This place was super cheap so I didn't come with great expectations. Came with two girlfriends for two nights and it was really pretty clean, and every bed has its own light and PowerPoint. Hostel is 24hours which is useful, located near many mrt stations to get around and the staff members were very helpful, calling taxi for us and... More

Excellent hostel! Very short walk from Rochor MRT, friendly and helpful staff (thanks Sasha), dorm bed had a little reading light, power outlet and a shelf! (seems a simple thing but extremely practical). Someone always cleaning so bathroom was very clean 👍. Aircon always worked at night, comfy bed. HIGHLY recommended 😆

Checked in with friends. The room and shared bathroom is clean. Free breakfast, like buffet breakfast. :) Front desk is Pinoy (Super friendly!) Walking distance from mustafa centre and Bugis Market. Also 2 blocks away from Rochor Station. Restaurant around the area are either 24 hours or open til 3 am.

That was my first solo trip and also first birthday trip as a present for myself. I looked up and found this nice hostel for the good price at first. The staff was quite cold when I checked in but it doesn't matter much to my feeling to the hostel. The convenience you could see of great kitchen, warm atmosphere... More

Cleanish room and toilets, and priced cheaply. Perfectly adequate for a brief stay. AirCon in the room had little or no impact, Windows weren't insulated, and so the room stayed very hot all night. This led to many sleepless nights.

Hostel itself was very clean, and staff was super friendly and helpful although the hostel lacked atmosphere. Most the guests seemed to be locals consisting of middle aged South and southeast Asian males and full Asian families. Location was good right next to the subway and little India. Breakfast was included but consisted of only toast.

The location is quite strategic (5 minutes walk from Rochor MRT station), you can walk to the famous Mustafa center and Bugis Village. The bed's price is affordable for backpacker since I got 13 sgd per night for a bed... More

The location is perfect, close to the metro station 2 minutes walking, don't stay in the room during the day because AC it's only on during the night, and the smell of the guests in the room, mixed with the hot inside of the room, make a bad mix. the beds are comfortables, there's free "all you can eat" breakfast...

Low price ain't always come with low quality. That's what I know bout Footprints. They have a really neat&tidy dorm, clean bathroom (they even have hairdryer like in 3stars hotel!), movie room, internet full access in everyfloor, cctv so you feel secure, a very warm-hearted staffs and you can have it all for only bout SGD20/night/person. No doubt I'll stay... More

Staying in Little India

Neighbourhood Profile
Little India
With a strong local Indian community, this pocket of Singapore can feel like another place and time. Wander past traditional barbershops while local residents in brightly coloured saris patronize retailers from decades past. Peruse streets lined with colourful shops as the aroma of curry tempts you to indulge. Listen to the Bollywood music echoing from storefronts and take in the stalls selling bright flowers, fabrics, and spices. At the 24-hour, four-level Mustafa Shopping Centre, you can shop through the night and find everything from pharmacy and grocery items to Bollywood DVDs and diamond necklaces. Singapore’s Little India offers a colourful, lively taste of the subcontinent and is well worth the visit.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to Footprints Backpacker Hostel - a HOME away from home! Looking for comfortable, clean and affordable accommodation in a friendly, cozy and relaxed environment? You have come to the right place. Footprints Backpacker Hostel is conveniently located right smack in the middle of the culturally rich Little India, the centre for Singapore's Indian community. This ethnic quarter is packed with interesting treasures awaiting to be discovered. Retaining much of its authentic charm and distinct identity, this district is not what you would expect of the generally rather ‘sanitized’ Singapore. It is one of the most colourful and exotic places to visit on the island. The streets are dotted with small shops and eateries and if you are a bargain-hunter, cheap-gets are aplenty. ... more   less
