Best favorite hostel”

I have stayed in many hostels in SG but this hostel will be one of the best hostel to stay. I was sincerely shocked and taken away on the cleanliness of the hostel and the bathrooms!!! The staffs are superb character and very helpful. I will and also have recommanded many of my circles to make this hostel as a choice. Even the iron box is well kept because many hostel spends thousands for operations but don't take care of daily usage items. 10/10👍👍👍

great place, staff, but small room”

Betel Box is a great place to stay, I like it because the female room is clean but I think it's too small. If the room is fully occupied, it's difficult to place your bags. Other than that the place is awesome. Clean toilets, clean room, super nice and informative staff (they'll give you information and tips about travelling in singapore and very detail and honest about it), and my favorite place is the common room. It's homy, comfortable and you can actually mingle with everyone else staying here. Thankyou so much betel box, will definitely be back here. Recommended for solo travellers.

Very convenient, had everything I needed.”

I went to Singapore to go roller skating up and down the park for a couple of days. The price I had was very good considering that breakfast is free and there are free drinks available 24h/day. I gather that this is pretty normal across S'pore and I was very happy with the facilities. Perfect location for me, about 4-5 junctions from ECP. See you next time!
