Bunc Hostel Apr 10, 2017
Bunc Hostel is one of the institutions of hostel world in Singapore. Most of the places wish that they can come to the standards and quality that Bunc offers. Nested in Little India, on the border with Arab quarters the building is part of the row-buildings which are iconic for old Singapore. Transportation from and to the hostel is very easy and it requires only a bit of effort (asking drivers or checking the map). Singapore is famous for their transit system, and you can catch bus to Malaysia, local city bus or metro in just couple hundred meters from the hostel.

First thing you will encounter is a great organization and well-designed gathering area. Bottom floor serves as reception, hanging out place and breakfast area.

Reception is modern, they will give you electronic keys for your room and the bathroom doors. Stuff is very nice and speaks great English. You can rent towels from the reception for some small amount. Also, you can get power plugs that allow your plug to get into the socket. Singapore is one of those countries that has a bit of weird plugs for power. Internet is pretty good and you can use it everywhere in the hostel. Breakfast is served next to the large table and it is a bit of a squeeze area. Table can easily fit 30 people, but there is little space on the side for the people to mingle or move around. Breakfast is pretty basic and unimaginative. Pretty much some bread, spreads, coffee and tea. Coffee is one of those bagged things mixed with everything, so you can like it or leave it…

I was staying on the second floor. You can get there by the elevator or by the side stairs. Bedrooms are really well made. Definitely designed for the hostel type staying, kind of half capsules style, but with the beds that are uncommonly wide and nice. I was very surprised with the quality of the bed. Every bed has its own power plug, light and a bit of the ledge where you can put your stuff. Locker is under the bed and it is nice, large and sturdy. Bring your own lock, or buy one in the local store. That will assure that no one else has the lock key…

Bathroom was huge. Long passage way, filled with showers and bathrooms, with the large sink and the mirror for those that like you look at themselves. It was well maintained and it had plentiful hot water.

Also on the second floor there are two large terraces. One is connected with the community kitchen where you can make and preserve your food. There are some lockers where you can leave your extra food. Everything is well made and well equipped. On the first terrace you’ll find lots of chairs and tables. On the second terrace, there are many bean bags, a piano… and TV, projector and generally relaxing vibe.

Very good place to stay. Warmly recommended to everyone, especially unexperienced travelers.
