Super hostel.


Staff are really friendly and really can't compliment them enough. The problem is, the facility itself is so old and rundown. The bed sheets are old as well and smell. Don't even get me started on the bathroom which reeks of urine. The location isn't even all that convenient as you have to walk about 10 min to get to the MRT and then from there travel a bit to get to downtown. Can't say I'd stay here again. Staff are great though!


Very cool and funny staff, also very knowledgeable and helpful. Nice atmo + roof-top bar


Green Kiwi is an excellent base to visit Singapore.


This is definitely à place to stay in Singapore. The staff is amazing and the atmosphere is great. If you want to meet people that's the ideal hostel to do it. With the sofas on the rooftop you can spend time chilling out with other guests. Ask a room in the new part of the hostel (the new annexe). The facilities are very better and the rooms too. The breakfast is absolutely fabulous. Simple but delicious.


Good staff and clean and effective hostel. Friendly atmosphere. No lockers in the dorms.


The place was just Ok, I really find it hard to believe that this is the best hostel in Singapore. From the reviews that I had seen for this place, I was expecting more from the staff. Each time I asked a question about how to get around or what to eat, they'd reply shortly or careless that I didn't understand the names of streets, stations or dishes that were not in English but in a local language. The rooms were clean but the washrooms not as much. I think they need to clean them more often.


This hostel has friendly and helpful staff. It was very clean and I felt safe eventhough there are only small lockers in the lobby. It has a nice rooftop garden.


Singapore is nice go See, but the Hostel ( toilets ) Cant be used to Dirty and stinky there are Not cleant very often . Sory to say this...

Value for the money was excellent but could have been more cleaner.No big light in the rooms and not enough space for luggage in my room, not enough plug-ins for all people in the room. Location is pretty good. close to the metro so easy to go to other places.


Met some great friends here - the rooftop bar is a perfect place to drink in the evening and meet other travelers! Visited on my own for the weekend (about 5 months ago now) and I am still in very regular contact with the people I met that weekend here. So it was a very good for me! Would recommend. Location is not THAT good, but certainly not bad. A short walk to the MRT station, or there are buses leaving from right by it. Also there is a good local food court across the road.

Good hostel, Nice vibe, Lived The roof top terras!!


I thought the hostel was great. It was right next to a food court which was nice. It was a 10-15 minute walk from the MRT stop, not to terrible. People were nice. Breakfast was light but good.


Great conditions, great staff, great atmosphere, one of the best hostels i've ever been


Near metros staff helpful do not buy universal tickets from them the hostel next door where cheaper by $10 and even universal was cheaper at that time


i stayed at female dorm for 6. the room is quite spacious, it has a locker and they provide with clothes hunger in the room. its really cool..


The staff were amazing! The breakfast was great and I loved the atmosphere.


One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in! The staff was lovely, always very eager to help and to make you feel at "home". Definitely worth the stay - and I'll be coming back for sure!

Pretty decent hostel for the price. Had everything you could need in a hostel, it was clean and the staff were friendly and helpful.


My second stay here; great spot to hang out in Singapore.
