My partner and I stayed here for 8 nights, just recently in May 2013.
The private room with ensuite bathroom is adequate, with enough space for 2 people who are travelling lightly.
There are 2 private en-suite rooms, both of which are close to the street and reception. Most of the lower windows are bordered up, save a small window in the bedroom and bathroom that allow natural light into the room.
In regards to the bathroom, the toilet is on opposite ends to the shower and does not get wet when the shower is on. While the shower has a shower curtain, it does share the same floor as the bathroom, and drains via the shower drain and a drain under the sink, however the bathroom is spacious enough that the whole bathroom doesn't get wet.
The bed and pillows are firm but not uncomfortable, and very clean.
The free breakfast provided was simple (toast, cereal, tea and coffee). We bought our own honey and fruits from the 24 hour store around the corner and added them to our breakfast. The communal kitchen upstairs, although we didn't use it, seemed to be equipped with all the basics.
Bunc was easy to find, in a great area of Singapore that was bursting with culture. There is a plethora of cheap food options in every direction, much to our delight!
The Little India and Bugis MRT stations were an easy 10 min walk from Bunc. There is some construction work happening on the MRT at the moment, so there is a bit of noise outside the hostel during the day, but we didn't have a problem with it as we were mostly out.
The Bunc staff were friendly and willing to assist us with all our enquiries. Bunc is great value for anyone looking for affordable accommodation in Singapore.
