They refused to issue me a refund, and a week later I was billed again. Then they told booking.com I never showed up, I clearly talked to reception... More

After reading the great reviews on TripAdvisor I was quite disappointed when I arrived at 5footin. It is not a bad hostel, but there is nothing extraordinary or excellent about it. Plusses: great location central in Chinatown and close to the metro, clean (but small) room, ok staff. Minusses: dirty and smelly toilets, poor facilities and opportunities to meet other... More

The first main reason I choose these property is because it's very close to MRT Chinatown, moreover I've had stayed at 5footway.inn Bugis before and I was very satisfied with Bugis one. Fortunately I only stayed for 1 night at 5footway.inn Chinatown. My bed number 13.1, just imagine to sleep 2 meters away in front of AirCon (i can't turn... More

I cannot praise the staff working here enough to be honest. They approachable and... More

We booked 5footway Inn past midnight April 5 on my birthday as we had an early flight the next morning and in transit. The booking form automatically booked us for April 6 (because it was passed midnight). Upon arrival to 5footway Inn we were met with a sign that told us the reception was down the block from the stated... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown is a classic combination of colorful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
