It’s a really convenient place and shophouse is Singapore signature, I’ve also bought a souvenir at Gardens by the Bay of a wooden framed bamboo Shophouse artwork as a great memory for the trip. Room has Great shower I give to. Air conditioning fast and easy. Kitchen tools handy to cut local fruit or even cook. Close to MRT station, ATM, restaurants ...you name it. Landlord is very considerate and Nice! This room cant go wrong. That’s all I need to tell.

The place is excellent. I truly enjoyed my time in this place. I often pick homes with real character to stay at when in Singapore, this is no exception. The design is quite unique and interesting. Very comfortable and quiet. I'll be back.

If you're a fan of unique, well-thought out space, this is a great choice for you. Room is spacious and clean with working WiFi and hot shower. Beds/pillows were comfy with clean linens. Common areas like the open kitchen and seating area were also homey and well-designed. Location is also close to a lot of good seafood and grilled restos. Only drawback IF it matters to you is it's closeness to the red light district. Geylang is also not the cleanest neighborhood so it may not be ideal for traveling with kids. In our case, we could look past that because it was near enough a train station, and we were very much interested in the design of the shophouses. The street itself where it's located felt safe and quiet despite being within Geylang.

Fang and Shuying were great hosts. My family and I had a great stay there. Everything was as described. Near bustling streets of Geylang where is the most excited downtown area in Singapore, but here is very quiet. Many hawkers(small restaurants) are around here. If you book their Airbnb, they will send you the original food guide book pdf. If you move to Marina Bay include Marlion, around 15min and 10-15SGD by Uber.

I love exploring the planet, learning different cultures and discovering new places. I gave up my finance career in 2015 to pursue a lifelong dream: to travel the world full time. To support myself, I rent out my apartment on Airbnb. It's been a great experience, from the countless varieties of street food and plentiful late night philosophical discussions with other travelers.

I enjoy meeting people from different parts of the world and I look forward to connecting with you as a host or traveler. I will do my best to make stay as comfortable as possible or being a good guest, depending on my role.
