Stayed in a mixed dorm with my brother and sister along with 5 other males. Breakfast is free and a lounge with computer and internet connection and other entertainment stuff is provided. Across the street is the Boon Keng Station with beautiful scenery along the way.

A good place to sleep. A little bit crowded, like a hive :) and a little bit noisy. However it's quite windy/cold in the bedrooms so beware not to catch a cold. Also You may order an airport shuttle here.

Quaint restaurant tucked away in an unlikely strip mall. It was the locale for a first date. The staff was friendly, accommodating, attentive and knowledgeable. The food was good, interesting even... Not quite Indian, not quite Chinese.... I guess the it would be apt to deem it Nepalese :) We enjoyed our meal and had lots of leftovers. All in...

I came and spent 3 nights with my family of 4 children. We felt it was quite convenient, since the receptionists are friendly and helpful. We slept in a room of four bunk beds, and my family loved it. The facilities are quite clean and well maintained. It's about 300 meters from MRT Boon Keng Station. It's just since the...

The hostel was clean and comfy even though I was staying in a mixed dormitary, I felt safe. The bathroom & showers were fine too and they had free usage of the washing machine and dryer from 7 pm till 7 am. The receptionist was such a darling and helped a lot in providing us in any necessities needed. Oh!...

Good location, busy place so good to meet people. Wifi worked throughout the building but was dodgy sometimes. Free breakfast is nice start to the day. Good sized dorms with comfy beds and sockets next to each. Of the shared bathrooms the ones upstairs in the building adjacent to reception, one shower light was broke so too dark to use...

I came this hostel in May. Really I was satisfied and comfortable when I stayed. I love decoration. It was lovely, convenient and cleaned. Staff was very friendly, helpful. Just 1 thing, this hostel didn't have much restaurants around there.

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
