Lovely location, free high-speed WIFI & internet, free breakfast with gourmet coffee/tea, free maps & lots of travel advice, free lockers for your valuables.

We're on a lovely pedestrian-only street (no car noise) in the historic Bugis area of the central city, easily accessible to the city's must-see places.

We provide free all the essentials that you'll need, internet, wifi, breakfast, lockers, sheets etc. Let our staff give you all the info you'll need to explore the city, or just sit and relax outside, watching the world go by along our pedestrian street :) We also have a cafe/bar serving cold drinks, gourmet coffee, and a range of beers, discounted for our guests.

Sleepy Kiwi has dorm beds (regular, female and 4-bed) as well as private 2-bed dorms. All rooms are airconditioned, and all beds come with personal reading lights. We have nice thick, 5-star hotel grade mattresses, and bed sheets, pillows are provided.

Prices are per person per night.

From Changi airport take the MRT (underground train) to Bugis station. The airport line is only 2 stops long, so all trains change at Tanah Merah station, trains come every 5 minutes, the whole MRT journey takes about 30 mins.

After midnight the MRT isn't running, but taxis are inexpensive (approx S$25 or 15 Euros) or if you're not in a hurry the shuttle buses are slow and infrequent but only about S$10.

From Bugis MRT take exit B and walk up North Bridge Road (4-lane one way street, walk in opposite direction to the cars), turn right into Arab Street, then immediately left through the arch into Muscat Lane, then the 2nd small street on the right (the pretty marble-stoned pedestrian street, not the back alley service road). We're number 55 Bussorah Street.

If coming overland from Malaysia, bus is much much better than train - try to get a bus that terminates at Golden Mile, from there walk 10mins down Beach Road, then turn right into Bussorah Street.

Located Near

We're in a low-rise heritage/conservation area called Bugis/Kampong Glam. In 19th century british colonial times this was the area where Arabs and Malays lived, and the area retains that flavour today, through the architecture and surrounding shops. In recent years it's become the hippest part of town for nightlife, with lots of ethnic restaurants, including morroccan, turkish, mexican, russian, 'swedish halal' etc etc, as well as a the main shisha smoking area of town.

One of the most enjoyable aspects of travel is that of exploring different landscapes and experiencing sights and sounds that seem a world away from what you're used to back at home. There are so many diverse terrains across the world, from dramatic, desolate mountain vistas to impossibly bustling market streets; and many countries can offer a variety of spectacular sights with astonishing diversity. Here are just five of our favourite views from across the globe.
