For weekends and public holidays, the first hour is free just like weekdays, however subsequent hours will be charged a flat entry fee of $2.50.

10 seconds after stepping into Mustafa, you suddenly realize you need to have all the things you didn't know you need, and that's where you start resisting the siren call of cheap perfume, bags, and electronics.
That's where Mustafa Centre's free first hour of parking comes in handy. Sure, it's free for awhile, but after that paying $1 per subsequent half hour is no fun. Try to get in and out within an hour, or you're there forever.
