    Great location and friendly staff. We booked a double room which had no window which was weird. You felt a bit claustrophobic after being in there for a while. Downstairs showers need a bit of love, a bit mouldy and dated but upstairs ones are much better. Limited facilities for cooking but plenty of cheap places around to eat. Free Coffee and breakfast was good. Roof terrace was lovely.

    Average rooms, a curtain around bed would be nice but otherwise all fine. A simple breakfast and drinking water/tea/coffee always available which is great. The staff were always helpful and discount tickets for attractions are available and lots of info about singapore. Not much going on in area but little india is a walk away and the hostel is close to a downtown metro station which is so easy to use and gets you to the heart of singapore quickly. I met many nice people here to explore with.

    Good hostel, friendly and helpful staff. Ask them whatever you want. Quite a distance from the city, but 4min walk to the substation, so easy. Close to food courts too. Good atmosphere, good facilities and great AC in rooms.

    I stayed here twice. The first time I was in the room adjacent to the reception area. The locker was big. But the unisex toilets and showers (2 each) were very small and really were a joke (not funny though when you tried to use them). 👎 Most people just did not bother to use them Also, there were no private dressing rooms. So, you were forced basically to sleep, Change, wash and toilet in a totally unisex environment .On my second visit, I got a room next door. Toilets and showers - good. 👍

    We booked to stay at Rucksack inn for 3 nights but had to find an alternative hostel after one night. The room was very noisy throughout the whole night and the atmosphere made us feel unsafe (arguments between fellow travellers about a/c, general rudeness and unfriendliness). The facilities were limited, 2 showers with doors that didn’t lock properly and not enough space for breakfast. The location was worse than expected. But staff were friendly and the roof terrace was nice at night.

Rucksack Inn @Lavender Street (Green Kiwi) says

I'd say the most unique feature of our hostel is the rooftop garden. It's big, it's lush, and it's a great place to hang out, especially in the evenings when it's cooler. We can't help that it's hot in Singapore during the day, but you can sunbathe if you like.

Also, our breakfast puts us ahead of the rest. We provide a variety of spreads and breakfast lasts till 12.. or later! So you can sleep in! We also provide complimentary all day coffee and tea.

Singapore is quite a small island, with excellent public transport, and nothing is very far. We're in the city area, easily accessible from all the main tourist areas. We have the famous Lavender Street hawker centre just across the road, with heaps of cheap local food. I'd recommend two must-see free things: the URA's Singapore city gallery (three floors of scale models of the city) by day, and the four sections of Singapore River (Clarke Quay, Boat Quay, Marina Bay, Gardens by the Bay) by night.
