It was really nice, very clean and I had everything I needed. The people who worked here were really helpful and kind. The rooms were big enough. The girls and the boys have separate bathrooms, separate showers and toilets. My sheets were replaced once a week and the rooms were cleaned once a week. When you're alone it's also nice...

Stayed for 3 nights in the cheapest 16-bedroom dorm with 9 of my friends. Expected it to be dodgy, uncomfortable and perhaps even not get any sleep but the beds were so soft and warm that we sleeping was very easy. In the morning, the air-conditioning is extra cold so you'll wake up automatically at around 8am. The 4 stars...

Bunc Hostel is of the first few a great stay. Entry Reception kitchen and bathroom are clean. But I wasn't so happy with the rooms because they have no windows, so you felt a bit like in a prison. Bathroom in level 1 is very hot , and have no roof made. You get free breakfast and free wifi that's...

We had a double bed in a dorm. The bed and sheets were clean and the room was clean too. The set up is single beds on the top bunk and doubles on the bottom. There isn't a curtain or anything but you get two duvets so people tend to use one to sleep under and one as a curtain...

Hi Bunc Hostel, What happened to your China female cleaners that you used to have? I think female cleaners are better for hostel environment since 50% of your guests are females. They also kept the place super clean last time. Also, why are your cleaners staying at the same room as the guests in your Clarke Quay branch? This is...

I stayed here for a week in May in a 16 bed mixed dorm room. The room was fairly clean but at some points did have a smell, pretty sure that's just due to the amount of occupants. The beds were average, good for a hostel, but not very private at all. There wasn't really a partition so you were...

It is a cheap place to stay while vacationing. It is near to china town, clarke quay and mrt station. It's included breakfast, wifi, hot water. In an expensive hotel they don't provide breakfast.

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.
