Loved this hostel! Really relaxed atmosphere and staff all very friendly. We stayed in a 10bed female dorm, the dorm was spacious enough, each bed had its own light which was very useful and nice not to keep other people awake. Aircon was great, kept room really cool so light duvet provided by hostel was nice and cosy too. Breakfast... More

The sheets were a bit old, the room is pretty small and the toilet was not very clean. But the breakfast was very good and so the positioning as it is 5 minutes walking from green and violet line and 2 minutes from little India (very well connected with all the main spots in the city center). Overall I would... More

Stayed here for three nights on my first trip to Singapore. It's easy to get here from the airport (takes about 30 minutes) and is close to the MRT station which makes it easy to get around central Singapore. The staff were friendly and helpful; there's a free breakfast of coffee or tea and toast; and the rooms are clean... More

My friend and I went for a spontaneous trip to Singapore for some days and luckily we checked in at the green kiwi. Lovely little hostel with a lovely staff. The atmosphere at the hostel is just perfect. Thank you for a very pleasant stay.

I stayed there for three nights in January 2016 and had a great time. Breakfast was good and the people who work there are very helpful. Only minor issue would be that the bathrooms coud need some sope.

Friendly and helpful staff sorted out my room as I was arriving late even thought the desk had closed for the night. Breakfast was unreal, proper good coffee, loads of fresh fruit and toast with many toppings. Nice vibe and good beds, girlfriend got a few bites in a line on her leg but reluctant to use the B word.... More

Friendly staff and very good breakfast! The rest was okay. The toilets were never cleaned properly and underneath the beds where you're supposed to store your luggage it's very dusty. So your stuff gets dirty really quick. And there was a real strong smell all over the place which was not nice.

It is very comfortable. There are two showers and toilets per floor and in addition to that sinks. I selpt in a room with 20 beds and it was really quiet and everybody was mindful (only about 6beds have been in use). You may choose the kitchen and all the stuff to cook. The breakfast is special. I liked it... More

Friendly staff, extremely welcoming and helpful. The hotel is fairly close to a subway station too. The showers work as does the AC . It's exceptionally cheap but quite a way from marina bay, china town etc. The rooms are really, really basic but clean. Typical clients seem to be backpackers and the like.

I really enjoyed staying in Green Kiwi! Breakfast (especially coffee) was really good and the girls working there are really helpful and welcoming. Unfortunately, they do not have a tour guide anymore but we met the old guide who showed us around. As a solo traveller I was happy about the rooftop because you always meet new people there. All...
