This was our first stop on our 2 month travels away from New Zealand, mum travelling with 2 teenage girls. We found Rucksack Inn's website and book direct, 2 nights in triple room, which was a double bed & a set of bunk beds with air conditioning for sig$198, breakfast included, shared bathroom.
Check in was easy & quick, although I did take a copy of my booking email to present. Our room was of a decent size, enough to hold 3 large suitcases & 3 carryon backpacks. We found the airconditioning VERY good & free wifi kept the girls happy, there was also by memory 4 desktops also available in lobby area, free. Bathrooms were always clean, although a couple of times we did have to wait, but not more than 10mins.
Word of warning, hostel is up 2 massive steep flights of stairs, and travelling with 2 teenage daughters with all their luggage, this indeed was very difficult for us to manage, but if you are all good carring up your bags, then for the price, I think it serves the purpose well.
The MRT is very close, under 5 min walk, and we used that to travel everywhere that we needed to go to. Chinatown is about at 15mins walk which we found to be where we purchased our bits & pieces from, take a bottle of water with you, it's hot work walking around, but great to see the sights.
Breakfast was basic, mainly toast & spreads, but as it is available at anytime of the day, this also served us for a snack when we needed it, usual spreads available.
What I enjoyed mostly, was sitting around the breakfast table, and chatting to people from all over the world, during our trip away, we stayed at many many places, but I rank the Rucksack as one of the best friendliest place that I enjoyed chatting to people, the room is basic, not the Hilton (which we did stay at along the way), but as we were out & about, it did the job. We took a taxi to the airport when it was time to leave, sig$25, and we were able to store all our bags in the morning in a large luggage room, although the room is open, they always had someone on the front desk, until our late evening flight out of Singapore, this was very handy.
