Super Near to ChinaTown Statiom”
I choose 5footway.inn Project Chinatown because of the self check-in machine. Since I arrived at 12:00 A.M., other hostels receptions are closed between 10PM to 11PM, self check-in machine is a big help for late arrivals, no need of receptionist for you to check-in. Other than the self check-in machine, the hostel is super near to ChinaTown station. Once your out from the train , look and follow the Pagoda St. arrow and when you reach the exit, at your right side you will see the hostel (just 5 meters away). What I like most is the separate shower/toilet for men & women. Definitely, I highly recommend this hostel.

A nice stay overall”
5footway.inn Project Chinatown is in the heart of Chinatown. It has easy access to the major attractions and to the airport (through the MRT). The bed was comfortable and clean but the room was small. The staff was friendly and helpful and breakfast was basic but nutritious (coffee, tea, cereals, toast with butter, jams, peanut butter...). Wifi was excellent too. Overall, a great budget place.
Great for budget travellers”
It was a pleasant stay; the sheets are clean, Wi-Fi service is available and fast, and of course, it's so close to the Chinatown MRT station - merely 5 footsteps away? ;) Directions from Chinatown MRT to 5footway.inn Project Chinatown 1: Use Exit A (Pagoda Street) and walk out of the MRT. Once outside, you'll see 5footway.inn in no time!
The Best Location!”
5footway.inn Project Chinatown is value for money because it is very very close to Chinatown station just not even a minute yet to the hostel. Easily missed it if you walk fast and not look on your right haha. Staff are friendly! and there is lots of restaurants and shops. There are only 2 things that I'm not ok with the hostel that is their breakfast and the bathroom. Bathrooms are clean, but almost every bathrooms, the hanging line for towel are broken.
The location is to die for”
I have a very great time stayed at the 5footway.inn Project Chinatown 1. This hostel has the best location, literally 30 steps from the Chinatown MRT exit A. The place is neat and clean. Although the shared bathroom was too small, but still acceptable. They also lend us singapore cellphone that's very useful for web browsing and maps. I would love to stay at here again next time.
Very Great Location”
When we reach the hotel at Chinatown, we really love the location, very happening which is like just locate at the center of Chinatown. Then I request to transfer hotel which I booked for 25-26 Nov at 5footway.inn Bugis. The staff very helpful and very efficient, ,help us to change immediately. Thank you guys. Room clean. But the pantry a bit small. Overall is a great hostel for backpackers.
Value for money”
I booked 6-beds female dormitory and ended up with 2-beds female dormitory, glad about that. The room was small but clean and comfy, with a big locker (suitable for cabin-size luggage). They have female-only and mixed bathroom, I used the mixed one because it was closer to my room, I found it clean and the hot shower worked well. For breakfast, they provides bread, jams, cereal, and milk. If you want any coffee or milo, it's available for 24hrs. Best things about this hostel is its location, very near from Chinatown MRT (choose exit A) and Chinatown market, also the food street. Overall, I felt satistied during my stay at 5footway.inn Chinatown 1 and definitely will come back later.
Decent budget hotel and easy access to MRT station”
It was the first time I brought my family to stay in a budget hotel. The dormitory- a compact room with 3 double decker beds and lockers are exactly as pictured on the website. Though small, the room is clean and the beds comfortable for a night stay. The only shortcoming was the guests in the next room who were quite noisy chit-chatting late night until we knocked at the dividing glass panes between our room and theirs. On the plus side, the MRT station is right at the doorstep of the hotel, so it was convenient for us as we arrived only at 8pm+ after a fun day at Universal Studio. Note: Universal Studio is only 2 stations away from 5footway.inn Project Chinatown. As the hotel is located in Chinatown, shopping for souvenirs or Chinese restaurants are easily available. I would recommend this hotel if you are looking for some place economical and convenient.
CONVENIENT LOCATION, ROOMS ARE NICE AND CLEAN”
Ive stayed here for 4x I think because Im always lazy to cross the border during Friday nights. The staff are friendly and would educate you their facilities and even show your room location, the rooms are clean and more comfortable at night is really very quiet cuz the shops below no longer operate; toilets i think compared to other hostels are better but still need to improve cleanliness; pantry area where customers eat their awesome FREE breakfast, they have to greatly improve the hygiene, their washing scrub for plates and utensils I think haven't been replaced for 3 months cuz its very very dirty already they have to regularly change it and not wait for it to be torn before they replace new one; Overall, I still want to stay in this hostel because of its convenient location just beside the Chinatown MRT, my requests are mostly been granted cuz I dowan to stay on upper deck beds, the staffs are helpful and friendly, the rooms are great, clean and incomparable to any other Singapore hostel inspite of its price! I will definitely come back and still stay whenever laziness strikes me again.
Good. Best. Excellent”
This budget hostel was excellent in many ways. The hostel staff were friendly and very attentive to their customer. Location was the best. Walk less than 8 minutes to the Chinatown MRT station. Free flow of drinks & light breakfast to start your day off. No regrets for the room price I paid. It was a standard price for an expensive city like Singapore. Need not comment more on that. Overall, I was very happy to stay in this hostel and looking forward to stay here again (wondering when can I go to Singapore again, sigh). Thank you so much to all the staff of this hostel. Your hospitality to us were awesome! You guys are ROCK!
Simply , Convinence , Worth money”
The hostel locate in the center of china town. Only 10 steps from mrt China town station (exit A). Many food shops nearby. you can also easily to walk to Marina Bay. Safe place. Clean bathroom. The room is simple and clean. If I go to SG again, I definitely choose 5footway.inn Chinatown. And I would recommend to all my friends who looking for cheap, clean and nice hostel. The only thing that I want recommend to the hostel is there should have the curtain to close in each bed inside the dormitory room. Anyway, in overall I Love It <3
Dear siriya, Thank you for taking time to share your feedback with us regarding your recent stay at 5footway.inn Project Chinatown 1. Your kind review meant a lot to us and we will definitely share this good news with all our staff. We’re glad that you have enjoyed your trip to Singapore and we look forward to welcoming you back to our little red dot and our hostel.
The place is great and has both perks and troubles. It’s self check in which can confuse a lot of people and you’ll need your booking reference but it’s actually very easy to do when you know you need that. It’s on the first floor and will give you your room number in the form of “address number-room-bed” so at 63 pagoda street room 1 bed 1 it’s 63-1-1. The machine will tell you when it gives you your key so make sure you read it. It’s literally two seconds away from an MRT station to which I’d say get an EZ link card it’s the Oyster card of Singapore. The rooms are clean and they have draws that your keycard can lock and unlock to open and close. The breakfast isn’t the best but Singapore has a traditional breakfast called kaya toast that you dip in egg which you get get as a meal from loads of stored. The closest in Chinatown can be found on the top end of the food street or in hawker centres all over the city no matter where you are. Hope this helps and have fun :)

My husband and I were only spening two nights in Singapore on our way to New Zealand. The hotel is a budget establishment, similar to a youth hostel. The rooms were tiny, but big enough to sleep in. I would have appreciated a chair in the room. The air conditioning was sooo welcome. Singapore is like a Sauna. I also appreciated the 24 hour free wireless internet. We got free coffee and acess to the microwave, fridge, crockery and cutlery. The best for me was the location, only a couple of steps to the MRT station and in the heart of the Chinatown stalls where we managed to buy momentos and souvenirs. I would recommend it to anybody travelling on a budget.
Great Location Ever”
It was a great time to stay in 5footway.inn during our holiday. We booked 6 bed for female dorm but the hotel arrrange us to stay together in private room. That's realy great support from hotel. The location is excellent very close to Chinatown MRT.
Perfect location, fast wifi, great value for $”
This hotel is located on Pagoda Street in the middle of Singapore's Chinatown and is conveniently surrounded by restaurants, shops, and food hawker stalls. It's literally steps from the Exit A escalator at the Chinatown MRT station and you can access anywhere in Singapore in minutes (including a ~40 minute trip to the airport for roughly $2 USD). The Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum is two blocks away and Little India is two short MRT stops away. If you are planning on using the MRT to travel throughout the city and will be taking it to several locations in one day, buy the tourist MRT pass at the airport. You can buy a 1, 2, or 3-day unlimited use card for $8 per day plus the $10 card deposit which you will be refunded when you return the card to the ticket office before you fly out. The hotel is small, but nice and charming. The second floor outdoor terrace is nice and the hotel has a complimentary coffee/cappuccino maker, water dispenser, mini fridge, and microwave available for use at anytime. The breakfast is simple, but good-- cereal and milk, toast with peanut butter/jam/butter and the coffee/cappuccino maker. The wifi is great which is hard to come by in SE Asia! Fast and reliable and I was actually able to download at this hotel. I stayed in a 6-bed female dorm and the room was dark, but spacious. The beds are thin and pretty hard (as are all I've experienced in Asia) but the comforter is fluffy and the pillows soft. As other reviews have said, the walls are somewhat thin and you can hear noise from others staying in the hotel, but the entire place was pretty silent after about 11:30pm. The shared bathrooms could be cleaned more often and the trashcans emptied more often, but overall the bathrooms were okay. There are only three shower stalls and three toilet stalls for the entire third floor, but somehow there wasn't ever a wait for the facilities. Remember to bring your own towel if you are staying in the dorm rooms or rent for $2.
This hotel proves that FIRST IMPRESSIONS DONT LAST”
Dont be misled with the title of my review here, because upon arriving at this relatively small hostel, it was around 2 in the morning. So naturally, there were very few people walking around, it was so dark, gloomily quiet, and the only noise you could hear was the rolling of your luggage along Chinatown. FIRST IMPRESSION of this hotel: Uh oh... But then our entire stay just turned everything all around. 5 Footway Inn has the best location! It's not 5 steps away from the MRT, its 5 BABY STEPS away! The wifi is amazing, and that's an understatement. The staff is friendly, they serve breakfast for free, they speak English fluently, their beds and rooms are cozy! The bathrooms could use a little improvement here and there but you're not gonna spend your entire vacation in Singapore taking a bath, are you? LASTING IMPRESSION: i could not be more satisfied. thank you so much for that little voice that whispered in my ear to book here in 5footway Chinatown. i will definitely come back here!!!
Strategic Location, Excellent Services”
The title itself sums it all. Strategically located in the hub of Chinatown, minutes away from the MRT station connected to most of the hot-spots in the city. It is by far one of the easiest accessible inn available in Chinatown. Despite a "technical glitch" causing a misunderstanding, I'll have to send my praises and compliments to the Supervisor on duty for tactfully managing the situation; kudos to your excellent customer service, Monet and Tetrina (if I spell your name correctly?!)! Aside from all the necessities adequately provided, the inn gives a comfortable and peaceful feeling all day long. Best for a runner to be at ease before heading off for a race, and to rest, after that. I didn't have much time for breakfast, though. But I'll be back, that's for sure. It's certainly one of the better choices around for an economical lodge in Singapore!
Great Location for a Budget Hotel”
This is my first time travelling to Singapore. Never thought that it would be so easy to find the hotel location. It is very close to Chinatown MRT Station. I checked in at 16.00 and then the staff is nicely showed me around the common room and shared bathroom area. Both the area is very clean and nice with warm wood color that it makes me feel so comfortable like in my own house. The hot water at the bathroom also works great. Great for relaxation after travelling the whole day. The female dorm room is also very clean. I stayed here for 3 nights, the air conditioning works well. I sleep cozy on my bed all night. There is also a private charging spot and a reading lamp near your bed. This place is very recomended for you, budget travelers.
im first to SIngapore and also at 5footway.inn project chinatown , hotel place very best location with MRT station , food court . and we are really happy holiday
It is near the Singapore MRT Chinatown station so it is very convenient to go around by train. Hotel room was clean, and the hotel staff were very nice. I will recommend this hotel to anyone who are looking for a backpacker hotel in Singapore. Since it is in the middle of Chinatown, you will have to bear some noise.
