Central 65 Hostel (formerly known as b88 Hostel) situated at the central Heritage district of Singapore since 2012. It is now rebranded and renovated to provide you the highest comfort of living, at a budgeted pricing. Every effort is put in to ensure that your stay will be a memorable one.

The 24-hour reception and cafe, coupled with a spacious luggage room for easy storage of your bulky luggage, service and eatery. From a “Pillow Menu” where you can choose your pillow of choice (goose down, buck wheat or even the aromatic or memory pillows at no extra cost!) to a in-house Gym and a luxurious rooftop Jacuzzi, we offer you all the five star trappings at a very affordable and communal price.

We provide 134 beds in mixed dormitory with dedicated dorm for female travellers. Travellers will enjoy free breakfast, WIFI, coffee/tea throughout the day. We aim to provide our visitors quality sleep with our quality bedding. Each capsule-styled bed comes with an anti-bedbug mattress with a padded mattress protector, a high thread count linen and comforter. Each bed is equipped with privacy blinds to give you your own personal space while sharing a room with others. There are two lockers to each bed; an internal bed locker which is not only convenient but allows you to keep your devices close to you at all times, and a bigger storage locker that comes with a self-programmed digital lock for maximum security.

Prices are per person per night.
