Perfect location, clean, free brekky (toast, tea, coffee, cereal), free water, secure rooms and lockers, nice little shelf on the top bunk to fit most your stuff. Not easy to meet people but I like being alone in cities. Areas for improvement: The Wi-Fi is awful at peak times (10-11am, 9-midnight). The personal light by your bed is far too...

I went on booking.com to select this hotel for a stay but I had mistakenly selected the wrong room. Little did I know I was just reserving the room and that my mistake can be rectified easily since I intended to stay there anyway.

Overall a very swanky and modern hostel with all the facilities expected, but it seems that as of late the place is in need of some much needed maintenance. The men's bathroom has water leaking, the soap dispensers are broken, the taps don't stay on, the door locks don't always lock... Etcetera. Plus, there's a 10% fee hidden away on...

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.
