This hostel is just amazing! I really like everything about it - very clean, close to MRT and Chinatown. There is enough space and privacy. Staff is very friendly, especially receptionist Zurah! The hostel also has a very nice terrace. I will definitely come back there again!

I really love this hostel because it's really convenient and close to outram park MRT so you can go everywhere easily. It's very cool as its name.

If you're going to stay in a hostel in Singapore, I think one with sleeping pods is the way to go. I chose COO on this trip because I was arriving a bit late and their reception is 24-hours. The receptionist was quite upbeat and friendly, too. The sleeping pod was good. I like that the locker is in the...

I stayed at Coo for just 3 nights, but it was my first experience at a hostel and what an amazing experience it was! I stayed with 3 other people in my room, and it was so fresh and cozy, I felt like I was underpaying. The hostel is very close to Chinatown and very central. I never got a...

Staying in Tiong Bahru

Neighbourhood Profile
Tiong Bahru
Home to both local families and transient expats, Tiong Bahru is a fascinating mix of tradition and youthful creativity. Its status as a conservation area ensures that this little hub has charm and heritage on display at every corner, while the 1930s art deco architecture provides a glimpse of days gone by. Stock up on fresh tropical fruits at the wet market, browse high quality literature and children’s books, shop for interesting gifts and local fashion, or munch on bargain-priced hawker food as the aroma of frying noodles and fresh-brewed coffee wafts through the air. Cap your day with a massage and a latte, a glass of wine, or a pain au chocolat from one of the many busy bakeries. An afternoon in this vibrant and beautiful neighbourhood is not to be missed.
