I've been there several times. It has great location, few mins walk to Bugis Street and around sightseeing. The services are good. Staffs are so friendly and enthusiasm. Breakfast is fine and facilities are quite clean

This was my second time staying at this place. I've noticed quite a few changes since my last stay in 2019. The rooms themselves were nice and still the same. It's a nice sized space to spread your things with a comfy bed, good bedding but the pillows could be firmer. There's a safe for your valuables in the room and a wall socket to charge your handphone. I appreciated how quiet everyone in my room was so I had no problems sleeping.

But the toilets/showers could use some updating and definitely more attention paid to cleaning as well. So many people are sharing the bathrooms and it doesn't have proper ventilation so it's hot in there.

As for location, my Singaporean friend was late meeting me at the hostel as she had a hard time finding the property as it’s on a pedestrianized road. But the hostel is just a few minutes walk from Bugis MRT making it very convenient to get around. And there's a shopping mall at the Bugis Junction, if you need something.

The breakfast is not bad.

It was pretty nice. The bed was comfortable and the room was air conditioned throughout. There was a nice area outside and inside where you could do some work if you were a nomad (good aesthetic) They accommodated my check in and out times which was nice. The location was fantastic especially if you want to step out into bustling energy during the day and at night. The area offers the greatest cuisines of Singapore and they’re not afraid to prove it to you. Overall pretty nice place.

I got good experience for 2 nights here. Clean room and nice smell with air-conditioning all the time. Rest/bathrooms are clean, quite busy in early morning because many people use, but free in rest of day, not only one, there several ones, so you don't need worry about being in "traffic jam" =)) . Free breakfast is a plus, fried rice impressed me.

Right at the center so moving around is very convenient, easy to get bus and MRT, Cube is right at food street so you can enjoy many cuisines here. Busy street at night but beautiful in the morning.

Location wise this capsule hotel is great. We got on and off and Bugis to get around town and also caught the train to and from Changi airport. The other bonus items were the capsules are a great size not quite as modern as japans but still acceptable. The issues we found were the washing machine and dryer times are not aligned with the money you put in so ur washing is held ransom until u speak to someone from reception to unlock the machine. We stayed for around ten days and to get a new set of slippers felt like we asked for the ladies newborn child! The noise can be excessive with inconsiderate guests banging doors etc so bring earplugs! Also the bathrooms need to be cleaned more frequently as they always have wet foot towels and smell of mould. The other good thing is there are plenty of places to eat nearby.

Location was good in terms of getting from the airport to the hostel. It’s a relatively short walk from the MRT stop. The area is ‘Little Arab Town’ and it has lots of bars and food places. Around the corner is an amazing Mexican called Huevos. Definitely try this out.
The hostel itself is average. The beds were clean and comfy. The showers and toilets are shared and do not get cleaned every day (every3/4 day) whilst I was there it got cleaned once (I was there for 6 days). With lots of people using them they get quite messy and dirty so remember to bring flipflops as you’ll definitely not want to stand there bare foot. The breakfast is basic, toast with butter, jam or Nutella. There are some noddles and eggs and some 2 different fruits so it’s quite limited.
You can refill your water bottle which is good.
The street that the hostel is located gets very loud at night and with lots of people in the room the door is always opening and closing through the night. Bring ear plugs.
Please note that the hostel is right next to the golden mosque so the call the prayer is very loud everyday at around 5.30am. If you’re sleeping at the front you will wake up!
Over all the stay was ok, shame that the bathrooms don’t get cleaned everyday as they should.

Stayed here for 3 nights; got a lower bunk bed in a mixed dormitory room. Good breakfast included - has rice/noodles, fruits, cereals & omelette station on top of the bread, coffee & tea included. Clean dorm rooms, nice common areas. Free water refill. The only I saw is that common toilets should be cleaned more often that usual. Still had a lovely stay, definitely a value for money!

Pleasant stay. Stayed for four nights. Quite spacious for a capsule. Chose a lower bunk. Guests are mindful to keep toilet as clean and dry as possible. Best part is toilet is a sepate room by itself not like shared cubicles. So feel safe and privacy is ensured esp for female guests. Breakfast was simple and filling ie cereals, boiled eggs, noodles, fruits , toast, coffee and tea. Staff are approachable and friendly. Good experience. No doubt, will stay again.

We stayed at Cube Boutique Capsule from 30-01. There were a lot of problems during our stay. The aircondition was destroyed and kept dripping all the time. There were someone to fix it there the first day, but it did not work. The dripping-sound was there every other second the whole time. This resulted in no sleep. We asked to change room 4 times during the 2 days, but the Hotel kept telling us it was fully booked. At 5 in the morning 1 januar they finally gave us another room, but unfortunaly we had to go to the AirPort at 8, so there was really no sleep.

There were also other problems with the bed, and the capsule above us made really loud noise each time the guests in the upper part moved. This also contributed to minimal sleep. We contacted the reseption multiple times without any help.

Because of this, we feel that our trip to Singapore got destroyed. We are really disapointed that our trip got ruined because of the bad condition of the room and the service at the Hotel. There were also very poor cleaning, the bathrooms was nasty, and the floor on the Hotel-room was very dirty.

Never go here.

Unlike most travellers that I assume will stay for 1 or 2 nights, I decided to book a room for 7 nights. Overall, a pleasant experience - loved that the air con was always on and provided relief from the sweltering heat at times. Bed was very comfortable, amenities were clean and breakfast was always filling. Close enough to MRT to catch a train/bus and loved the fact it was located along a street night market - no shortage of places to go for a quick bite. The staff were also very nice. Overall exceeded my expectations and a great place to stay at.

I'm sorry but I don't know if they have private rooms. I never saw any other rooms expect for the women's dorm. You'll need to check with them.
