I had so much fun at Matchbox! the staff were lovely, it was so tidy and I made some fantastic friends there!
The beds are comfortable and private and the communal area is lovely!
Easy to get around singapore with MRT close by!

Room Tip: Go for the big mixed dorm you still have great privacy in your bed!

Matchbox is a very traveller friendly flashpacker hostel. The atmosphere is warm and friendly. The beds are comfortable to sleep in. The staffs are nice and helpful. And the toilet (the most important thing) is very clean.

Want to say a few words to your friend sleeping in the pod beside you before you sleep? Simply unlock the creatively designed peep holes that we offer between our pods. However, if you are too lazy to entertain your chatty friend, you may wish to lock up your side of the peep hole so that he/she won't disturb you (Kidding! We hope you won't do that to your friend! Haha!). For added privacy, Matchbox also offers satin curtains for each of our pods as we believe in providing you with a good night's sleep. So what are you waiting for?
