Green Kiwi Backpacker Hostel is value for money, the location is quiet and perfect, the AC is good, etc. it's easy to get around Singapore by the ever efficient SBS buses. but above all, it's the staff that matters most. thank you very much to J'Anne and Doris Yap. both of you deserves praise and job well done !

Very comfortable stay at the Green Kiwi. Staff were super helpful and friendly, remembered my name and were super accommodating. One of the communal toilets was clogged for most of my stay, but otherwise everything was fantastic.

Nice hostel, great staff if you need anything just ask and they'll do everything they can to help. Delux breakfast including fresh fruit and peanut butter which was awesome. Comfy beds and the roof terrace is nice. Showers were amazing and proper monsoon heads. The wifi is temporamental at best. It does work but will frequently drop out. The 5g signal was the most stable during my visit.

Was my second stay here (first one almost 3 years ago). Still a nice, good place to stay in singapore. MRT is nearby, Little India one of the best locations for good food and shopping, nice hostel, super friendly and helpful staff (thanks for all the informations and smiles, btw), nice showers.... everything still perfectly fine.

Great place to stay, not far from the mrt and nice rooftop areas to chill. Would recommend.

While hostels in Singapore will be more expensive than your average hostel in the SE Asian countries, this hostel makes up for the price. They offer free breakfast, the staff is friendly, helpful, and full of recommendations and advice. The bunks were clean, soft, and had blankets and AC in the dorms. The showers were hot. And the toilets flushed and had toilet paper. Close to the MRT station. Good rooftop garden/bar.

Nice staff on the reception but not 24 hours. Close to Little India but short metro ride to Bayfront area

Not a single thing to complain about, and much to praise, from the all-morning breakfast (fruit! toast! actually good coffee! with milk at that!) to the roof-top garden. Yes, there isn't a kitchen or 'fridge, but you're told of that right away, and there're heaps of delicious, cheap places to eat a stone's-throw away. The staff are very cheerful, and the rooms are quiet, cool, dark, and will have you catching up on all that lost sleep.

Lovely helpful staff and relaxed about check in/out times. Breakfast runs all day do you don't have to get up early which is great. Wifi wasn't great in the room but there were 3 options to choose from and the rooftop bar was a nice place to sit. Everyone who worked here was so helpful and happy to give advice on where to go and how to get there. It could have been a little cleaner but Id recommend staying here.

Me and my friend wanted somewhere cheap as we are backpacking on a budget. £10 per night which is good. Location is good, about 5 min walk from the MRT train station! Staff are friendly. Would come back again.

The Hostel is overprized. One night nearly 80 Dollar and had a tiny Little room for myself, no comfort at all for this money.

Fun and clean hostel. A bit far from the city center but it was okay. Beds are super comfortable considering that I was in a 10 bed dorm. The only downside the smelly shoe rack in reception. Overall it is one of the best hostels I have been to.

Rooftop is a lot shabbier then shown in pictures and there was not much nightlife going on up there which maybe it was just the crowd. Could have been all around quite a lot cleaner. The staff was absolutely wonderful though. They were always so polite and always ready to help. Easily approachable and took card of any questions or problems with a smile. the breakfast was also nice, just toast fruit and coffee or tea, simple and good. They also has Nutella! I would stay again if I return.

The mattress was quite awful but otherwise it was a great hostel.

The original staff was very nice, but they kept being rotated in and out with other hostels I think, so it ended up diluting the customer-staff relationship.

A nice little hostel in a good location. The nearby metro station makes it easy to get anywhere in the city, and the friendly staff will also help you get where you want to go and do what you want to do.

Really friendly and helpful staff, good breakfast, really clean bathrooms, good showers. Not really walking distance to the sights and centre but close to two MRT stations so easy enough to get around. Rooftop area is nice, but an inside area to chill out would be good, the area inside is more for using the computers and can get quite crowded. We would stay here again if they bought new pillows in the dorms!
