Hallo,

we, my 5 year old son and my wife stay in the New Park Hotel in Little India. It's a big Hotel with more than 500 rooms. Near by, there is a MRT Station. We've booked from 26th till 31th January 2006. Superior room costs 52 € per night.

You can try Hotel 81 in chinatown. Price range from SGD 80- SGD120 http://www.hotel81.com.sg/loc_d.shtml. Near chinatown, very accessible, near city. Try not to go for hotel 81 in geylang though. It's in the middle of the red light district in singapore. Hotel 81 in chinatown is relatively alright. If you're looking at hostel, can check out this http://www.bugisbackpackers.com/

Another option is the YMCA on Orchard Rd. A bit more expensive than the Bugis hostel, but clean, safe and good location.

Actually, most places in singapore are quite safe and clean. So no worries there. Singapore is fairly small so you don't have to stay in the city area itself because it will be more expensive. Public transports are friendly, convenient and cheap. There's MRTs, buses(ranging from $0.60 to $2. Adv to buy the EZ-Link card at the train stations for $15. Then just tap and go!) but taxis are expensive.

Check out http://www.betelbox.com/hostel_rates.htm. Katong has got a few fantastic places for hostels. Joo Chiat, Little India and Chinatown too. Steer out of Geylang though, cos it's the Red Light District, for hostels. However, Geylang is famous for good and cheap food too so you got to know which parts to visit.

just came back from singapore..

yeah.. the MRT system is good. it won't take very long time even if you live a bit further from the town itself.
maybe 30-40 mins. depending.. you have to see where is the location of your stay.

since you come in a group..find a hostel that fits in everyone(just the 5 of you)..mixed room if you don't mind your male fren.
betelbox would be good place to stay.

wish i have been to geylang.. but my mate wanted to go shopping malls.
i don't mind anything.i like variety of choices.

Try "A Travellers Rest-Stop", a budget accommodation located in a safe, quiet place in the heart of Chinatown. It's only 3 min walk from Outram Park MRT station (exchange station, so it's convenient), and 5 min walk from Chinatown station.

Dorm bed is SGD 18, single room SGD 35, standard double-bed room SGD 50-55. Website: http://www.atravellersreststop.com.sg/

hi all,

good to see good reviews abt hostels i searched in 2 hectic days. great if i can land up in one of these places..

have been to london recently and now to singapore on a short visit.

can some one suggest some sites where singapore maps and stff about singapore can be downloaded.

some one can help me out with choosing a hostel. i am gonna stay for 2 weeks so i guess i want to be as close to singapore culture as i can.. so what place can one suggest for me keeping in mind that i shall have to rush to office at 9 at harbourfront MRT and probably return by 5 in the evening.. i guess sentosa is pretty good funny place but no hostels.. also looking for good rates and all facilities around..

some one help me out yaar.... and i guess i like this blogs too much..
