I was sexually harrassed in this hostel and that is a very horrifying experience for me. The good thing is, the hostel staff said that they will review the cctv footage. But i didn't hear anything from them after that. I hope this will never happen to anyone ever again.

Dear Hetty, Thank you for taking time to share your feedback with us regarding your recent stay at 5footway.inn Project Chinatown 1. Your feedback meant a lot to us and we will definitely share this with our staff. Regarding the cleanliness issue with our toilets and bathrooms, we seek your kind understanding that during this peak season, our turn around rate is very quick and as a result, our normal cleaning schedule may not be able to cope. Nevertheless, we will notify our housekeeping staff and work harder at tightening our procedures to maintaining the cleanliness of our property at all times. Once again, thank you for your feedback and we hope to welcome you again soon.

Dear Jason, Thank you for contacting us. Our 5footway.inn hostels do have a microwave however, not a stove-top. Other facilities include a fridge as well but guests will have to tagged it under their own name as it is shared among other guests that are staying in the hostel as well. In addition, water dispensers and coffee machines are available 24/7 at the common areas. We hope the above information clarifies. Should you require any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.
