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. So... More

The staff at Green Kiwi Hostel will do anything in their power to make sure you had a comfortable stay under their watch. The bunk beds were well-organized, clean and maintained regularly by attentive workers. If you are one to hang out in the lobby, you will find great company among other travelers trying to seek out the best of... More

This is the first time I booked here. Took some gamble to book it solely based on reviews in TripAdvisor. I contacted them to inform that I will be arriving midnight, and asking their advice of means of transport from Changi since MRT stopped working at 11pm. They provided me with very good tip (a shuttle car from Changi for... More

Very well organized place. Everything you need. Lots of information. Good breakfast. Free lockers and wifi. Unfortunately the roof top terrace was closed. So it lacked a place to hang out and meet others.

Shrubs outside the building is kind of hiding the entrance, but it gives a nice shade at the same time. You're asked to take your shoes off before you enter the lobby, which is at the top of stairs. Since there are so many shoes, the staircase sort of has a bad smell. I suggest an air sanitizer or something,... More

Stay here with my family (5 adults) in the 6 bed mixed dorm. The room was okay, the keeper was sleeping in the room at the time I arrived (!) make the first wrong impression for me. The staff at reception was nice though. Breakfast was only bread and butter, and some jelly jam with no other options to choose... More
