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!!!

We stayed here for 4 nights, and felt it was very good value for Singapore. Close to 2 metro lines, it was straightforward from the airport. Easy to reach main parts of the city from the location. Breakfast was good - decent bread and spreads, fresh fruit and great coffee. 10 bed mixed dorm was comfortable and had enough space... More

I enjoyed my stay at Green Kiwi. I've stayed at a few different accommodations around Singapore over the last few years, and this was the only that had that real "hostel vibe" in the sense that both the staff and the building was really set up to go about helping you to make the most of the city with recommendations...
