About Betel Box Backpackers Hostel

Betel Box Backpackers Hostel is a cosy airconditioned hostel with traditional Asian furnishings in a restored 1920s Shophouse. Our accommodation is in comfortable air-conditioned dormitory rooms with hot and cold showers. We also have a large communal area with guest kitchen, dining area, lounge area, Internet terminals and hundreds of books and magazines.

There is no curfew at the hostel; we have an electronic keypad lock at the front door, which means you can come and go as you wish, any time of the day. Staff are on hand to assist 24 hours a day and our communal areas are always open. Security cameras monitors all access points and lockers, while, fire systems are directly connected to the central fire service.

We are located on Joo Chiat Road, which is at the heart of Singapore's famous Katong and Geylang Serai district. Joo Chiat is home to the Peranakans of Singapore. Here you will find signature Straits Chinese eateries and giftshops and also the Eurasian Museum. Furthermore, Joo Chiat is Singapore's largest architecture conservation district with more than 900 individual buildings protected by law; Betel Box is located in a prime example of a conserved 1920s shophouse.

Betel Box Backpackers hostel is 13 km from Changi International Airport and 7 km to City Hall (centre of the city). Well connected buses and trains provide easy transport to all the sights and attractions of Singapore. The hostel is walking distance to the most popular park in Singapore; the East Coast beach where you can swim, BBQ, bike and rollerblade.

One of Singapore's best attractions is the wide variety of food on offer and the Joo Chiat district is the best area to sample the best of Singaporean foods. The lively area around the hostel has many famous restaurants, food stalls and kopi tiams (local coffee shops).

Every week we organise activites, including Tony's Famous Foodwalk in the district around the hostel. On this walk you will get a chance to sample some of the best food Singapore has to offer and it is a great way to meet fellow travellers! Other free tours include Pubcrawl by Singapore River, Nature Walk and City by the Water Cycling Tour.
