Maybe I expected too much from the guide book that Sleep Sam is the must stay in Singapore. I found it disappointed when first arrived. Yes, it is nicely decorated with dark wood, but the front is many furniture jammed in small space.
Lovely location, free breakfast, free high-speed WIFI & internet, free lockers for your valuables, free maps & lots of travel advice! We're on a lovely pedestrian-only street (no car noise!) in the historic Bugis area of the central city, easily accessable to everywhere you want to see :)
Our place is a heritage-listed conservation building located on a lovely pedestrian-only street in the historic Bugis area of the central city, easily accessable to everywhere you want to see. 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 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 bed come with a reading light. We have nice thick, 5-star hotel grade mattresses, and bed sheets, pillows etc are provided.
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.
Bus from Malaysia:
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.

Maybe I expected too much from the guide book that Sleep Sam is the must stay in Singapore. I found it disappointed when first arrived. Yes, it is nicely decorated with dark wood, but the front is many furniture jammed in small space. Room was not my selected "6 beds in female only room" from this website, but a 12-bed room only (this website seemed has wrong info about the room selection). Other than that, the location is good and convenient, room and facilities are clean, breakfast is simple but decent. I slept well in the quiet neighborhood. Overall, it's a good stay.

A great place to stay if you're on a budget. Very friendly and quirky, and right near great restaurants and in a nice area. Choose one of the single sex rooms if possible as they are the best.
