“Fantastic hostel in the heart of Singapore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2014 via mobile

This review is after my 2nd stay in the same hostel. And the reason I came back, is because it had everything that you would need within walking distance. Provided a friendly relaxed atmosphere. Attentive and helpful staff.

If I were to return for a 3rd time, I will most definitely be using the hostel again.

Thanks to all the staff who made it so easy to write this review.

I stayed at 5footway.inn Project Chinatown for 2 days to do a little sightseeing in Singapore before continuing my journey to Australia.
I booked the single loft room (number 7 in the 73A pagoda st. building) and was more than satisfied with my accommodation.
5footway.inn Project is in the heart of Chinatown, right next to the train station (making travel easy and accessible).
The staff are extremely friendly and the other guests where friendly too (which helped me as I was travelling solo).
5footway.inn Project include breakfast at either reception or the terrace in 63A pagoda. This was really nice with inclusion of cereal, toast and spreads as well as fruit. It was also nice to have access to a coffee maker (latte, cappuccino and other choices).
5footway.inn Project Chinatown was clean, cost effective, comfortable (The aircon was brilliant and needed as the weather was hot and humid when I arrived) and very safe (you are provided with a lockable cupboard for your valuables)
Overall, I had a very enjoyable stay and would definitely recommend 5footway.inn Project Chinatown. I have no doubt that when I return to Singapore, I will definitely be staying here again!

Good communal area with Mac computers. Reasonable breakfast including fruit, toast, cereal, hot drinks. Rooms are clean although a bit small. Noise depends on where you are located in the building. In an ideal location right next to MRT station. Helpful staff.

The hostel was located soo close to Chinatown MRT, which is a great location, and the chinatown food centre is delicious and also only a few steps away. The rooms were nice enough, no double beds in the private room, just a bunk bed, but that's understandable. The staff were extrememly helpful, giving us lots of information on what to do.

There is a few separate buildings, and in our building, the main issue we had was that there is only 2 bathrooms, and four showers. Except the bathrooms are in the same room as the shower, and were often full. So there were numerous times where there was an extrememly long wait for using the toilet. I often went to the other building in the middle of the night to use the bathroom. It was inconvenient, but apart from that i had a wonderful stay and would stay there again.

Room Tip: There are separate bathrooms in the building near reception.
