Property Information:

Shophouse Hostel is made for travellers, by travellers.

As cliché as that sounds, Shophouse was started by a couple of best friends, backpackers who couldn't travel the world (yet) and wanted to bring it to them instead. So grab us if you have a minute to spare, we all have a wanderlust tale we'd love to hear or share.

We offer 6, 8, 12 and 16 bed mixed dorms as well as 8 and 12 bed female-only dorms which lie on an exclusively ladies-only floor.

Shophouse also prides itself on hosting regular social nights on its roof-top terrace and movie room. Think barbecue nights, movie nights and pizza parties. The nearest train station (Bugis) is 300m away, a mere 30-35 minutes direct from Changi International Airport. It would take you about 15-20 minutes by taxi from the airport to reach our doorstep.

Its location, that being smack in between Singapore's CBD, the city's entertainment and shopping belt as well as the party district, makes it easy and quick for one to access the best of the city's offerings.

Guests who stay with Shophouse enjoy:
Fully Air-Conditioned Rooms
Free Breakfast & All-Day Coffee and Tea
Free Wi-Fi and Computer Terminals
Personal Reading Lights and Electronic Sockets
Individual Lockers
Luggage Storage
High Quality Foam Mattress and Bedsheets
Firm Fibre Pillows and Comfortable Quilts
CCTV Security and Room Key Card Access
Discounted Tour and Sightseeing Tickets

And not to mention the most welcoming hospitality from our friendly staff!

We look forward to seeing you in Singapore!

I thought the place was secured but the people staying there were too lazy at times and left doors open to avoid having to swipe their card. This only makes sense early in the morning when trying to be stealthy. The showers spCe was small with the toilet right beside them. Overall I'd come bac
