Myself a few friends stayed in Casa Kiwi for four nights. The location of the hostel is pretty perfect. They have a good kitchen and TV room too. However, what we found most frustrating is that the staff members we dealt with were unhelpful and at times quite rude. A few examples... 1. When checking out we realised that we... More

Casa Kiwi was one of my favorite hostels. Mostly because of the hot water shower. I was in a triple and met some decent people. There were nights with live music. The neighborhood is quiet and not a bad walk from the commercial activities. The rooms were clean and the staff was nice.

When I came to Casa Kiwi I had quite high expectations because it is recommended by the lonely planet and also friends recommended it to me. In parts it could fulfill these expectations by having an awesome cine room, a billiard table and nice and clean common areas, but on the other hand site other hostels have this as well... More

It's a good hostel, clean, good value, the kitchen is very nice and it's got a great TV lounge and a pool table, and a little pool (or it did) on the roof. It is very clean, the staff is ALWAYS cleaning, so even though none of the guests bother to clean up after themselves in the kitchen, the ladies... More

On first sight it doesn't might seem so, but this hostel is fairly big and has a lot of space (apart from the rooms, a nice area for hammocks, a roof top area, a restaurant, a pool table, kitchen). The hostel and the rooms are clean. Staff is very friendly. Internet should be fine (some people including me had some... More

While the overall ambiance and vibe of the hostel is relatively cool, there are a great deal of things that needs to be improved. The newer addition of the hostel has nice single rooms with private bathroom and a balcony. However, I had to use the showers outside the room because I could not get hot water in the room.... More
