it was my first time to visit Singapore for short trip and I do really enjoy it. The rooms are clean and shower also. the staff are super friendly and informative special thanks to Yong Jie, Abhee and Hui Qing. I like the simple breakfast and the blackboard which is provided in the lobby area where the guest could right... More

The staff was superfriendly, very organised in explaining everything and so helpful (when we couldn't get the TV to work or when we wanted to know where to take a bus)! Very clean rooms and showers, fast wifi, metro station nearby and free breakfast (with milk and peanutbutter!). We enjoyed our stay and are impressed by the organization, first time... More

I worked in Singapore for seven months at an English language school, and stayed at this hostel for six of those months. The staff are friendly, the rate is cheap (Singapore is notoriously expensive for accomodation), and the free western style breakfast is available. Computers with internet are free, the television room has video games, and you can also do... More

The Hive is pretty well set up - cool common room and decent bathroom setup and ok but crowded large dorm rooms. However, be aware that this isn't your typical hostel filled with young travelers. In my dorm room, ~50% of guests were men well past 40, many of whom appeared to have been living in the dorm for a... More

The rooms are just enough for sleeping, I just find it a little hassle crossing doors going to the kitchen and common area. The front desk guys are cute! :) Close to hospital and kinda close to MTR station. Still have to walk 5-10 minutes. Close to Mustafa Center. Looks safe but the most common attractions are quite far. Overall,... More

I stayed here for one night on a 22 hour stopover. It seems like most accommodation in Singapore is expensive. This hostel was the cheapest that I could find in a hurry and I was quite pleased with it. It was easily enough to get to via train from the airport (the hostel provided good directions on their website). The... More

There was breakfast included, good wifi and free coffee all day long. Probably one of the best hostels i have been in south east asia. If i ever go back to singapore, i know were... More
