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. Lively neighbourhood Little...

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.

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.

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.

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.
