Stayed at the Bunc for 3d2n and overall it was ok. We booked for the deluxe mixed of 8. Our roommates were friendly and decent. The room is quiet small but for a hostel it was ok. Space provided for the bags under the bed was huge but it was a bit hard as you need to actually bend down...

I stayed here for three nights and had a comfortable stay. The staff are friendly and the management professional. The lounge/lobby is well equipped with desktops that work well and the WiFi is good. Probably the best I've experienced in hostels over the last 6months of traveling. The location is good and you can get to most places from the...

This place is not that bad, we stayed on an 8 bed mixed room, its our first time to try a hostel by the way. There are a lot of deposits that you have to make. The bed is spacious but no privacy. There is adequate space for your luggage under the bed but be sure to have your own...

I stayed in Bunc for 6 nights in the beginning on Jan. I was upgraded to a double bunc for just myself which was nice. Few old stains on bed but nothing major. I did pay for a 16 bed mixed room and ended up just sharing with 11 boys - if you are a solo female I would recommend...

I stayed at Bunc for 7 nights, and boy where they a wake up call! First, the pictures that are displayed online are not 100% representative of what you get. The rooms smelled really nasty (like feet) when we arrived, and the beds in general were just small and uncomfortable. There was also no adequate space to put suitcases except...

Staying in Little India

Neighbourhood Profile
Little India
With a strong local Indian community, this pocket of Singapore can feel like another place and time. Wander past traditional barbershops while local residents in brightly coloured saris patronize retailers from decades past. Peruse streets lined with colourful shops as the aroma of curry tempts you to indulge. Listen to the Bollywood music echoing from storefronts and take in the stalls selling bright flowers, fabrics, and spices. At the 24-hour, four-level Mustafa Shopping Centre, you can shop through the night and find everything from pharmacy and grocery items to Bollywood DVDs and diamond necklaces. Singapore’s Little India offers a colourful, lively taste of the subcontinent and is well worth the visit.
