When in Singapore, and on a budget, this is a great place to stay. Even if you are not on a budget, it is still a great place to stay. Elina and Rahma is super friendly and really cares. Cozy and comfortable.

It's the best hostel I stayed in Singapore! The stuff is very friendly and helpful and the rooms are clean. Tea, coffee and bread are for free. You can also use the PC's and you have free WiFi access. I think it's the best hostel you can get for budget backpackers.

I stayed 3 nights at Rucksack Inn and thought it was a great place. The staff and other guests make you feel right at home as soon as you arrive. The whole place smells of lemongrass and is really refreshing after a long day of travel. I stayed in the big 14 bed dorm and I was worried at first,... More

We stayed here for 6 nights and the experience is highly recommended with affordable price and friendly staff. Clean environment and they had a newly built rooms for 8 persons where my family and friends stayed. Rucksack Inn Lavender is highly recommended! Thanks for the warm welcome. See you for our next trip to Singapore.

Staff here were so helpful and gave us great tips on things to do in Singapore. Location is perfect with near access to bus, mrt and some great food centres. The room was a little small with no windows but very clean.

Stayed here for 3 nights on a visa trip and must say it is one of the best hostels I have stayed in. It is so fresh and it kind of feels like you own living room. The staff is very friendly and helps you out with finding everything to visit on the maps and gives tips on where to... More

The staff is great and very hospitable- offered us water right when we arrived. Very clean. Cozy common space but enough room to relax in. Although not right in the action it's close to an MRT stop and buses frequently stop in front of the building. One less appealing thing is the noisy renovation/construction going on next-door early in the... More
