Discover a new budget / backpacker hostel in Singapore. Strategically located near to Arab Street, Bugis STreet and Sultan Gate. Close to halal eateries and home of cafe hipsters in singapore. 5 minutes walk to Nicoll Highway MRT but to my mom is like a KM walk. but that's the only option. Bugis MRT is farther. Decent room with double... More

Hello, This is my first stay in 5footway inn. So far so good, the room was too small (i took quad room for 4person) but i think they need some cleaning because the room is smelly (maybe because there is no window, i think smell was coming from the carpet). The public (sharing) bathroom is very clean and good. Breakfast... More

The place is a few minutes away from Nicoll Highway station and also a few walks away from the Sultan Mosque. The room we occupied was clean and simple. Breakfast is self-service and they have unlimited coffee at the pantry. I would recommend this place for those on a tight budget.

My cousin and I luckily spotted a discounted rate online and we immediately booked. We weren't expecting too much because of the low rates and it's a hostel/dormitory. But when we arrive and saw the place and our room, we immediately looked at each other and said we made a good choice. It's a decent place for low budget travelers.... More

It was a pleasant weekend stay at 5footwayinn. It's situated in a very convenient location, clean and cozy. There are 2 MRT stations within walking distance i.e. Bugis station and Nicholl Highway station. There are also many cafes and restaurants nearby if one does not wish to venture too far for a quick bite. Clean towels are provided and the... More

We stayed two nights on early June at this hostel. The room (double room with twin bunk bed) has enough space to walk around. Breakfast was okay but no egg/sausage, only bread, cereal+milk, and fruit. The environment is quiet and it's good to have a rest. But there were electricity blackouts several time during our stay.

Very nice and helpful hotel staff. Unfortunately the rooms don't have windows. It's okay for 1-2 nights but if you would like to stay for more than 2 nights you should think about it. Unfortunately we heard all the time the music from a karaoke bar next to the hotel what was very annoying. The bathrooms are very small but... More

The location is convenience, easy to go to the places we planned and we like the courtyard. Anyway, the carpet in the room is dirty and smelly, it might be caused by the condensation of water / water leaking from the ceiling casing, it's 1 of the reason I guess and the floor of bathroom is always wet. And the... More

The carpet is really dirty. Once barefooted your foot will turn black. Also, coughed uncontrollably when I slept on the bed due to the dust. Expect little privacy as there is an opening at the top of the room where even a soft conversation can be heard outside - you might even hear conversations from other rooms Definitely a good...

Staying in Kampong Glam

Neighborhood Profile
Kampong Glam
This traditionally Malay enclave of Singapore offers an alluring array of shops, cafes, and bars. A walk down Haji Lane offers quirky shopping, while one block over, Arab Street is a treasure trove of brightly colored fabrics, clothing, and Turkish rugs. Stop for a leisurely coffee or cocktail and watch local kids play traditional games along the lane. Also home to the Malay Heritage Center and one of Singapore’s most prominent mosques (Sultan Mosque), Kampong Glam is a must-visit for a tantalizing taste of Malay life in this city.
