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

Stayed for 3 nights on 6-female dorm. PROs (1) staffs are friendly and accommodating (2) very near Boon Keng MRT station and one SBS bus transit station (3) free breakfast from 7:30-10:30 (4) free wifi with strong signal (since my room is in the 1st floor near the reception area). My complaints are: (1) AC in our room is so... More

The receptionists are very helpful and polite. The place is quite close to the MRT station. Clean bath rooms. The entertainment room is quite good. I will be back to this hostel next time in Singapore. Thumbs up guys!

Stayed here for 3 days (paid for 4 nights to reserve a bed during my late check-in- they weren't full when I checked-in so I was surprised they didn't deduct the 1 night fee unlike in other hostels). The signage was dull. Even cab drivers had hard time finding the place unless you tell them it's located in the intersection... More

We stayed at the Hive Backpackers Hostel in Singapore for 3 nights and well, to be honest, do not expect more than what you pay for ! We stayed in a dorm, it was all right (12 beds in the room) and luckily it had A/C. To me there is not enough showers (2 for 12 people) but they are... More

Stayed here recently (May 5) for 2 nights. The location is easy to find since it is along the road and only a few minutes walk from Boon Keng MRT station. Lots of cheap places to eat nearby even at night. Traveled with my family (3 members) and we stayed in a 4 bedded private room with window- Rose. There... More
