Finally got into a hostel , and the place looked cleaned.the room was also clean, but the toilet was kind of dirty and dated back .location of the place is near the little india station of smrt. Which links to almost every part of the city.the staff were very helpful with the information and friendly too. The breakfast was normal, not worth the money at all.i would recommend to look for other place before you step into this place.

I stayed with my friends in 12 bed dorm room, it was clean and nice bed. The staffs were helpful and friendly, good location only view minutes walk to MRT station and Mustafa, the breakfast was fine - the bread, cereal & coffee/tea.
Overall, this hostel is recommended and great values to stay when you're in Singapore.

It's not the best hostel to stay in at its price range. It feels dated, cramped, and smells kind of musty. The lockers' locks look frail and easy to break into. Acceptable only if you get its early bird special price. At its regular price, I think it's overpriced for what you get. There are better hostels in the city in that price range. The staff were great and helpful though. And the breakfast of cereals, bread, and spreads are filling.

Nice location (just in the middle of the pintoresque district of Little India), reasonable price, CLEAN ROOMS AND SHARED BATHROOM and the best beer price in town. I hardly recommend it for anyone traveling on a budget, the city is expensive enough, you will find that nice but fair-price place to sleep in at Footprints.

I stayed here for a couple of nights at the end of my stay in Singapore. I think it was overpriced for what it was. I originally asked to stay in a six bed dorm room mixed, but found that I was stayed in a room with men who were a LOT older than me (I'm 24 and they were at least 40) and I didn't feel comfortable, so luckily the lady at reception moved me to a 10 bed female dorm when I asked, in which I felt much happier! Breakfast was fine - toast, cereal and tea/coffee, also wifi fine if a bit slow. Not bad for a couple of nights but there are other hostels nearby which offer better value for money I think.

Decent hostel in a decent part of Singapore. Lots of food nearby, not so much local beer. Plenty of stuff going on outside. Free WiFi, and lots of beer available all through the night/morning.

Note, the poor rating I have given for sleep quality is no fault of the hostel!

Recently stayed at Footprints for our 2 day stint in Singapore. The staff was very helpful, and the rooms were clean. Appreciated that each bed had it's own plug and booklight. Shared bathrooms but plenty of showers. They let us leave our luggage after check-out for about 2 - 3 hours. Not too far from downtown but not super close either. We indulged in some delicious Indian food that was only a five minute walk away!

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