“My first experience to stay at hostel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2012

Me and friends had a holiday in Singapore on 20 -23 Jan 2012, and this is my first experience to stay at the hostel, this hostel gave me good impression that there's nothing to be worried to stay at the hostel on your holiday, the staff are very friendly and helpful, the place is clean and it is cheap, the breakfast is nice especially the coffee, and the location is quite near to MRT Station ( Lavender station & Boon keng) if oneday i go to Singapore again and i will stay at this hostel again for sure

Room Tip: Room for female only is my choise

Stopped over in Singapore after a trip in India - Green Kiwi was perfect for our family. We booked a 6 room dorm for us which was excellent. Very comfy beds, excellent shower, yummy breakfast, great wifi. Were really helpful with our small kids.

Is good because it is cheap and clean and they are helpful. I fear that if it gets in the Lonely planet will become expensive and lazy like most other places once they get in LP.

since i found singapore quite expensive compared to other asian cities, having this hostel as an option was really great ;) best features for me were the hostel's accessibility to public transportation (bus stop just across the street and its between boon keng and lavender MRT, 2 different lines), their very friendly staff who are mostly filipino and the hostel's bathroom cleanliness - having shared bathrooms. the simple toast and fruit that came with the SG$21/bed/night was a plus too. i stayed in an all-female room for 6 and my room mates were very considerate... none of the noisy neighbors some talked about. oh and they do laundry for SG$8/load! and have free internet at their cozy "lobby" - another pluses ;)

Room Tip: there are rooms to choose from! so choose :)

This was our first experience with a dorm room, and it has been a great one. We stayed for 2 nights. Traffic can be noisy in the evening, so you might want to bring earplugs. But if you have been wandering the whole day, you are probably very tired! Breakfast was very nice, not the plain white toast, but wholeweat and as much as you want. We love Kaya!! Coffee was very good and the price for an extra cup is very reasonable (2 dollars). Bathroom was clean but very hot! Nice showers though! Within walking distance of Little India. Backpackerwise it is expensive, but probably one of the best in Singapore. Don't skip Singapore!! You can eat low-budget to keep your overall budget in balance!

I spent 2 nights at this hostel and I would highly recommend it. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the place is spotless. There is a nice terrace on the rooftop of the building where you can relax at the end of the day. Of course, the expresso machine was a big selling point for me and the fact that the breakfast is included (toasts, fruits and your choice of coffee or tea)!

Also, it is located a few blocks away from Lavender metro station, so access is easy.

We spent 3 nights at the Green Kiwi and it is by far the best three nights sleep i have had in three months of travelling. It has fantastic facilities. amazingly friendly and helpful staff plus good location. Really good value for money, made our stay in such an amazing city all the better.
