“Location + The Basic... and Reasonable Price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

The location is fantastic, just few minutes walk from Chinatown station.
In overall, the room is clean. Especially the bed sheet and pillow cover in white colour and Ikea furniture, make the room looks neat even though it is small.
One thing not so good is the bathroom. I was staying in a 4pax room, with shared bathroom.
The plumbing and water run off don't seems to be sufficient if 3 bathrooms are occupied and used. I was showering with both of my feet soaking in the water for the first night. The next day morning while only 2 persons using the shower, the water running off smoothly.
In summary, it gives you basic thing that you need, and their price is really attractive. :)

Our stay at 5Foot Way was nice, our private room was lovely decorated by cute furnitures, bathroom was lovely as well. Otherwise, the location was great, we could walk to ChinaTown for few minutes. Could easily find out some Chinese reataurants with apecial tastes as well.

Rooms are very clean, with excellent a/c and lockers. Excellent stuff help you every minute of your stay. MRT station is just next to the door of the hostel, so you shouldn't have problems to reach any place you want. Otlichnoe mesto za razumnye dengi!!!

Room Tip: Any room you choose will be quite good. May try private rooms.

This hostel is just amazing!!! Much better than most hostels I've ever been in Europe!! Not to mention that Peggy, one of the workers, was really helpful. I highly recommend this hostel. If I would ever come back to Singapore, I would definitely stay at this place again. I really had a good time in Singapore even though the trip was rather short and fast. In summary, I give 5 stars to this hostel. :)

me and my spouse decided to stay at this hostel after read their reviews on tripadvisor.
we spent one night at their private room. we arrived at 8 pm due to our flight delay. we went straight to china town MRT station from Changi airport. it was not difficult to find this hostel, it's on the right alley after we got out from the station (on pagoda street).

when we arrived,there were some guests who wanted to check in but only one staff at the reception. he must took care one by one and accompany the guests to their room then back to reception desk to help another guest. luckily, this hostel provides WiFi with great connection. so me and my spouse could browsing and check email while we were waiting in the line of guests.
finally our turn to check in, this hostel won't receive card, cash only. (they don't mention it in their confirmation email though..)

after checked in, the staff accompany us to our room. he helped us with our luggage.
our room was on third floor, number 10, a small room with a wooden bunk bed, small lockers, fan, air con, one chair, and without windows. my spouse was not mind so i was too.
he told us the location of bathrooms and toilets, and "the legendary terrace", the dining area where we could have unlimited hot drinks and unlimited drinkable tap water. they also provide a refrigerator if the guests need to keep their food or beverage.

after that, we decided to have dinner. we ate at a seafood restaurant not far from this hostel and went around hostel area. we got back and had shower. the bathroom was clean enough, they placed 2 dispenser (for soap and shampoo).

the air con in our room was automatically off every 30 minutes. I don't know why they programmed it that way, maybe for energy saving. however, that night, we had a decent sleep because of the clean linen and nice mattress.

the following morning, we went to the terrace to see what they served as breakfast. we found out that they provide bread and some jars of jam and a toaster in a table in the middle of terrace. me and my spouse decided to not have breakfast there and just filled our bottle with drinkable tap water. after that, we went to nearest restaurant to have decent breakfast.

overall, we love our stay here. it because we didn't expect too much, so staying at this hostel with its small room and very standard breakfast was enough for us. besides, we only use the room to sleep.. we spent most of our time outside to get around chinatown.

Room Tip: me and my spouse preferred private room instead of dorm room

It's the 6 of us spending 2 nights at 5footway.inn. All females. The rooms we get are small but clean, and also we get window to see outside. The air-conditioner is working well. It's cold. The whole premises was very clean, including the bathroom ! The breakfast can make all people having happy tummies ! The free-flow MILO is my favorite !
The staff is nice. Even they helped us to arrange maxi-cab to drop us at next destination.
And the best part is the location. Neat to MRT, just the real 5foot-walking distance. Souvenir market is there when you open the hostel door. You can find everything there ! Many interesting spots also if you are a travel photographer.
We're having good time there ! Thank you.
