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. Book yourself a capsule bed to crash for a few nights!

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.

We have two beautiful co-working spaces where you can spend the day working peacefully on your venture. We have a communal kitchen and we also offer a simple free breakfast every morning which includes a free flow of coffee, tea, milk and juice.

All rooms are mixed dorms with capsule beds and come equipped with air-conditioning and personal lockers. There are no ensuite rooms; toilets and shower facilities are communal.

    I came to this hostel without being a startupper or entrepreneur but just for knowing people with interesting ideas and mindsets, and that was it! Great friendly atmosphere of a hostel but with great minds about technology and future developments. It’s clean and in a great location to explore the city. Made some very good connections, I’d come there again in the future!

    Well run joint. Great location (next to 2 hawker centres + MRT) Dorms were nice - I stayed in the 10 bed. Really nicely air-conditioned! Beds are capsule beds with electricity socket, light, doona and a curtain to close. Breakfast is nothing special (toast, cereal, boiled eggs) Good hangout spaces Showers and toilets were pretty much standard communal hostel stuff - a bit small and basic but fine.

    Nice staff. It's an older building with the "pods" not as isolating as I was hoping for, and there wasn't as dynamic a vibe as I was hoping for.

    Very Good

    I stayed here for 2 nights, and overall, despite the hostel's great location, I did not have a great experience. Cleanliness: the common baths were not kept clean (i.e. found bandages in the shower), there were ants all around the food table, and my sheets could've definitely used a wash. Atmosphere: As advertised, a lot of the guests here are here for their own work. I did not find it as open-minded or diverse as other hostels I've stayed at. At its price point, there are many Airbnb options.

    If you’re here to travel avoid this hostel. It’s in a good location, but people who stay here are not looking to make friends. I was on the first floor in 10 people room, it’s supwr noisy from outside. Other guests were super rood, someone was packing there bags all three nights at 4am, super loud and absolutely disrespectful to other guests. The shower wasn’t vinteletated and it’s the same cubical with toilet. Its getting super hot there and by the time you done with shower, you need another.
