They definitely have one of the best breakfasts we had in a long time. Fresh fruit, unlimited toast with different choices of jam, Nutella etc and a good coffee! Was great! We enjoyed our stay there. The staff is really friendly. While the dorm rooms are pretty regular, the mattresses are very comfortable and the showers and toilets clean. We... More

Good location, close to Little India and the subway station so easy to get about. Dorm room is standard although seems like beds are crammed as many into a room as possible leaving no room for luggage storage. We had problems with noisy, inconsiderate people during our stay but that's not the hostel's fault. The inclusive breakfast is very good,... More

The hostel for hostel standards is pretty good. I have been travelling for a while now and stayed in around 20 hostels so I'm rather used to hostel life and this one was quite clean, it had a good breakfast which hardly any hostel offers, the showers were quite good and the beds were comfy. The staff are pleasant however... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here on a short trip from Indonesia. The dorm room beds were so comfy, I didn't want to get up. You could get wifi in the room and the upstairs decking. The bathrooms were clean. All in all, a nice hostel, quiet and clean. We'd stay again.

Very well-managed facility. Washrooms and showers are kept very clean despite the volume of people. 10 beds per room seemed a bit much but I didn't really mind. The staff couldn't be more helpful and friendly. They serve free breakfast with fresh fruits, toast and coffee. Also have computers free to use. They have a rooftop lounge which is pretty... More

With 4 kids under age 7 in tow, we knew this trip will be a challenge but we are pleasantly surprised that the hostel team was so friendly and very helpful that my kids felt at home.

Green Kiwi Backpackers is a great hostel in Singapore. Singapore is an expensive place to visit, many people use it as a travel hub, but this hostel has a nice community feel to it. The rooms are air conditioned, clean and comfy. The beer prices (for Singapore) and the noise levels are low. It is situated in a great little... More

Managed to get a dorm bed for an okay price. It's a rather cramped hostel. The beds are comfy however the blankets are rather small, the breakfast is good (just some fruit, toast and tea or coffee to start the day) and its about 5mins walk from the MRT and across the road from Lavender food centre. I was forced... More
