Two of the most important considerations in looking for lodgings while traveling are price and quality. This holds true even for people on a budget — you obviously want to pay as little as possible, but you also don’t want to stay in a dump (no point in being miserable while traveling).

It can be especially tricky finding good, cheap accommodations in Singapore — the most expensive city in the world in terms of cost of living — but there is a surprisingly large number of options for people on a budget. Here are the 18 best cheap hostels in Singapore, based on a search in Booking.com and TripAdvisor.
