Staff is helpful and knowledgable. Free breakfast. Great coffee and roof terrace, what more can you ask for! Rooms are very clean. Hostel is close to metro stations and cheap places where to eat. My boyfriend and I truly enjoyed our stay at Green Kiwi. Perfect for backpackers!

Great little hostel just out of the city, everyone is so friendly and you get more than what you pay. Not very far from public transport and it's a short walk to food options. The staff were really helpful as well!

I stayed at Green Kiwi for four nights and I had an excellent experience. The staff were helpful, friendly and knowledgable and always willing to help. The free breakfast was simple but tasty, with toast, cereal, seasonal fruit and FABULOUS coffee. The rooms were clean and tidy, and there was plenty of space for me. The roof terrace was a... More

My first ever hostel experience in SE Asia and remains one of my favourite hostels to this day. Though it was difficult to find initially with the taxi driver, nor myself, having a clue where it was, it proved to be a bit of a hidden gem after 4 nights staying here. I arrived quite late at night but the... More

Nice hostel. The staff is very friendly, the breakfast is good, and the rooftop is very nice. I really liked staying here They should replace the bedsheets though, because they're pretty old and kind of uncomfortable. The showers are really nice, and the hostel is very clean. The location is average, not far away from the Bugis Area, but the... More

I loved my stay at the green kiwi backpacker hostel. Best hostel I've stayed at in south east Asia so far. Slept like a baby in the beds, with a real duvet. There are plenty of plugs by your bed, to charge whatever you want to charge. Clean Aircon rooms, very good and warm showers. Lovely with a common area... More

This Hostel offers everything you need and even sells beer for a cheap price. The rooms are clean and have everything a hostel should offer. The highlight in the hostel is definitely the atmosphere!! Great and welcoming people. I will definitely come back!!
