Great breakfast! Not really great common area, although the rooftop is nice. Helpfull staff. Room was too small en beds too, not enough space to put your stuff. Location is ok but you need MRT to get into town or taxi at night. Met nice people here. Already recommended this place a couple times. Good value for money considering Singapore is so expensive.

PROS: The showers are big and have overhead facets. The common area has good computers. Wifi was good, but spotty if many people are on their phones. Breakfast was free: toast, Nutella, jam, coffee, watermelon and other fruit. The reception was open late. CONS: The 12 person dorm was filthy, the dust under the bed was so thick you could roll your fingers through it. The refundable key deposit was $10 and the receptionist would try to scam everyone and tell everyone that they didn't pay it.

A nice place to stay, for the price. Bed was comfy. Room was clean. Staff were friendly. It's just a bit of a trek to get anywhere - 10 minute walk just to the train station.

Good hostel within walking distance of Lavender MRT station. Staff are helpful about things to see and the rooftop terrace is a good place to meet people.

This place was awesome, I can't speak more highly of it! The staff is awesome, greeting you with fresh coffee at breakfast and answering any questions you might have about how to get around and things to do in the city. One night they even helped me order delivery pizza. It also has an amazing atmosphere that makes making new friends as easy as asking someone for a cig. They sell beer for $3.50, which is perfect for playing drinking games on their roof top deck with your new found friends.

I had a great time at the Green Kiwi!! The nreakfast was amazing, the staff was great and had good advices for activities. There were also computers available. The only negative thing wad that it got quite hot in the 10-dorm at night and my bed was on the opposite side of the air con. Some additional fans would be nice.

Awesome hostel! They had so many services like laundry and printing and they made everything as convenient as possible for guests staying in the hostel! It was very clean and air conditioned, with great showers. Thank you for a great stay!

The staff was quite friendly & accomodating but the place being crowded needs more attention to cleanliness. Unfortunately, my friends & I had to transfer to another hostel nearby. The food was better than most places I've stayed in the past years.

It was a nice place located centrally in Singapore. We took the private 2-bed dorm and spent time going to the city back and forth. The rooftop garden was a nice place to eat and talk :)

Cheap hostel with really good atmosphere. Neighboorhood is definitely not the best of Osaka but the cheapest, and the common area wih video game and graffitis on the walls makes you forget the food smell in your tiny room.

Not located in the most tourist friendly area of Singapore. It's a bit of a hike to both of the rail lines if you are carrying your pack. But the location is clean and the breakfast was superb. And it's really good value for the money in Singapore.

Nice busy hostel with a lot of beds and a lot of people. Staff are excellent, very friendly and helpful and there's a nice rooftop garden area where you can meet other travellers. I only stayed one night but would stay again.
