from the moment we stepped in the door we felt so welcomed. The room also lived up to our expectations, and the location is super central. I would still say that the best about our stay was the friendly and helpful staff. Especially Mai in the reception who could answer all our questions with a smile. Thank you!

Our family travelled on our first visit to Singapore and stayed at the Rucksack Inn, Hong Kong St. The hostel staff were extremely friendly and provided an exceptionally high standard of customer service. Junior, Belinda and colleagues made us feel right at home and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hostel is located within an easy walk to Chinatown and... More

I stayed about a week here. The rooms are very clean and the location is very convenient, right by Clark Quay MRT which is great to go to at night. It's also right next to china town and not to far from Marina Bay. You get free peanut butter and jam sandwiches all day as well as coffee and tea.... More

We stayed at the hostel in February 2015. We were a group of 5 friends who stayed in the mixed dorm with 6 beds. These are bunk beds. The dorm is on the first floor and the private rooms are on the floor above. The common dining area, TV viewing area/book-shelf and the reception are on the first floor as... More

Comfy friendly hostel with great staff but very small rooms at the end of lots of stairs. Good location near to Chinatown with easy access to the MTR (subway) and walkable to Causeway Bay and some green areas.

I travel to Singapore frequently and have always stayed in hotels as I prefer private rooms with en-suite bathrooms. However, accommodation in Singapore is expensive and this time I decided to try a hostel with private room. This hostel came highly recommended and my private bedroom (shared bathroom) total rate for 3 nights cost the same to one night's hotel... More

The place is very comfy. The staffs were all lovely and helpful.It's more like a home than a hostel. Thing I love the most about this place is all the guests get to write their messages on the wall!<3

It's very very tiny but clean and has got a friendly atmosphere. If you are an easy going type of person and if you don't mind sharing, you would like this place. One of my nights staying here, I had a chat with some travellers, which is an interesting experience. This place is not bad for female travellers, as the... More

My wife and I booked the triple room as the double room was already booked out in September 2014. We were willing to pay a higher rate in order to have the extra space we thought we would be getting in a triple room. Upon arrival we were shown to the "triple" room only to find it held 2 sets...

We stayed here for 2 nights in a private double room with a shared bathroom. Our room was perfect for what we needed with FANTASTIC air conditioning which made us very happy, considering the heat. The room was spotless when we arrived and the bathrooms were as well for our whole stay. In terms of location, we were situated right... More
