I've stayed a few times on transit to Manado. The reception staff changes, but the regular one especially Rosanna, remembers me. Clean, tidy and cozy living area. but i prefer the sofas better. The nearest to the MRT and have female dorm which makes single female travelers feel safe.

Upon high recommendation my brother i decided to try out RuckSack Inn @ temple street. And I'm happy to say that it has far exceeded my expectations. Value for money has no better expression than rucksack. The friendly courteous staff, and the chilled out relaxing space just made my holiday in Singapore one of the most worthwhile trips I have...

Very good location nestled in the heart of china town only a few minutes round the corner from the metro which makes this place a good base to explore Singapore. The rooms are clean but very small, we chose the 12 bed dorm which was very cramped and had to sleep in the bed with my rucksack. Bathrooms, toilets and... More

I was greeted well when I arrived and given a brief orientation. It's my first experience staying in a dorm and it was ok. I got the upper deck of a 6 bedroom female dorm. The bed sheet was clean, mattress firm and soft lumpy pillow. Only thing I don't like was that the room didn't have any windows. The... More

The staff here are absolutely wonderful. On top of that the place is located in Chinatown which is great because it exposes you to an area of Singapore you may have otherwise not visited. Chinatown is not somewhere you want to miss. This inn is also extremely clean and quiet. Definitely a nice respite from many of the not so... More

Very friendly staff, cosy place in the middle of Chinatown. I don't find much fault in this place, the rooms were bit small but that's everything. It was silent during the night, the rooms were airconditioned and the common space was nice to hang around. I enjoyed my stay, particular thanks to the friendly staff, and would highly recommend this... More

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Couldn't ask for a better experience living in a hostel. Lived in the female dorm and had no problems. Situated in Chinatown, easy access to MRT and food which is all around you. Place was clean and safe, no complains. Highly recommended place to stay in Singapore for basic and convenient accommodation.
