My Fiance and I stayed here on 13/1/17 for 1 night. We arrived around 11:30 although check in wasn't until 3pm. When we arrived the receptionists did kind of look at us as if to say are you for real trying to check in now and took them to look up, I don't think they realise people are fully aware...

The 16 rooms were a bit smelly.. Not the cleanest everywhere either. However there is breakfast included and common rooms at fairly clean. Check in is fairly fast and the prices are alright for Singapore. Didn't like spending much time in the rooms though.

I stayed here for 2 nights in September 2016. Good Hostel, clean rooms and very friendly staff. Free complimentary breakfast and WiFi. Easy access from the main road. It's very closed to little India.

Also the common bathrooms are modern and perfectly clean. There's shampoo and showergel in the showers and hair brushes near the mirrors. Very practical for girls....

Impressive first hostel experience. I stayed here on a school trip for 2 nights and was in a room with 5 of my friends. It was a clean and neat hostel with friendly staff. The only thing that bugged me was how loud the fans were.

Staying in Little India

Neighbourhood Profile
Little India
With a strong local Indian community, this pocket of Singapore can feel like another place and time. Wander past traditional barbershops while local residents in brightly coloured saris patronize retailers from decades past. Peruse streets lined with colourful shops as the aroma of curry tempts you to indulge. Listen to the Bollywood music echoing from storefronts and take in the stalls selling bright flowers, fabrics, and spices. At the 24-hour, four-level Mustafa Shopping Centre, you can shop through the night and find everything from pharmacy and grocery items to Bollywood DVDs and diamond necklaces. Singapore’s Little India offers a colourful, lively taste of the subcontinent and is well worth the visit.
