Singapore’s Matchbox The Concept Hostel

Hi backpackers,

Recently, there has been a new development in the backpackers circle in Singapore. An emerging class of backpackers (called flashpackers) is requesting slightly more upmarket accommodation. With its pod-style bed cabins and designer touches throughout the premise, Matchbox The Concept Hostel is one of the new Boutique Hostel players.

Matchbox derives its name from the design of the rooms, where the special Pod Beds are neatly stacked like matchboxes. One of the hostel’s exclusive features is its first-in-the-world-to-be-implemented couple bunk beds, which can sleep two together. Guests have a choice of three types of rooms: a two bed mixed dorm, a 12 bed ladies’ dorm and an 18 bed mixed dorm.
