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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

Staying in Little India

Neighborhood 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 colored saris patronize retailers from decades past. Peruse streets lined with colorful 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 Center, 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 colorful, lively taste of the subcontinent and is well worth the visit.
