“Perfect in every way”
Reviewed November 8, 2011

We stayed here in November 2011 and it is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. The staff are so helpful and friendly, the bathrooms are literally spotless and the bedrooms are a great size. The location is also great as you are not even a 5 minute walk from Clarke Quay MRT station and buses run from either end of the street. If you really wanted to walk to main attractions the maximum you would have to walk is 25 minutes but trust me in the heat you will want to take the MRT.

I have quite high standards when it comes to hostels and this is 5* and I have no doubt that I will stay here again when I return to Singapore.

This hostel lives up to the cleanliness of this nation. So expect a spotless clean hostel unlike the those rubbish [...] holes in Malaysia and Thailand. I have stayed in several hotels in the city and this hostel is a great choice if you wanna cut your budget. I got a room with two bunk beds, i suggest you take this against the dormitory for a lot of obvious reasons.

Ruck sack is along Hongkong street and this is a 5 minute walk or virtually across the Central station which is a mall and the mrt station, it is also called Clark quey station. It may not be located along Orhcard rd but city's action at night is right here at Clark Quey with all the bars and restaurants. I really saved a lot of money on my lodging here during my long trip without compromising the convenience.

They also have a troop of young friendly staff.

Oh, and don't take the tours ads of the hotel, it's wayyy expensive. So you just hopt on the train and go wherever.

Rucksack Inn 2 was our first stop on your south east asia tour. We haven't done much of research but RI2 seemed like a place that suited us. We slept in both a double room and a dorm due to our last minute booking. But both rooms are just fine. In fact, simple but modern and very clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There was always someone cleaning and looking after things. Free breekie all day long (toast and coffee/tea). The street where RI2 is located isn't really what you'd looking for but it's very central and therefore very convenient.
Looking back after almost 3monts of traveling, RI2 was a great pick and we can highly recommend it to you!

it was grand prix f1 weekend 2011,when we stay here.great friendly service,and advise.fast internet,.Our quad room was a bit tight,4mx4m,with 2 bunk beds,no window,but very sound proof,its was on the 3rd floor,staff did helps us with our bags to our room..bathroom was all new and very good.large kitchen and lounge area.5 mins walk to clarke quay mrt at central shopping centre.At central shops,outside there is the river quay,where you can take a boat ride tour or water taxi.We loved this area as there was heaps of resturants to eat at.So l can say rucksack inn 2 is at a very good location.Taxi ride from airport to rucksack cost for 4p was $20,00 SD,so cheap,but he was very rude.Taxi ride back to airport was better Only one negetive comment was it cost me $60.00 AUD extra to transfer a 1 nights deposit to their singapore bank from australia.Normally l would use website like wotif.etc,but everything was booked out and rucksack only deal with cash ,no credit card facility. l would highly recommend rucksack inn 2 to all ,who wishes to stay.

upon arriving at the ruck sack inn 2 my first thoughts after seeing the small front door and uncarpeted stairs was "this looks like a bad choice. Couldn't have been more wrong.
The staff were very helpfull. our double room was basic but spotlessly clean and very good air cond. The shared showers were also modern, clean and a strong hot shower. The position was perfect, close to Boat and Clark Keys. I'm close to 60 years of age and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again

Loved the feel of the hostel, value for money , clean , friendly ,helpful , adjustable and understanding staff. 24hrs breakfast was very helpful at odd times of the day & Centrally located. The rooms very small difficult to keep all luggage along with you but very very clean.
Overall loved the experience will come back and stay in singapore at same place and no where else. Thanks Rucksack Inn 2..:)

I would highly recommend to stay at Rucksack Inn 2 only because of its central location ( near China Town, Boat Quay, Clarke Quay), affordable clean and comfortable rooms and great service.

We stayed for 2 nights and we really enjoyed the hospitality of the place. We took a double room apartment with 1 extra bed..Rooms are small but good for the price we stayed.

There is 24hrs breakfast..thats cool..so if u are really hungry just grab some bread toast it and eat with peanut butter..or jam.

In addition ED provided us with good hints and tips and free maps to go in and around the town and low cost (Singapore is really expensive so his advice was very helpful).

In addition there is a nice lounge area where u can chill see TV play playstation..take a guitar play some melody or even chit chat with other backpackers.for their experience around singapore..

Great stay and highly recommendable!
Regards
Haresh Bhatia

Room Tip: Highly suggested to make a 1 complete room booking if u are in a group.
