The Bunc Hostel was very good for a hostel. It was clean, air-conditioned, free wifi, provided computers, a kitchen, washing machines, entertainment area with a projector and bean bags, and a large dining area. The staff are friendly and very helpful (Winnie told us how to get places, where to see things, where the best food was etc.). Even though... More

the service here is impeccable. Winnie knows the area very well and was happy to point out where to eat. We didn't book, although we should have, so we ended up spending one night. Beds were super comfy and the showers were clean (plus hot water!) best advice is to book before you head there, they seem to book fast.

Nice environment, nice service, nice breakfast provide! The traffic here is quite convenient since it's near to Little India MRT station, and the food here is mainly Indian food so it depends personal preference to say it's a good place for dining. Thanks a lot for providing such good hostel for backpacker.

The bed and pillows were comfy but the design of the bunks is a little weird as there is a big hole at the upper bunk which makes us at the lower bunk feel a little uncomfortable. The dorm room also hardly had a space to walk into. Sometimes, guests are having problems where to put their stuff because the... More

The staff is friendly and the hostel has a modern design. The room is quite noise and without windows, you should share an "heavy" air with other guest. Good compromise quality-price. The share bathroom are clean

Dear TheTravelBloke, Thank you for making time to write a review for us. We're glad that your stay with us have been a pleasant one.

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.
