Nestled in the centre of Arab Street - the middle-eastern village in Singapore - Sleepy Sam's location is perhaps the main reason for its popularity. Listed as 'Singapore's highest rated bed & breakfast for backpackers', this hostel isn't exactly as dormant as its name purports to be.


Indulge in the sweet smelling essence from Arabia diffusing from perfume shops scattered around the area or sip on some hot spice tea. Expect all this and more whilst living in one of Singapore's most revered cultural districts. Known for its textile and rattan shops, Arab Street is also famous for its sumptuous and affordable middle-eastern cuisine.


Sleepy Sam's is a traditional shophouse converted into a hostel for tourist. Inside, you will find interesting cultural designs that help enhance its image.


There are a few things traveler's hate doing and one of them is laundry. Here, that will be the last thing on your mind. Leave your laundry behind and the kind staff will look after it. All-day breakfast, high-speed internet access and local calls are free.


Facilities: Laundry, kitchen, BBQ and lockers.
Price: S$28 onwards (Dorm)
