We only planned to stay a few days in Singapore; we loved it so much we stayed for eight days. During our visit we stayed at Joyfor Backpackers and can’t recommend it enough (see their details below), we had such a great time and were well looked after – the staff are awesome!
Joyfor Backpackers is located within a 5 minute walk from Kallang train station, check out the map below to see where it is in relation to the station – it’s pretty easy to find.
It’s clean, has good wifi, basic breakfast of toast with a large variety of things to spread all over it, tea, coffee, water, all the essentials – it’s ideal for those looking to come to Singapore on a budget.
During our stay at Joyfor Backpackers we stayed in a dormitory room ($18 a night), all the rooms have air conditioning and lockers, you have a key card to get into the accommodation section and all rooms have locks. Reception is 24/7, rooms are very quiet, you could of course end up with loud roommates, don’t be afraid to ask to switch rooms if they’re keeping you awake.
Joyfor Backpackers is located next to the red light district, but we found it very safe and loved the night life, the main street is always very busy, well lit and there are tons of cheap food places to try. Once you jump onto a train you’re about a 10 minute ride to China Town or 15 minutes to central Singapore.
If you Google ‘Joyfor Backpackers’ you’ll find all their reviews on Agoda and Booking.com.
