Hostel is clean and a good choice if you want to stay and visit the Arab quarter. It is just a few minutes away from shops and well priced restaurants with very tasty food. If you would like to be closer to down town and in a more vivid area, I would rather recommend five stones hostel.


Nice Staff that loves helping peoples. Great Time there!

Ruchsack inn Lavender ..... I stay there for almost six day and it is very nice and clean and the staff is excellance and very helpful ... Thank to Elina, Gina, Alvin ........... A nice and comfortable stay at Rucksack Lavender .........


The common room is often full of staff members or their family during the day. Their pod dorms are pretty nice, with curtains. Their regular dorm is a bit shabby and has an overwhelming smell of citronella. I wasn't impressed with some members of the staff. Someone accidentally gave me a better price and cheap upgrade, but the next night, they demanded more money. After threatening to leave, they let me stay in the same room. Very awkward after that.


really nice with the seperate sleeping cabins. staff friendly. Toast and marmalde / peanut butter always available.


Rucksack Inn is a great hostel. The staff are lovely and friendly. When I arrived Alina took me through the tourist map and told me all the best places to visit so I could plan my days. They offered discount on main attractions at the time of my stay. Need to take MRT to main places/ attractions which is average $1.70 one way (Singapore dollars). I enjoyed my stay here hi to Rahma and Alvin too!! :0)


On my first night, they put me on the top bunk, which I do not like, because at night I have to go to the bathroom often, I was afraid to fall and hurt myself. The next day I requested the bottom bed, a little better. The staff are helpful, but I will not stay in a hostel again, not what I expected.
