SINGAPORE: a beary good hostel

2011 Holy Week SEA Trip
Malaysia - Singapore - Thailand

After a luxurious stay at Marina Bay Sands on our first night, we chose to stay in this small charming backpacker's hostel on our second and last night.

TripAdvisor’s Ranked No. 6 out of 82 Special lodging in Singapore.  Check Reviews here

66A and 66B Pagoda Street, Singapore 059225

Unlike other Asian countries, I find it hard to look for a hostel with Ensuite rooms here in Singapore.  Budget hotels with nice locations were fully booked already and quite expensive, it costs SGD50 and up per head.

So we have no other option but to book for a room with shared bathroom.  And since there is no more room available at A beary NICE hostel,  we were referred to their sister hostel, which is a beary GOOD hostel.

SINGAPORE: Orchid Suite - An overnight stay at the Sands

2011 Holy Week SEA Trip

Surround yourself in simple elegance.
Named after Singapore's national flower, the Orchid Suite exemplifies tropical hospitality.

The room offered to us was just a deluxe room but when i received the voucher in KL, we were surprised that our rooms are upgraded to a Suite whoaaa!  Why?  I have no idea... What matter is we were staying in an Orchid Suite without any additional fees!  Wohooo!!! another for this trip.

SINGAPORE: Marina Bay Sands

2011 Holy Week SEA Trip

The Most Spectacular Hotel in Singapore

10 Bayfront Avenue, Singapore
018956 +65 6688 8888

This is the most exciting part of our Holy Week vacation, an overnight stay at the most spectacular hotel in Singapore. The most expensive hotel I ever stayed and paid haha… This is not actually part of the plan.  As a budget traveler we wanted to stay in a hostel since most of the time we’re out.  We are not rich and cannot afford to stay in this luxurious hotel.

Until I checked our bulletin board in the office and caught my eyes on this special offer for employees.  A 30% discount for an overnight stay at MBS and can pay through salary deduction, offers last until June 30, 2011 only.  Whoa! I know this is still costly but this is not bad.  Who never dreamed of staying here even for just one night?  So we grabbed this great opportunity, all for us to experience this chance once in our lifetime.
