We really enjoyed our stay at the Hive. Staff were really kind and helpful. Being so close to an MRT station is great. Felt like our stuff was really safe there, with good security. Would definitely stay again.

Situated at a walking distance from some main attractions of Little India. The girl at the reception was adorable. The dorm I stayed in (a 10 person dorm) was very cramped, the AC was hardly working, it was hot, stuffy and very stinking inside. I wouldn't go there again.

2nd time to stay here, for total of 14nights. One of the best hostels so far, and it's a real value for money. I'd definitely pick this hostel whenever I visit Singapore.

good location. the young girl working the desk in the mornings was great. she was always cheerful and laughing. free breakfast was cereal and toast with jam. hot showers. I would recommend this place and would stay again.

Really friendly staff and good atmosphere in the hostel. The beds in the dorm were fine, but needed individual bed lights and it was sometimes a bit dirty. The bathrooms were mostly clean, although this seemed to be variable. The wifi was good, but the computers provided were pretty useless, they had a phone style operating system and hardly connected to the internet. Liked the free printing. Breakfast was boring and the area looked a bit dirty, so we went out.

Very good place to stay! Good atmosphere, really nice staff and central location close to subway! Free international phone calls were very helpful. Only weak point is that wifi is somewhat unstable sometimes. Overall I would recommend it!

Computers with Internet are free but it was programmed in Android and the staff can do nothing about it. ANDRIOD IS FOR TABLET, BUT NOT FOR COMPUTERS! please respect to those guests who have no experience how to use tablets. Thank you!

Clean and basic. Good value for price. 10 min subway ride to downtown and a close walk to the mustafa 24 hr mall.

It's understandable the price is a bit steep since it's Singapore. It's close to an MRT station and generally clean. Mattress is a bit hard and putting on the bed sheet was a big struggle since it was slightly smaller than the mattress. Lockers are smaller than average and have no slots to put in padlocks (or maybe we're wrong-we couldn't figure it out anyhow).

really convenient~near the MRT and the supermarket. the breakfast is ok:jam,bread and milk is delicious BUT the computer,especially the Internet, is slower than a snail.

The girl staff who welcomed me at reception was very kind and helpful. The facilities were good, the free breakfast was the best value. The location was very strategic, although the nearest MRT (Ben Koong Station) was quite far to walk ( 300m), but there might be other bus shuttle near hostel. I would like to stay again someday.

Great hostel, awesome staff, so helpful and friendly, they definitely made our stay! The facilities were good, lots of showers and toilets, big common area and the free breakfast was a bonus.

The breakfast had peanut butter, which we were extremely excited about. The hostel was good and comfortable - decent dorm rooms, great security features with a scan card, good showers, and pretty close to the MRT station and right near Little India. I would recommend it to anyone who's looking for a decent cheap stay in Singapore.

Nothing to complain about, except maybe the beds, honestly felt like sleeping on the floor. But besides that everything was good. Free breakfast is always appreciated😊

Thank you for your review. Our mattress (quality Seahorse brand) comes with two different hardness, soft on one side and medium on the other. The medium side is always always on the top as we want to prolong the lifespan. However, if you think the mattress is too hard for you, we can always turn it to the other side. Please let us know in future if the mattress does not suit you. We are committed to providing you a good night rest. We look forward to host you again!
