Was traveling alone for the first time and not really sure which hostel to stay at (tho I had listed out a few choices) Went about looking but somehow my gut feeling told me I wanted Rucksack Inn @ Lavender St. Finally ended up there after getting lost quite a few times (in the spirit of adventure, didn't have a...

I stayed at RuckSack Inn for a year together with my new found friends and to tell you the truth, there is nothing like this hostel that offers warmth, comfort and convenience for short and long staying guests. Their receptionists are very friendly and yet maintain professionalism in manning the hostel-a very rare trait for most hostel receptionists. Jacqui, you... More

This place maybe far from the airport, but still easily reached through MRT. The staffs are friendly, and the facilities are good (TV, small library, internet, laundry, private lamp, hair dryer, stand washer). The most useful is the unlimited toast. I can eat anytime! So no need for me to buy more snack from outside. Everytime i am hungry, i... More
