“I left my footprints here... ””
Arrived here at half past 1 in the afternoon on the 28th of February 2017. My flight from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore was only for about an hour. The flight, being flown in by an LCC, arrived at T1 of Changi International Airport. This means that after immigration, I would have to take the Skytrain (free) to T3 where the MRT station is located. And since I already have an EZ link card (a card that can be used towards train and bus rides throughout Singapore), I immediately got in the train station and waited for the train. EZ link cards can be bought at the train station. Approximately SGD10++ (USD7++). If you are from the airport, the next train station/stop is Expo and finally, Tanah Mera MRT Station. Train service terminates here. This is the Green Line. And since I was going to Footprints, I would have to change train (still on the Green Line) towards the city. And after about 8 stations later, I alighted at the Bugis MRT Station. And then I had to change to Blue Line (called the Downtown Line), which was a bit of a walk from the Green Line (but good exercise) for one more stop to Rochor MRT Station. I finally got out of the train station and total fare costs about SGD2.50. I immediately saw Perak Road (take Exit B) and was like counting the numbers on each establishment (each one is numbered though ). Footprints is at 25A and was easy to spot. Hostel is located within walking distance to Sim Lim Square (electronics and gadgets store of Singapore) and the Bugis area. Check-in was the most organized I've seen in all of hostels I've stayed. I was given a bed sheet (which I had to put myself), a pillow, pillowcase and rented an SGD4 a day towel (SGD2 will be refunded upon check-out). They will give you free wifi which was pretty fast. And also the access code to access the area where all rooms are located. You will also be given a key to the room. AC was working well. I was also asked for a deposit of SGD20 which can be refunded during check-out. I had a 12-bed dor
From a totally happy and satisfied backpacker! Chekc out my YouTube (Marielle Mangga) vlog later :)”
Me and my mom just checked out from this amazing place two days ago, and I can totally recommend this to everyone that's eyeing on Easy access and Value for money. The location is very near to Rochor station, about 5 - 10 mins walk which is totally a huge deal for your tired feet from a whole day of navigating SG :)), trust me! In front of Footprints is an Asian restaurant (Al Bismi) which serves one of the best coffee i've ever had outside PH @ $1 (Singapore dollar) per cup. They serve good food at a value meal deals too $6-$12 & the rice serving is good for two souls already. There's a 7 eleven store near Al Bismi as well which serves affordable rice combos, fruits, etc. We stayed in a single room (24 hours air-conditioned) at a very reasonable deal over agoda.com. Other rooms i heard doesn't have an a.c in the day time (which is fine, cause you're not there anyway). Room has a convenient space, power outlets, lamps and a locker. Shared bathroom has 3 shower cubicle and 2 toilets.
Hi Marielle , Thank you for the heartwarming review. We are really glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and that you appreciated our services especially for mentioning convenient location and details of our surrounding. Looking forward to welcoming you soon again :)
We went to SG recently and stayed at Footprints Hostel. We did enjoy our stay in the hostel. It is very affordable and the best thing was we met a “kababayan” who happened to be a staff in the hostel. Francis was very accommodating and kind in giving us tips on where to go, what to do and not to do during our tour. Other staffs were equally friendly and hospitable. It’s easy to shop since the place is near Bugis and Little India MRT. There’s wifi and free local phone calls. Should you need adapter, extra towels, blankets and keys, the staff are there to assist you. You just have to deposit and it’s refundable. However, couple of things you need to consider, room is quite small and don’t expect too much on breakfast- (cereals, bread, spread,coffee,milk-it’s okay taking into consideration the amount we just paid for the room.) It’s also a bit crowded especially on breakfast hours so make sure to take your breakfast first thing so you can enjoy the place. The aircon is not 24/7 and it’s turned off during the hottest part of the day but we didn’t mind it since we’re mostly outside. Overall, our stay was good. It was a great place to rest and to keep our belongings safe while enjoying the city. Wouldn’t mind staying again in Footprints on our next visit:)
I've left nice footprints! ”
There's nothing much to say about my stay at Footprints Hostel. All I can say is that they have very accommodating staff. The price is okay. Nothing much to expect because its cheap. They have hot shower, hair dryers, airconditioner, fan, good breakfast, wifi, free printing service, massage chair, sofa to sit. They can also offer you cheaper tickets to the different tourist spots in Singapore and even in Malaysia. You won't feel alone because most of the guests who stays there talks to other guests whether they come from different parts of the world. MY STAY AT FOOTPRINTS HOSTEL WAS WORTH IT.
A memorable stay for the solo backpackers”
I stayed at Footprints Hostel for a week, and I was greeted with the most friendliest staff and welcoming hostel mates. Climbed up the stairs with my heavy luggage (so keep in mind about the stairs), entered my room and was greeted by the dim light with sleepy roommates and warm room because the air con was switched off at that hour. Settled into my bed and thinking that it was just going to be a passing hostel where I wouldn't make much memories but I was wrong, I've met so many great backpackers who I've befriended with and it all started with me saying "hello!" The toilet was also great where they would separate the male and female, even the showers and the toilets but keep in mind, the main toilet door will be wide open. You gotta bring your own toiletries, slippers and towel. The breakfast was more than enough from the toast, cereal and coffee or tea (up to you), although the breakfast area was a bit cramped but you can choose to eat outside and enjoy the fresh air!
Hi Nur Thank you for the wonderful and detailed review, we are very happy to know that you have made amazing memories here and experienced the beauty of travel and staying in a backpacker hostel :) Hope to host you again if you return to Singapore for another visit!
Best Hostel we've ever had”
Thank you, especially for guest receptionist, Shasha... Who welcome us and spoke Bahasa. We are group with 2 young children and elderly person. We stay in Peace room where 6 bank beds and en-suite bath room inside. The room is neat, simple and still fit for a Group. The bathroom is also clean and the shower worked proper. Even we took shower late at night, the hot water still came out. Surrounding in little india area, doesnt mean the hotel near from Little India MRT Station. Its so close with Rochor and Jalan Besar MRT Station. And there were so many resto around. Because near to Masjid Abdul Ghafur, so there were so many halal food. Overall... Its best Hostel we've ever tried. Come again someday? Absolutely....
Hi Rama Thank you for the lovely perfect score review! Hope to see you back in Singapore soon for another visit!
I’ve had a great stay at Footprints! They have approachable staff. They thoroughly explain what you should do when checking in. The amenities are nice. The comfort rooms are always clean, thanks to housekeeping! The rooms are cozy; pillow, mattress and blanket are all comfy. Our room is clean, though I think that is based on who your roommates are. They open the aircon on a certain time, but it’s okay because if you spend a lot of time outside, then when you get back again it’s already open. The free and unlimited breakfast is the best! I’ve had PB&Js and milkteas (I just mixed their tea with milk lol!) On the day of your check-out, if you still want to roam around, you can tell them that you’ll leave your luggage for a while then come back when you’ll have to leave for your flight. Footprints is hassle-free! I hope they branch out to other countries. Thank you, Footprints!
Hi Red, We are really glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and that you appreciated our services especially for mentioning our convenient location. We are glad that our staffs did their job well and were helpful to your trip. Looking forward to welcoming you soon again :)
a hostel to come back for”
The area is very near Rochor mrt..just a 3 min walk from the hostel. A nice Indian restau nearby..Al Bismi..which is by the way all their food tastes good. Also, its is at least 5 minutes walk from Bugis Street. And when all the stores at Bugis are closed and when you get hungry, just walk around Little India and you will find small restaurants open until 2 or 3 in the morning. The receptionist are very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast buffet consists of cereals and bread every morning, you can cook your own food.. you can do anything. Free use of internet through their PC's near the front desk. Everything is very convenient, especially if your are just outside touring Singapore the whole day. We are very well rested in this hostel. We will definitely stay here again if we come back in Singapore.
Best location, staff. ”
Location is great, close to bugis and little India MRT. Staff are very friendly and will assist you easily. Price is budget friendly if you want to stay together in Singapore with your family without spending too much money. Wifi is great with different options depending on your room location. Needs improvement with cleaning the bathroom to make it spot free. It can be noisy in the evening, but you will not mind it after walking the city all the day. Hot water is also a plus, with an option of a rainfall shower head. Breakfast is very basic with toasted bread with peanut butter and jelly, cereals, coffee and tea. Overall, our stay was great!
Best hostel I went to”
I and my family enjoyed our stay in the hostel. I went to different hostels but Footprints hostel is the best for us. The place is VERY NEAR the MRT and bus stations, near 24hr Mustafa store, and near police station. I love the fact that the staff are very nice and helpful and they're Filipinos. The family room with ensuite bathroom is great for big family. I love their BREAKFAST too, hehehe. Great value for money. I WILL DEFINITELY GO BACK TO FOOTPRINTS HOSTEL. :)
Excellent backpackers place in an awesome area”
I liked that they don't have that radical chic bohemien style. It' s a simple hostel that could improve its aesthetic impact, but offers excellent basic facilities. The bunk beds mattresses are very comfortable. Temperature in the dorm was acceptable. Common toilets are spacious, clean and never ran out of toilet paper and soap. The showers (hot and cold) pressure was just awesome. They even got hair-dryers! Wifi signal was good even in the rooms. Lockers provided in the dorms. Breakfast is basic but good enough. Hot and cold drinking water all day. The lobby is even equipped with computers. Mrt stations are really 10 mins walk away. Located in litle india which is a colorful lively and cheap area. Couldnt ask for more in singapore.
Ideal for Family of 6 up who is on a budget”
The staff are very helpful in terms of getting to places and which public transport is applicable. There are 2 nearest station Little India and Bugis. I find Bugis nearer than Little India. The free breakfast and internet connection are one of the best perks in this hostel. However for the hygienic person you might bring your own utensils. Ideal for travelers who always roam around in SG and just have a place to sleep. The place is Child friendly and CCTV's are everywhere.
Value for money”
We are composed of 6 persons and stayed in a room with 2 toilet. Each bed has its own outlet. We had a comfortable stay and if we will visit Singapore again, we'd probably choose to stay in Footprints Hostel.
Remarkable Service with Value of Money”
The hostel staffs have demonstrated utmost professionalism during our stay with Footprints. They are very friendly, polite and helpful. Apart from that, it is located with variety of eateries around the area and conveniently located near 2 MRT Stations. More importantly it is the wonderful stay with Footprints that matters.
Perfect for Budget Travellers”
Near to MRT (Jalan Basar, Rochor and Little India Stations) also Bugis and Little India is at a walking distance. There are restaurants around the area which sells decent food for as low as 4SGD. You can choose from Thai, Indian and Chinese. Going to the rooms might be challenging for travellers with huge and heavy luggage as the stairs are quite steep and there is no elevator. Room is nice, toilet and shower rooms are clean. Staffs are also nice. Overall satisfied.
Location, Staff and Place all thumbs up! a little bit glitch with the bathroom floor. It's slippery. But that's something can be fix right away,. Overall, if I wanna comeback i will not be confused where to stay. This something i can recommend to my friends and family. One other thing, its the first ever hostel I've stayed that give souvenir. Thanks Footprints!
The hostel is located very conveniently for public transportation and the free breakfast is self serviced which is good. I must state that two members of the staff called Job and Dauris are doing a wonderful job. They were both very polite, respectful and professional. I recommend footprints to any future travellers.
Hi Rohana Thank you for your favourable review about our hostel's staff Job and Darius, we are glad they were of excellent customer service to you. Hope you will return again for another visit soon!
Decent and comfy”
We had a pleasant stay in Footprints Hostel. If you're looking for place to crash during the night and where to leave your stuff during the day, then Footprints is a good option. Rates are very affordable, location is good (Little India)-- there's a 7-Eleven nearby and it's walking distance to a hawker center, a mini market and the Little India MRT station. As for restrooms, hot and cold shower is working well, toilet has a bidet shower... We had a bit of an issue with bed bugs in one of the beds in the private room though.
Had a great time!”
The best thing about Footprints Hostel is its location, only a few meters from 2 MRT stations. The staff are also friendly and the room is clean. We enjoyed our stay. Thank you!
Hi INA Thank you for your kind feedback about our hostel's convenient location, friendly staff and clean rooms. We are glad very happy that you had a pleasant stay here. Look forward to welcoming you again in Singapore!
Cozy and Accessible Hostel”
We got a 6 pax family room with shared bathroom. Didn’t quite expect that much since it’s a hostel and learned about the limited time usage of aircon in our room. It isn’t quite a problem since we’re mostly outside touring around the Singapore. I understand we have to personally put on the beddings but I think the room could still be improved especially the smell and the cleanliness. It’s unexpectedly surprising we’re able to sleep comfortably on the first night of our stay maybe because out of exhaustion walking from our conference venue. Very much satisfied about the speed of the wifi connection, hospitality of the hostel’s on duty guest relation officers, hot showers to ease up our tired muscles, and the hostel’s close proximity to an MRT station (Rochor).
