I stayed at Bunc for 7 nights, and boy where they a wake up call! First, the pictures that are displayed online are not 100% representative of what you get. The rooms smelled really nasty (like feet) when we arrived, and the beds in general were just small and uncomfortable. There was also no adequate space to put suitcases except...

I stayed in Bunc Hostel as a friend recommend me to try the place during my last visit to Singapore in Jan 2017. While the place is super clean and friendly staff with a decent break fast, I would like to mention about customers who exploit the hospitality of the premises to maximum by misbehaving. 1.

The 16 rooms were a bit smelly.. Not the cleanest everywhere either. However there is breakfast included and common rooms at fairly clean. Check in is fairly fast and the prices are alright for Singapore. Didn't like spending much time in the rooms though.

I stayed here for 2 nights in September 2016. Good Hostel, clean rooms and very friendly staff. Free complimentary breakfast and WiFi. Easy access from the main road. It's very closed to little India.

This is a great hostel. We arrived late in the evening and we could still check in, the reception is open 24/7. The staff is very friendly and the common rooms are really clean. Also the common bathrooms are modern and perfectly clean. There's shampoo and showergel in the showers and hair brushes near the mirrors. Very practical for girls....

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.
