For $15 you get a bed in a big room (12 bed mixed dorm), A/C from 6pm-noon, hot showers, clean bathrooms, a lot of sinks/mirrors, awesome coffee + tea all day, the tap water is healthy!, a fridge, big...

the location is convenient and close enough to the city with easy access to an MRT station. Room was comfortable with locker, bring your own locks for added security. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful.

I got a good service, the staff is friendly, the room and bathroom is clean, and have a good location. the unfortunate thing is only the building is separately from the main building (lobby) and you need to go through the toilet everytime you went to lobby, eventhough the toilet is clean but just not common for me.

We had unlimited toast and milk every morning. The bathroom needs more hanger to hang towels and clothes. The cleanliness was ok. Overall, our experience there was nice. We are happy and satisfied customers.

Hey guys, this hostel was not very good. The room prizes are cheap and the staff are very friendly and helpful. There are heaps of negatives though. They turn off the aircon during the day. The rooms turn into saunas. The Internet is very bad. There is barely any connection in the rooms. Simply opening a website can take several... More

Welcoming and warm, the staff the at The Hive Singapore Hostel was nice. Working a lot on the computer, I also liked the common area where we had enough space to to work in peace (quiet at night after 10pm)

The place is clean. I never complain whenever I'm here. You can make a reservation without downpayment. Employees of this hostel are accommodating. The place is very unique, you can access the kitchen. Free wifi with good connection, near train station, kid friendly. I would definitely recommend this to my friends
