The Mitraa
Ranked #63 of 241 Specialty Lodging in Singapore
Reviewed December 7, 2013

We stayed here for about 3 days when in Singapore. It's located very good in terms of transport and a 10-min walk to Little India. Walking from the MRT to the hostel at night seems safe enough.
The hostel staff was very helpful with everything from guiding and questions about restaurants nearby.
Free wifi - which worked OK.
There was an issue with one of our 'roommates'. After a long day walking around Singapore, we came home to a room with the lights switched off. First thing we saw was a naked man fumbling around with his computer and sheet. He was obviously having a private moment... Immediately we walked down to the reception and asked what to do. At first we thought that we had had an all female dorm, so we were also surprised to see a man in our dorm room. We explained what had happened, and the receptionist (very nice guy) ran up to the room and talked with the guy. He arranged that the man would switch to another room, as the receptionist could tell that we felt uncomfortable which we were/are truly happy about. Thanks!! :-)
Also, free breakfast (toast with jam or Nutella, coffee/tea, bananas or apples) and free luggage storage.

Its a well maintained little hostel barely 500m from the Farrer Park MRT, which makes travel to other locations within Singapore very convenient. The rooms are a little small-ish in size, but since my 6-seater room was never at full capacity, we managed.
The one hitch I felt was the drying area which basically was the railings of a metal staircase. Considering its always humid/rainy in the city, they should have a little better areas for letting the clothes dry out.
Apart from that, the staff was friendly and helpful. Though one of my room-mates did mention a sour experience of having another hostelmate trying to get too close for comfort, I suggest keeping a good distance from stangers.

Room Tip: Mention specifically for a lower bunk if you want one.

Angel...you are a angel indeed.
You feel like you are in home and a part of a huge family who help each other for every simple thing.
Breakfast is like what you have at home! so do not expect a extravagant spread from across the world.
They have adequate showers n toilets.
Kitchenette is cool too.
They have a vending machine for drinks.

You will fall in love with the place and people :)

Room Tip: All rooms are good!

What more can I say that hasn't already been said in other reviews. From the moment I arrived (close to midnight), everytime I went out in the morning and arrive back in the evening, Jonahs, Angel and Sebastian always had a smile and always made you feel welcome. Breakfast is simple, but adequate and rooms are the same, but for the price you pay in Singapore it's excellent value.

We stayed at the hostel for 2days and 1night. All I can say is that, our stay is absolutely stress-free! Super nice staff (especially ANGEL) and super clean room. The internet connection was also very good. The hotel is very close to the MRT (Farrer Station) , which means you can get to many of the major tourist attractions by foot. Little India is nearby,and the 24hr Shopping Mall the Mustafa Centre.Definitely worth staying :)

This was our first hostel on our trip of 5 months and it was great! Location was perfect in little India, loads of places to eat. We had a private room and all we needed, comfy bed, ac and lockers (u need your own locks) angel on the desk was fab in giving us advice on where to go. Recommend going to the marina, a little food market which was to die for ad the views were incredible!
Would def stay again.
