On the good side, this hostel offers confortable and clean capsule beds, internet was very fast (200 mbps) and free coffee with very simple breakfast (cereal and toast). Location is good too, But the shower and toilet were so disguisting, they litterally dont wash them appart from putting a bit of water on the floor. There are hair everywhere. The...

You get what you pay for but still they can do something about their toilets. A train station was being built by that time when we were there, so hopefully in the future it will be something more accessible. It's just the cleanliness of the toilet was really important for me, but other than that, this place is sort of...

Clean. Fresh. Nice lobby with places to sit and relax or use internet. Free tea, coffee and water. Nice staff. So if you are in Singapore and want to save money in an extremely expensive city, I do recommend to stay here. Location is also OK.

The hostel is quite alright for this price near the Singapore city centre. The capsules are big enough so are the lockers too. The bedroom was ok clean but the bathroom could need a little cleanup. The so called breakfast was very sporadic just toast and two types of cerials. Very positiv is that little India is just across the...

Never coming back to that place. Doesn't matter how much an accommodation costs. Cleanliness doesn't cost so much. No one cleans there. Bathrooms had the same dirt every single day. Bedsheets were covered with stains, cockroaches everywhere, water dripping from the ceiling, smelly and freezing AC. I was just disgusted and waiting for the night to end. Plus they have...

This hostel has the capsule style bunk beds. The lounge/lobby area downstairs is ok but the room itself was terrible. They firstly gave me a key to someone else's bed, then gave me a key to a room where the A/C was broken. The bed they finally gave me had the light broken and locker broken. I asked them 3...

This place is very good in terms of value. Its located centralized enough to be near the major hubs, eaterys and transport like mrt and buses. It has friendly atmosphere. The place is clean and bathrooms are well maintained. Dont expect too much, its a hostel afterall.

The location of the hotel is pretty centralized, with 2 MRT stations within walking distance (About 10 to 15 minutes) so that's great. They have a cafe attached to the check-in counter, and a staff there at all times. It's pretty clean, and quite satisfactory to a point. Safety isn't an issue, as you actually need a keycard before you...

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.
