Clean place, but noisy. Friendly staff. But if you wanna sleep, do not go here. Bathroom and toilet are good, but towels not included room price. Breakfast is toast and coffee or tea, coffee and tea is aveilable all day, that is good.

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.

Our 14-bed-dorm was like most other dorms. Some of the bunk beds were placed very (too) near to each other, ours was squeaking and the aircondition was way too cold. Mattresses were alright though and every bed had a little basket to place things inside and its own reading light which was quite cool. Breakfast: toast, peanut butter, strawberry jam,...
