After landing in Singapore from a 18 hour delay flight from the U.S and being so exhausted I decided to give myself a treat and stay in the Marina Sand Hotel . After spending 400 dollars for a night (not worth it ) I then decided to look for cheap accommodation. As I was walking by the river, a 10 minutes walk from the new Casino and desperately looking for local food I was surprise to see a hostel in the middle of the financial district of Singapore. It was kind of awkward . I drank a beer and met some backpacker , check the rooms and then decided to give it a go . For 22 dollars a night it seem like a good idea. I had a blast in POW ....great atmosphere , nice staff, clean rooms, great toilets!! no curfew as they have electronic doors :) If you are looking to have fun and enjoy your stay in Singapore ,Prince of Wales is the place to be. On the other hand if you are a boring backpacker that doesn't like meeting people , listening to good music and meeting lovely girls .. then stay home .
Now in the middle east working ..looking forward to my next holidays
