The rooms are well equipped with lockers, closet and lights in your bed. The beds are big and mattres comfortable. There are nice areas to relax like the lobby and terrace in the... More

Stayed only one night at bunk hostel, bed was comfortable and nice, but there was no space for putting luggage in the room. There was also some smells in the room which makes the night sleep unpleasant. Toilets are not very clean.

The only negatives were that there wasn't a screen on the bed as advertised, and the upper bunk light seemed really bright and the people up there stayed awake really late. It wasn't quite what I expected, but it was fun, and there was just enough space for bags in the room. I loved the aesthetics of it, and that... More

The hostel itself was very clean and tidy and the overall style is modern. The breakfast as hostels go was good different jams and cereals . Cereal tastes of cardboard but that's normal . Toast was fine. The hostel itself lends out for free and no deposit smartphones with 4g and free international calls. This was amazing help getting round... More

A group of friend so we chose dorm style (8 beds/room). Modern contemporary design, very cute decoration. The whole hotel is very clean and the bed is comfortable. Just a bit difficult to find at the first time and it's quite far from the MRT station.

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.
