It has been my reasonable decision in terms of choosing to stay at The Hive where I had been served for 4 nights in the comfortable conditions of prices, facilities and helpfulnesses. Thanks to The Hive.

Receptionist abhee was the most professional receptionist I've ever met. She is always helpful, cheerful & mindful of the needs of my friends & I. Emails sent to THSH will be replied less than 24 hours! Room was OK. Double decker bed. Air-conditioning was good enough. Room was safe; only guest(s) with access card could enter a specific room.

Stuffs were kind and helpful, breakfast have been basic (cereals, toast,...), OK beds, they cloud be cleaned more often. On my 3days stay rooms and common places haven't been clean even once. Otherwise I was happy with my stay.

Stayed five nights. What I liked: - Female dorm is on the ground floor (don't have to drag heavy luggage up stairs), is fairly spacious and has high ceiling - Not one but two UNIVERSAL electrical points/outlets at every bed - Bunk bed is sturdy and doesn't creak! - Free breakfast is often available past stated hours - Common area...

We stayed 1 night in this hostel. It is nice that the hostel offers many free services like laundry and breakfast but the hostel itself looks a bit run down and sloppy. The room that I stayed was air conditioned but it was so hot in the corridor outside our room. The showers and toilets are separated and the size... More

We checked in the morning, and after preparing to go for a whole day trip within the city, we left. As we came back by 12 midnight, our bags were already placed on other beds. And on the beds where our baggage used to lie, people were already asleep, occupying the bed that we booked and expected to sleep on... More

Booked a room using email and responded promptly by their staff. The room i stayed in located in a different-separated building with the receptionist therefore in order to get the free breakfast and to use other hotel facilities i must first get out to the street and head back to the main building. Luckily it never rain during my stay... More

We spent two weeks here, and the stay was great. Slept very well here. Friendly and helpful staff, and good vibes among the other people staying there. Breakfast is a plus, and free coffee all day too. The aircon in the room and the lobby that was freezing sometimes, and a girl at our room got a cold, but that... More

Established since December 2004, The Hive is one of the pioneer hostels in Singapore. We enjoyed a long history of providing our guests with affordable accommodation and excellent service. With such a rich history behind us, there is only one characteristic about us: CHANGE. The Hive is always improving to provide better for our guests and their feedbacks are our best testimonials. Located in the centre of Singapore, we are every reason a traveller should stay with us. Boon Keng MRT Station, which is just less than five minutes away from our hostel, has a direct train to most tourist attractions. We have a more welcoming atmosphere, a big communal lounge great for interaction, cable channels offering The Premier League, Champions League, F1, tennis - something the hotels are lacking. Surely the next best alternative to hotels??? The Hive is also the place for a family/group stay-over. Groupacking...why travel in pairs when it's much more fun in groups? Start packing for your next Groupacking trip! ... more   less
