The hostel is located in Little India, (quite central part of the city), you'll find the hostel easily thanks to big sights. First, we had the bed next to the door but it was no problem to change it. Very kind employees who try to help where they can. Hostel offers free walking tours in cooperation with a professional guide,... More

Stayed 4 nights in this hostel. What can I say, the beds have a plastic cover which makes them feel moist and uncomfortable to sleep on. The rooms are extremely crampy and there's almost no space for you luggage. Furthermore, they are rather greedy with the air conditioning meanign that they disable it at 8 in the morning, meaning you... More

Hi AG, Thank you for taking time to write the review but however I think you might have mistaken us for another property. 1) We do not have Plastic covers over our beds. 2) Our Air conditioning is Automatically turned off at about 11am for our fresh air system toauto kick-in to start pumping cooled fresh air into the rooms...

It was my first experience staying at a hostel, and have to stay Bunc lived upto my expectations. It's definitely one of the best hostels out there. The place is so clean and tidy. The staff were really friendly and helpful, I'd definitely go back if and when i do visit Singapore again. Loved the stay.

Stayed here for 3 nights at a double bed, the room was clean and comfortable. Plenty of storage under your bed, a clean double bed with 4 pillows and 2 comforters. The bathroom was very clean which was a very substantial point for me. The location is also nice, located between the Little India and Bugis MRT station which was... More

Hey there Anissa, Thank you for recommending us ! Glad that we lived up to your expectations. It encourages us to continue doing the right thing. Sorry about the minor disturbance, we do have a quiet hours rule 11pm-7am in place but it seems we must really make our rounds more frequently to ensure the rule is observed at all... More

Very good Hostel, very kind people, very clean, and a good price. The Hostel stays in Litle Índia, with many indian people :-):-). The Metro is neer by, as also the Tekka Centre when you can eat a good meal and very cheap. I recomend to all backpackers.

Stayed at this hostel with my boyfriend sharing a double bed in a 12 person dorm, it came with two comforters.- the bed itself was very large and comfortable. However, there were a lot of hairs and dust all over the bed cover.... We just ended up laying out one of the 2 comforters we received and slept on that.... More

It was clean, modern, relaxing, as private as a hostel is going to get and good location. The service was great, especially Winnie - always smiling and ready to help. We enjoyed the food in the area Bugis, both the cheap street food and the food in the bottom of the shopping centre.

The hostel is very clean, with much room for luggage, as there are many shelfs, and changing room where you can leave your stuff. Hostel is in great position, Little India neighbourhood, with cheap restaurants and good souvenir shops. It is some 10 minutes walk from Little India metro station and while in this hostel taxi isn't needed. The only... More
