I stayed at Mitraa Inn for one night and was really impressed by the great value and service. I booked a deluxe room and felt like I was more in a hotel than in a hostel. The location in Little India has a lot of character (in a good way!) and is conveniently between 2 metros. Most importantly from my perspective though they have brilliant reception staff who couldn't be more helpful and understanding. The only negatives might be the breakfast which is minimal (but I think fine considering the price) and that noise travels easily so could be tricky if you're a light sleeper.

this is my first experienced to stay in the hostel but it was interesting, getting to know with other traveler from around the world.
this hostel has offer 1 room of 2 bed bunk which is suitable for 4 persons so if you travel with your family even bring young children is still acceptable plus the bathroom is inside your room. but the price they charge is per bed or per person still okay compare to tiny room in the 3 star hotel in singapore. simple breakfast is available every morning choices of bread and jam, fruits, coffee or tea.
the only thing that i don't like is the A/C in our room was too big therefore the wind out is too strong even i already select the lowest temp.

Room Tip: ask for the room with central AC instead of built in.

Booked via email, deposited 10% of total bill, paid in full upon arrival. Stayed overnight with a group of friends (we occupied two six-bed rooms with private bath). The bunk beds were twin size, and each bed can easily accommodate two persons so we placed our backpacks on the top bed and two persons shared each lower bed.

The room is clean, although there is not much space to move around. But we only wanted a place to sleep so that space to move wasn't an issue for us. The room had an airconditioning unit. The bathroom is also clean, and had a working hot/cold shower. There is a bidet. This is a budget dormitory-type accommodation so don't expect TV or ref in the room. Wifi is free but the signal is weak inside the room. If you need to press your clothes, an iron and ironing board is available for SGD 20 cents for each item. Just approach the counter so the staff can assist you. The staff are helpful and friendly. We spent SGD$30 each for the overnight accommodation, inclusive of breakfast.

Breakfast means toast, coffee/milk tea, hard-boiled egg, and fruits served in the common room at the ground floor. There are three choices of spreads for the toast- butter, peanut butter, and chocolate, a choice of coffee or milk tea. Serve yourself. I don't know if there's a limit but the staff assigned at the kitchen didn't seem to mind that we returned several times at the counter for the bread and the apples. If you are in for a longer stay, there's a huge fridge in the common room where you can place your food purchased outside, just label it. Otherwise, it would mean the food is free for all hostel guests. The Mitraa Inn also has a storage area for luggage in case you check out early, and just come back to pick up your luggage later.

Adapter for your gadgets may be loaned at the counter desk for SGD $1, or you may buy one from the famous Mustafa Center, a 24-hour supermarket, which is around ten minutes walk from the hostel. There is also a nearby 7-11. There's a bus stop right in front of the Inn's doorstep so commuting by bus wouldn't be a problem. The nearest MRT station is Farrer. Temples dot the street (Serangoon Road), as well as Race Course Road (back of Serangoon) where another Mitraa hostel is located.

My partner and I arrived in Singapore at a busy time of the year (August School Holidays 2012). All my usual accommodation was booked out however I was very lucky to stumble across the Mitraa Inn.
Check in was painless and friendly. We were escorted via a lift to our room. As soon as we opened the door to our room I knew that we had made a great choice! The room was newly renovated and spotlessly clean. The air conditioning worked perfectly and really cooled the room down in no time. The shared toilet and shower were located next door to our room. Breakfast was a simple self service and included eggs, toast and coffee.

The location in Little India is well serviced by bus, taxi and subway. A short walk away you will find the Mustfia Center, various food courts, temples and a public swimming pool.

So considering we paid the equivalent of two dorm beds at a backpackers the Mitraa Inn was excellent value. Compared to many other places that I have stayed in Singapore I can confidently recommend this establishment as clean, friendly and economical!

Room Tip: I guess a room facing the lane would be quieter than one facing the main road!

The place that we sent for two days was a good choice. The room was cozy and good amenities. Breakfast was simple but lovely. We loved hotel location,too. Otherwise, staffs could help for booking flight tickets and great city trip.
