Footprints Hostel
Ranked #58 of 237 Specialty Lodging in Singapore
Reviewed September 2, 2010

I went to Singapore last August with my family (with young and senior) and stayed at Footprints Hostel for 4 days. It is situated at Little India with about 5-10 minute walk to the MRT station, 5-10 minute walk to Mustafa centre, Bugis street and about 5-minute walk to Sim Lim Square. We took the family room which is good for 5 people and was very satisfied with its coziness considering its price. The room has AC and is clean, comfortable and wide. Even the shared comfort room is OK. Hot and cold showers are there, hair blowers (for ladies) and fans. Complimentary breakfast such as bread with different jams, cereals, milk, coffee and tea are also served from 7AM-10AM. They even have 4 desktop PCs with internet in the lobby that are free to use by its guests. Wide screen TV with sofa are there too and a bulletin with tips about getting around Singapore. Moreover, they also provide tour arrangements/transfers such as going to Singapore zoo, Malaysia, Night Safari and even airport transfer to their guests. Just ask for an arrangement a day or two before your planned trip and it will be all set. The best thing about it, the address is familiar to cab drivers. Since we have a senior with us, we often take the cab and just say 'Dickson Road' and drivers know it already. We really enjoyed our stay. Staffs are great, very helpful and honest. If you are on a budget but still want to feel the convenience of traveling, consider this hostel!

In a great location in Little India, this hostel was nice and clean and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are a little small but definitely adequate and while the a/c was good, the in-room wifi went in and out. The shared bathrooms were ok and clean. The shower stalls were decent sized and the water pressure was good. The atmosphere was very nice with a good couch/tv area downstairs, a large eating area, and nicely painted walls with fun décor. The breakfast was very basic with just toast, peanut butter, jam, and cereal. The staff were extremely accommodating and helped us with every question and problem we had. Overall, it seemed a bit pricey and had a backpacker atmosphere but compared to other places in Singapore, you probably won’t find a much better hostel or a much better deal.

Stayed at Footprints for 3 nights in a 6 bed mixed dorm. The room was clean and fresh sheets were given upon check in. The dorm had a fan and a/c which came on between 7pm and 9:30am. The room cost 25 S$ a night.

The common areas were nice and well presented, sometimes a little busy if the hostel is full. There was free wifi and a free 20 mins/ a day on there computers if you didnt have a laptop. There was laundary facilities at S$3 per load.

The staff were friendly and there was always someone on hand to help you out or organise a taxi/trip.

The location is ok, 5 mins from an MRT station into the centre of Singapore or you could walk. There were plenty of restaurants and bars in Little India.

Overall I would recommend this place to all types of visitors to the city.

I stayed here with friends from high school and it was our first time staying in a hostel. it was located near little india mrt station and just a walking distance to Bugis Junction. So in location, this place is great. The room also clean but the sometime i found the bathroom a bit dirty. We got cereal and toast with variety of jams for breakfast.

When we arrived the hostel staff were very friendly and helpful. At first we were unsure whether the hostel was in a good location but soon enough we found that we were close to all of singapores attractions, little india mrt station is just a 5min walk away. We were under the impression that we had an ensuite room which we didnt have, but this did not matter as the shared showers were clean, hot and powerful! One downside was that the rooms were very cold due to the air con and it took a bit of time to get this right for us, also the hostel only provided us each with one sheet for the bed, but once asked the staff were more than happy to provide us with a second sheet. The FREE breakfast in the morning was fab!! Plus free internet for 20mins per day meant that the hostel was great value for money. I would come back here without a second thought!

We stayed at Footprints for six nights and found it good value for money. We stayed in a 12 bed mixed dorm and it was clean and tidy. There was air con in the room which was on between 7pm and 9am and a couple of fans for the daytime. The wi-fi was free but you could also use the internet terminals for FREE - a huge bonus to most travellers! Breakfast is included but isn't great - usual tea and toast and if you don't get up early that's sometimes gone!!

The hostel is in the Little India region so there are plenty of cheap places to eat near by including the Tekka Centre. We ate at a fantastic vegetarian restaurant around the corner called Chellas and they were the best Indian meals I've had.... There is an MRT station 5-10 minutes walk away from the hostel and a bus stop nearby too. The MRT is incredibly cheap to use at only $1.10 to get to most places around the center.

All in all a good little hostel which is ideally placed and reasonably priced. The staff are great too - very helpful with trip planning etc.....

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.
