Property Description

Are you a young startup or entrepreneur on a budget, busy building your business venture and need an affordable yet soulful accommodation in the heart of Singapore? Then look no further!

Come to TRIBE THEORY - Startup Hostel where we understand the journey of entrepreneurship. Tribe Theory is a space for you to explore and engage with like minded people on the same entrepreneurial journey. We are a community of startups and entrepreneurs in the heart of Singapore.

Intimate I Comfort I Cosy I Passionate - Tucked away in the most vibrant corner of Singapore's exciting heritage neighborhood of Chinatown / Ann Siang Hill, steps away from the central business district! We strive to deliver beyond the promise of clean rooms and a safe environment, because we know what being a young entrepreneur on a budget is like.

Tribe Theory is an entrepreneur centric hostel housed in the heritage shophouse of the oldest Chinese clan in Singapore. Every brick and tile of this building, and of this neighborhood, is seeped in the history and DNA of the entrepreneurial spirit. Our map will show you where conglomerates next door in the Central Business District began as startups in the heart of Singapore and grew into blue chip companies.

Located a short 3-5 minutes walk from 2 different MRT Stations (Chinatown and Tanjong Pagar) on 3 different lines, getting around the city will be a breeze. Singapore’s busiest and most famous hawker and food centres - Maxwell Food Centre, Amoy Street Food Centre and Chinatown Food Street are at our doorstep. Enjoy value for money and mouth-watering hawker food right at our doorstep, a quintessential Singaporean experience.

    Very Good

    Bed Bugs There are definitely bed bugs in the dorm. So I told the reception, who seemed like already knowing, didn't even want to see the bed and let me check out immediately. Besides being bitten, there were blood stains on my sheet. This can happen in every hostel but I'd expect proper care taking. However, when I came back that evening I saw that my bed was prepared for the next guest, even with the same bed sheet. Also while I was there, I didn't see them informing other dorms guests.

    Very Good

    Opted to stay here during that particular weekend since this place is the cheapest that I could get. The check-in was tad late because the bed was not ready yet by 2 p.m, so I was given another bed as an option, and I accepted it. I found so many strands of hair on the bedsheets, but I was so tired that I just kept it to myself (I arrived in Singapore at 6.45 am), so probably in terms of housekeeping they should done better.

    This hostel was in poor condition. We stayed one night and left the next day for a hotel. The bathrooms are filthy and they want you to walk around barefoot. Most importantly, BEWARE OF THE BED BUGS!! This place is clearly infested. When we confronted them about the bed bugs the staff explained that they did get bed bugs twice in the last two months. They said they were sure they got rid of them. Even if they did get rid of them, they did not bother to get new sheets. The bed linens were filthy.
