This hostel is very clean and well organized. The staff are friendly and helpful and most importantly for me, its very quiet. The clientele are mostly from South East Asia, which means no drunken idiots disturbing you at all hours of the night.

Location - Walking distance to Bugis MRT. Near food hawkers. Near Sim Lim. Ambiance / Amenities - Good for budget travelers. Clean rooms and toilet & bathroom. Sleek, minimalist, no frills. Staff - Receptionists are friendly, professional, helpful. The lady manager/boss is kinda cold, snobbish (not smiling, not greeting, with I-don't-give-a-damn attitude). She didn't even say "Thank you or Bye"...

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.
