We had an excellent stay at The Bus Collective. All the staff members were friendly, professional and accomodating. The ambience and setup are ideal for family outing, providing a perfect setting for bonding experience. Bonus points are definitely having your own private patio with bbq pit, big umbrella shade and a thoughtful, convenient placed sink all attached to your bus unit on the outside. Everything else inside the room is clean and efficient. There are also few well strategized private accesses to various locations outside the premise along the fence enclosure. Its a truly unique experience. Thank you Bus Collective for the pleasant stay; and the great staffs who are always ready to help!

We needed a hotel to spend 17 hours in Singapore. We landed and started calling hotels in the city. Every hotel has its own check in rules and most didn’t have any vacancy. Bus collective had vacancy and were happy to accommodate our odd request. Eddie @ The Bus Collective was very friendly. The unique experience of living in a bus excited us. The bus is surprisingly spacious with four of us (two adults and two kids) easily fitting in with plenty of space for our luggage. The place and the accomodation is very clean and well kept. The staff is very friendly. I would highly recommend anyone visiting Singapore to experience this unique accommodation.

Changi Village is an area that we have yet to bring our kids to, and The Bus Collection staycation just made the journey to the east extra special. What with watching the sunrise at the patio from the first minute, plane spotting and playing games of guess the airline, sleeping in a bus (!) in the middle of a very rainy year end season, our kids had enjoyed themselves tremendously in this unique lodging. As a family, we took walks along Changi beach, ventures to Pulau Ubin by bumboat, put together a last minute bbq, thanks to the one-stop shops at Changi Village, alongside lessons in nature spying hornbills, monitor lizards and cute caterpillars roaming about in nature. The hawker centre right next to it with gated access meant that we had yummy food options all day long. The team was ever friendly and ready to assist for any queries we had during our stay, and kudos to them for managing a very full booking schedule in December with lots of smiles and positivity. Highly recommended for family time to unplug from the hustle and bustle of crowded weekends at busy shopping malls.

I stayed for one night with my family. I booked the room with 4 beds. The room and shower were quite clean and the ant situation that I read online was better that I thought as I did not see too many ants. I appreciate that the bbq pit set up was included so I could have a bbq dinner. And the Changi hawker centre is 5 min walk away which is a plus, we could buy our breakfast quite quickly. We had a door lock situation but the hotel staff was very quick to come to our aid. Which is very commendable. Great stay for one night staycation.

Unique experience and excellent service! Rooms layout was good despite it being in a used bus, everything was clean and well thought out. Patio and bbq was the highlight although we had to buy mosquito repellent, overall great experience and would definitely be back 👍🏻

We receive warmth welcome throughout our "bus-cation" from the staff (especially Ashleigh). It was a unique experience for family, and we are looking forward to visit again with new fun and activities. Thank you.

For me it's worth it cus of the unique place which is a bus n bbq pit and outdoor seating area (if you prefer fresh air u can open the door and use a stopper ).Great for people who like something different. It's just beside Changi village and there's a shop with bbq supplies and bbq food nearby Changi village.at night there's free entertainment music you can hear at at changi village(music from Shakira which makes me dance 🎶 🎉)there are planes flying above quite frequently but I barely hear the sound as I'm not a light sleeper. The cons is the safety part at the bed area ..I can fall down quite easily . at the bbq Area at night the light is so dim..I can't see clearly and may trip and fall when doing bbq.. hope the lights outside can be turn on more brighter to bbq outside at night. The staff are also helpful and friendly. My 3 kids autistic kids enjoyed their stay there and kept on asking to go back to the bus next time
