I booked a room in this place because I wanna try to sleep in a hotel when Im in Singapore ;) but not in an expensive way (I always stayed in Hostel when I went to Spore). Overall, the room is okay. Less amenities (the hotel only provided shampoo and shower gel). No hairdryer (while rucksack's hostel provides it). Wifi...

Hotel is in a very good location. Right next to the metro station with 2 metro lines. Isn't a noisy place. Rooms are small but big enough for pleasent stay. Staff there is polite and helpful. You can get a free coffee.

If you want to experience the local culture and amazing attractions of Singapore then this is the best places to stay. The best part about this hotel is its decor which is inspired from the Rex cinema which is one of the oldest cinema of Singapore. I loved this place a lot and will definitely come here once again.

Location is great - the Rucsack Inn is very close to the Litttle India MRT and its bustling community, and to several cheap eats, hawker centres, etc. It's also a pretty quiet street, considering the location, and our room was well sound proofed from outside noise. So...a plus point. We did book a Zen Room and there was no sign...

For an Inn, I think the hotel has good standard. The room and the bathroom are clean. The hotel design is unusual but interesting, cinema :) The location is perfect because it is near MRT Little India and various restaurants and hawker food. I recommend people to stay here. One thing that can be improved is the front desk officer....

Stone's throw away from the Little India MRT station exit (Exit A). Got a room upgrade when I checked in (to be fair, my booking months in advance might have something to do with that), so it was a nice surprise. Not having to pay a refundable deposit for the key card was a first for me. The cinema theme...
