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

As a backpacker (budget traveler) there's nothing you'll miss in Rucksack Inn. There's a 24/7 reception, free all-day breakfast (toast, peanut butter, jam, coffee, tea), a book exchange, aircons and fans in the rooms and free Wifi with decent speed working in all rooms. There's even free soap liquid in the showers and three free-to-use Macs in the lobby. You... More

Great location, everything you need is walking distance and if you want to venture a bit further into singapore to Botanical Gardens or Night Safari for example, the MRT runs just 100 metres up the road.

Although the rooms and bathrooms were a bit small (come in, turn around, and go out again^^), everything was clean and good. I was a bit unlucky with the other people in my dorm, as they were very noisy all the time, but this was bad luck I guess. The staff was so nice and funny and gave many good... More

Unless the size of bathroom and toilet, everything is nice in Rucksack Inn @ Temple Street. Wifi is strong, location is great, breakfast anytime you want and Rosana very helpful. If you don't know where to go, you just ask and she will help you.

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?

We are newly renovated and touted as the 5 star luxury backpacker's hostel. ... more   less
