We stayed at this hostel one night in Singapore - and it was clean but not good. Se stayed at a private room - but the room did not seem to be private at all. There seem to be just a thin piece of wood to the room beside - so we could hear everything. Meanwhile they charged everything. If... More

Superb Hub is like what its name stated, superb. It is clean & comfortable enough. I went with my cousin sister for Christmas shopping & we had a room with double decker bed. It is very small with a dressing table. Sort of like we can stand on our bed n our room door. That constraint like Hong Kong. Only... More

According to the name of the hostel it had quit a name to live up to "Superb Hostel". Maybe we missed to superb side of the hub, cause we stayed only one night there. We arrived in the evening from Mersing Malaysia and planed to spend a few days in Singapore. So we heard about the place from a French... More

Before writing reviewing, it's important to mention that Singapore is a completely different kettle of fish to the rest of South East Asia both in terms of room size and price. So yes the rooms at Superb Hostel are small, but there is a lot to keep you busy in Singapore, so the likelihood is that you will only be... More

I stayed there during my Malaysia and Singapore trip. The Hotel is conveniently located from major attractions of the city. The Service is not so good but location compensates for it. In an all you can stay there if you want no frills hotel with value for money.

We stayed there in 2008 and the place was a gem. Today, it is very much ran down (e.g. damp on the walls) and the rooms are separated by a very thin wall that does not even go up to the roof, so you can hear the noise from the neighbors. In addition, construction work is being done in the... More

My friend and I checked in here after we arrived in Singapore at about 1am. Mr Tang checked us in as soon as we arrived and he was very friendly. He gave us lots of advice about the places to eat and see nearby. Our room was a twin room. It was pretty small, but had everything we needed -... More

The Hostel / Hotel is perfectly located in the "Arabic" part of the city. Nice bars and restaurants are just around the corner. I booked a single room for 50 S$ per night. After arriving there I recognized that the single room is a very small chamber with walls only up to 2 meters and not till the roof. It... More

Staying in Kampong Glam

Neighborhood Profile
Kampong Glam
This traditionally Malay enclave of Singapore offers an alluring array of shops, cafes, and bars. A walk down Haji Lane offers quirky shopping, while one block over, Arab Street is a treasure trove of brightly colored fabrics, clothing, and Turkish rugs. Stop for a leisurely coffee or cocktail and watch local kids play traditional games along the lane. Also home to the Malay Heritage Center and one of Singapore’s most prominent mosques (Sultan Mosque), Kampong Glam is a must-visit for a tantalizing taste of Malay life in this city.
