The Quarters Hostel Singapore Review
It is our first time to check-in the Quarters hostel in Singapore during our trip to Singapore last November 28 – December 2, 2016, and I will give my personal review as a traveler who stayed in this hostel for 5 days.
The review is for the 2 hostels based on what I experienced at The Port Hostel and by the Quarter Hostels. The Quarters Hostel is located at the colorful Circular Road and The Port hostel is located along the Singapore River which the view is facing the Marina Bay. These hostels are perfect for traveler backpackers, solo travelers, couple travelers or for the family who love to travel.
Quarters Hostel Singapore is located at the circular road. They allow late check-in but you need to inform them ahead. The Quarters Hostel is a perfect place for those who love bars and nightlife after your busy day of visiting the tourist destination in Singapore because the circular road street is the place where people and bars are alive during nights after worked hours.
If you are looking for affordable foods for your budget then circular road street is the place to be.
Regarding the accommodations, services and staff attitude of this Quarters Hostel and The Port are very accommodating and happy to help or served their customers who need help. The Hostels has free breakfast only but it is a self-service and you should wash your own plates, which is a very good idea. You cook your own food.
They have clean rooms, CR and Lounge area. For rooms, they have En-Suite Dorm Room, Quad Room, and Twin Room.
The rate per night for En-Suite Dorm Room is $33.
The rate per night for Quad Room is $164 for a family room with 3 to 4 in groups.
The rate per night for Twin Room is $52 good for 2 with a double deck.
With hot showers 24 hours, free breakfast, bathroom, air condition, locker and bed light, key card access and free Wi-Fi access 24/7. The hostel also allows the customers to use the Mac desktops all in a nice cosy environment. Take note, bring your own towel because they don’t have free towel and the bathrooms are shared but the male and female bathrooms are separated and it is clean.
