As what my daughter wrote on the wall, Rucksack Inn @ Lavender Street "ROCKS". We stayed there for 2 nights and we are a total of 13 people in our group. When we checked in on June 21, 2013, the Manager/Co-Owner Elena and staff John welcomed us with an excellent hospitality - provided us drinks and our rooms were already... More

Choose Rucksack Inn @ Lavender after reviewing many hostels, and the reason was it is the nearest location to Changi Airport. Book the bed via email quite late (a night before arriving SG) but May amazed my with her quick response for the price and other useful information. Stayed here for 4 nights, was quite impressive with the environment. Room/bathroom/toilet... More

Although the private double room is small, the space is enough for two people to sleeping in it. :P We arrived the hotel in night and the staff was still very friendly and introduce all the facilities to us. All the facilities are very clean and maintained very well. I like the smell in the lobby very much. However, the... More

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
