I found this budget hostel at last minute for a my flight layover and it was well worth spending. 30mins from the airport by MRT or 40 mins by bus (SGD 2.4). The staff was very helpful and gentle explaining all info I need. He recommended me to visit the Joo Chiat area nearby

City hostels are always tricky but Betel Box attracts a nice mix of backpacker. Fairly clean, nice common area and with the excellent public transport in Singapore it doesn’t feel like you’re out of the action. Would stay again.

Hi! Our WIFI connection is focused in the spacious Common Room where everybody gets together to mingle. We prefer to have our dorms WIFI-free so that everybody can get a good rest/sleep at night. If you really need WIFI connection in your dorm, you may opt for our 6-Bed Mixed Dorm. It is the only dorm that has WIFI connection as of now. Our WIFI connection is usually good if not too many people are downloading or streaming things on their personal devices simultaneously. :) -Tini
