“Nice place to stay within budget”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

The place is nice, centric and easy to find. Is located near the china town, with good connection with the metro line. Although there are a few convenience stores nearby, in China Town you have an open market and diverse different stores. The room was small but making use of the little space and quite clean. The turn down is that there was now window. Male toilet/showers was most of the times smelly and not that clean, which can be improved. The staff was very kind, nice and helpful.

Hi JDE06, thank you for your kind review. We are increasing the cleaning schedule of the toilets to ensure the cleanliness. We do hope that host your next stay with us. If you are looking at rooms with windows, you may want to consider the superior rooms next time. Also, you may check with our reception crews for details on the upgrade.

The location is near MRT Chinatown line.
Just notice that you're on the path to Pagoda street.
When you see chinatown market, just go ahead until you found the road, then you'll see
'5footway inn'
Walk a little bit to the traffic light just cross the road and you're finished.

The staff are so helpful, nice and warm.
Even the room is small but it's clean and comfortable.
They have desk lamp for each bed.

free breakfast, and coffee, milo, tea tarik.

I recommended for you who are in first traveling singapore.
Because this hostel are quiet easy to find !!

The location is quite central. Transport to anywhere in Singapore is easy. The room is rather small but clean. The bathroom is very small, a little bit more space would be nice. The staff are friendly and helpful. I would recommend my friends to stay here.

We had an exhausting experience last night, knowing that we arrived in the hotel past 2. The unfortunate episode was, the room we reserved, someone has still checked in. I thank the collaborative effort of the team (jie and gin) who managed to book us an additional night here in 5wfi. On the other side of the coin, Natra saved the upturned experience into a very accommodating and excitement-filled stay (moments are yet to come). We still have a booked accommodation in 5wfi. I wish that the treatment that we got from being warm, well-deserved treatment and friendly guidance will continue throughout our FIRST Singapore vacation. Nothing beats the memories made with smiles through the people we were acquainted with when we are on travel.

Room Tip: Established and close to tourist spots

Hi AdamValdevilla,

Thank you for reviewing your stay with 5footway.inn Project Chinatown 2.

We understand your frustration of not getting a room in the middle of the night. However, as stated on our website that the check in time is at 3pm. If you would like to have a room upon arrival, it is strongly recommended to book for the night before. Otherwise, we do have shower facilities and lounge for you to rest before the check in time. Nonetheless, do email us your flight details when you are returning the next time and we would love to further assist you in your accommodation planning.

Lastly, we are glad that you had a memorable experience with us and we look forward to having you back soon.

Stayed here for two nights and paid exactly SGD192.00. I was quite happy because the cleanliness met my standard, but I was also a bit shocked to see how small the room was. My sister and I literally bumped into each other a lot during our stay. Not good. The bathroom was also very tiny, it was impossible for us not to make the entire space wet. The air conditioner worked perfectly and the blanket was comforting. All in all we had a good sleep.
I can't say anything about breakfast though, since we missed it two days in a row. The pantry was always packed with people due to its limited space.
5footway.inn Project Chinatown 2 is located across Pagoda Street, close to Chinatown MRT Station, Chinatown Heritage Centre, Sri Mariamman Temple and lots of souvenir shops.

We stayed in Room 1 and it was perfect for our situation - having 2 kids under 7 years old. While the room was small this was to be expected - and honestly wasn't a problem seeing as we were out most of the day and got back around the kids bed time anyway. Free breakfast was a real bonus as was the reasonable rates for washing/drying clothes. The reception cafe is great for escaping the heat and a good change of scenery from the room. All the staff were very helpful and accomodating - especially Xin Fang and Natra who were at reception anytime we needed to ask for some local knowledge. Being that it is almost impossible to book a 4 person room in Singapore without paying exhorbitant price for a suite - or booking 2 rooms - this place was a great solution and enabled us to have an economical holiday .. more $ for shopping ! Bathrooms were clean and served their purpose, i was wary having 2 kids how shared bathrooms and showers would go but the vibe of the hostel is calm (rather than party central) so it all worked out well. Thanks 5footway Chinatown 2 !!

Room Tip: 4 bed private room No.1 was airy and light thanks to windows on 2 sides and even though the street i...
