We spent the Holy week at Rucksack and enjoyed our stay. The staff is friendly and accommodating even if we arrived 2am. The room is clean, air condition system is ok and ambiance is very cozy. The shared bathroom at the 2nd flr was clean but the water from cubicle 1 to 2 are flowing to the last cubicle so...

This is my first review on trip.advisor as this place inspired me to review somewhere as it was so good. The staff were really welcoming from the moment I arrived in the morning after a long flight from the UK. To be greeted by Carole at reception. I had to wait to check in but got a free cup of...

I've nothing bad to say about Rucksack Inn. Super freindly, know-it-all, staff. Great rooftop, especially for a small party. Good facilities - wifi, laundry service. Overall, way better that expected!

Green Kiwi Backpacker Hostel had changed their name to Rucksack Inn, but when I booked through Hostelworld, I was not informed about that. I searched for the place for about half an hour with my heavy backpack. other than that, the internet line is not stable.

Some bus stops are around the hostel. You just need to cross the road. If you're just ok with mrt in Singapore, you have to walk about 1 km to reach lavender station (same line as mrt to airport). The room is just ok. Enough space to put your luggage (no locker in bedroom). The lighting was so poor. If...

1st of all they should update the site, it still says GreenKiwi, so ended up looking for it at different place, the place is pretty far from MRT, not so ideal, the rooms are confusing and didn't a get a good welcome.

I recommend this place for everyone. I stayed 3 nights in a mixed dorm for 14 people. The bed was nice, staff was really helpful, room was clean, toilets and showers was clean, breakfast simple but good, rooftop really nice, it was curtains for the bed, lockers in the room and a near the bus and MRT. I loved this...
