I have hesitated long to write this review as I always found Ronnie, the owner, very helpful. However I feel that prospective visitors need to know what to expect. Thinking back to our last stay in June, I still get nightmares. The room, if you want to call it that, was just the length of the bed. Next to it...

Staff (Alan) was very helpful. Had tickets at reduced rates for some attractions (gardens by the bay). Very good on directions & tips. The hostel is very clean. Wifi is excellent. Location is good too, close to subway & pretty central. Close to a lot of restaurants & pubs. It's pretty quiet too (apart from morning prayer from mosque across...

I have booked a room for my brother here in Superb Hostel. Upon calling their contact number, the person-in-charge was warm in answering my questions. He was prompt in replying to my emails and even sent me the complete instructions on how to go to their place. As per my brother, he enjoyed his stay there. We were blessed in...

We had quite the humbling experience here lol! We came to drop off the luggage early because check in is only at 2 pm and had to pay $10 for storage or $10 to get a room immediately which was re ridiculous and we obviously opted for the early room. They even charged $2 to use their swing at the...

We stayed here one night- thank god. We aren't picky we've always stayed in hostels but the room is tiny, room for one double mattress and for two backpacks on the floor. The mattress is on the ground that is covered with ants. The hostel did not feel very clean. Not very accomodating for early check ins or late check...

Good location in the city district with clean rooms. Easy transportation as the Bugis MRT is nearby and near bus stops. Staffs are very helpful and friendly. I stayed 5 days and I really enjoyed staying there.

Location was nice. The rooms are small but comfortable. The shared bathrooms were always clean and the location was great. BUT - They have these crazy alarms on the doors which go off if the door is left open for a few seconds. I don't know if I was particularly unlucky with my neighbors, maybe they were just all a...

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.
