The location of project boat quay is very appropriate as we can’t miss to see the river view from our hostel balcony/terrace.

Reaching to hostel is also quite easy, either take a cab from airport to Boat Quay or MRT. It is just 3 minutes’ walk to Raffles Place MRT station and 5 minutes’ walk for Clarke Quay station. We reached our hostel at 11.30 pm on Friday night and oh what a scene it’s party going at every corner of the street. From here you can easily explore Singapore top attractions and other places.

Room : Private room with triple occupancy

The check-in process was very smooth at reception. Along with the room key card they also provided us a cellphone.

Than the staff took us to our room. The room which we got was a private room with triple occupancy. Room was very clean and compact. It was a double story bed. Nice! The bathrooms are not attached with the room. They were present on the same floor. Males and Females have separate bathrooms. But hat’s off to the services because they were clean throughout the day which really impressed us.

Travelpeppy review rating: 5/5

Staying at Project boat quay was a wonderful experience altogether. It was super hygienic, neat and clean. The location is simply amazing in the heart of Singapore. And most important the staff is friendly. If we will get a chance we will definitely try to stay in their other properties too.

    The hostel has an ideal location. Just to experience that I may stay there.
    I will check this out in my next visit there.

    Wow that looks like a really sweet deal! They provide you with a phone with mobile data! Now that is what i call great service that even hotels don’t have. Actually, design/boutique hostels are my favourite accommodation as they can always surprise you with great facilities on amazing prices. And a hostel with a river view is just perfect!

  3. Parnashree Devi

    It looks like a perfect place to stay. Excellent location and facilities are the most selling point of this hostel. I would love try in my next trip.

  4. Marlene Marques

    Sounds you had a great first time hostel experience. It sounds like a great place and very well located. The room looks a bit small but being in that area, who wants to sleep anyway 😉 Thanks for the staying tip in Singapore.

  5. Wanderlust vegans

    Wow this place is perfect. I’m impressed by everything included such as the mobile phone with 4g data. That would be really useful for exploring the city. I’ve heard accommodation can be expensive in Singapore so a hostel like this is the way to go and it’s conveniently located.

  6. Venkat Ganesh

    That is indeed one great hostel. And the location makes it a winner.

    The cellphone is a nice touch. I mean if you go to any place on a short trip you really wouldn’t want to spend money on getting a local SIM card but having one definitely makes you life a lot easier. So giving guests a phone is a great example of how a hostel can stand apart from the rest

    I really like the unique concept of the hostel. I have never stayed in a boutique hostel before and that sounds very intriguing. I’d like to give it a try.

  8. Ami

    It does not look like a hostel at all. And the location is amazing indeed. Glad you discovered this place. Will be sharing it around. Makes Singapore a lot of more affordable.

  9. Samarpita Sharma

    Since I have family in Singapore, never could get a chance to stay at any hotel. More the reason why reading about one of the facilities was quite a welcoming change. The place seems beautiful and comfortable.

  10. Luca

    I’d say it’s a very neat hostel, and the fact that they give you a mobile while there it’s absolutely great! Too bad I noticed that the older/less young I am, the more I want a private bathroom when booking a room somewhere, especially when I travel in a couple. But in case I’ll do a solo trip again, I could consider that option again.

  11. Joe

    Looks great! The hostel itself seems very spacious and clean, with excellent facilities, and its location and pleasant surrounding areas make it sound like the perfect place to stay. The library looks more like a computer room…but I guess that’s what many people think of as libraries these days.

    Amazing Hostel, not less than a hotel!.. They should change the name from hostel to hotel.. 🙂
