First time staying here. My review is based on hostel/dorm standard. The cleanliness is good, altho a bit dirty near toilet area due to renovation. The standard 4-bed dorm is clean and NO smell. I would stay again next time and also recommend to others. But the staff are terrible as usual. They do what they are supposed to do,... More

If you plan to spend most of your time in singapore exploring, i will recommend this hostel. Location is great, near mrt and hawkers food centre. I booked private room with 4 bunkbeds. 3 adults n 2 children. The children can share bed with us but they still need to pay for the price of 1 bed. Room is quiet... More

I don't understand the good reviews. We got bitten up relentlessly by bed bugs to the point that we couldn't sleep there. We tried to cancel our second night, but they refused to refund our money - I'll continue fighting though. I know it's a hostel, but the living conditions were well below reasonable expectations. Also, they were doing construction... More

Great location, clean and well-lit rooms, soft and comfy beds and pillows, pretty nice breakfast, good and affordable rates, excellent service from the staff. (A staff named Michael was very helpful, courteous, and nice!). Very pleasant experience in this hostel!

We stayed 2 separate times at this hotel over the course of one week in May 2014. The staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean. However do not expect windows in any of the rooms. There are no towels but can be hired at a small cost. There are shared showers and toilets. They were always clean... More

Very good location, close mrt so it is easy to travel to everywhere. All the staffs are very friendly, breakfast is fine, but specially free tea or coffee all day. The room is quite small, the toilet and bathroom need to be renovated. We will come back here if we travel to Singapore next time.

I stayed here for about 5 days in mid-April. It's a great location, and really close to the MRT and Smith St for eating, but the hostel is pretty average. The beds are clean and comfortable, but the rooms are definitely on the small side and in a six bed dorm, you can stand one person between bunks and that's... More

5 foot way This hotel is conveniently located, but otherwise was a huge disappointment. I expected any room in singapore to be expensive, but this place is very bad by any standards. The sheets were dirty on arrival. The bathrooms are filthy at any hour. They have two toilets for a 42 bed establishment, and since both toilets contain showers... More

Found the hostel pretty clean, good facilities and though it was compact for 4 girls in one room it managed to be doable. Quite like the Chinatown area, handy for the open top tour bus (bus stop a few shops away.) Found the staff helpful, enjoyed my stay in Singapore.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Project Chinatown 2 is the latest addition to the 5footway.inn brand of hostels. Tucked in the quaintest corner of Chinatown, adjoining the laidback, colourful Ann Siang Hill area where you can find the coolest pubs, cafes and the occasional art galleries, Project Chinatown 2 promises to bring yet another unique experience to our other properties. Project Chinatown 1 is all about the action Chinatown has to offer; Project Sultan is about showcasing local and regional artists to our well-travelled guests. Project Chinatown 2 aims to bring to life the quaint, back-alleyway feel of yesteryear Singapore, with the weekend flea market at the back lane. You can take for granted the same modern facilities that is synonymous with 5footway.inns: Fastest WIFI throughout the premises, free breakfast spread complete with fruits and fresh milk, comfortable anti-dustmite beds, individual storage space as well as a clean, safe environment. To top it off, all our beds come with individual universal power sockets (no need for that adapter!) ... more   less
