Green Kiwi is very well situated between two lines of the MRT. The staff were really friendly and gave us some great advice about where to visit, eat, bus routes and maps etc. The dorm itself was very small, and although the beds were comfortable, there was not much room to move around especially with big bags. No lockers for... More

The atmosphere here is just incomparable if you're like me who just wants to chill, meet loads of... More

Stayed here for 2 nights and would highly recommend it. Nice staff, good rooms and a decent shower everything you need from a hostel, not a bad breakfast either! Took part in the free tour in the evening and was a great way to meet people pass this place on

Stayed here for a while whilst looking for a job in Singapore. Great location, public transportation is right next door and will get you everywhere in the city. The staff here is super friendly (especially Andrea, carol and ain), they'll help you out whenever they can for whatever you need. Also cheap beers provided (for Singapore standards) and free breakfast... More

Ther is a roof top where you can drink your beer at evening (or even in the morning). The rooms are... More

I always stay on this hostel where I would say that their accommodation is superb. Staff are super friendly. It's location within the city is nice with 3 subway stations nearby (Farrer Park, Lavender, and BoonKeng). Then the shower and bathroom is OK with rooftop garden where you can see the lights on the street at night and of course... More
