Green Kiwi is everything you want from a hostel - an inexpensive place to stay with free breakfast, good facilities and even better staff! On arrival I was greeted by two of the friendliest hostel workers I've ever met, who I now have the privilege of calling great friends. All of the staff put in 110% to keep the atmosphere...

Stayed in a private room at this hostel. It was tiny, not even a table to put anything on. The room had bunk beds and barely any room to move at all. The photos of the rooftop terrace are not what you get whan you arrive and I don't know how they could even advertise it since it is just...

The hostel is in a grata location. Spacious, clean dorms and comfortable beds will ensure a good night's sleep. Plenty of showers & toilets (these could have been a tad cleaner) and good breakfast too. All in all a nice experience, would come back.

Green kiwi has nice sized dorms with comfy beds, good security, nice roof garden and common room with computers you can use for free. The breakfast was great, lots of fruit, toast with jam, peanut butter and Nutella, tea and coffee as well! The bathrooms were cleaned every day and the rooms as well. The only thing is that it's...
