Despite a bit tiny room, this hotel provide lots of thing serving budget travelers; clean room (also bathroom), averaged-quality bed sheet, free drinking water which very expensive in Singapore. Importantly, its location is very good; very very near the SMRT and right in the China Town!!!

The title says it all. The 6 bed dorm was tiny though. Staff helped us find our way around the city. Free water and toast 24.7 which saved us some money as Singapore is very expensive. 2 min walk from Chinatown MRT.

You feel comfy and welcome since the first time you stepped in. It has a password-protected lock on the main door and... More

You can easily access to Chinatown MRT station which is just few steps away and there are lots of shopping centers and hawker centers nearby. It's really clean and the staff are very friendly and...

We have moved! Now bigger, better and posh! Finally! A backpackers’ hotel by backpackers! Rucksack is conceptualized by a group of backpackers who wanted something on top of the range and yet at very friendly rates! What can we say? Life is demanding and we want the comfort and we want it at a really affordable price, and I mean really affordable! We are newly renovated and touted as the 5 star luxury backpacker's hostel. ... more   less
