Best hostel I've ever stayed at”
The only bad thing is that the hostel is located in a secluded location between Little India and Bugis stations. Therefore, it is quite hard to find this place if you dont know the area well. Even many taxi drivers dont know the location. It took me 20 minutes to look for this place. The staffs of the hostels are really friendly. They let me to check in early. The room of the hostel is really nice and big. The beds are separated into little cubicles, so you have your own privacy. There is also hanger and shelves by your bed to put some of your stuffs. They also provide you with your own night light, so you can do some readings at night without disturbing the other guests. The hostel is in a really good maintenance. They cleaned the public shower / toilet area about more than 3 times a day and they changed the bedding almost everyday. I consider the hostel to be really safe. I left my mobile in the shower room, but someone returned it to the receptions. There is a room under the bed to put your luggage and you can lock it. If the luggage is too big, then you can always store it at the room by the reception. The fun room (as its called) is fun. It has 1000 movies to choose from and xbox etc. They also have kitchen so you can cook your own meals. Plates, cups, spoons, forks, pans, pots are provided, which is really good for those of you who want to cook. I didnt cook at all when I was there, because there are so many eateries around the hostel ranging from only 3 dollars. Overall, I really happy that I picked to stay at Bunc. Much much better condition than the cheap hostels in Geylang. I would definitely go back here
Worth a stay!”
I like the look of this hostel! A bit surprised when the girl on the front desk know my name when I checked in; she's really nice too - forgot her name, though, but worry not, everyone there seems really nice so that's a plus :) If you don't mind walking for 9 minutes (more or less) to the MRT (the nearest one is Bugis I think?) this hostel is worth to stay. There are bus stops nearby as far as I noticed but I always prefer the MRT. There is a construction that is ongoing for a while now (since at least last time I visited Singapore in July 2013). It has a little street/shortcut to get there, make it looks like it's a bit dangerous to pass by at night but as a solo traveler walking from Bugis MRT to Bunc@Radius I always feel safe. What I really like about Bunc@Radius is the 24-hr front desk service, it gave me an extra safe feeling. I did not try breakfast since I'm a vegan but looks like it's a normal type of breakfast; toasts, cereals, juice? Bathroom is separated between woman and man and is rather clean. Although I prefer hostels that are closer to the MRT than 9 minutes (say, less than 5 minutes walking distance), I would stay here again.
The best hostel in Little India and Singapore”
this is hands down the best hostel in little india and one of the top hostel's you will find in singapore. this was my first time staying at a hostel and i didn't know what to expect, but after seeing the photos online i thought the place looked nice. ...it was. i was traveling alone and looking for a place for a week or so. it was an amazing deal for the price i paid for what the hostel offered. they have a nice kitchen if you're in the mood to cook or just take less than a one minute walk around the corner for some nice local food. their location is very convenient to the mrt (less than 10 minute walk). there is a 7-11 just seconds from the hostel. their beds were actually more comfortable than my own bed at home and you have your own little private area with book shelf. if you are looking for a safe, clean, nice hostel then book with them. if nothing else then check them out for yourself when you arrive in that area. if i am in singapore traveling alone or with friends i will definitely plan to go back to bunc.
Great accomodation in a great location! ”
Our stay at the Bunc@Radius was great. We stayed here for 4 nights in a larger dorm with double beds. The room was clean and well maintained. Beds/pillows were really comfortable and spacious. Washrooms were also really clean. Another great thing about Bunc@Radius is it's location. Located walking distance to the subway was really convenient. The only thing that was not the greatest was the breakfast. We weren't expecting much for breakfast any since it was a hostel. Most of the time we ate around Little India or headed to another area for a more fulfilling breakfast. We would highly recommend this place! One of the best hostel experiences we've had.
Far better than Hotels”
The staff was very cordial and helpful. Facilities were very nice especially the Handy phone they provided was surprise for me and was very useful as we were travelling sans tourist agents. I recommend tourists to stay at Hostels (especially Bunc, Little India) when they visit Singapore rather in high-end hotels which does not cater to our needs as being a tourist we are always out of the hotel. Bunc provided us with just what we needed and it did not waste any money decorating their hostel with unnecessary amenities. Thanks Bunc. Will visit U again.
Great location, brand new, great staff”
This is a fantastic hostel. The beds are in little cabins rather than bunks so although in a dorm, it almost feels like you are in your own room (except there is a sniffing man that has not encountered tissues). The bed linen is crisp and clean and what you would expect from a far more expensive hotel. The staff go out of their way to help. I was meeting friends in Singapore so I cannot comment on the social aspect of the hostel but it is fantastic for the lone traveller. It is located near the red light district but Singapore is very safe. There are pleant of restaurants near by and a couple of streets behind the hostel, walking towards the CBD, there are plenty of bars to be found. Little India provides a glimpse of Singapore not always encountered by travellers- away from the glitzy malls and pristine streets.
Good Budget option for short stays”
Having read good reviews about this place, I was looking forward to my short stay at the Bunc. Maybe it was my tough luck, but on the night I stayed there, the neighbouring room was occupied by what seemed to be a sports team of teen-aged girls. Needless to say the bathroom & the corridor was a bit of a mess that night. Since my stay was short (10 pm to 7 am) I cant be sure if the hotel staff would have cleaned it up the next day. The Ladies Dorm (which is what I chose to stay in) looks nothing like the rooms in the pics (more closed & smaller with only 8 bunks per room); but for my purposes it was sufficient. I would say these rooms were a bit stuffy, but maybe the regular rooms are what Bunc is well known for. Liked the simple breakfast options & especially the staff who offered to call & book my cab. Would stay at Bunc again, but maybe will try the regular rooms as opposed to the Ladies Dorm.
Value for money. Great location. Nice hostel.”
It was my third times at Bunc Hostel.This time I stayed in 8-bed Room so it was very quiet in this room compare to the other rooms that have more beds. The bed was very comfortable and they provided 2 pillows for every beds. The common area is well-designed and you can meet lots of interesting people there. The Rocher MRT has finished since Dec,2015 that is very close to Bunc hostel so it is very convenient to travel by MRT. There are many restaurants around the hostel and some are open 24 hr. I would stay here again next time. See you Bunc Hostel!
Good value, clean pod hostel”
We have quite enjoyed our stay so far at Bunc Hostel, intending to stay for a week but have extended our stay for the entire time we are in Singapore. Aircon: Yes WIFI: Very good, but loses signal in some places Amenities: The bathrooms are incredibly immaculate, they provide decent bedding and two comfortable pillows each which is a lot more than I have had in other places. Breakfast is cereal and toast which is good. Lovely area up top to chill out and catch up online. There is an equipped kitchen up the top as well. Staff: Fantastic cleaning team and friendly front reception hosts. Would definitely recommend. Transport: Rochor MRT is a short walk (5-10 mins)
Great hostel but bad in location”
Helpful staff, clean and nice interior design. Free breakfast everyday. Room with air-cond and free wifi. Clean beds with thick comforter and comfortable pillow. The nearest MRT station is Little India that takes 10 minutes walking distance. Along the way to the Bunc the area is crowded with Tamil people, cuisines and jewelry shops. There is nothing much to explore around the hostel at night though.
New hotel with good facilities”
the stay was nice. staff were very friendly and helpful. the best thing is the facilities are quite new to compare with other hostel in the area. the location is one of its pros. little india provides easy access to other areas of attraction such as bugis, arab street, orchard road, clark quay... and itself is a nice place to discover. in brief, we were happy with bunc and our stay. recommended for other visitors.
amazing stay in singapore”
it's my third times staying at bunc@radius little India. its quite near from Bugis MRT station. and also there's a bus stop near the hostel. you can reach the hostel around 30 mins from airport by MRT. The staff is very attentive and friendly. they even offer me cupcakes for free. there's a lift at the hostel. The room is very clean and comfy and spacious enough. Breakfast was good enough even its just bread and cereal. I very recommend this hostel :)
Comfy with good location”
The hostel although seems to be out of the center is in a very good location because it is 5minute walk from the mrt which means you can get everywhere in Singapore on the very good tube network. Also being in little India there are lots of cheap food options and street food so you can also eat like a king. The hostel itself is very nice. Although still bunk beds they are more substantial and you do feel like your in your own space. There are also good facilities, in each bunk there is a plug and a light, also the breakfast is good although very busy. you have an option of toast or cereal, tea and (terrible packet) coffee and milk! My only criticism is that they made it hard for me to extend my stay because I had to book again on Agoda and therefore meant a room change which was annoying and inconvenient. Shower 8/10 Wifi 6/10 (although good in common areas it wasn't so good in my room)
Great comfort, great value for the money”
I stayed at Bunc@Radius Clarke Quay previously, but this time I tried staying at Little India and I think it's better! The building was bigger, so it was more spacious. And I also like that they have a big and more than one common room, so good to spend time there. As usual, the cleanliness was top notch and I was really satisfied. I got a really good night sleep and will definitely stay at Bunc@Radius again in the future.
I arrived on a Friday night in Singapore and made my way to Bunc by MRT, stopping at Bugis Station. To be honest, walking there through Little India, i was very skeptical at all the reviews i read beforehand. The hostels around looked run down and quite dodgy. And the walk there alone at 9pm was a little bit scary. But when i got there, i was pleasantly surprised. The lobby gave a good vibe, and i was welcomed warmly by the staff. First impression : great! Went to my room and bed right after and found it to be nice, and most importantly, clean. The toilets/bath area is nice and clean as well. Given, do not expect creature luxuries here. But by most accounts, a great experience i would recommend. Just remember to bring a padlock for the locker provided!
Great Place, Great Staff”
Bunc Hostel is a great to stay.Unlike most hostels it doesn't have a confined feel. The lobby is big and it gives you a chance to come out of your room and hang around. The 3rd floor has a nice seating area as well. The staffs are friendly and helpful. Jun was very accommodating and helped me in getting the bed size I needed. I would definitely come back again to Bunc Hostel.
First class hostel but not-so-good location”
except for the hostel location, which is a bit far from the nearest little india mrt station (about 10 mins walking distance, unless you are taking buses, there are several bus stations nearby), everything else is good. clean rooms, toilets, bathrooms, good customer service, etc. and it is quite cheap too!! note: there is a mrt station just outside bunc hostel under construction, i bet travelling would be much easier after the mrt station is constructed.
Very friendly staffs and unique hotel design”
me & my hubbie choose bunc because they have double bed. the staffs are very friendly and helpful, you can even have a little chitchat with them. the hotel design is very unique, industrial minimalist type design in black-gray-white color scheme, makes it feel like you stay in more expensive hotel, and not in hostel. the bathrooms is very clean, but the shower is only use curtain instead of door, and heavy wind from the fan usually blow the curtain open. however, the internet/wi-fi is very bad, the signal is very weak even my iphone couldn't detect it, very slow and disconnecting again and again. not suitable for business traveller.
Bunc@Radius Hostel is great!”
Bunc@Radius Little India is a little walk from the nearest MRT station. But nonetheless, the staff that greeted me in the reception desk was very kind and nice. Though I was quite shocked to find that the dormitory rooms are shared by males and females. The linen and pillows are great considering the price range of Bunc@Radius.
if you're at the bunc, you're always in good hand”
i'm so happy and thankful to this bunc hostel... i booked it for my wife.. she said it's very clean and comfortable and secure. the staff were so helpful and very friendly. easy access to mrt, safe location... a lot of shopping malls... and convenient to anywhere. thank you bunc hostel for taking care of my wife and is safe to stay. i'll see you when i visit there.
