“Hot nights in cool town.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

Ah... What a lovely place. Singapore, the city of surprises. beautiful friendly food, delicious people, big bottles of tiger juice, it has it all. Happiness poured from me like sweat. What was even more like sweat was the sweat. And to come back from adventuring to the wonderful, clean, friendly 5footway inn was the jelly on the chendol. A wonderful place to discover the joys of showering and making toilet at the same time. The beds are good, clean, white, completely the opposite of my bed at home. And did I mention the staff? They are awesome, even let me have a shower after I checked out. So, in conclusion, 5footway inn is the best place I have ever stayed in Singapore and if you want to be like me you'll stay there too. The end.

Stayed October 2012, traveled with friends

This place is a top place to stay, the location is amazing with plenty of cheap places to eat and some of the most helpful hostel staff I have came across. The rooms are a bit of a squeeze but ignore the comments about the breakfast there's free cereal, coffee , toast , jam and PEANUT BUTTER! . Would defo stay here again.

We stayed for 4D/3N at the hotel. Made a reservation for quad bed room, but when we arrive, they give us a room consists of 6 bed, but that wouldn't be a problem since the room is all ours. The room is clean, bed is comfortable, but the room quite bit small. Dissapointment came from the noise from the other room, the wall is very thin, we can hear our neighbour voice, and the room next to our room has sliding door that caused a loud noise everytime people closed it.

Lot of reviews said that the location of the hotel are very convinient, and that is TRUE, only few steps from Chinatown MRT Station, 3 minutes walk to McDonalds. There are many shops and palces to eat around the hotel. But we are moslem, having difficult time to find a place to eat which is "no pork and lard" because most of them are chinese food.

The hotel provide standard breakfast, corn flakes, bread, apple, coffe/tea. Wifi speed is pretty good.

i never stay at hostel that share room with others. i was worried about safety, and the comfy. but when i found this hotel, its looks clean,cozy, and they have female dorm with female share bathroom. the location only few steps from MRT. market is downstair, many choice of food and cheap. the staff very friendly, the room clean and bed so comfy. even the market is downstair, but its not noisy. oohh.. i like the green tea soap, i forgot to ask what soap they use, because i really like all green tea stuff. overall, no complain and we all enjoy our holiday in singapore :)

Room Tip: if you are female, try 6 female dorm up stairs. its large room.

we stayed here 4 nights and five days. the location is great, right next to the MRT which was very handy for us. we had a private room, which was very tiny (but you get what you pay for). the shower and toilet facilties were kept reasonably clean by the staff. breakfast didnt have many options, but it was enough. the staff were very helpful and kind. over all a cosy hostel with the necessities in a great location.
