The location is very strategic. It's near to Bugis MRT station, Bugis Junction, just go on foot. A recommended hostel for backpacker with the cheap price and good facilities. Available iron and hairdryer, free to use and very smooth wifi. I'll be back to stay in this hostel.

Our stay at Shophouse was great! The hostel is very close with cafes and restaurants that provides halal foods. There's also a special discount for guest who want to grab some bites in Shophouse cafe downstairs just by showing our room's key to the waiters. The hospitality is great for a hostel, the receptionist itself is open until 8 p.m. They provide luggages room for people who came early before check in time so we can strolling around Singapore without bringing the luggages and come back to the hostel for check in. Amazingly, they also provide it for after check out until 9 p.m. I think they're understand the matter of taking good photos and walking around Singapore without bringing so much loads on you shoulders. If I got another chance to visit Singapore, I'd definitely choose this place again. And also, thank you for showing us this hostel!

The staff aren't friendly. It's not clean. The breakfast starts at 08:30. There's only one receptionist at a time so if she goes God knows where you'll have to wait until she comes back because the telephone that's on the hostel card isn't working. And when she's back she won't apologize for making you wait because the place is cheap and that's the kind of service you'll get. If you aren't extremely broke you can find many better options to stay at just with a couple more bucks. Seriously.

Cleanliness needs to be improved. Bed makes a lot of noise. Bathroom/shower needs an upgrade. Location was good within walking distance to Bugis MRT. Staff was nice and friendly. Breakfast was bread, cereal, coffee and tea.
Too noisy upstairs.. we think that our room has something.. The management should probably have the room that we booked blessed.
There are lots of bed bugs. My hand getting inflamed and infected. I suffered for chilling fever and allergic after that. A dirty hotel i won't go back anymore.

It’s still great to stay in Shophouse. But I like the old Shophouse when we can hanging out in rooftop. The rooftop now already become a cafe or something. So, it’s kinda sad for me. I missed the old Shophouse rooftop.

It was my second time staying in Shophouse. They need to pay more attention to some things : when we had breakfast we often ran out of spoon, please provide white sugar, will be better if they provide water dispenser, so the guests could get free water, the cleanliness of the bathroom/toilet need to be improved. The bed I stayed, there was blood stain. The location is really great, near Sultan Mosque, many food seller (restaurant/cafe) nearby, not far from bus shelter, walking distance too to bugis MRT (only if you like walking).
