A nice stop in Singapore. We stayed in a 8 (I think?) person room. This wasn't an issue until a guy started snoring so loud I was pretty sure at one point he was having a seizure.. Other than that, it was a good stay. Friendly staff, clean place.

Stayed in the two-bed room. It was spartan but comfortable enough and quite clean. The bathroom was also clean which was nice as I usually find that's where the trouble is. Didn't get to try breakfast as I was out since very early. Staff was helpful when we had questions. Location was good, very close to the MRT station.

Singapore's "Hive" backpacker hostel is safe, clean and one of the cheapest places to stay in this expensive city state. The young staff are extremely kind and helpful. With the all important air conditioning, the dormitories can get pretty chilly at night, so it might be sensible to bring your own sleeping bag liner. You also need to bring your... More

Allthough situated far away from Singapore City I have only positive to tell about "The Hive" And with only 15 minutes to Little India or 2-300 meters from the Metro it should not keep you from booking with this compfy and very cheap hostel (SGD 17,85 per night including "breakfast" and FREE coffee whenever you like) WiFi is working spotless…...

Situated just outside the city, this hostel is within 200m of the MTR underground train network which can take you anywhere in Singapore. The hostel is clean, offers both private double rooms to 10 bed mixed dorm rooms. I've experienced both and both are clean. The rooms are standard bunkbeds, the lower beds have a lot of head room which... More

This is my first time at The Hive. Stayed 3 nights there. I booked private room for 2. The room is separate from the main building but very secure since they use key card to access the door and the room as well. Clean & nice. Free breakfast with bread, jam, milk, tea, coffee but you must prepare and clean... More

The Hive has a really cool vibe. It is pleasantly decorated with a dark and yellow colour scheme and one section of wall in the large common room is dedicated to guest commentary. In many ways its what you expect from a backpacker hostel; reasonably priced, clean, extremely friendly, complimentary tea and coffee and standard but welcome breakfast. As a... More

This place is very cheap. The place is clean too. Near attraction place like little India. Only 300m from MRT station. I call this place a saviour when you only have limited trip budget. I greatly recommended this place.

We stayed in The Hive for 2 nights. Because it was really too expensive to book a private room, we decided to stay in a dorm with ten other people. It was ok, the room was clean with aircon and the breakfast was basic but good. The bathrooms were quite clean, but they didn't have any space to hang or... More
