“Good budget hostel for Singapore”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

Stayed here for two nights in a bunk room for 2 people with Air Con. The rooms are tiny, but you get over that pretty fast. The common areas are pretty cool. They have wifi everywhere, and two Macs if you need to use them.

Breakfast is free, a little too basic would be my only criticism Hot drinks and water available 24/7 on the first floor. Staff were helpful.

The greatest advantage of this hostel is its location, right in Chinatown, 30 second walk from the RT, 5 seconds to the shops, and 2 minutes from the Chinatown food street. And while this is close to everything, there was no issue with noise.

Highly recommend this place to the budget traveler. FYI no where in Singapore is cheap, this is budget for Singapore.

Room Tip: If you are a couple, book early and get a double room rather than a twin room with bunk beds.

It started from the very nice and welcoming front desk staff that greeted us, showed around the hotel facility, and of course led us to our room. We stayed in the squad room type, meaning that there are 4 single beds for each of us. The room design, and also the hotel, is very modern just like those fancy hotel. The amenities in the bedroom are very complete. The wi-fi is very fast in connection. There is also a facility of 24-hrs-free-drink for tea, coffee, and even the HK style milk tea. The breakfast is just very simple DIY toasts but it's ok since we wanted to try the local eatery later.

About the location, this hotel is near the Sofitel Project Ponte 16, thus, you can use the free shuttle of Sofitel from the ferry terminal. It is also only 15 minutes walk to famous Senado Square. This is the best and the most valuable budget hotel that I ever found in all of my trips. Hopefully, 5footwayinn will open more in other countries.

I stayed 2 nights in this hostel. Everything was very clean and the staff very useful. The terrace was not that good though. It had a lot of stuff around that did not make it look nice. Very basic breakfast and not enough cups for everybody. They have a coffee machine which was great. Good wifi and location, in the heart of Chinatown and only 10 minutes walking to Clark Quay area. The bathroom were next to the terrace so you had to walk all through it with the other guest around. The living room downstairs was very cozy. Not really a place to meet other travellers.

ROOM - We stay at female twin dormitory, the room is small but clean, wash room is separate.

LOCATION - Few steps away from Chinatown MRT Station, very strategic location.

Our room is very near to the breakfast area so is very noisy in the morning, the hostel is more suitable for friends or solo stay, not recommend for couple or family.

My trip now is with 4 people and the room was supposed to be a 4-bed room but we got a free upgrade to a private 2-bed for 2 room since the 4-bed room available is not in a good condition. Awesome service.

The room is clean, the bathroom is quite spacious and clean as well. One sad thing is one of our room have a leak so when it rains, the floor becomes wet creating a puddle. Other than that, everything else is great.

Recommended for anyone who want to have an enjoyable stay in Singapore.

I spent 4 nights at 5footwayinn and that was all right. Rooms and bathrooms are clean. The location is great as you are in the middle of chinatown with everything around accessible by walking. Staff members are friendly and the bottle of cold water is really cheap !!!
