It was a very uplifting experience staying in Betel Box. Nothing fancy here, except the sheer joy meeting new people and sharing your culture. The service was great. The people were extremely helpful especially when my friend had problems with looking a place to stay. I will definitely recommend this place to people and I look forward to staying there again.

And this is the best place for Kindness
Ms Tini is able to operate this place with a level of kindness not found in many other places.This hostel is more like a hotel.There are antique books and items placed well.Even there are bike rentals.The free internet is for 1/2 hour for each 24 hour.The dorms are excellent.Most of all the bathrooms are great for the price paid.The breakfast of bread spreads and fruits is a welcome relief.If you like more variety there are great shops downstairs.This is my second visit to this Homely hostel Also Ms Deepa is doing an excellent job in the assisting process.There is an access code to enter the hostel too.There are so many good facilities that only this hostel can provide.Whisky the cat is so friendly with me even though I have seen her at this time.Perhaps it is because I have cats in my house too.Anyway if you want a complete family themed holiday come to this place.There is also a path leading to a road on the East Coast beach.

Nice Hostel
This hostel ist really nice, friendly hotel. Located not in the centre, but with good connection. If you just toning time to the city and then back to sleep it's good. Don't book it if you want to go back to hostel more times durungvthe day (it takes ca. 30 min) to get to the city centre. The stuff was really nice and there is ablocket cat living there as well ;-)

Friendly & flexible
Staff are friendly and flexible. I did not stay here personally but dropped by to meet my guests. The place is cosy and my guests enjoyed their stay. Lots of food options around the area. However, it can get a little noisy at night as there are many pubs around.

Great for budget backpackers
If you are traveling on a budget then Singapore is expensive. By staying here you can save a lot on accomodation cost. We stayed in 8bed dorm. Place is nice, staff friendly, free toast and fruit for breakfast. WiFi is only available in communal area, which was fine. Some showers are cold.. we didn't realise this and thought all where cold and only found the warm ones on our last night. Could do with removing the shower from the toilet as we had 16 people on our floor with 1 toilet, but some people seemed to be selfish and use the toilet shower rather than the 2 separate shower cubicals.

One of the better backpackers
I have stayed in quite a few backpackers in Singapore over the years and this is one of the better ones I have stayed in. The location for this trip was great as I was shopping between there and the airport for certain items. The staff were great and facilities clean bed was ok location for public transport very good, sleeping in a dorm was ok you just have to remember the ear plugs !! It is just a shame some of the backpackers couldn't have washed there clothing a little more often but that is not the Hosteliers fault. The street the backpackers is located in is very picturesque and lots of night life if that is your thing. I will be back thank you.
