It is clean. Receptionist, Ken is friendly and patient to answer our questions. In addition, he is helpful with us that we are appreciated so much. Thus, we are happy to stay at Rucksack Inn. However, it is quite difficult to step up stair for women, so please arrange women to sleep at bed 1 if possible.

I booked this hostel via hostelworld.com and I was amazed that they do not require a downpayment for your booking. The receptionist can speak english (accent) well so no worries about asking directions.
