stayed there for one night in the mid size dorm for 8. It is not possible to stay in the room during the day as there is no ventilation/window. Aircon is only on at controlled hour. Unfortunately room 108 aircon was noisy (like a vacuum cleaner) and not strong enough for the 6 pax sharing the shoebox room that night.... More

Very comfy double bed for a very cheap price. Clean and easy access to the MRT. Included was free wifi and breakfast. The staff were really friendly and exceedingly helpful. Very, very happy with our stay at Bunc!

Hello Alex, Thank you for taking time to write us this lovely review. Once the MRT station right outside Bunc opens, it would be even more convenient to stay with us! Brownie points for that! We look forward to welcoming you back here with us. :) Cheers! More

Stayed for two night with my girlfriend. Directions we were given were excellent, 10 minute walk from the MRT. Rooms were nice we had a comfortable double bed, no windows so was nice and dark. Free tea and toast in the morning was good, although having to pay $3 each for a towel seemed scandalous after paying so much money... More

Hi Bt, Thank you for your review.

Stayed in November 2013 for 4 nights in a double bed dorm with my partner. Place was clean and staff helpful. The double bed dorm, which slept upto 24 at one time was OK but smelt a bit musty after a few days due to amount of people. Only complaints though, breakfast was plentiful and showers decent too.

The rooms in bunc are cosy and the shower facilities are well equipped. It is located near Bugis MRT which allows easy access to other parts of Singapore. The common area is a great place for discussion and small parties. Definitely a great place to stay, especially for people travelling in large groups!

Bunc is in a prime location in little India and is a perfect hostel for backpackers staying in Singapore. The rooms and bathrooms are kept very clean and the staff is friendly. Also has a nice garden area for getting away from busy Singapore.
