First time to travel solo, great place to start. The amenities are not lacking-- the all you can eat breakfast of toast and jams is filling for a long morning of walking around in they city. It's such a relaxed place, and the people in the same room (all-female room) were quite friendly. Maybe I'm just overly sensitive but the...

I have stayed here like 7 times so far in the past two years. Sadly, hygiene wise it's only getting worse. Last time around the toilet's situation was beyond description. This is the side from where people go upstairs so on many evenings a lot of drunk travellers end up using it and sort of messing up. Anyhow, the rooms...

We found our stay at the green kiwi to be exactly what we were looking for. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfy, also well air conditioned. The showers were really good too. The free breakfast was useful considering how expensive Singapore is. The hostel has a nice atmosphere and a great roof top garden so it is...

If you happen to be spending you birthday in Singapore. Why not buy a cake, notify the counter, and invite whoever has time that night at the hostel!? you'd be amazed to meet fun people from around the world. It's really clean and recently-renovated. However, I don't recommend to stay in large rooms of 16. people come and go, and...

We booked bunks in a 10 room dorm and were surprised to find two older ladies who apparently are long(er) term guests? It didn't seem like they ever left the room and spent most of the time harping at staff to get linens changed or to turn down the a/c. We felt a little uncomfortable leaving our belongings in the...

Surprisingly good!!! The guys manning the desk were friendly and helpful. Bathrooms were clean and showered down every night. Aircon in the room was great. Room was 'compact' but adequate to use as a base. Basic breakfast was provided (tea/coffee, toast and spreads) but totally fine as a quick bite to eat before heading out.

Stayed there for 4 nights in total and could leave my luggage there free of charge for the time I've been away. The staff and the vibe is just amazing, as well as the coffee (as a european staying 5 month in Singapore i have to say that a good coffee is not easy to find here and if you...

This hostel was a bit of a disappointment after the good review I read. Pros: Good breakfast (tea or coffee, toast + spreads and fruit). Pretty close to MRT stations and there are actually a few nice cafes nearby. Rooms were quiet. Cons: Staff seemed quite disorganised, we got charged less than we were meant to and then they later...
