At the next time, I am planning to have minimum 1 (one) night stay at Singapore in order to get more closer to any attractive and interesting places in Singapore. Well, in order to obtain cheap accommodation, I started to search budgeted hotels or hostels in Singapore. Since the price per room is quite expensive compared to Indonesia or Malaysia, we must save money for many reasons.
Looking for the choice hotel or hostel for staying at low prices is principally easy. Many cheap hostels scattered in Singapore. Generally this hostel is dorm concept, meaning one (1) room contains many beds which all guests can be gathered in one room. For example, 14 bed mixed dorm means you will stay with maximum 14 people in one room, mixed between men and women although you still can choose hostels that separate men and women room. For women who want to take privacy you can order female dorm, this is a special room reserved for women.
If you plan to travel with family, let say a small child, certainly not advisable to stay in hostels. Commonly hostels in Singapore require minimum age of guests. Alternatively, if you still want to get budgeted hostels with your kids, try to look for a hostels that provide private room. Usually a double room can be booked for 2 ( two ) people at once. The rate is usually determined by per room and not per bed as in mixed dorm.Here are the search results from internet and direct communication via email to the owner of the hostels in Singapore :
This hostel has been operated since 2011 which means the condition of the building and its equipment would still new. Interestingly, the hostel room is designed with a model of capsule (pod) such as hotels in Japan. From last info, 2 (two) people can order 1 (one) double room for SGD 90.00 per night. It means that each person only paid SGD 45.00 per night. If you bring small child (minimum age 5 years), you can order 3 single pod or 1 double + 1 single pod. Price for 1 single pod is SGD 50.00 and SGD 90.00 for 1 double pod.
