We booked bunks in a 10 room dorm and were surprised to find two older ladies who apparently are long(er) term guests? It didn't seem like they ever left the room and spent most of the time harping at staff to get linens changed or to turn down the a/c. We felt a little uncomfortable leaving our belongings in the...

Surprisingly good!!! The guys manning the desk were friendly and helpful. Bathrooms were clean and showered down every night. Aircon in the room was great. Room was 'compact' but adequate to use as a base. Basic breakfast was provided (tea/coffee, toast and spreads) but totally fine as a quick bite to eat before heading out.

This hostel was a bit of a disappointment after the good review I read. Pros: Good breakfast (tea or coffee, toast + spreads and fruit). Pretty close to MRT stations and there are actually a few nice cafes nearby. Rooms were quiet. Cons: Staff seemed quite disorganised, we got charged less than we were meant to and then they later...

Loved this hostel! Really relaxed atmosphere and staff all very friendly. We stayed in a 10bed female dorm, the dorm was spacious enough, each bed had its own light which was very useful and nice not to keep other people awake. Aircon was great, kept room really cool so light duvet provided by hostel was nice and cosy too. Breakfast...

The sheets were a bit old, the room is pretty small and the toilet was not very clean. But the breakfast was very good and so the positioning as it is 5 minutes walking from green and violet line and 2 minutes from little India (very well connected with all the main spots in the city center). Overall I would...

Stayed here for three nights on my first trip to Singapore. It's easy to get here from the airport (takes about 30 minutes) and is close to the MRT station which makes it easy to get around central Singapore. The staff were friendly and helpful; there's a free breakfast of coffee or tea and toast; and the rooms are clean...

My friend and I went for a spontaneous trip to Singapore for some days and luckily we checked in at the green kiwi. Lovely little hostel with a lovely staff. The atmosphere at the hostel is just perfect. Thank you for a very pleasant stay.

I stayed there for three nights in January 2016 and had a great time. Breakfast was good and the people who work there are very helpful. Only minor issue would be that the bathrooms coud need some sope.
