So I have to put my bag in my friend's locker. The restroom is clean. Overall is average. I just don't like the staff... More

Clean, well suited and in verry good price. Central 65 is near MTR station just in heart of Little India and in nearest neighbour of arab street. Stuff People are verry helpfull and kind. For sure we will stay here again during our next visit in Singapore.

Central 65 is definitely a home, away from home! I literally left my heart here. I love the capsule bed and I love how good the wifi connection is even if they told me ahead of time that sometimes it becomes slow (maybe I got used to Manila's poor internet connection). My capsule's light is broken, I reported it and... More

The staff are friendly, bedding, pillow, and the rest are good if not great, but the bathroom is not what I expected with low pressure water shower on top floor, which at least each water heater have a pump to increase the pressure to have a better shower experience, which here is Singapore, and should have better standard than the...

Hostel is quite clean, staff are very friendly. The rates are very reasonable. Beds comfortable, air conditioning great! Only one problem for our entire stay! And I'll admit it is completely out of the hands of staff.. However other guests in the dorm need to learn that 2am in the morning is not an acceptable time to start a conversion... More

I really enjoyed my stay in this hostel. The beds were really confortable, you can have some privacy by closing your curtain. The rooftop is really nice, unfortunately I didn't get the chance to try the jacuzzi. The breakfast is simple but good everything you need is there. I definitely recommend it!

I was here in January so the name was still B88 Hostel. We booked the 6 beds female dorm but upon arrival, we were informed that the dorm was fully booked so they gave us the 8 beds dorm instead. Even so, they kept the occupants to 6 person only. Bed was comfortable and clean. Bathrooms for male and female... More

I stayed for 3 nights in the female dorm. It was clean and the staff were very helpful and friendly. They provide wifi, charger, and even blow dryers. It's also a 10 minute walk from Bugis Station. It's located near shops, hawker stalls, and restaurants. I had a very pleasant stay in the hostel.

10 minutes walk from BTS Bugis, 200 meters from Little India and lovely restaurants. I stayed in a female dorm for three nights in the second, secured floor where there was a really clean room, nice, about one-meter-wide beds, small lockers and AC for 12 women. Shared toilets and showers were alright and there's a nice jacuzzi on the rooftop.... 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.
