Bunc Hostel
Reviewed 26 May 2012

Its new, its well planned, the staff is friendly and the lobby indeed looks like an ikea showroom. The double-bunk beds are very comfy and the location is quite nice. Its a little pricey but definitely worth it. Bathrooms and toilets very clean, typical continental breakfast (6:30 - 10:30, thumbs up here, too) in a sometimes too small common area. Recommended.

Hi Amy,

We are glad you liked our Double beds in the Dorm. Its a new concept in Hosteling that allows couples traveling together to share a spacious bed or the solo traveler who wants a bigger bed space. We hope this concept catches on with the backpacker's community.

Thanks for recommending us. we would love to host you again when you come back to Singapore.

Hostel is close to the MTR, right in the heart of Little India. Delicious free included breakfast! The staff are incredibly helpful, and will go out of their way to help you. Dorms are clean with 2 extra pillows and super comfy comforters! The long table style breakfast made it easy to meet people as well! great play room on the roof as well!
