It is a well maintained nice hostel. It is a bit of a walk from Bugis MRT station (about 500-600 mts) but once you get to know the route, doesn't feel that far. Staff is friendly and helpful. Bathroom has plenty of shower rooms and toilette inside. I never had to wait in a queue or something. They are maintained...

I stayed in the double bed dormitory, which overall was clean & comfortable. The only drawback was how stuffy the room got and it smelled of socks as there weren't ant windows. There is a big need for more ventilation and extractor fans. Apart from that its worth the price compared to other hotels in Singapore. The bathrooms were extremely...

The staffs here were all friendly and willing to help you. They even have a tourist info desk that you can ask any question of the city. I wanted to buy stamps for my postcards, and they gave me really detailed instruction of how to get to the post office. Overall, I stayed here for five nights and I think...

Overall its a value for money property. 6 of us stayed in a 6 bedded dorm and we felt its too tight when all are in the room. Location is good, friendly staff. Common rest rooms need to be cleaned on a regular intervals. Not used Wi-fi, so no idea about that.

My friend and I decided to travel to SG during Golden Week (Japan Holiday) and we decided to stay at Bunc Hostel in Little India for the first 3 days. We payed roughly SGD30 (PHP900) on the first night and around SGD20-SGD25 on the next two. If you book earlier, you'll chance upon their promos, it would cost SGD21 or...

The facilities of this place were great. Comfortable beds, nice bathrooms, open common space, key card security. Although it is located downtown, it was still quite a walk from the MRT (roughly 10 minutes from Little India stop) than other hostels. Also, they have some hidden charges like towel rental or adapter rental, whereas others hostels often give towels for...

Modern, clean hostel. We stayed in a dorm for max. 12 people. Rooms are small for 12 but nicely designed so you have some privacy. Good airconditioning. Bathroom feels hot (no AC) but has good showers. There was no daylight in our room and we missed waking up through the light. Simple breakfast with toast and cornflakes.

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.
