We booked this hostel based on the fact that they have a rooftop terrace, and private rooms. My companion and I both work in the tourism business in Thailand so we weren't looking for a very social place, hoping just to enjoy each others company. That was fine, there didn't appear to be much of a social atmosphere anyways. The room was very small, but fine for what we needed, and the least expensive private room you will find in Singapore. The bathrooms were also fine, and obviously tended to throughout the day. Staff spoke excellent English wish is not a requirement but a bonus. The rooftop terrace was smaller than it appeared in pictures but suited our need for a space to smoke and drink our duty free wine just fine. The only real hiccup in our stay was when we bought our tickets to Universal Studios from the front desk, and upon arriving at Universal found out we had only been given the food vouchers, not the actual tickets so we were denied entry. The park called 5footway.inn and explained. We ended up buying our own tickets for less money (but without the food and attraction vouchers included in the deal at the hostel) and they refunded us when we got back for the evening. It really wasn't a huge deal, as we still got into the park and had an awesome day. The woman working in the evening who processed our refund was apologetic and explained the staff who had helped us in the day time was new. She offered to do our laundry for free to make up for it but we assured her it was not a problem! The included breakfast was again basic but good. Toast, cereal and fruit. The coffee machine that is available 24 hours was a great plus.
Over all, we had a fine stay. Everything we needed but nothing fancy. I would stay here again.
Oh - the location is fantastic. Arab st is amazing and I could have spent my whole holiday walking around exploring the different side streets. It's a colorful area and it appears it's always humming. Not in a night clubby way but in a great food, great pubs, tons of culture kind of way :)
