Hello Singapore~!

Took a detour to Singapore when we cancelled our Bangkok trip due to the floods.

Highlight of the trip was spending the day in Universal Studios...which was amazing! :D

Here's to many more years of friendship and travelling together. Love you guys ♥

-Mini review on The Hive @ Boon Keng-

We stayed at a backpacker's hostel called The Hive and chose the branch in Boon Keng because we wanted two twin sharing rooms. The other branches only had dorm style rooms.

Overall we really enjoyed our stay here, the rooms and toilets were very clean. Aircond was freezing cold and the blankets were kinda thin so we had to adjust the aircond and wear our jackets to sleep. haha. Breakfast is provided for free every morning from 7.30am to 10.30am. You can have toast with jam/peanut butter/butter/kaya or milk and cereal. Coffee and Tea are complimentary throughout the day. The staff were very friendly and helpful, there was free wifi throughout the hostel and there were several computers available for guests to use. Mine and Jacintha's room had a window facing the streets so we could hear some traffic noises at night but it wasn't that bad. We were still able to sleep through the night...except the first night when we woke up several times because the aircond was too cold. haha. The walls between rooms are pretty solid and sound although it was fully booked, we couldn't really hear any talking/laughing/etc from the other rooms. We tested it ourselves since we were worried about making too much noise at night laughing...turns out once we closed the main door (it's like a main room with two twin sharing rooms inside), no one else could hear us. :)

Definitely recommended place for budget travellers/ backpackers. Our rooms were SGD50 per room per night. All in we paid SGD300 for 4 pax for 3 nights. 

For further info or to book a room, check out:



  1. going to spore next year .. and i did check this place out from their site!! it's close to the mrt right?

  2. Oh cool! :D It's "close" to the Boon Keng station but you'll still have to walk a bit to get there...cos after you come outta the Boon Keng MRT station (take the exit that goes towards Serangoon Road), you'll see a padang...The Hive is at the end of the padang (imagine football field)...across the road. Roughly 8-10mins walk I guess... :)

  3. haha, you really did these experiment for sound proof:D


Thanks for leaving a comment! It's like giving me a cookie. Yay! haha. ♥
