Nice place to stay for those who are on budget”
If you're after Singapore's night life, 5footway.inn project @ boat quay is the best place for you (specially if you are on a budget! Aside from being near to restos and bars it is also walking distance from the MRT (Clarke Quay Station) and some tourist spots in singapore.. The hostel let their guests borrow mobile phones. It has data already so you don't need to worry how to go around singapore as well as posting your adventure in social media (real time!). Oh, didn't I say that you can use the phone in calling local and international? But please do take care of the phone, if you lose it, you'll pay for it.
Recommended for good location and its cleanliness”
Overall it was a pleasant stay at the 5footway.inn Project Boat Quay. Centrally located, and walking distances to mrt station and Clark Quay area. Convenient and surrounded by many restaurants. Nice view at the terrace place where you can enjoy the beautiful view of Boat Quay while enjoying breakfast or coffee. Besides, internet speed is fast. I will recommend my friends to stay in 5footway.inn Project Boat Quay when they come to Singapore.
Helpful Staff, Great Location”
I was having a jet lag because a long haul flight, and I can have early check in (and also early check out) with helping from friendly receptionist (whose name is Ramadhan, thank you so much sir :)) This is the second time I'm staying in 5footwayinn project Boat Quay, and I'm never had a problem with them. Location near MRT and clarke quay, lots of restaurant, open for 24/7. They are really great. It's really different with their other Project in Bugis, which I'm not recommended due to their dirty room and unfriendly staff.
Very impressed! Best hostel so far!”
I stayed in a single room but this is a hostel as well. The hotel's location is awesome- it is right in the middle of Boat Quays and gives easy access to the Clark Quay MRT station, a short walk to the Fullerton area. Great for shopping, sightseeing and going out for drinks. The hostel is very new and opened only last month so it is very clean and well maintained so far. It has a lovely terrace that boasts and awesome view of the River the the Singapore sky line. The internet was fast as well which is always a plus. The only down part about this hostel was it's accessibility in and out of the rooms through the steps specially if you are carrying luggage around. This is bearable though. Definitely a must stay place when in Singapore on a budget!
Awesome and valuable~”
The location is centrally located at Boat Quay, easy access to Clarke Quay, some tourist spot such as Chinatown, Merlion, Central Shopping Mall with 10-20 minutes walking distance. We had a very nice river view from balcony with 7-11 suppers, we can see the Marina Bay and Fullerton Hotel. It is also easy access to public transportation (MRT and Public Bus) and Ezlink is a MUST to go everywhere in Singapore. The complementary breakfast at hotel is just so nice, bread with various types of jam, cereals with milk and several of hot drinks. Moreover, the hotel front desk staffs are very friendly and helpful. The service was good. The room was small but cleans enough. It is no issue for us, since we understand we get what we're pay for especially in Singapore. Lastly, I would definitely recommend any friends who might be visiting in Singapore.
Great Location, Wonderful Landscape and Warm Place”
I stayed in Dec-14. This hostel is beyond my expectation. It's very good at location and landscape. You can see landscape of Singapore river, Buildings around City Hall, Marina Bay Sands, and Skyscrapters in CBD when you sit at balcony. Only 300 m or 3-5 minutes walk on riverside from Clarke Quay MRT station, this is convenient to go anywhere. There are many restuarants nearby and Central mall is just above Clarke Quay station. From hostel, you can walk crossing the river to visit City Hall region, Chinatown, Marina Bay area, Raffles Place within 30 minutes walk. Service is good, they are warm welcome and glad to ask for travelling info. Bedroom is clean but no daily cleaning (during my 3-night stay) and small. There is universal socket and reading light for every bed. Public toilets and showering rooms are routinely washed and sufficient but not located on every floor. There is no elevator which means this is not easy for huge baggage. Breakfast is not superior, only bread (toastable) with jam, cereal, milk and apple. Ultimately, they have free Wifi! From my view, the price of this hostel is insignificantly different from other locations but you will experience wonderful landscape of riverside. If you're looking for low-price hostel with acceptable service and good location, I can say this gonna be your answer.
Easy access to major sights and transport.”
Its was a pleasant 4 days stay at 5footway.inn Project Boat Quay with easy access to public transport and major attraction. Staffs were friendly and the triple room was surprising clean and neat with free internet available in both lobby and room and major restaurants and local delights were a stone throw away.
The best location! :)”
I really impressive with this hostel. The location is the best! I can see Marina Bay Sand cleary from the terrace. That's so beautiful. Moreover, the staffs are so helpful and friendly. If I go to travel Singapore again, 5th Footway.inn project Boat Quay will be my only one choice forever! One more thing that I need the hostel improve is bathrooms and restrooms. I think it'll be better to keep it clean all the time. That's it!!!!
Very good budgeted hostel in my singapore visit”
So far it is the best hostel i stayed in Singapore. Room is clean and the bed is comfortable. Toilet need to be improved on the cleanliness. Also my first experience to use machine for check in and drop box for check out. Extremely fast process as it depend on user. Hahaha. Very good experience at Clarke Quay/Boat Quay. A lot of attraction around the place by walking distance. Definately will come back.

Great Hostel in Singapore”
The location is perfect! Even if it is a bit higher but the location is perfect. The center of everywhere located at the Boat Quay area and overlokking at the Marina Bay Sands, as well as it is a walking distance, its just like staying in an expensive hotel near it. Walking distance Clarke Quay MRT Station from there you can go anywhere! If you wanna do a walk tour, Gardens by the Bay, Little India, China Town, Suntec, Haji Lane is also walking distance, what else Esplanade Mall, Makansutra, event the OrChard Road.
A very good stay for a budget, if you don't mind to share room with others”
Before my review, it has to be highlighted that the room that I rented is a shared room, with 4 beds in it. The facility of the hotel/hostel is quite complete, but you will be sharing facilities with others, such as toilet, utensils, and the room that you staying. The cleanliness of the hostel is well-maintained. But you will need to prepare your own towel, toothpaste. The room itself is clean, and it has AC. And you get to know various people from other countries (if you are lucky). But still you would want to keep an eye on your valuables because you are sharing rooms with stranger. The neighborhood is excellent. It is in the center of lots of restaurants and bars, while you can enjoy the night view of the river. The famous bar concentrated spot in Clarke Quay is just 10-min walking distance. The hotel staffs are polite, and has very good service.
Great location, super friendly staff”
Clark quay is the best location as compared to bugis. walking distance to top places. This hostel is self check -in. u need to check-in using kiosk. its super easy. u can find staff at reception counter if u had a problem. check in time is 3pm, u can't use the key if it is before 3pm. I booked private double standard room, but i got the "attic room" which i need to climb up steep stairs to get into my bed. it is kind of dangerous with my 3yo sons. luckily the staff help me to change my room and i got more comfortable room instead. staff really really helpful and friendly. they assist me for my journey during my stay in Singapore. i love my breakfast view, got iron station too. easy for me to iron my shawl n blouses. toilet n shower room was ok. didnt expect much since we share bathroom with others. but thanks coz u have pipe in female toilet! however, its hard to get halal food around this area. but u can still tapaw your food before heading back to your room.
Dear Nur, Thank you for taking time to share your feedback with us regarding your recent stay at 5footwat.inn Project Boat Quay. Your kind review meant a lot to us and we will definitely share this with our staff. We need to set a stipulated check in time, as all, if not most of the hostels and hotels do, owing to the need for housekeeping to prepare the room for the guests who are checking in. Nonetheless, our luggage storage is available for you to store your belongings so that you can get started on your explorations in Singapore as soon as you drop off your luggage. Once again thank you for the kind feedback and we hope to welcome you again soon.
Great facility. amazing location and view.”
Stayed in Singapore for a week. Left previous hostel in Chinatown because I was dissatisfied. Paid more to stay at 5 foot way inn @ boat quay. Well worth it. Rooms are super clean, bathrooms cleaned daily, relaxing and hip vibe, overlooks boat quay and marina bay sands hotel. Gorgeous. Recommend this to all backpackers and business travelers as well.
Value for Money”
The 4 of us stayed in one room with 2 bunk-beds. the room was a bit small, but it's only for sleep, so it's okay for us. the bed is clean and comfortable, the washroom also clean at night (but a bit smelly in the morning due to many tourists shower in the morning), the toilet also clean and has water hose (which is convenience for us moslems). The terrace was very clean and has a great Marina Sand Bay view! they have free water dispenser for drinks (if you have your own bottle you can refill it before going around in Singapore), also free flow hot tea/coffee maker/dispenser(?) which we loved ! The Hostel near Clarke Quay / Raffles MRT Station and only 2 minutes walking; the Merlion also only 5 minutes walking. We really enjoy and satisfied and will definitely stay here again!
A no-frills centrally located backpacker hostel”
I stayed at Project Bugis before, and had no hesitation to book at Project Boat Quay before. The location is amazing (right above Boat Quay) and was reasonable for the price I paid. The room was good(I booked single), the rooms had lockers which were key-card activated. Sheets were clean, and I had no problems checking out at 4:00am for my marathon. The staff were kind enough to let me leave my bags at the hostel till I collected it at 5:00pm later. Everything was fuss-free and if you are looking for a centrally located place in Singapore near the local public transport lines as well as right above the pubs, bars and eateries then I'd recommend this place.
A more premier backpackers hostel than most.”
We stayed at the 5footway.inn for two nights, although the price is a little higher than other backpacker lodges the rooms were very clean and located very centrally; a few minutes walk from an MRT, located right on Boat Quay and a shorter walk away from City Hall. Only problem is that if you are looking at a room with a window, you are out of luck. Our room was akin to a small (but well lit and comfortable) prison cell without any windows. However, if you are the type that will be out most of the day and only come back to the hostel to sleep, then all is good. Note: For those with paranoia, there are lockers with electronic locks in the room, so you can leave your passports and iPads at the hostel with peace of mind.
Great location & service at a steal price”
•Just a quick underpass walk to the clarke quay station - super accesible • Attentive and knowledgable staff • New and all functioning amenities, complete with a locker cabinet per bed • The gallery at the terrace plus the view up there fronting the river is beautiful. Not something you get for this price and for any hostel at that! Enjoyed early mornings and late nights here. • Just be aware that its along riverwalk, and if you happen to stay on a friday and saturday night, try to avoid the rooms directly fronting the river since the nightlife crowd can tend to get noisy even until late

staffs are so nice!”
It's a less than 10 minute walk from MRT Clarke Quay Station, very easy access to famous spots. Actually the entrance of this hotel looks like a oriinary home so I recommend paying attention to the addredd shown on every building. Staffs are so kind to answer any questions in English, room are so clean and cozy. There' s a terrace on the top floor from which we can experience amazing scenery.
