At S$20/night you don't get a room - only a bed in a shared dormitory (and probably not even a nice one at that price).
The cheapest rooms available are around S$60/night, but you better spend S$100 or more to get something half-decent.

AIP : Approval in Principle

TEP : temporary employment pass letter given to allow employment before issuance of the actual pass (the TEP is part of the AIP but is not something that everybody gets. Often S will have or not have, depending on where they are coming from.

Thanks all for your replies. Sorry for confusion caused.

Let me clarify...

I am coming here to work for more than a year. I have AIP for Employment Pass. I will be getting EP once I come to Singapore. For the first month, I will be alone as my wife will be coming after one month to join me. So for the first month, I want to stay in a place where I can spend $800 for that month. During this one month, I will be searching for house where we both can stay together for more than a year.

So my first task is to get a place to stay for one month alone (for $800).

My Second task is to get place to stay along with my wife once she comes in Singapore for probably more than year.

Ah now it makes sense now.

Technically you can rent anywhere because you have long-term residency as given in your EP. But it will be difficult for you to convince a landlord to let you rent for one month only.

Perhaps you may bunk in with friends who have spare room if you don't have the budget for Serviced Apartments etc.
