Singapore’s Luxury Hostel Is An Idea We Can Get Behind

Cheap. Classy. And so very clever.

If, like us, you find yourself wanting a step up from a regular hostel but you can’t afford a five-star hotel all the time when you travel, may we present Singapore’s finest invention yet: the luxury hostel.

Think less shots, and more cocktails during happy hour – that’s the vibe the Adler Luxury Hostel in central Singapore is going for. Dubbed the ideal style of accommodation for a new breed of young travellers called “flashpackers”, this new type of hostel caters to people who want the creature comforts of a hotel but don’t mind sharing. After all, travelling as a young person is all about the people you meet and the experiences you have with them. For those looking for a more upscale, yet still community-driven experience, hostels like the Adler are the perfect fit.

Amenities at the Adler include homemade gourmet breakfasts, fast Wi-Fi, a laundry attendant, hotel-quality toiletries (including a towel and complimentary earplugs), 24-hour room service options, passes to nightclubs, a turn-down service and even a personalised travel itinerary.

Like a typical hostel, there are a number of room options to cater to your budget and prices in a curtained bunk bed (which the hotel calls ‘cabins’) start at around $46AUD per night. Unlike a typical hostel though, it’s fancy as.

Bookings are available here.
