i thought the staff were very friendly but the common area was poorly laid out with bench seating facing the wall.I figure this was due to size constrants but it made it hard to talk/meet new people. I also meet a guy here who had bed bugs and all they did was change the sheets move him to a new room then proced to check someone else into that bed. overall not the best hostel.

It is a ten minute walk from the metro station, buses do depart nearby. There is a good food court around the corner. Staff is really friendly and keen to give information. There are enough computers available. Rooms are very small, and have AC. Breakfast is good, with some fruit and good coffee. Bathrooms are ok, showers ok. On the rooftop we had some cockroachs.

Our stay there was quite good. The location could be better... Not that far from MRT but having to walk under the sun makes it seem kind of long still. It was generally clean, but the only thing is that even though we were not supposed to wear shoes, some pple wore shoes etc in showers (and use it to wash stuff) and they were not that clean as a result... But in the end a good enough hostel

Very nice hostel. Staff were excellent, very friendly and knowledgable. The breakfast was fantastic. Rooms were comfortable though the blankets were a bit shabby and the wifi cut out a lot while I was there. Overall a great hostel especially if you're on a budget. I would definitely return here.

Stayed in a very cramped 10 bed dorm. Beds were horrible you could feel every single spring. Bathrooms were not cleaned regularly and smelled of urine. On the bright side the hostel had a good breakfast and friendly staff. Small lockers were provided for valuables but not big enough for your rucksack. Hostel also has a rooftop and cheap drink prices.

I had super-amazing time at Green Kiwi. The hostel service was really good, the staffs are super nice, and the atmosphere is quite friendly. The hostel is very clean & pretty close to public transport services, so getting around won't be a problem. The night-out plans with hostel mates are quite awesome, too, even though I haven't had the honor to join. In short, Green Kiwi is a great option out there, regardless your budget.

Nice hostel. The staff is super friendly and the free breakfast was good. However the bathrooms could need a caring hand. Most of the lights didn't work and it had a weird smell to it. However I would still recommend the hostel.

Staff are very nice and welcoming, great service, clean rooms, a little bit far from the Metro though. It's a good place to stay and meet people.

Probably the friendluest and most helpful staff I've met in a hostel! Absolutely loved how they cared about their guests. I also loved the free coffee for breakfast and that you can get it basically whenever you wake up!

The staff at Green Kiwi is outstanding. So helpful, congenial, and lots of smiles. Quite a distance from MRT stations, but still quite accessible if you take a bus.

First time I stayed in a hostel and I was really impressed. Greeted by the friendly helpful staff. Met some great people on the communal rooftop garden. Excellent shower facilities and nice cool air conditioned room to chill when the heat outside becomes too much. Really really impressed.
