Hostel – There are many accommodations
that are categorised under hostel or budget hotels
but this does not mean services and facilities are
compromised. Most accommodations are quite clean,
neat and friendly and have all the basic facilities.
And some do cater to special needs like young children,
guest with disabilities and smoke free rooms. Most
hostels in Singapore are independently owned and operated.
Some are serious party places while others are quiet
hideaways for total rest and relaxation. Geylang and
Bencoolen Street are the main areas where budget accommodation
is located. Do note that Geylang is a red light district
