Reviewed August 26, 2013

There were 3 of us and since we only stayed for a night, we decided to go for something simple and budget. We booked the triple room. Room was really small with not much space to hang/put things. Suggest to at least have a small table/rack. Not enough power sockets as well. Can start to see some corners are not too well-maintained, especially the bathroom with quite a bit of stains. The inn is definitely much smaller than in the photos. However, it's located near the China Town MRT which is really convenient. And food is not a problem here.

I came to Singapore at 20 Aug with my friends and we rented a 4 beds room,the location was great,5 mins walk to Chinatown subway station.
Firstly we came here and check in room No.3 which was quite small,not enough place to placed our stuff,so we asked maybe we can change to another room which is bigger.The staff was really friendly help us to change room,and we moved to room No.9,the room was clean and tidy.
Toilet and bathroom was just OK,the female toilet was very busy at morning.
The staff was very friendly and useful,they will help you to plan your itinerary in Singapore if you are first time to travel here.Comparing with the others this is really a nice and value hostel,
Thanks to Gin who was help us a lot,really sweet and awesome.
I recommended for you who are in first traveling Singapore.

Hostel with best location a few walk from China town, the room is clean and nice if come as family and group of friends. But toilets and shower rooms are so dirty. Because many guests are from Asia and quality of guests need to be educated. The hostel can put some signs to remind guests.

Staff are so friendly and useful.

Room Tip: Rooms are good, beds are so comfortable.

Had a really great time with my mother when we stayed at 5footway.inn Project 2 in July 2013. We had a Superior private room with window. Saw the Sri Mariammann Temple just across the street. Great!
Small room, but clean. Bed for my mother on the floor, big loft bed for me. No need for a big room when in Singapore. Just explore the city at day and sleep like dead at night! Well, IF you can sleep.... Some people are not very considerate of their neighbours and are yelling outside their doors at 2a.m. So bring earplugs.
Bathrooms and toilets are small and not always clean. I think that´s not the fault of the staff, but of the guests. Some must live like pigs at home. Staff cleans the bathrooms and toilets twice daily, i think.
When our AC broke, the staff gave us a new private bedroom with window for the last two nights! So nice!! Thanks again to the whole staff, everyone of you is just great!

We where almost daily at the Maxwell Food Hawker Center, if you want to eat good and cheap, there is nothing better. Just a 5 minute walk away.

I highly recommend this place and will come back again!

Room Tip: Rooms 19 and 23 are private bedrooms with window

I was on a really tight budget and found this place on the web, just a one night stay on my way to somewhere else.
Good points:
Cheap, really friendly helpful staff (be generous and leave them a good tip), close to Chinatown and easy access from MRT, nice clean white bed linen (no hiding stains behind bright colours)
Bad points:
If you are tall - the beds are short! The walls are thin and the beds creak. Bring earplugs and a sleep mask.
To be fair, it is a cheap dorm place, don't come with your expectations too high, all rooms look alike when you are asleep. Get out of the room and explore Chinatown nearby.
