The Sleepy Kiwi Backpackers Hostel
Ranked #94 of 234 Specialty Lodging in Singapore
Reviewed July 23, 2013

Was transferred from Green Kiwi to here due to delayed ETA. Downgraded from 8-bed to 12-bed female dorm with same price. Great location though, right behind sultan mosque and 5-min walk from Bugis MRT so can't complain much. Every easy to get around to almost every main attractions by MRT. Also a great choice if you are planning to head to JB sentral station on the border of Singapore and Malaysia for sleeper train, only a 5-min walk from the hostel to the highway bus stop to JB on Queen Street. Nice and friendly staff, the housekeeper Zheng A-yi was very attentive to every guests, especially the Mandarin-speaking guests (she doesn't speak much English)and love to talk. Downside: only two bathrooms in the entire hostel and there's no mirror in front of sinks. Rooms are clean but still dirty at hard-to-clean area. Overall, I enjoyed the stay.

Room Tip: Make sure you arrive at the place before your planned ETA.

I stayed here for 3 days. At first I was shocked as I had not stayed in many hostels befor. The 4 bed dorm was cramped but adequate. The bed lamp was a very good idea so it was possible to read etc with out disturbing other guests. 5 mins from the metro really good directions given by them to find the hostel if unfamiliar with the area. Breakfast was basic fruit, toast drink.
I would defently recommend this hostel & stay again. Very friendly staff & a mix of guests

Room Tip: Stay in a 4 bed
