I slept in a female dorm (6beds) for two nights. This dorm is located in another building which is opposite of the main hostel.
2. comfy beds (if you are not taking the top bunks as some skills might be needed to climb).
1. Unfriendly staff.
- no effort to introduce the hostel facilities, etc.
- Barging into the dorm at 10am to switch off the air-con. (did not knock politely, esp when the person was a guy entering a female dorm and made so much noise with his keys) I had had a long flight and extremely tired. This was my greatest annoyance which I find it terrible to be waken up by the staff instead of the guests in the same room. *Pls note that the air-con has a timer which can be put to good use)
- Did not find them friendly or try to initiate small talks. (my first time experiencing such "unfriendliness" among the many hostels that I've been to)
2. Lack of shower rooms and toilet.
- 2dorms on this floor accommodating 16 people but only provide: 1 toilet with shower attached, 1 shower room, 2 basins
3. Insufficient power socket
- of all the 6 beds, only one has socket beside it.
Good reviews from other travellers encouraged us to stay here but it was a wrond decision after all. A little more introduction of the hostel might have reduced my dissatisfaction or was it because my skin colour matters here? That was how I felt.

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?
