We stayed in a mixed dorm, which was ok. The internet was bad though, and we couldn't really use it in the room.. Or in the lobby. The bathroom was ok, and the breakfast was better then most hostel breakfasts, as they offered both toasts and cereal with milk. The room was so cold! The staff turns on the A/C... More

Great location near little India & not too far from MRT. Nice to have breakfast included. Friendly & helpful staff and a comfortable sleep. The cleanliness could be improved a little but most of the mess was due to other guests. It is a little on the high side but the location makes up for it. Wifi very slow and... More

The staffs are very friendly and helpful especially Abhee, Ifa, Ethan. They always smile sweetly and are there to help you. The laundry and breakfast is free which is great. The only annoying thing during my stay was the presence of a man, may be he was a guest, who used to sit outside and smoke all the time. This... More

This place is lovely, super close to little india, and irab street. Also super close to the MRT line so its easy to get to and from. Rooms are clean, TV room is nice and the worker bees were super nice and helpful.Plus if your a long haul kind of traveler the free night time laundry is priceless.

I stayed here for 2 nights. The room was clean. But dark because there is no windows. The bed is quiet comfy. The bath room is mixed for man and woman. The breakfast is standard, and they also provide microwave and fridge. The staffs were friendly and helpful. This hostel location is near to Boon Keng MRT Station.

Very happy with my stay at the Hive. Good value, good service and a convenient location. Everything that you need for a short trip to Singapore. Stayed in the dorm and had no problems at all. The dorm and the bathrooms were spotlessly clean.

The Hive was a pretty decent option for Singapore, taking into account the cost, location, facilities & access to public transportation. The facilities were clean & secure, and the hostel is located a short walk away from an LRT station, which really are the primary things I look for in a hostel. All in all, a satisfying stay.

Singapore is a good bit more expensive than other countries in SE Asia. While The Hive would be dearer than the average hostel in Thailand etc it is 1 of the cheapest in Singapore. In fact I believe it had the cheapest room when I browsed the various hostel sites. In this case cheapest does not mean dirty or bad... More
