I once stayed at the 5footway.inn Project Chinatown 1 @ Pagoda St. and all the good experiences brought me stay again in this chain hostel. I initially wanted to book the private room with double bed, but there was none in the Project 1, so I book the room in Project 2.

Being in the same area, the location is perfect. Near to bus stops and MRT (though Project 1 is much closer being in the Chinatown MRT entrance area). Easy to find foods. Easy to get last-minute souvenirs.

Personally I think the Project 1 has more homey feeling then Project 2.

I got an upgrade for my private room (got a room with window facing to the alley! A BIG thanks!). There were few stains on sheets, but the room was clean in overall. AC was super cold. Comfy beds and pillows. Fast wifi.

The shared bathroom:
1. there are around 7 or 8 tiny cubicles in the female bathrooms, some are equipped with a shower and a sink, some with toilet and a sink, some only the shower.
2. much smaller than the bathrooms in Project 1.
3. not perfectly clean, esp. during peak hours (I can't blame the hostel).
4. pretty crowded at night, because only some rooms with shower in it.

Service
The staff who handled my bags when I dropped it there before check-in time was an ignorant guy with his smartphone, but the one who checked-in me later was another super friendly guy!

I think the management should consider some rules for those noisy guests. It was pretty annoying trying to sleep with cheerful screams from nearby room. (Plus there was a road construction project in front of the hostel, but they stopped around midnight).

Choose the 5footway.inn Chinatown project 1 in Pagoda street if you can, but this 2nd project is also acceptable.

Room Tip: Ask room with window if possible.

I like the clean white design here, make it simple yet convenience, esp the bathrooms, though at peak hours some may leave it at bad condition. Been staying here for 4 times in the past 2 years and absolutely will come back.

This is not my first time staying in hostel during travelling so I believe I've set a proper expectation on this, but I still feel disappointed.

The room is not bad, sleeping quality I would say OK, what I feel disappointed was the management. I understand this is not a normal hotel, but there should be at least some basic control. During middle of night (about 1am) there were 1-2 families (they know each other, probably Chinese or Malaysian because I hear Mandarin), they allow their children to shout, to run, adults were talking loudly outside, even after I warned them. I've been staying hostel in other region, at least these kind of annoying scenario is controlled by hostel staff, but there isn't any here, and about 7am next day they started become crazy again, so I decided to check out early before getting paranoid.

And this hostel is not really cheap compared with some very low end hotel, I couldn't convince myself to share room with others like this next time.
