We are a young Irish couple who have traveled through South east Asia extensively. This is one of the best places we stayed. We booked two beds in a ten bed dorm. They were super clean.The breakfast was lovely and the free lockers were great. Location is also excellent. You are a five minute walk from the train station/public buses...

We enjoyed our stay here, it was pleasant and the free breakfast was yummy. However the WiFi was awful, although there were some computers you could use. There wasn't much of a vibe and I think that was because there was no where apart from reception to mingle, there is no kitchen and no real lighting on the roof top...

My friends and I stayed at this place. We booked the Green Kiwi since there were 6 of us traveling and we wanted to stay in one room. A dorm was definitely the best choice. When we got there, we were greeted with smiles from the friendly staff. Rooms were clean and all of us had a good night's sleep....

I spent two nights in a dorm with three other friends at the Green Kiwi last weekend. When we arrived we did not expect much, due to the relatively cheap price but we were incredibly surprised when we walked in and were warmly welcomed by the kind and lovely staff. The environment is very pleasant and to our great surprise...

The 2 girls at the reception Bella and Lou are awesome and made our downtime enjoyable. Also internet is fast and computers are handy. Aircon in the rooms is great on a hot humid night and they sell cold beers at reception. Would stay again.

I stayed in a dorm room for four nights. It was a little bit disruptive, with people coming in and out all night, but otherwise quiet and clean. The bathrooms are plentiful and the wifi strong. The closest MRT stations aren't all that close and when it's so hot, the walk becomes a drag. But I soon discovers that the...

“All rooms look out onto a busy road, but the twin bunk was great and a little more private than the 8 bedded dorms.”
