We were at the bunc for 4 nights and it was great. The staff is super friendly and always ready to help out plan your activities. The hostel environment is soothing with a cool black and white theme. The bunc allowed us to store our luggage until check-in time and stored the luggage after check-out until we are going to the airport at no extra cost.
The rooms: Excellent bedding, pillows and covers. There are lockers under the bed that have enough room to fit the largest hand carry luggage and even small check in luggage bags. Each bed includes a full light, night light, a reading lamp and one power socket. (Converters are available at a small deposit with no charge). The AC is turned on from 6 PM. I visited the room only once during the day time but even then the room is quite cool.
The washrooms: With separate washrooms for males and females and electronic locks bunc has done a great effort to make the stay very comfortable. The industrial fans in the wash rooms are a great idea. Its always easy to find a dry washroom anytime of the day. Unlike some hostels, bunc has done the homework and has provided water and paper options in all the toilets so that people from all over the world are comfortable. Each floor has washrooms to maintain a good bathroom to people ratio
The breakfast: The breakfast includes bread, jams, peanut butter and butter along with fruits, tea and coffee. Breakfast cereals and milk is also included with top notch toasters, ovens. A kitchen is also available 24x7 for more adventurous people to prepare there own meals with a shared fridge and special lockers to keep the dry foods.
The location: 10mins to the nearest MRTs (Bugis and Little India). bunc is in walking distance to the must visit 24hour mother-of-all-department stores, The Mustafa. There is some construction work going on near the bunc but is quite quiet in the night. The Sim Lim Square is also quite near.
Overall, bunc was a great place. The only thing I missed is that bunc does not offer tea/coffee making facility around the clock.
