Staycation in Singapore – Bunc Hostel x Zouk

Looking for a suitable place to your staycation?

Wishing to get away from work for awhile – to just let loose and hang out with your best buds?

The usual procedures to planning a staycation would be as such
1) Finding your “dream” hotel that fits your budget (Usually takes up to 1 week with endless possibilities – how pretty does the room look? what other facilities are there?)
2) Grabbing a few of your best girlfriends to join you on the staycation
3) Planning the feasibility of it, how much per person etc.
4) Planning of what to do during the staycation, where to go and what to do.

We say.. scrape that!

Druther Bike Rental

Although we’re located in between 2 convenient MRT stations, to some of us, a 10 mins walk may still be a little too far off.

I believe our newest addition is going to help you and make your trip around Singapore way more convenient and efficient!!
Druthers Bike Rental is providing bicycle rental to everyone out there!! From a 10mins walk to a 2 mins cycle, you save a lot of time and energy for other activities while you’re in Singapore!!

What are the awesome benefits of renting a Druther’s bicycle?

1. Druther’s bicycles are foldable. 


See here! The bicycle on the right is how it looks after it’s folded! Convenient and light! Definitely a plus!!
Of couse, when it’s foldable …. you can:

2. Bring in the MRT and Shopping Malls!

Bicycle in the train!
