Located at the centre of Chinatown, Rucksack Inn @ Temple Street is just less than 5 minutes walk away from the Chinatown MRT station, making it easy for you to start your Singapore exploration after an energized sleep and get back to the inn to recharge yourself at the end of the day for the next day's adventure! Clean and... More

This hostel is centrally located in the heart of Chinatown, and is only about 200 metres away from the Exit A of Chinatown MRT station. Getting around Singapore from this location is a breeze due to the hostel's close proximity with the MRT station. The hostel is very suitable for travelers traveling in a group as the hostel has different... More

I have been there just for one night so I couldn't take advantage of Xbox ps3 and wii :). Very clean and safe. The rooms are small as the toilets and showers. The breakfast is very very simple, but the location is fantastic.

Funky, clean hostel in amongst a popular tourist/eating/shopping area of Singapore. But I didn't enjoy my stay as much as the original ruck sack in hong kong street. It lacks a larger common room but people tend to meet out the front picnic table & a lack of places to hang clothes, even to air a towel. You do have... More

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
