I liked staying here. The staff are friendly and helpful, the beer is cheap (for Singapore) and the rooftop terrace is a good place to chill out and socialise. There's nothing it can do about the location, which is not great - a long slog to Lavender MRT (at least 20 mins, not counting the numerous road crossings) but slightly... More

Terrible beds, dirty covers, mattresses with springs hitting you and over washed, scratchy, uncomfortable duvet and pillow cases. We were excited to come here after reading all the great reviews! Unfortunately, it wasn't what we expected. We booked a double private room (young couple) - were shown to a tiny room with a bunk bed. There was only room for... More

A great central hostel, with sweet personal. I stayed there for 4 days, till I moved into an apartment, and I met a lot of nice people during my stay. I can really recommend the hostel to both students and backpackers :)

Everything is clean and well cared for. The free breakfast is served in the chillout area near reception where you can sit and surf the internet during your meal. Extend a bit longer for some free tea and check out all the sightseeing tips the walls are covered in while a member of friendly staff is usually up for a... More

Green Kiwi has offered us an amazing stay experience. We had stayed for 3 days in the hostel. We stayed in a small room but that was well above our expectation. The rooms and wash rooms were clean and maintained well. The break fast what they offered was our BRUNCH. The staffs were very cooperative and they helped us to... More

For starters, I arrived via the nine-dollar airport shuttle from Changi Airport - a great, cheap way to get to the hostel if you don't want to lug your bags on public transit or if you're too late for the train. They have a great system for late check-ins; I was a little worried as I arrived after reception closed,... More

Green Kiwi provided amazing hospitality from the moment we arrived to the moment we left! The rooms were always clean and air conditioned. There is so much advice available for things to do in Singapore, you'll never be stuck. They also offer discounts on some of the big attractions! The breakfast is great as well! Would highly recommend!

This hostel was a 10/10! Got voted best hostel in 2016 by Hostelworld and for good reason! The location is right next to 4 bus stops that were a minute walk (our main mode of transportation) and a 5 minute walk from the MRT stop. The rooms have cute red bunk beds that made me feel like a child (in... More

The staff are super friendly, pleasant and so helpful, enjoyed our super short stay here. The room and toilets are clean, air conditioned room, good working wifi but have limited access at the rooftop. Even the room occupied 8 persons, it is still comfortable enough for us to stay Highly suggested for those who will stay for backpackers in Singapore!!!
