I was lucky to have found Footprints Hostel. For only SGD20.00 per head per night, we got a family room. Originally, it can only accommodate 6 pax, so my mom and I just shared a bed so the room can fit all 7 of us. And by the way, the rate already includes breakfast. Sweet!

Even though I've been traveling for years, this is the first time I stayed at a backpacker's hostel so I didn't expect too much, but was pleasantly surprised that the room was not as bad as I thought. It didn't feel cramped. In fact, we had more than enough space to walk around. Of course it's a no-frills room but what's important is it's clean. The A/C works well. There's even a back-up wall fan in case you find the room temperature not cool enough.

The mattress' firmness is also just right. My companions always had a good night's sleep. I also like that each bed has its own power outlet, reading light, and small ledge to put some of your stuff. The lockers are also big enough to fit a backpack. Just bring your own padlock.

What's good about this hostel is that while the bathrooms are shared, men and women's are still separate. Each bathroom has three cubicles for toilet (and with bidet at that!) and three shower stalls. Showers are equipped with hot and cold water, and the water pressure's very strong too. Girls need not bring their hair dryer because it is also provided. I should say that the bathroom is well-maintained too. I've observed that they clean it at least twice a day.

As I've mentioned, breakfast is included. Guests can choose from toast with butter and jam (at least three flavors) or cereal (at least two kinds). There is also free coffee or tea. Hot water is also available for your instant noodles. Sometimes, there's even fresh fruits too! Just don't forget to clean as you go.

The hostel is located in Little India, and though it's a bit of a walk to the nearest MRT station, it wasn't hard to find at all since it's a huge building at the corners of Perak and Dickson Roads. It's also worth mentioning that Sim Lim Square a.k.a. technophile's haven is just a few minutes away.

I came across this hostel after I came from Malaysia on bus. This hostel is just a few minutes walk from the bus terminal that has buses going to and from Malaysia. The subway stations at Bugis (this goes to the airport) and Little India are pretty nearby so it was no problem getting around.

The hostel is not new but the general cleanliness of the rooms and bathrooms are alright. Hot showers were a plus after I came from the last hostel that had cold showers only. Each bed has its own plug point and a small shelf, useful if you need to be plugged into your laptop. The wifi was speedy and available throughout the hostel at no charge. Breakfast was standard with toast with pb and jams, cereal with milk, coffee and tea. The hostel also provided fruits for breakfast.

The best thing about the hostel is the staff whom makes the difference. The guy at the reception gave me detailed information about where to go for the best local foods as I heard so much about the street food in Singapore. I went to the Lau Pa Sat and Maxwell Food Centre at his recommendation and the food was really great. Note that the food at Lau Pa Sat is more costly.

The other girl at the reception was also friendly and really honest. I saw her pick up a iphone at computer area and was asking around the lobby area who it belonged to. In the end, this dude came back from outside with his backpack and she passed the phone to him.

I have been travelling for 2 weeks and it is usually the people who leave an impression on me rather than the facilities at the hostel. I would recommend this hostel to anyone who would like friendly and warm service.

2nd time here. cool staff. cool people here. great price for a hostel. most of the basic you need here. Very knowledgeable staff where to eat. Very high pressured water for a great shower. A color for place situated in the middle of little India. It is 8 min walk to Arab street. Less than 5 min to MRT. 5 min ride to chinatown. Where every you go in Singapore you need to take the MRT to access any hotspots there.

i stayed here 2 years ago for my first time and returned last week for 4 days, choosing it just out of familiarity. i stayed in the 12-person room, which was less cramped than i had imagined, and the bed lamps and individual wall shelf seem to be a new addition.

the best parts: wi-fi is super great and accessible even sitting on a top bunk. the common room is super cozy with comfortable couches and lots of seating. breakfast is plain but expansive: cereal, bread with PB or jam, milk, coffee, tea.

the okay parts: a bit of a walk to little india MRT (which, once there, is super accessible to all the main sights). in the morning there's usually locals or non-guests hanging around outside chatting or selling things, although they don't come up and bother you. there's AC only at night, but if you come back to nap in the afternoon, the fan is a do-able substitute.

a basic, straightforward choice for the price. nothing too fancy, nothing too terrible.

this is my third time staying at footprints, first time april 2011 with my friends, second time on april 2012 with my family, and third time april 2013 with my friends.i really like staying in footprints, all the staff are very warm and welcoming. i've stayed at both their private and dorm room and the room is clean, bright and comfortable. the staffs are always there to help when you have a problem or when you simply want to talk to someone and do some small talk overall. it's wonderful experience. some of the staff that i know are Francis, Anna, Michelle, Janah they are very friendly and helpful, altough the other staff are new but they are also very warm, helpful and welcoming. the location of footprints also strategic and easy to find. i have been recommending this place to most of our friends due to all staff are very helpful. i wish comeback soon and of course i will stay at footprints again..thank you footprints..love this place so muchhhh..

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

This ethnic quarter is packed with interesting treasures awaiting to be discovered. Retaining much of its authentic charm and distinct identity, this district is not what you would expect of the generally rather ‘sanitized’ Singapore. It is one of the most colourful and exotic places to visit on the island.
