Singapore hostels are an eye opener

We dropped by a hostel for backpackers along Dunlop Street, just near the mecca for electronic items, Sim Lim Towers.
It was certainly an eye opener to learn how hostels for backpackers are being operated.
These hostels at Dunlop Street that we visited were the Innn Crowd and Fragrance Hostel which are located just near each other.
The rates are very affordable, it is indeed for visitors on the budget.
The rooms are dorm-style, with six double deck beds per room. The common showers and toilets are in cubicles.
Breakfast is free. Internet computers are free also.
Since it is a place to stay for those on a shoe string budget, aircondition is turned on from 5 p.m. to 11 a.m. the following day. It is expected that visitors go out and tour the city at daytime.
Hostels are distinct from what we know as pensionne houses in that hostels have that distinct personal touch.
The hosts take care of the personal concerns of ttheir visitors.
They also prepare some simple tours, give directions, offer lockers in case visitors want a secure place for their valuables.
At the Inn-Crowd, cost of the dorm fore ach person is S$18 or roughly equivalent to P550 per day.
