Betel Box

Hostel in Eastern Singapore

Although somewhat cramped, Betel Box has its perks – among them, walking access to Joo Chiat's (Katong's) plethora of top local eating options and reasonably easy access to East Coast Park. The air-conditioned communal area features cheap beer, TV, video games, computers and a pool table, as well as a book-exchange and heaps of travel guides.

The hostel also hosts some fantastic cultural and eating tours.
