Great value for money”

Value, cleanliness,

We had a very nice stay at The Hive. Pros: The hostel was quite clean and spacious, for example, our dorm room had 4 bunk beds where it easily could have fit 8 bunk beds. The security was excellent and we always felt safe and protected here. The bathrooms did get dirty quickly and sometimes one of the toilets did not flush, but that is our only complaint in terms of cleanliness. The hostel provided breakfast of bread and jam and peanut butter, which is basic, but you could have unlimited amounts as well as unlimited tea and coffee during the day. The staff were not overly friendly but were helpful when requested. The hostel is set up very nice with a huge common area as well as a game/lounging area. Cons: The location is not ideal. While it is about a 5 minute walk from the Boon Keng MRT station, that station in on a line that requires at least one transfer to reach many destinations with the exception of Little India. There is not a lot of restaurants and shops in the immediate vicinity of The Hive, however you will find a great hawker stand about five minutes away with excellent, cheap food. As well, the wifi did not work in the rooms but worked fine in the common area. Overall this is a great hostel for budget travelers in Singapore. I would highly recommend it to future travelers.

Wonderful place”

Good value, friendly and flexible staff

It wasn't my first time to SG but first time in The Hive and this is the best hostel I ever stayed. My flight arrived around midnight but they said they would be waiting for us and they did, it's about 2am in the morning but the receptionist still came with a great smile. Really near to Boon Keng Mrt so easy to transport, also near Mustafa. A small negative point is just I couldn't connect to wifi in my room because the signal is so weak but it's fast in the lobby, and the breakfast is kinda poor. I do not expect too much with that room rate but it would be lovely if they had eggs, mayonnaise and salt like fews hostel I stay before. In general, everything is wonderful, clean bathroom, lockers inside the room and you don't need to deposit for your room keys :)

Not disappointed with this well-organized hostel”

internet, staff, Singapore's cheapest

My single room was a monk's cell -- a bed and a small table in a narrow room without even a hook. Towel are for rent. It was cheapest place I could find. I liked the staff and the location (near two train station and on bus routes and Little India is great). Okay the breakfast was extremely minimal even for a hostel. I used the laundry service – drying clothes was difficult. I rate the place high because it is a well-organized hostel.

Good value hostel”

Cheap priced hostel and good to stay for few days discovering singapore city. Rooms are small but if you only use it for sleeping it doest its thing. Bathrooms not so great and clean but once again you just have a quick shower and dont spend there long time anyways. Location is little bit out from central but merto station is really close so easy to go aroing city and also cheap option. Staff really friendly and helpful with any question you might have. Nice small free breakfast before going out for discovering city. All in all I would recommend for budget travellers. Good value for money.

great value for money!”

easy access everywhere, free tea and coffee, cheap good food stalls/restaurants closeby

The hostel was pretty easy to find and from there it was good access to shopping, sightseeing and activities. Breakfast was basic, free coffee and tea were available around the clock. The aircon was set a bit too cool but the staff fixed the problem as soon as notified. The only problem we had was check in, we had to wait hours to be able to do that although the hostel was almost empty (most of the other guests were able to check in as soon as they arrived) but we had to wait over an hour after the official check in time of 2pm and were never given any reason why. Other than that we enjoyed our stay at the Hive and will definitely stay there again. PS. Especially the indian food stalls/restaurants nearby sell awesome tasty food for 4-5 singapore dollars a meal!

We booked for 4 persons but they gave us room for 6! My kids enjoyed the DIY breakfast. Very friendly and hospitable staff. Clean room and bathroom. Cons: multi-race hostel, sometimes you will encounter guests in the lobby with not so nice smell. Actually it is common in Singapore. It is up to you on how you will adjust or adapt on the situation 😁

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! Nearest MRT Station, Boon Keng, is only around 120 meters away by foot. Bus stop Opposite Umar Tamil Language Centre (07249) is just outside THSH. 15 minutes walk away to Singapore’s first eco-mall to be integrated with a 49,000 sq ft urban park named City Green, City Square Mall & one of Singapore's 24-hour shopping malls on Syed Alwi Road in Little India, Mustafa Centre. One thing to be improved, cleanliness of shared area, the washroom & security lock of the main door must be fixed ASAP.

Budget friendly, Nice staff, Nearby MRT Station

Overall, it was GOOD. The Hive provides you with all basic traveller's needs: comfy bed, blanket, pillow, wifi & computer, & decent breakfast. Female dorm was separated from front desk building (different entrance), they provided lockers which free to use, you can also borrow padlock or adaptor with only SGD 2 deposit. There were 2 bathrooms & many toilets (separated), dont worry you wont need to wait long. You may have tea, coffee, or watching movie for free 24hrs, just get down to the lobby. I sent them email before my departure & they were promptly responded it. Their staff were friendly & helpful. The only drawback is that the bathroom often out of electricity for few minutes, still tollerable though. Also they need to clean the bin inside the guests' room & bathroom on daily basis. The location is within 5 min walk from Boon Keng MRT Sta, 10 min walk from Mustafa Shopping Center (open 24hrs). But you'll need to change lines to/from most of attraction spots. Sometimes, it's not time efficient.

If you take flight, then take MRT to Boon Keng station (the hotel is just about 150 m from the station). The staff are very welcome and good at service. I booked for 1 night (that I have to check out at 12 PM tomorrow). You can use the kitchen (they served free drinks, tea, coffee!), TV room, Wi-Fi, computers hotel. And at tomorrow morning (10 AM), I checked out from my room and asked the staff whether I able to keep my luggage at the lobby because I want to go around Singapore before I leave to Kuala Lumpur at 10 PM by train. And YES! I can keep my luggage here as well. Good deal, good staff, especially for you who visit Singapore as Backpackers. I definitely choose this hotel again if I visit Singapore next time!

Value for money, great staff to assist when needed, bed seems ok

I had been staying here in The Hive Backpackers for around two weeks, on and off. The staffs were friendly, and they were helpful as well. They do have a spacious TV room, and another separated spacious gaming (including game consoles and board game) room. This would be one of my favorite backpacker's hostels in Singapore. When I was leaving the hostel, I heard from one of the staff mentioning that they are going to upgrade and renovate one side of their dorm area within months so it might be even better the next time I'm visiting them!
