We stayed in a "standard size" dorm. We were 16 people in a dorm (which I find a lot for a standard size). However, it never felt too crowded. The rooms are built in a clever way: the cabins give you some privacy. We stayed in a double bed cabin and found it very nice. Beds and sheets are very...

I have a trip from my company a month ago. And with the budget, my company choose this hostel to stay. First of all, this is my 2nd time stay at hostel.

Great common area with TVs, computers and even a massage chair (have to pay). Breakfast (toast) is included and not too bad. Location is decent in Little India and takes about 15-20 minutes to get to the subway station. Lots of great Indian restaurants close by.

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.
