For you looking for Chinatown is the place, very close with MRT. Room was nice, have lockers is side by key card. You no need worry about safety. Hostel have breakfast also, but noisy from outsiders. For Backpacker is choice.

Dear q1w13,

Thank you for taking time to share your feedback with us regarding your recent stay at 5footway.inn Project Ann Siang. Your feedback meant a lot to us and we will definitely share this with our staff.

We seek your kind understanding and sincerely hope that our wonderful location can compensate for some of our lacks.

We seek your kind understanding and look forward to have you back again.

Location: 5/5 as this property located right at the Chinatown MRT (exit A). Plenty to see and eat. Do not miss the food court in Chinatown! This is the hidden treasure where all the locals go for good local food at affordable price.

Room 16.5 & 16.6: This is a small room with 3 bunk beds. We took 1 bunk bed. Use your room card to place your belonging in the small locker under the bed. Thin walls, basically if you can't endure the noise from the room nx to you, this is not the place for you. Bugs spotted crawling on the wall, felt disgusted and wished nothing will happen to me as I only stay for a night.

Share bathroom: Shower gel provided inside. Remember to bring your own towel or else prepare to pay SGD5 to rent for 1 (this is what you pay for!).

Service: Self check-in kiosk machine. Prepare to scan your passport at the smart machine. DIY kinda thing, no front desk or staff to welcome (this is what you pay for!). Nevertheless, the cleaner lady was super helpful and friendly.

Breakfast: Make your own toast with coffee and cereal drink at the terrace.

Overall: Will only recommed this if you are on a super tight budget and looking for place near the train station or Chinatown.

As part of our strict maintenance routine, we sterilize our premises thoroughly and frequently to upkeep our hygiene standards. Unfortunately, there will always be irresponsible guests who will bring in these unwelcomed “riders” into our hostel. We hope to seek your kind understanding that it is impossible for any accommodation providers, even hotels are facing similar challenges, to do a 100% preventive measure in regards to this issue. However, please be assured that we will definitely take immediate actions to find the quickest solution as soon as we are alerted, apart from the regular sterilization routine we do to upkeep our hygiene standards.

We appreciate your feedback and look forward to have you back again.

Their website advertises with spacious pictures a fancy looking and "boutique" style Hostel. It doesn't exist.
This place is rundown, cramped, depressing, outrageously overpriced. The bunk beds feel like cages to me who is 1,87cm. Every bed I stayed at in Indonesia budget travelling was larger and more comfortable.
Be aware, theres not even a reception. Upon arrival you get to communicate with a robot who leaves you frustrated after plane travel coz it's all not clear yet and steals your time and energy.

This is what I call scam.

Automation has become an inevitable part of business operations, especially in high-cost city such as Singapore. Over at our side, rest assured that there will always be staff attending to the kiosk round the clock although they may not be stationed in the property at all times.

We appreciate your feedback and look forward to have you back again.

The hostel was really appropriate for a solo traveller looking for a quick place to crash, shower and rest. It provides the guests with basic nescessities, however you may need to bring your own towel.
Other than that, the place have self check in facilities, but of you need assistance they will be there and there's a phone to call them.
The staff was also helpful. The wifi worked. The bathroom are pretty clean and the bed was also comfortable. Overall good experience.
