I came here on June 2014 (sorry for late review). I was going to Singapore for holiday with one of my best-friend. I found difficulties to find this place, since they are far from airport also the MRT Station. If you take MRT, you can stop in Lavender stations, and go down to change with bus (I'm sorry I forgot... More

I stayed here as my first stop on a three month trip and it was my first real experience of Hostel life. The staff were super friendly and helpful, able to advise you with directions, cheapest entry prices/tickets etc. The hostel is located by two subway stations which is good and travel around the city is very easy.

This was my first time staying in a hostel, and it was quite comfortable. The staff was very welcoming, answered all my 'silly' first timer questions, and I felt at home. I stayed in a mixed 6 bed dorm and had no issues (the pillow could have used an upgrade). The lockers are large enough to hold a good amount... More

All employees of this hostel are really really welcoming and nice! They help you with anything, and will tell you all the nice places to visit around Singapore. The breakfast in the morning was very nice, they have fresh fruits and fantastic brewed (!) coffee. The rooms are just normal hostel rooms, nothing special, but clean and comfy beds. Definitely...

Most hostels in Singapore are cramped. It's a small island, expensive and popular so hardly surprising. Green Kiwi is cheap and the staff are friendly + professional. Ask them anything about Singapore and they will go out of their way to help you. Rooms are slightly cramped but clean and air-conditioned. Not much daylight. Showers are spacious and clean but...

A good, clean and well organised hostel. Friendly staff with lots of info on local activities. Hostel in Little India, so good food nearby. Also a very good coffee with breakfast! Stayed in a 6 person dorm, in a hallway with more dorms but it was quiet at night. Free to use internet computers, but also free wifi everywhere.

This hostel is great. The public areas are very clean and comfy. I love the terrace on the rooftop. Probably they cleaned it up after former reviews which said it's messy - good for me :) The dorms are a little bit dark as there is no light except for the small ones at every bed but very clean.
