Just a few notes from hostelling on a recent trip to Singapore.
City Backpackers Hostel indicates on their website they will accept travelers after midnight. We made reservations online and paid the reservation fee and then emailed them as requested to let them know we would arrive after midnight. They then emailed us back saying sorry they close at 11pm and we were hung out to dry. I don’t recommend this hostel.
Betel Box is a good choice but because they are well recommended by travel guides and have good online placement in search engines you need to reserve well ahead, probably a week+.
A good alternative choice are the Fernloft Hostels (there are three located throughout Singapore) – we stayed at the 301 River Valley location which is about a 20-25 minute walk to Chinatown and about 15 minutes walk to the big shopping areas along nearby Orchard Street. The bus stop is located right across the street and its merely minutes to the main part of town. Their reservation desk is open 24/7, very friendly and helpful staff, 1 or 2 working Internet consoles and a variety of rooms ranging from private, to 4 beds (bunk style) to larger rooms.
