Hi we just stayed at One Florence Close in Singapore which was good, clean place with free internet, air con, very friendly and helpful staff, funky furnishings but small rooms. It was next to the MRT (train system) which gets you EVERWHERE in Singapore and makes the whole place very easy to navigate. The "Island" you are looking for is called Sentosa Beach. You can get there via the MRT. I hope this helps.

cheap and grungy (?) sometimes come with one another. but not always. during our trip to singapore we stayed at the YWCA in fort canning, which we booked online at their hotel web site(http://www.ywcafclodge.org.sg). that cut down our hotel cost, so that we found a low-priced yet very nice hotel, clean, accessible, and full amenity. if you're planning to go to sentosa, you might want to look up the following hotel web sites:

We stayed at new 7th storey hotel; good location, next to Bugis Junction (tube) and ten min walk to famous Raffles Hotel. Paid approx 60 S$ per night i think for double with aircon. Bit tatty, but was clean.

the big water park with pools, and slides on Sentosa (aka Fantasy Island) was closed down some 5 years ago. There is now only one other water theme park called Wild Wild Wet which is really small and filled with kids! http://www.wildwildwet.com/

There're lots of dorms and hostels available from SGD$20++ per person, but you'll probably hv to share the room with up to 3~5 other travellers, unless if u get lucky, nobody else has booked in the same dorm on the same day as u.

If you like aircon, cleanliness, a free washing machine, wifi and cheapness (30 S$ for a double) and don't mind not being in the center of town, I recommend the following:
Me and the missus just spent 4 nights there and they deliver on everything promised.
Take a good look at tripadvisor before booking with the other hostels. It seems like a lot of places are charging high prices for disgusting toilets.
Sleepy Sam's is an affordable and centrally located place. A double with aircon is $89SD ($63USD). It is about a 5min walk to the Bugis MRT stop and there are lots of great Middle Eastern Restaurants within 2-3 blocks. They have free, fast wifi, and a great cafe downstairs. Check out our pictures from Singapore, including Sleepy Sam's here: www.greenaroundtheglobe.com/2010/01/28/singapore-pictures/
If you are looking at hostels I would recommend 98SG hostel (allijuned station). It is very close to the metro and there are a lot of restaurants around. It was very clean and I really enjoyed staying there. Getting to and from the airport was really easy too.

Instead of hotels which are relatively expensive in Singapore, you may want to consider staying at hostels. Many of the new hostels in Singapore are modern, clean and centrally located. Try Five Stones Hostel - http://www.fivestoneshostel.com/or Beary Good Hostel - https://www.abearygoodhostel.com/
alternatively, try one of the B&B options via sites like airbnb.

It is about a 5min airing to the Bugis MRT stop and there are lots of abundant Middle Eastern Restaurants aural 2-3 blocks. They accept free, fast wifi, and a abundant bistro downstairs.
