@ dancedtrance :
Actually for me Valuair is much better than Air Asia as they offer a reliable service...I've been using Valuair (SUB - SG and vice versa) for more than 12 times and never they delayed the departure time...

I'm going to Spore maybe on first week of Oct (maybe around 8-9 Oct departure)...On 9 October there will be Jaben gathering (every Friday) which I wouldn't want to pass along..

Anyone care to join on Oct? Can share room...:D

waaah, why don't during the lebaran? on that that I think I can't go to singapore, I would be in the middle of a project.

$35 is what I've seen on their sites, better give them a call to ascertain the rates.

I prefer YMCA to Lucky Plaza. Stayed there couple times with my mates and relatives, it's always been a pleasure for my wallet :D


I don't know now, because my friend said he got a place which cost around 80SGD and it can fit 6 people in a room..

google: "singapore backpackers hostel"

rates are around $20-$30 for dorm room. (satu ruangan bisa 6-15 beds)
quite safe kok. kebanyakan turis2 bule dari eropa yg nginep disitu.
just lock everything valuable, and/or don't leave them in the hotel.

Bugis backpacker hotel has one of the best location. It's right across from Bugis Junction and Bugis MRT. 1 MRT Stop from Cityhall.

Price is not cheapest, and facilities and service can be better, but the others with better facilities and service are further (i.e The Inncrowd di Little india).

Gw dah berapa kali di Bugis backpackers. Receptionistnya encim2 umur 40an.. very unfriendly. :P

Oh, and Valuair is also good. Gw dah pernah naik sekali.

sorry if my grammar is not very good.

@ben,
yes, you must realize that valuair is the low-cost carrier, so the services is not same or even better than garuda or singapore airlines

if you want to fly with valuair from jakarta, i suggested you to fly Jetstar(they make some codeshare with valuair)their flight number started with JQ(check on valuair.com.sg)...

last time i flew to singapore JQ114 with the newest jetstar's plane,how lucky i am :)
