My stay at the rucksack inn was very pleasant. Great location in the middle of Chinatown. Rooms, showers and toilets are always clean. The rooms are a bit small, but aside fro that, i have mothing negative to stay about the hostel. Would definetly recommend.

The position of this hostel is very good: 5 min from the metro. I stayed in a six femel bed room. There was not so much space for our luggages but the beds were good. The hostel is very clean. There are separated toilets and showers (which was not so obvious in Malaysia). Staff people very friendly.

I've been in Singapore during 20-23 September which is the period of F1 world grand prix. One of the reason that you should stay at this motel is that it's close to the MRT Chinatown that it takes only 5 minutes to get to the motel. The motel is clean and both toilet and bathroom are in good hygiene condition.... More

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.
