Singapore hostels

We stayed at 2 different hostels during the recent trip.

The first one was Betel Box. This hostel is far from the MRT. Minus point there. The nearest station is Paya Lebar, and from there we had to walk almost 15 minutes to reach the hostel. 15 minutes sounds like an easy walk ey? Try walking while carrying a heavy backpack or lugging your big suitcase, you'll be cursing all the way until you're at the hostel door. It wasn't our first choice but since other hostels weren't available to host our big group that night, we had to settle with it. 

But this hostel is quite near to Geylang Serai food centre. Think all the good food as a compensation for your walk. ;p Then to save you from the long walk back to Paya Lebar MRT, you can take Bus No 33 from the bus stop nearby the hostel and it can take you to Bugis MRT.

Sorry I forgot to take the room's picture. heh...

The next day, we checked out and moved to Ruck Sack Inn because everyone wanted to stay near the MRT supaya senang nak pergi shopping ke mana-mana... heheheh. It's GSS remember???

This hostel is located very near to Clarke Quay MRT. And with Central shopping centre, restaurants, G-max reverse bungy, river cruises just a couple of minutes away, the location is simply awesome.

the hostel is at the 3rd floor, the one with the 'NOW OPEN' banner

I've stayed at 3 different hostels in Singapore and so far, I love Ruck Sack the most. Will definitely come here again for my future trips.
