Reviewed October 11, 2011

The staff is friendly and so helpful here. Michelle will show you around and tell you all kinds of local things to do. The rooms are average, the showers are nice and hot with high pressure. This is a great place to go to meet other backpackers and is in a good location in Little India.

After arriving at Footprints, i was quite impressed. The hostel was clean, facilities are ok, and the staff were friendly. Only after the first night when at 11PM, people check in to our room (lights on, unpacking etc.), next was 1AM, same thing. This carried on through out the night at 3am 6am etc.

After complaining to the staff, they say that have no rooms specially for 24hr check in guests, and after speaking to other people at the hostel they all have the same complaints.

Overall, this hostel is ok, but dont stay they if you intend to stay for more that 8 hours.

Stayed here for 3 nights in a 6 bed dorm. Dorm was on the small side and not enough powerpoints in the room for 6 people. Also only one decent shower out if 3 on my floor. However Reception were very friendly and there was a cooll area with sofas to watch movies/tv. Wifi was very good even upstairs in the dorm. Considering accommodation is expensive in Singapore if you are travelling on a budget then it's decent enough.

The hostel is good enough if all you're looking to do there is crash for the night and be about the city during the day. Rooms are too cramped and dank to "stay" in. The air-conditioning is only turned on in the evening. If spending time at the hostel during the day, make sure to set up fort in the lobby.

Showers work, toilets are clean. And the WiFi service works well, so no complaints there. Overall, a pretty good hostel if you don't plan on staying in the room for anything other than your nightly slumber.

Welcome to Footprints Backpacker Hostel - a HOME away from home! Looking for comfortable, clean and affordable accommodation in a friendly, cozy and relaxed environment?
