Historic Joo Chiat
A-Star International Hostel is located in the heart of Joo Chiat conservation in Singapore.
Joo Chiat is an area in the east of Singapore known for its multicultural heritage, and derives its name from a number of roads in the area named after plantation owner and philanthropist Chew Joo Chiat. In the early 20th century, significant Peranakan and Eurasian populations moved into Joo Chiat alongside the Chinese, Malay and Indian communities.
Today, many of the shophouses in Joo Chiat’s has been restored and preserved to reflect its multi-ethnic influences and rich history. Within these conserved shophouses, you can find a wide selection of eateries alongside art galleries, design studios, upmarket retail outlets and boutique hotels.
Staying at our hostel means you will be able to experience first hand living in this unique multicultural and rich historical district in the eastern side Singapore.
