What we say: 3.5 stars

If you prefer to start the day with a cappuccino rather than instant coffee, this is the guesthouse for you. Claiming to be Singapore's first "luxury hostel", Sleepy Sam's occupies a strip of beautifully restored shophouses smack in front of the Sultan Mosque. While the ambience is enchanting and the beds are comfy, Sleepy Sam's has outgrown its britches and has too many bunks and not enough bathrooms for the mixed dorm — at least the common areas are cosy. We wanted to love Sleepy Sam's, but some changes need to be made if they plan to keep charging these prices. Rates include internet and breakfast anytime you want it. Be warned the private rooms are simply partitioned off from the main dorm area, with a large gap between the top of your door and ceiling, meaning it's just as noisy as being in a dorm. And the single room is as big as the mattress plus space for your bag, and no more.
