4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

Booking was a breeze! Location, price-wise, security, comfort & great staff - "thumbs-up". Exploring Singapura the 2nd time around was more pleasantly memorable... I wouldn't hesitate recommending this place : )

The hostel is situated in the Little India area of town very close to MRT (subway) stations and heaps of cheap and tasty Indian restaurants. The staff (Jonas and Shriram) are particularly friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean and the place has a safe feel about it. There is also free wifi and aircon and the complimentary breakfast is good. I would not hesitate recommending this place for budget travellers.

Room Tip: Maybe get a room away from the main road

Had a one night stay in Singapore and chose Mitraa Inn for its price. Location is a bit dry unless you like karaoke but walking distance to MRT station and Little India. Also has bus stop right infront of it which has dozens of different buses passing by.

Very friendly and helpful receptionist (Jonas).

Good Breakfast. Rooms are very clean. What I didn't like was the hospital/clinical smell in the elevators and corridors. Also, we booked an 8 share which was on the 3rd floor but we had to go up to 2nd floor and then use stairs to go up. Found that bizarre. Crowd was not as young as expected but met a few nice friends.

Amazing price for clean backpackers hostel with free wifi and breakfast!

I first stayed here shortly after it opened and everything was very new. It was my first hostel experience in over 25 years but Singapore hotel prices are frightening. I have been back about four times, once with my partly disabled wife and my daughter, who is a regular. It was and remains extremely clean, comfortable and friendly. WiFi access is extremely good and reliable. If you just need somewhere to sleep, it is excellent. Beds are very comfy, but the pillow is pretty insubstantial and the covering is very light. Sturdy bunk beds, thick sprung mattresses which are very comfortable and a substantial locker drawer under the bed big enough for laptops, rucksacks etc. I stayed again this week and it is beginning to show some signs of wear, but nothing serious. I had a four bed room to myself for one night and as the aircon is off when empty, the room now has a stale moist smell. which the aircon disperses quickly. Remember to order a towel and take some toiletries. They are available for purchase at reception, but I was in the shower (hot and good water pressure) before I realized there was no soap or shampoo. I paid SGD 30 for one night plus SGD 1 for a towel. Last time I think I paid SGD 28+1. I only wanted to sleep there but next morning I managed to do all my email over breakfast (toast and bananas that day) which I appreciated. I will continue to use it as my overnight stay place. The chicken rice restaurant just over the road is excellent. Five minute walk to Farrer Park MRT. Most rooms have no window.

My husband and I stayed there for 2 days and enjoyed our stay. The rooms were very clean, with a secure door lock and great air-con. The staff was friendly and the breakfast was basic ( Fruit, toast, jams or butter, coffee or tea). Great location near Little India and near by the MRT.

The downside of the Hostel was that the rooms were a jam packed with beds, with very little space to move around or to place your luggage. Lockers were available although they were very easy to break into as I just pulled it a bit and it opened.

Room Tip: If looking for privacy you might look into getting a private room. Dormitory rooms are very claustro...

I booked this place because it was cheaper and had great reviews. the bed was comfortable. My Aunt and Uncle were on this trip and they fit in one bunk though I booked two beds for them. Ensuite bathrooms is a good thing. Breakfast was filling enough plus you can just pack the bread and bring it with you. You can either use Farrer Park or Boon Keng stations. There is food available around but mostly Indian so if you don't like it. check out the food courts or 7-11. We had older people so the distance from the MRT was a bit of an issue but the bus stops right in front so from farrer we walked a bit and rode the bus (we had the singapore tourist pass so unlimited rides).
