I’ll start with the only positive things about this hostel. The workers are absolutely lovely and very helpful and always seems to be working. The breakfast is also very good; cereal, toast and eggs. The final positive is the free laundry, this was great. What...More

We stayed here as we were looking for somewhere decent to sleep in during an overnight layover at Singapore. The location is great and access is no problem. We arrived late so there was nobody at the reception so we had to “self-check in” which...More

The toilet was not cleaned once during my entire stay. The toilet was covered in human waste for three days. I was physically sick at the state of the facilities. There was ants everywhere. Breakfast was a shambles. Only good thing was the location.

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! Less

I think so, because we also had a child companion with us and her mother also shared her bed with her son. Call them, direct booking is cheaper.

Hi, thank you for writing. Unfortunately, we do not have any private rooms. However, you can book the whole 6 bed dorm for $150 per night.
