Great place to stay!
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 8 May 2017
First time to travel solo, great place to start. The amenities are not lacking-- the all you can eat breakfast of toast and jams is filling for a long morning of walking around in they city. It's such a relaxed place, and the people in the same room (all-female room) were quite friendly. Maybe I'm just overly sensitive but the music playing in the common room is quite loud though. Showers are great, always kept clean. Beds are comfy and clean.

I have stayed here like 7 times so far in the past two years. Sadly, hygiene wise it's only getting worse. Last time around the toilet's situation was beyond description. This is the side from where people go upstairs so on many evenings a lot of drunk travellers end up using it and sort of messing up. Anyhow, the rooms are alright. Certain beds may not have wifi reception. No lockers in the room, so you have to put your stuff under the bed. Smaller lockers available near the reception. The staff is alright. The filipinas were nice and friendly. Location is a bit of a walk to places, yet in comparison to many it's quite nice. I stay here again and again for the sake of fruits that they offer during breakfast. It's just a nice change to usual bread and spread only breakfast in most hostels around. Which explains the few bucks extra they charge (in comparison). Also, the coffee is the best i've had in any hostel. You're allowed one free espresso with ur breakfast and it's just perfect. The house keeping is efficient on some days. Did find a whole of dust and trash under the bunk. Also, plenty of long term travellers/workers staying here. Dorm literally never leave the room. Kinda strange! Anyhow, so with breakfast being one of the major reasons, i wouldn't say much about anything else. Oh and the rooftop is nice for socialising and beers (which are cheaper than other places). I'd hope and wish for the place to get cleaner.

We found our stay at the green kiwi to be exactly what we were looking for. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfy, also well air conditioned. The showers were really good too. The free breakfast was useful considering how expensive Singapore is. The hostel has a nice atmosphere and a great roof top garden so it is easy to meet new people.

If you happen to be spending you birthday in Singapore. Why not buy a cake, notify the counter, and invite whoever has time that night at the hostel!? you'd be amazed to meet fun people from around the world.

It's really clean and recently-renovated. However, I don't recommend to stay in large rooms of 16. people come and go, and may wake you up at night.

Room tip: don't miss the morning coffee!

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 room as there are no full sized lockers - only small lockers in the common area for valuables. The dorm overall wasn't extremely social, mainly due to a large amount of older people who appeared to be locals? Overall, the facilities are okay and pretty clean.

I think next time we will try to find a hostel closer to Chinatown and the bay with a younger crowd.
