The Hive Backpackers’ Hostel

Hotels in Singapore is just too expensive for a poor Malaysian like me ^_^ So backpackers’ place is the place that I can afford to stay in Singapore.

We get to know about The Hive from my gf’s colleague. It is situated within walking distance to Lavender bus station (where most of the bus from Malaysia stop) and MRT Boon Keng station, roughly about 500metre walk from the station to this resting area.


The Hive is managed by a group of youngster who welcome you with something different.


The room is very spacious and comfortable, but we are here to enjoy Singapore while we can and not to waste ourtime in the bedroom, hotels like these are meant for sleep only. The best is, it is equipped with air-cond which is needed in the hot environment of the city. By the way, we  paid S$50 for it.


Just like most of the backpackers’ place in other places, we have to share the bathroom and toilet with other backpackers. Overall we are quite satisfied with the cleanliness of the toilet. But perhaps the management have encountered some unpleasant cases before till they have to come out with this gentle reminder.


Is too small to read? Never mind, here is the close-up shot to cheer you up today.


I highly recommend this place to anyone who come over to Singapore who wants to enjoy the city and not the hotel, with all major events happening here and you need that extra dough for enjoyment, this is the ideal location to be in. However, this place is always fully booked, so make sure you make your reservation at least a month in advance to avoid any dissapointment.
