Liked: The Mitraa is a very comfortable place to stay at Singapore. Rooms have good AC although not very spacious. For breakfast you can have all the toasts you want and fruits.

Disliked: The area where it is located (Little India) is not that great and it can be a bit far-fetched to get to the hostel, but from there you have the train near or you can just walk to the rest of the city.

Liked: Staff extremely friendly and helpful - they really couldn't do enough for you. Great location - located at the end of Little India. 5 minutes from the metro (this is the purple line so very convenient for China Town and harbour bay).

Disliked: Aesthetically, not the best, but if you are just using the hostel as a place to merely sleep then it's ideal. I would look else if you want a luxury stay.

Liked: Individual locking lockers for each bed. Beds were wide and comfortable. Shared bathrooms kept clean. Staff was very helpful.

Disliked: Breakfast was a little sparse. Small common area made it tough to mingle and eat breakfast. A bit far from the metro and places to eat.

Liked: It was in a great location, 2 minute walk to MRT station which we used to get everywhere. Staff were very friendly and helpful telling us where was good for food markets, how to get around. Close walk to lavender street food market which was great. Hostel was clean and they were always cleaning daily. Basic but good breakfast every morning with fruit toast and eggs which was good.

Disliked: No atmosphere if you are wanting to socialise and seemed to be a lot of business/local men staying there which was at times odd.

29 January 2014 Brian would recommend this property

Liked: The property was clean and relatively quiet. The provided breakfast of toast, hard boiled eggs, and fruit was a great bonus. The rooms have comfortable beds and, more importantly, are air conditioned! The WiFi was excellent in both my room and the common area. Angel and the rest of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful in helping me make my plans for the day and my next destinations.

Disliked: The beds are slightly creaky. So, when you or one of your roommates move, you can hear them. The location is not particularly close to any attractions, but the train is very close and convenient. The showers/toilets are done in the SE Asian-style where the toilet and shower together, which makes the toilets wet pretty much all the time. Honestly, you get used to it and it did not bother me, but other people may not like it.

Liked: Great value for Singapore. The staff was friendly and helpful and made Singapore a lot easier to navigate. Individual locking lockers were provided, which was nice. Bathrooms were fine and kept clean. Beds were wide. Breakfast was sufficient - eggs, toast, peanut butter.

Disliked: Rooms were small - there wasn't any room unless things were in your locker. A bit far from the MRT (10 minutes walk), although area safe. Food options were also at least 10-15 minute walk.

Liked: Very close to MRT Farrer Park and bus stop only 5 minutes. Just walking around 10 minutes to Mustafa Shopping Centre . Kindly staff specially Sebastian, thanks for your help and warm welcome. Next door there are mini market and pizza shop. Lucky am I got the private room for 2 person with huge bed, near with the bathroom and the kitchen on the lower floor. Recommended

Disliked: The worst is only the location not close to food court, usually every MRT have food court on lower ground or any resto or cafe. But in race Court Road only near "Eating house" and don't have alternative menu.

03 June 2013 Mark Alexis would recommend this property

Liked: It was practically near everything you need to see and do. Walk straight the road and there goes the MRT which is linked to all the places you need to see and do in Singapore. To the left and just around the corner is the Lavender Hawker Center which offers one of the best and cheapest foods in Singapore. And walk a little further over the Serangoon Road you'll find the City Square Mall, Mustafa Center and Little India. It's just so convenient.

Disliked: Most of the things are for sale if not rented. LOL. I had to pay $1 SGD for my towel. Anyway, i don't really mind at all. I just had to write something. :)

Liked: This place came recommended by a friend and I'm really glad i stayed here. I was tavelling alone, and it was my first time in Singapore, and at the end of the day, it felt like I was coming home.Lovely common area, great location and Friedly hostelmates. Staff were all very nice, especially Sebastian who works at the counter (he had some great tips for places to eat and socialise).

Disliked: Laura left no negative feedback.
