The breakfast was pretty basic, but definitely generous in variety and amount. The location is superb-just minutes away from the Chinatown MRT and the size of the room and bed are alright. Free towels for private room, too. WiFi worked well. The only thing that bothered me was the bathroom walls. They need some scrubbing. Other than that, its all...

The room definitely wasn't how it looks like from the picture. They used yellow light instead of the white just make the whole room looks uncomfortable and dirty. The location wasn't bad just located about 100m away from Chinatown station if u take the PAGODY STREET exit.

This "inn" is located in Chinatown at a central location. That is the only good thing about the place. Don't trust the pictures on the internet. The double room looks very bad. Pay 15 sgd more and get a real double room somewhere else! The employees are among the worst people I spoke in Singapore. Very unfriendly, unprofessional, unhelpful, etc....

Stayed in the hostel for 1 night. As the Malaysian Ringgit continues to weaken this place is a godsend for a poor Malaysian like me. At only SGD 17 a night (mixed dorm) I arrived not expecting much. To my pleasant surprise, this place exceeded my expectations in certain aspects. PROS: - Price - Location: very cute area of Singapore....

The location is great, close to subway station and to cool places in china town. The hotel provides a smartphone free of charge which was really useful. We got upgraded to a bigger room. The room we got was filthy. We found hair that wasn't ours in our bed sheets. The room smelled of moist as well as the entire...

I'm surprised with the free handy device provided by 5footway.inn during my stay in the hostel. Unlimited international calls to certain countries and internet access. Bed and washroom are clean. Staff are friendly as well. Great location.

The hostel is in a good location, and the staff are nice. The wifi is good and the computers in the lobby are fast. However the room we had and the hallways did smell of damp and at times our bed felt a little damp. Our bed was a double but it was as a bunk bed and was just...

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Project Chinatown 2 is the latest addition to the 5footway.inn brand of hostels. Tucked in the quaintest corner of Chinatown, adjoining the laidback, colourful Ann Siang Hill area where you can find the coolest pubs, cafes and the occasional art galleries, Project Chinatown 2 promises to bring yet another unique experience to our other properties. Project Chinatown 1 is all about the action Chinatown has to offer; Project Sultan is about showcasing local and regional artists to our well-travelled guests. Project Chinatown 2 aims to bring to life the quaint, back-alleyway feel of yesteryear Singapore, with the weekend flea market at the back lane. You can take for granted the same modern facilities that is synonymous with 5footway.inns: Fastest WIFI throughout the premises, free breakfast spread complete with fruits and fresh milk, comfortable anti-dustmite beds, individual storage space as well as a clean, safe environment. To top it off, all our beds come with individual universal power sockets (no need for that adapter!) ... more   less
