Hostelworld says:

Green Kiwi Backpacker Hostel is a laid-back place featuring a large rooftop garden terrace, perfect for finding a quiet moment in the busy city. Many Hostelworld guests have said they'd stay here again, saying it's 'a real home away from home' and that the friendly New Zealander staff have 'a broad knowledge of the city and what to do and see'. They have a popular free breakfast and are located just 10 minutes' walk from two metro lines.

Property Information:

Voted Best Hostel Singapore 2014 by Hostelworld! We love Singapore, and want you to love it too :) Fantastic staff that will get to know you, lovely breakfast, unlimited internet, wi-fi, aircon, lockers, maps and advice, all free :)

Our staff will give you all their local knowledge of what to see and do - our mission is to make sure you leave feeling you really know one of the world's most unique cities!
- see the fantastic new Gardens by the Bay at night, as well as the 150 year old UNESCO candidate 'Botanic Gardens' by day
- see the big city lights of Marina Bay and the Singapore River area, as well as the two free light shows
- Singapore's best kept secret, the URA Singapore City Gallery, 3 floors of scale models of the city (we call it the Backpacker Helicopter Tour :)
- Orchard Road has 22 malls, but we can tell you which ones are the best, or direct you to Bugis for some serious (and cheaper) shopping
- if you've seen one Chinatown you've seen them all, but it's just 5 stops on the MRT, there's a great Hindu temple plus lots of 3-for-$10 souvenir shops if you've got space in your backpack
- in nearby Little India there's the newly refurbished Sri Veerama Kaliamman Temple, well worth seeing (50,000 devotees attended it's reopening day)

All of the above are free!

If you've been to New Zealand you'll know all the adventure attractions are $150 or $199, but in Singapore most of the attractions are in the $30 range, so quite affordable. Splash out on the world's biggest aquarium, explore the world's best (and cage free) Zoo or it's nocturnal sister the Night Safari, or get escape the heat in the Cloud Forest & Flower Dome.

We have all these tickets available for you, so you'll never find 'sold' out once you get to the attraction, and all are at a discount.

If it's city skyline views you're looking for, we have tickets for the Singapore Flyer, or we can direct you to the Marina Bay Sands rooftop, KuDeTa, or New Asia Bar for great skyline views with a drink in your hand. Speaking of drinks, we have Singapore's famous Tiger beer cheaper than 7-11, so you can pre-load before you go out, or just hang out at the hostel and swap stories :)

If you are looking for a friendly place to stay in Singapore, in the central city area convenient to public transport and getting around, this is it! We are a small laid back place to stay where you'll some meet great people and get some sleep!

Owned & run by a New Zealander ('Kiwi') by the way, hence the name Green Kiwi :)

  • Green Kiwi Backpacker Hostel says

    I'd say the most unique feature of our hostel is the rooftop garden. It's big, it's lush, and it's a great place to hang out, especially in the evenings when it's cooler. We can't help that it's hot in Singapore during the day, but you can sunbathe if you like.
    Also, our breakfast puts us ahead of the rest. Rather than just putting a bunch of bread and jam on a table, our staff prepare each guest's breakfast individually. It's simple toast and fruit, but the fruit is a mix of the familiar (eg oranges) and the exotic (eg dragonfruit). Our coffee is proper gourmet from a proper café-grade Italian espresso machine. And our breakfast is Kosher, Halal and vegetarian.
    Singapore is quite a small island, with excellent public transport, and nothing is very far. We're in the city area, easily accessible from all the main tourist areas. We have the famous Lavender Street hawker centre just across the road, with heaps of cheap local food. I'd recommend two must-see free things: the URA's Singapore city gallery (three floors of scale models of the city) by day, and the four sections of Singapore River (Clarke Quay, Boat Quay, Marina Bay, Gardens by the Bay) by night.

    This is very good hostel for money, despite you need 10-15 min walk to MRT stations. Very clean, nice staff, free breakfast, plenty of shower booths. Despite it doesn't have kitchen, you can eat out at several food courts (hawker centre) so cheaply.

    Green Kiwi is a superb hostel for exploring the sights of Singapore. All members of the staff and friendly and extremely helpful if you have any queries about the hostel or surrounding areas. Beds are comfortable and showers are decent. The breakfast is FANTASTIC whilst there is one of the best Hawker markets in town across the road (fantastic chicken wings and popiah).
