Superb Hostel
Ranked #161 of 241 Specialty Lodging in Singapore
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Have stayed here several times as you will not find a better location to see Singapore.
The Budget price reflects the size of the rooms, very tiny with little room to move, also the walls are paper-thin, so you can hear every word from the neighbouring room (provided you understand the language). Wash-and Shower-facilities are what you have to expect from a budget hostel. Upstairs is a small common area with 2 chairs for making Tea or Coffee, fortunately there were not too many guests to share the 2 chairs with. Internet access is free!
The owner, Ronnie,and his mum are extremely helpful and are always around if you need help.

I stayed at Superb Hostel in late May for the Singapore Half Marathon. The location of this hostel was superb for that as well as for partying around the Arab district of Singapore. The owner is incredibly enthusiastic and also helpful.

The accommodations were small and the walls of the rooms were thin. Washing facilities were average: clean but small. Hot water only on the third floor

The hostel is nicely located, about 10 minutes walk away from the MRT station and Bugis Junction. Just across the street is a 7-eleven store and a few Indian Muslim restaurants. Further down on the other side of the street, sits two rows of tiny bars where shisha is available.

Rooms are as advertised, small, but clean. I feel it is more suitable for solo travelers looking for a quick stay. A warning that walls are extremely thin and may not be suitable for light sleepers as you can hear everything around you, including the traffic outside. Other than that it is a good stay for the price.

We booked online for 4 nights and must pay total amount once we arrived in the hostel though we got a little discount.The room with bunk bed for 3 and i got the upper bed with a problem to drag myself up because the opening of the barrier is too small for me. The owner, the lady and the sons were helpful. When i lost my medium towel they gave me 2 big towels. The location is nice. Near some halal eating places like Padang restaurant, nasi Briyani, and close enough to Bugis and Little India.

Room Tip: Choose the room on the 2nd floor to avoid noises from the street

The hotle is located in Bugis, near a large mosque. So it's not difficult to find even you are first time to singapore. However, its single room is only a single 'hole'. It's not a room with a ceiling. Sometimes it is a little bit noisy since people use mobilephone, cough, talk...The host is helpful and kind heart

However, good deal for 70 Singapore dollars for two.

I would seriously think twice about staying here. It is 55 dollars for a tiny single room and the walls do not go to ceiling so its like a dorm basically with no privacy and you can hear everything from 10 rooms like cells!

Singapore is not cheap bit you can do better than this. The little old lady is sweet enough but that doesnt make up for the poor rooms.

The shared bathroom is a joke too, you have to walk through one toilet to get to another one so no privacy. The person who owns this place is clearly greedy trying to maximise profit while not caring about comfort.
