Property Description

Nestled in the heart of the city, Shophouse Hostel is less than 30 minutes from Changi International Airport, Shophouse The Social Hostel is located at Arab Street, a heritage area famous for its heady mix of arts, culture, dining and fashion. A 5-minute walk from Bugis MRT Station, Nicoll Highway MRT Station. Not forgetting, Golden Mile Bus Complex and Queen Street Bus Terminal, for those coming in and out from neighbouring Malaysia. Shophouse combines affordability, comfort and convenience in a charming historical building.

Staying central has its perks. It means it is easy to get around the major attractions such as Little India, Clarke Quay and Marina Bay Sands which are just a 20 min walk away. Whereas, getting to Chinatown is just 15 mins, direct via train.

Here for a music festival or convention? Shophouse Hostel is located one MRT stop away from the National Stadium, Indoor Stadium, Suntec City Convention & Exhibition Centre and Marina Bay Sands. We are also only two stops from Gardens By The Bay and Fort Canning Park.

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.

For travelers who wish to travel comfortably on a budget, Shophouse the Social Hostel provides free wifi , breakfast and facilities such as shared computer terminals, a social lounge filled with books, movies and video games, laundry service and a luggage storage. Each room is equipped with an electric socket and reading light. Shophouse also provides a special ladies only floor for our female travellers.

Spending your nights here in Shophouse Hostel means that you'll be staying in one of Singapore's major cultural enclaves.
Also known as Singapore's Muslim Quarter, Kampong Glam has been revitalised over the years, bringing back it's former colour and vibrancy of the area. Traditional businesses like carpet and textile shops have blended in with an influx of indie cafes, local fashion boutiques and modern art galleries.

Latest Review

" I was staying at a higher end hostel and was not loving the environment there so I booked with shophouse. There a lot of great things about this hostel, but the actual facility needs some work. Some of the windows don't fully shut, the showers are so close to the toilets, so everything gets wet, and it just looks a bit run down. The beds, pillows and linen were comfy and the bathrooms were more private than some hostels. The hostel was in a great location to so many shops and cafes! "
