The hostel is located in the heart of Chinatown and close to the MRT, which makes it easy to travel around the city. The staff was kind and very helpful. The facilities were clean and comfortable. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone going to Singapore.


Glad we chose to stay at this Hostel. Really friendly staff, very clean and all this in Chinatown, the heart of the city. We'll go back there in case Singapore is calling.


Rucksack Inn Temple Street was exactly as expected. A clean and safe place to sleep for good value for money. Air conditioning worked well, rooms were cleaned often, the showers and bathrooms were in good working order. Staff was friendly and gave good recommendations for attractions in Singapore. The kitchen is always open if you want some tea, toast, and jam. The place is less than 5 minutes walk from the Chinatown MRT. I have never seen a cleaner Chinatown in the world. Fast wireless.

The hostel is really nice. However the room was too small for 6 people. There was nos space for beds and lugagge in the room for six people. The place was really clean. However, you were asked to walk with bare foot including in the restroom which i consider totally inapropriate considering that we were in a hostel.


A decent hostel in a great location. Free bread and coffee 24h! Would stay here again.


Conveniently located in China Town. At walking distance from Parliament and Marina Bay, not even far from Marina Bay Sand Hotel or the Central Finance DIstrict. Friendly staff. Facilities are very clean and have open windows for fresh air. Lots of kaya toast, milk tea and duck around the corner.


Overall good but it's a bit more expensive than some other options in Chinatown and I don't think you get more for the extra dollars. 12 man dorm was very crammed.


Very good location in Chinatown, close to food street, transport and temples. Also very good directions on hostelworld website for getting to the hostel. We were in an 8 bed dorm that was very cramped. The room was better suited to a four bed dorm. Lockers in the corridor are good but can only fit a small bag meaning the dorms were even more cramped with people's luggage. Very loud at night and air-con set very cold in our room. Only stayed one night, not much sleep.


Very friendly staff, great location.


The rooms, showers and toilets are all very small but they are very clean. Its good for a short stay.
