I was quite surprised when i first enter bunc. Wasnt expecting the place to be better than what I had in mind due to the price. Everything is quite neat and clean. I like the way the place was design. The beds are really really comfy. the toilets are quite well equipped. All I can conclude is, bunc is simply worth and really wouldn't be a disappointment.

Bunc has a modern design. It's clean and conveniently located between two MRT lines. I like that they have kitchen facilities for usage.
The air conditioning was warm for me that i woke up with sweat. However it was cold for my boyfriend. I'd recommend stay at Bunc!

The decor is nice, very nice. Location is not fantastic but it's decor made up everything. As this plce is very new everything seems to be in tip top. Service is alright. Well, I got to say it again the design of the hostel made up for any faults if any.

It was my first time staying in a shared room in a hostel, and I was travelling alone, so I was really hoping it would be a nice place. Thankfully I had nothing to worry about, the staff are so nice, and always willing to give you advice about things to do in Singapore, everything is so clean and new, the value for money was really good, with free breakfast and a games room and garden for the social side of your stay, people from all over the world were staying in my room so you meet a good variety of travellers, it really has everything. It's a good ten minute walk to the nearest two tube stations, but that isn't that bad, and the amount of places to eat and get a drink more than makes up for it (and if you like Indian cuisine, you'll be spoilt for choice). Really recommend it, whether you're travelling alone or in a group.

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper floors are probably quieter.

This place has it all for the average metropolitan urban traveller on a budget. It is contemporary, fun, young, clean, convenient, comfortable, and affordable in singapore, one of the most expensive cities in the world.. The best thing is it has a lift! And rooftop patio, games room, lounges, comfy beds and a seven eleven next door literally. MRT is a little of a walk but ok distance. Little India is not the most desirable locations but hey that is almost where ALL hostels are located in singapore city. We went during full occupancy and it was still good. One grouse is that it could be more fun, and the atmosphere, a lil sterile for a youth hostel. Maybe it was just that particular weekend.
