The location of the hostel was very near the MRT station and this is a great plus. The hostel has a no shoe policy and they provided us with shoe boxes to keep our shoes. The shower rooms downstairs are very tiny, and I had to be careful not to wet my clothes that I'm about to change into after... More

I've stayed at rucksack several occasions. Rooms are extremely we'll looked after, clean and comfortable. They have a strict no shoe (a reminder that it's standard in Asia to take your shoes off in doors) policy and it seems as if they are always mopping. For the amount of traffic going through this place it is immaculate and the cleaning... More

It was really fun,I like it coz of its proximity to MRT station,it's just 2mins walk. There are lots of food resto/hawkers nearby. Plus it's close to shops for souvenirs. The rooms are so clean and they have very accommodating staff.

A great choice for staying a couple of days in Singapore. Close to the underground and many restaurants around the hostel. All the staff is very friendly and helpfull. Clean dorms and bathroom facilities. Mac computers in the lobby for checking mails, etc. We would come again. Thanks for all.

The communal area of the hostel are fine, shiny Apple Macs free for everyone to use, fast WiFi, breakfast/lounge area. Showers are powerful and the place is generally kept very clean. Also, the girl on the front desk was very friendly. However, we were in the 12 bed dorm and it was very cramped, I feel they have crammed in... More

Stayed 2 nights in the family room, Amoy with 5 others on an all girls trip. The staff was kind enough to let us check in early (arrived in Singapore at 8.30AM) at 11AM since the room was ready. Check in was a breeze with helpful staffs and soon we were ready to explore the city. Pretty handy that the... More
