This hostel is absolutely worth the money! The staff is very helpful, rooms & washrooms are clean. Breakfast is simple but yet to fulfill your tummy. It is located near the airport. The best part is the living area where you meet many different people and get a chance to interact with them.

+ The Location of this hostel is really Good, Very Near of MRT Station and bus stop. - The FO staffs were not helpful, talk about other guests with other staffs (using singapore -melayu language) in front of the guests. Luckily, I'm quite understand what their talking about and it's not me they're gossiping 😁. - The big lady (I didn't catch her name) at Front office is the rude ones. but mostly, the Front office staffs is really annoying and not friendly at all

Hidayah the reception was efficient in my check in and check outs. She was also kind to arrange bed changes for me late at night as i felt i had some insect bites. Changes made immidiately and a few days later the whole room was disinfected washed cleaned and sanitised. Environment is clean...and friendly. Wifi is superfast. Since its a hostel and due to high occupancy the showers may be a mess at the end of the day but do notify the staff they will get it cleaned for comfort of all. Bfast is basic and cereal drinks provided are a bonus.. A must stay place for avid travellers... Convinient to explore bugis, arab street little india all with walking distance.. Shops etc are located walk away.

A Basic hostel which is located just opposite to the metro entrance, Bunc hostel offers a good stay at a reasonable price. However, there are no lockers available. Plus the cleanliness needs to be improved a lot. Given the standards of cleanliness in Singapore, Bunc hostel has to improve a lot. The staff are helpful. It has elevator too.

I totally agree with what others already wrote about the cleanliness, the short distance to the MRT, the location in the hub of Little India, WiFi working very well, the friendly and helpful staff, AC from 6pm to 9am, great value for money and that they have a lift... I really was surprised about the rooms and beds! They are like a capsule, but sidewise and all with inbuilt light, plug and a big lockable storage underneath. I wasn't disturbed by the guests in the upper beds at all, because the solid construction of the "capsule" allowed me to go on sleeping - on a very comfy mattress! - when another guest climbed up! No squeaking or shaking like in the normal bunk beds. I extended my stay there, because all the above mentioned points added up and made my stay very comfortable. The only minus point was the breakfast, but as it was included in the great price, I don't complain ;-)

I traveled with my family to Singapore and stayed at Bunc Hostel. The hostel is good place to stay, with the only option of breakfast as bread-butter-jam. The Air Conditioning system works very well, the cleanliness is good. You also get a storage below the bed. The only thing which I didn't like is the bathrooms, though they are common, do not have any doors and they have only curtains, which is bit odd, from the point of view of privacy. Also, do remember, kids upto the age of 12 are not allowed in the hostel.

We were staying for 4 days in this Hostel. I would say that our experience was nice. The wifi was working properly & fast, the location was just one-minute walk to the Jalan Besar MRT station, breakfast was provided in the morning, the restrooms in general were clean (hot water was working well), and the bed was comfy. I would suggest several improvements for Bunc Hostel: 1. The sink's cleanliness can be improved and monitored 2. Provide utensils (spoon, fork & chopstick) for guests 3. The bed condition can be slightly upgraded (Quality was great, just a bit cleaner bed linen would be awesome) 4. Make sure the bathroom air exhaust work properly, since sometimes the smell was not very nice. I reccomend this stay for people who want to save money with an accommodation located close to a lot of attractions. If you are a flexible traveler and on a budget trip, this might be the place that you're looking for. Since you are staying with approximately 10 people, be sure to compromise your normal behaviour and condition. Check in time: After 15:00 Breakfast time: Between 7:00 - 10:00 Check out time: Before 11:00 Nevertheless, I really enjoyed staying here and definitely would come again in the future.

Bedroom and bathroom is clean and comfortable. The hostel is near MRT jalan besar, you can walk only 2 minutes, so that you can go anywhere as fast as you want. I got in here for 4 nights and I got an amazing price from online travel agent. I’ll be back here again. Thank u
