Our trip to Singapore was ver much supported by the staff of Rucksack Inn on Lavender Street on the edge of little India. You get discounted tickets for numerous sights (Zoo, etc.), a detailed explanation what to do, where to go and how to get there and if you have a problem they will be happy to help you out.... More

Solo travel. Stayed from February 19-21, 2015. First time in Singapore as well. The hostel is a long walk from Boon Keng MRT station but definitely it is worth the price and the effort! First, the directions in the website is clear and precise. I found myself in the hostel approximately 10 minutes from Boon Keng. The hostel is located... More

Stayed in a 14 bed dorm with no windows, which made it a bit cave-like and hard to wake up in the mornings without natural light. It was clean, they burn incense in the rooms and bathroom which I liked a lot as it made sure there was no horrible smells. The reception girls were exceptionally friendly and helpful, however...

I chose this hostel based on online reviews and found it to be a good find in pricey Singapore. Conveniently located near Little India, Bugis Street and Kampong Glam, Chinatown is only a few subway stations away, just like the rest of the city's attractions. Public transportation is easily available and the bus stop is just a hop, skip, away.... More

Really enjoyed staying at this hostel - clean, comfortable! And you have coffe/tea and toast with jam available 24h - which is nice! They had good computers to do some research and a nice common area! The only thing is that the rooms don't have windows - but was no problem since we just stayed in the room to sleep.... More

I stayed at this hostel for a week and that was the best stay ever. All the staff are extremely friendly and helpful which made my stay more fun and comfortable. A girl at the reception gave me a cup of iced water when I arrived and that's when I knew my stay at this hostel would be very nice!... More
