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

Very good hostel to meet some new people! The staff is very nice also! Only bad thing is that the dorms are a bit tight. There wasn't much room for the luggage. The Metro is about 10 - 15 minutes walk. There is also a foodmarket where you can eat for 3-4 SGD which is 5-10 minutes walk!

I love this place! Although it may not have the best facilities, it has the best staff and atmosphere. Everyone is so friendly and nice, its a great place to meet people and you soon feel like one of the family. I became sick whilst there and one of the staff actually walked me to the doctors.

Came here alone for a long weekend of backpacking to visit Singapore. Met some awesome people in the hostel - very good for meeting other backpackers and explorers. Made some great friends here who I have stayed in touch with ever since! The rooftop lounge area is great in the evenings for drinking and relaxing. The dorms are tidy and... More

We stayed for 4 nights at Green Kiwi hostel and couldn't fault the place. It's in a great location close to two MRT stations which is great for getting around Singapore. The staff were all amazing, so so friendly and helpful with everything. Very clean, obviously you can't help who you get in your room but we had no problems... More

This would have been just an average 2-3 star review if not for the fact I ended up paying $84 for 1 night in this poxy dump. The reason I cut my stay short was that the beds and bathroom facilities were by far the worst I've ever come across (and I've backpacked a fair amount in my day). If... More

Had a great stay, tried a few other Hostels in SG, but Green Kiwi was by far the best. Place was kept really clean, breakfast was nice and Andrea and the girls were super hospitable. The rooftop is also a great place to hang out for a quiet night in- John

It was not the best in terms of amenities but the service was great. It is one of the cheapest places to stay at in Singapore. The breakfast was nice with a lot of fruits and free brewed coffee. I instantly felt connected because 2 of the staff I met were Filipinas. They were very friendly and made my stay... More
