Luxury for Less in Singapore- The Adler Hostel

I am a huge fan of luxury hostels. Whoever came up with the idea is a business genius. One shinning example is the Adler Hostel located in Chinatown of Singapore. Upon entering the glass doors, you’ll notice beautiful, modern decor and a smiling concierge. Enjoy some tea while lounging on one of their many couches and chairs with the other guests or head up to your room for some privacy.

We had a king bed to share. You climb up a beautiful wood ladder to your personal lair. With thick gold curtains that line your cabin you can relax into your own oasis. If you decide to sleep in, the curtains are there to prolong the darkness. There is plenty of room for your necessities and an outlet to keep your extra necessary items charged. Did I mention the beds are extremely comfy and the pillows fluffy? The bathrooms are very clean and warm water flows easily, solidifying the luxurious experience.

I couldn’t get a hold of my friend during my final layover, and decided to wait until landing to make another move. Luckily, Callie from The Adler saved my night. I was having trouble finding a place and the wifi was terrible at the airport. She emailed me rapidly and with kindness even though I was double-emailing her. Okay, at that point I was triple-emailing her. Did I also mention it was 1 a.m.? She got it all sorted for me with a smile. Overall, we had a beautiful experience and will most definitely be staying again.

Do you love luxury hostels? Where was your favorite one?

Should you travel to Singapore?

Should you travel to Singapore?



1) It’s the cleanest country I’ve been to

2) It’s impossibly safe

3) It’s not nearly as strict as the Internet likes to portray- just don’t be a dick.

4) The food is amazing- deserts and spicy soup galore!

5) Shop until you drop … I honestly can’t find a precise number but picture malls upon malls 3 stories+ with hundreds of shops. Local goods, luxury stores, and the average Victoria’s Secret/ forever 21, etc.

6) It’s not as expensive as you might think. Yes alcohol is expensive. Avoid that and you’re in the clear. Look for Airbnb for accommodations and eat at the hawker stands.

7) Easy transportation- the metro is beautiful.

In a nutshell, Singapore is the kitties titties. I landed around midnight, snagged a cab with the most informative, kind cabbie. He didn’t even charge me for the late night fee.

Thank de law, Titty (my best) met me at our badass, and I mean BADASS king size bed for 40 a night… Complete luxurious dorm! My pictures truly don’t do it justice. We spent a few hours checking out China town and catching up… Falling asleep at 6 am probably wasn’t the best but thanks to the gorgeous curtains around our bed slept till 11. The country is absolutely beautiful! So clean, so much color oh and the people are so friendly. Titty and I were lamely trying to flag a cab in the bus lane. After five/ten mins of straight denial the sweetest older guy came and explained that there was a queue across the street where the cabs stop hehe #tourist

Titty and her Kopi
 Our first home Adler Hostel was located in Chinatown. An extremely colorful part of town, we walked around in awe, ate kaya toast, and drank Singaporean coffee (Kopi). Okay, I had tea because I was le craving the refreshing taste of iced tea.

My favorite part of Chinatown was visiting the temples. They were very patient with me and my 150 questions- hey! I didn’t want to disrespect anyone. I was able to go in for some prayer and peace: “Release me from myself” is my personal prayer. You know the saying, “You’re far too smart to be the only thing standing in your way.” That’s human nature for you. We focus our energies on nourishing the ego without nourishing our skills, souls, or selves. I want to rid myself of the defensiveness, anxiety, and depression, all of which come from within. I’ve been on this journey for a few years and it does have its ups and downs like anything in life. Places of peaceful worship always soothe my soul and humble me. Those reading this that know me probably aren’t surprised. I tend to concern myself way too much on the big things in life and what is after life and what is the aim of life what’s right and wrong etc etc etc. neurotic ? Maybe. But it’s something I need. We all want peace and Ive been more at peace the past year than at any point in my life.

But anyways
Singapore! Ugh it is impeccably clean. The greenery is outstanding’ so many parks and trees and shrubbery. The rain keeps the island extremely lush, not to mention the weather has been near perfect, us Florida gals weren’t even close to hot.

Mee soto soup & teh

We really just walked around all day embracing the gorgeous country. Of course we went by the Merlion. I didn’t understand that it was a MERlion like mermaid hehe. But I’m so ecstatic it was!

Very creative.

We relocated to our new place, an equally amazing Airbnb. Snagged a few moments rest and headed to the Marina bay to catch the light show! It was definitely worth rushing through the metro.

Super classy Airbnb!

The next day, we grabbed some more delish Mee Soto for breakfast and did some shopping…. More shopping than I’ve done in my life!

Finally, we got to the most beautiful of all-

Ended the night here-

So if you can get to Singapore- do it! You won’t regret it.

a proper ice-cream sandwich

Off to Bali tomorrow! 😘
