Staff was not helpful but rude…rooms were small and crampy, bathrooms smelly. Breakfast was reasonable. Location is closer to a mrt station. Overall not a satisfactory experience and the place is really overpriced for what we get.

We did not enjoy our stay at this hostel at all, we would have left if we had enough money to do so. Our "eight bedroom room" was actually twelve beds as it had four double beds in it. The room was so hot and stuffy, the air con didn't work properly and the fan didn't do anything. The room...

Location of this hostel is great! The place itself is an adventure since you will meet like-minded individual. But if you are not comfortable in sharing a room with strangers then hosteling is not for you. I recommend this hostel voz it is almost a center to a lot of tourist spots in Singapore! A walk to the Bus stop...

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.
