Hi there! We are the first hostel in Singapore with themed rooms, located in Clarke Quay and minutes away to key tourist attractions and the heart of Singapore night life.

All our rooms feature brightly coloured walls and showcases Singapore's cultural elements in a new light. Our room murals were designed by a local artist & some of our lounge area collages are done by the creative hands of our hostel staff.

We offer 6/8/10 and 14 bed mixed dorm as well as private rooms. Ladies should definitely check out our ever popular bright pink 6 bed female dorm!

5 Reasons to Stay with Us!

1. Central Location - We are 5 minutes away from Clarke Quay MRT and 10 minutes away from Raffles Place MRT/Chinatown MRT. Less travel time equals more time to cover key attractions in Singapore!

2. Cleanliness - We strive to make a cleanliness a top priority at the hostel so every nook and cranny gets a good scrub down regardless if it needs it or not!

3. Bedding - Our beds are top grade orthopaedic 8-inch spring mattresses. We don't know about you but 8 inches is enough to satisfy our backache needs (maybe other needs too!) Plus our beds are anti-dustmite and regularly cleaned with odor removers. Say bye bye to stinky tofu beds.

4. Themed Rooms - Like we mentioned before, our rooms are designed by an local artist to showcase different aspects of Singapore's heritage and culture.

5. Special Deals and Discounts - All our hostel guests are entitled to discounted tickets for major tourist attractions (ask us!), spas and nightspots. Yay for living it up in Singapore!

A) By Train

The MRT (train) typically starts from 5:45am all the way to 11:45pm. If you will be arriving past 10pm, you may like to consider either taking a taxi from the airport (which will cost approximately $30 - $45 after 11pm) or the Airport Shuttle which costs $9.00SGD/one-way transfer (Look out for the 'Ground Transport Desk' at all Arrival Halls in Changi Airport)

A one-way train ticket from Changi Airport MRT to Raffles Place MRT cost $2.10SGD ($1.10SGD for the fare + $1.00SGD for a deposit). Upon arrival at Raffles Place MRT, you can head back to the ticket machine to get a refund of $1.00SGD (alternatively, you can keep the green transport card for up to a month before the refund is invalid). There is also a new type of one-way train ticket that comes in the form of a white paper ticket - this ticket can be used up to 6 times and will only charge a non refundable deposit of $0.10SGD for the first trip.

You can also get an EZ-LINK card from the Control Station which will cost $12.00SGD - $7SGD stored value and $5SGD for the card. An alternative option would be to get the Singapore Tourist Pass. It costs $10SGD (1-day ticket), $16SGD (2-day ticket), $20SGD (3-day ticket) and is usable on both public trains & buses. This excludes a fully refundable deposit of $10SGD.
