“Great service makes all the difference”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2014

Overall, great experience. There are two 14 person rooms, which make for difficult sleep at times, but that's expected. Nice location; cheap food across the street, little bit of night life, 5 min walk from the MRT. The main drawing point was the staff though. They're always helpful, always smiling, funny as hell, and so personable. The second I walked in, I felt welcomed and right at home (great atmosphere too). They're well informed about activities and directions and love to just sit and chat with anyone. Seriously, ask them anything. If they don't know, they'll sit with you and find out. The place is practically spotless, the bathrooms particularly. Great, great place. I would recommend to anyone.

I had a great time when i've booked in Rucksack Inn, the service included breakfast, Mac, Cable TV, and wash machine with low cost, each traveler has their own bed with light and plug, wifi signal good:)

Stayed at Rucksack Inn @ Lavender around mid of Feb 2014. Location central, safe, good and accessible with MRT/Busses. Hostel was very clean, nice with superb staff and atmosphere. All credit to the staff for their exceptional hospitality. An absolute value for money and recommended to everyone who wants to explore Singapore on a budget. Definitely one of the best hostels in Singapore!!!
