That is why we strive to deliver high-value accommodation standards at affordable prices.

'Sociable environment with your own private space...'
At Royal, we embrace interaction between different cultures. That is why we have pockets of communal spaces in the common areas and dorms. But we also understand your need for privacy. That is why our dorm beds are all personalised with curtains, bed-lights and charging points for your own comfort.

[ Reception hours are from 9am to 9pm . Do contact us for late check-ins and we will make the necessary arrangements for you. ]

    Can't say anything bad about this hostel. Great place to stay in singapore, chinatown. The only thing would be the breakfast. You get a Coupon for two different restaurants and I could just eat the Toast with kaya because I don't like lunch (rice /noodles/meat) in the morning.
