Ruby,
I undertook some research before visiting Singapore last year. I decided on Sleepy Sam's B & B in Bussorah Street. They have their own website. I thought it was an establishment made up of private rooms only which was, at my age, was what I wanted. Turned out to be predominately hostel accom. Not that I have an issue with that only my days of staying in hostels (Europe and North America) are well behind me. I booked months in advance through the internet and I'm glad I did. Although June is usually low season throughout Asia not so at Sleepy Sam's. I observed travellers turned away each day I was there so I assumed they have a high reputation. The day I walked in my advance booking was on record and honoured. I certainly enjoyed my stay there. Staff were helpful at all times. Bussorah Street is in the Arab district and closed to traffic at both ends. Rail system a few minutes walk away. I'm not sure if your allowed to cite website addresses but just do a search and you'll see it. Hope this assists. Safe travels.

I'm not sure how true this is for Singapore, since June is Great Singapore Sale month. An Egyptian friend of mine has even told me that tourism campaigns marketing the sale hit Cairo.

I have never stayed in a hostel locally and probably never will as most ban locals, but here's wishing Ruby a warm welcome in advance

I stayed in the Inn Crowd on Dunlop Street and thought it was really good. they organise activities/nights out in the evenings and there is a little bar on site. There are storage lockers and internet on site, and double rooms available as well as dorms. It's close to Bugis MRT station if i rememer rightly.

I stayed at the Hangout at Mount Emily. It was quite nice. It was more like a hotel than a hostel though. We had a private room which was really nice. The only down side was it didn't have a kitchen. There was a restaurant but it was too expensive for us since we were expecting a hostel. It was pretty funky tho and in a fairly nice area. There was a metro station not too far away, although for the destinations we wanted to visit we had to walk for about 10 minutes to reach the other line. There was a pretty park just over the road and a fantastic view of the city from the roof terrace.

The Inn Crowd won as their website is ace, it all looks very well run AND they have Marmite....enough said!!

Also if everyone is as welcoming as Sapphyre then I can't wait to get there!

I was out with some friends from overseas who were here for work and we spent the night barhopping across Singapore. Was just commenting that they're really lucky that the weather's been great this past week they're here - warm but not unbearable, no rain and plenty of breeze. It usually rains daily up till March. Hope it continues for you! :)

Ferrer Park was a good experience, not so crowded, and clean.... and the owner used to give me free water whenever i used to go out in the morning ...
