Just like many of my peers, I am an avid fan of staycations! Its always good for one self to take a break from the daily hustle and bustle.. and when time does not permit, a staycation is always the next best thing for a mini getaway~
Just that this time round, my staycation is heaps different from the usual.. instead of the usual hotel experience, I was invited to experience Bunc@Radius – the luxuries of a boutique hotel incorporated with the culture of a hostel! With a total of 29 rooms and a maximum capacity of 275 people, Bunc@Radius accommodates from a range of backpackers whose priorities are to look for affordable beds, to hosting corporate and school events and even to locals who want to take a break and enjoy a staycation.
I looked as though I really am on vacation hey! (The luggage was actually filled w clothes for my Zouk flea~)
Bunc@Radius is a hybrid hostel that never compromises comfort, cleanliness, privacy, safety and above all, hospitality and fun.
We chose the deluxe Bunc – the bed is twice the size of the full-sized single, and is able to accommodate two people spaciously. Our room actually comes with in-room safe, built in Mini Fridge, in room bathroom & 37” TV. Wasn’t that pleased with the Android TV Box which was a pain to use especially when the wifi wasn’t working well, give me a good old cable TV anytime!
Yup, he just couldn’t resist making himself comfortable

Last warning bro..
I love travelling interstate when I was an undergraduate in Australia and because of budget constraints, I was either sleeping off my girlfriend’s couch or staying in YHA (a famous Backpacker hostels down under). Back then, I’ve always wondered if Singapore will ever have such a clean and safe haven for travelers on budget and I am really glad to know we are starting to have them popping up here. Due to my past “hipster” experience, it was easy for me to set some expectations for Bunc@Radius and I am pleased to say they were all easily met.
I didn’t like how we were on the ground floor and could hear all the external noise factors initially (our room was right beside the walkway/roads) but we were surprised to realize how quiet it was after 10pm. Cleanliness is definitely impressive here – bug resistance hygiene protectors and really clean toilets; I wouldn’t mind organizing a girls night out and staying at the Double Bunc Dorm Beds. If you calculate the price, it is definitely much cheaper than our good old chalet days :X One also need not worry about having any disrupted sleep as custom-made non-fluorescent anti-glare lights are installed in all rooms. Together with the personal lighting system by each bed, rest assured rest would not be interrupted by late check-ins, perfect for light sleepers like me ♥
