My boyfriend and i stayed in a private double.

There were two single beds which were comfy, a bedside table, two bedside lamps, air con and a place to hang clothes.

I am a light sleeper and i slept ok, despite being the toom next to the dorm. We got woken up a couple of times by people coming and going but that was to be expected.

The hostel has shared bathroom facilities, there are 2 toilets and 2 showers, all of which are clean. We had no problems waiting for the showers as we were up around 7 or 8 each day.... and they were always hot!

There is a shared kitchen with micro wave, toaster fridge/freezer... and there is free water/tea/coffee along with toast with butter/jam/peanut butter avaliable all day!!

In the lounge there are sofas, tv, wiis and i think playstations too and free wi fi, along with the use of 3 pcs

We did not use the service but they provide washing and drying of clothes.

The location is fantastic!! Right at clarke quay, and is so easy to get around everywhere on the mrt!!

Would def stay here again

I stayed in Rucksack inn 2, located a few doors down from the original rucksack inn. Its a nice hostel, very clean, nice staff, free tea and toast, 24 hour reception, free internet, excellent location; just across the road from Clarke Quay and the mrt station.

The only issues maybe the noise. There is a tacky pub next door to it blaring out awful karaoke until 3am, sometimes later than that. So you definately wont be getting any sleep before then. It can be heard all over the hostel. Very annoying if you want to up early to tour around.
Also you have to pay for towels and any laundry you want to wash. Rooms are a little small as are the bathrooms. And there are only 4 computers so you may have to wait your turn.

Overall, an alright place.

Definitely the best location in town for a Hostel. You are literally downtown close to all the sightseeing attractions like The Merlion Statue, Clarke Quay, Boat Quay, The Sands Hotel, River Walk, Malls, Chinatown, MTR ( rail system ) and much more.

The staff is very helpful and very attentive. The girl at the counter interrupted her dinner just to show me around which I insisted she dint but she still did.

The place is neatly clean. Restrooms, common areas, lobby and other surroundings are spotless. They pay attention to detail.

I recommend this Hostel to any traveler looking for comfort and budget at the same time combined with the greatest location around.

Stayed for 4 nights for the Grand Prix. Wanted a private room but they were booked up way in advance so went into the dorm - 30 beds. There were a few people coming in late but overall we enjoyed our stay and the service was great - always a friendly smile when you returned from a day out and the free internet was a bonus too!

rucksack inn is what you dream of when entering a hostel. it is like you are coming home. the hotel is the best starting point for a short stay in singapore. next to nightlife area clarke quay and about ten minute walk to city hall. MRT station is 2mins away. the hostel is very clean, nice rooms also the dorm is a good option, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. they have shared bathrooms but they are like private ones. breakfast is included the hole day just make yourself a tea in the afternoon. They also have 3 computers for internet and free wifi. if you search the perfect hostel in singapore, you found it.

I showed up at Rucksack without a reservation, and despite being full, they were able to rearrange some bookings and find a bed for me for 2 nights. The bunk was good and didn't wobble, and despite the dorm being huge, it was reasonably quiet and well ventilated. When there were some girls talking at night, the staff came in and got them to shut up. The location is awesome, being easy to get to from the airport on the MRT, and within walking distance of everything.

The downside was that the common area was really small and always full, and you had to walk past reception and through the kitchen to get to the bathrooms/showers.

Compared to the dozens of hostels I've stayed in in Australia and New Zealand, I didn't really find this place to be anything special or amazing value. It was good overall, no doubt, and I recommend it, but I don't understand the reviews calling it the best hostel ever.

The facilities were just great, the bathroom were clean, the small kitchen was great to socialize with other backpackers, the price was cheap. Felt like home. Very recommended for everybody who's planning to backpack to Singapore. Don't forget taking a picture of yourself in front of the red wall :)
