I stayed here for a week in May in a 16 bed mixed dorm room. The room was fairly clean but at some points did have a smell, pretty sure that's just due to the amount of occupants. The beds were average, good for a hostel, but not very private at all. There wasn't really a partition so you were...

It is a cheap place to stay while vacationing. It is near to china town, clarke quay and mrt station. It's included breakfast, wifi, hot water. In an expensive hotel they don't provide breakfast. I know this because my aunt and my other two cousins had to pay for their breakfast when they stayed at concorde, novotel, and mercure hotel...

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.
