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...

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.

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
