Betel Box almost gives you a “home-stay” experience in Singapore. With so many local intricacies, this hostel provide you with the best of both worlds; old world charm in a new generation setting. The shophouse-style accommodation is tastefully furnished with antique fittings, an extensive library and an assortment of games.


Located in the heart of Singapore’s most cultural neighbourhood, this hostel is probably the best place for a dose of local heritage. One thing you’ll never run out off at this unique place is food, especially breakfast delights (complimentary at Betel Box). Relish in food of all sorts and spice!


This hostel is probably one of the cheaper places to stay in and tries hard to maintain its ethnicity and character. If there is one thing lacking in modern Singapore, is its diverse and rich heritage. Living at Betel Box Backpackers Hostel will help visitors get a feel of how it was in the early sixties.


Unique is what I’d describe the hostel to be. It isn’t your typical backpackers instead it incorporates local culture into your travel experience.


Facilities: Kitchen, free internet access, library & games. Breakfast included.
