Was very average. Room was cleanish.. for a hostel not expecting much but a few hairs in bed etc. Bathrooms were very clean and breakfast was included (toast cereal coffee). Location is in Little India right beside railway stop. Would help people to know that this is in little india though not the central city.

This place is very close to Little India Metro station. And close to Marina Bay. Their service is ready 24 hours per day. Friendly people with good facilities. Breakfast is really good they are giving free. And they have some offers and discounts for some visiting places.

This place is ok but I feel it could be a lot better. The atmosphere is a bit weird as I feel it isn't really a backpacker place but more somewhere for people travelling from India etc to stay somewhere cheap and so it doesn't have that hostel atmosphere. The downstairs area is really nice and well presented, but as...

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...

The hostel is very close to the metro station and easy to find. However the room provided (dorm) was very hot as aircond is not function very well. The dorm I booked was $12 per bed dorm. Hope the owner of the hostel can take notice of this problem. Like other hostel, no towel, shampoo and soap were provided. Free...

This hostel was not the worst, but not the best either. Its close to Rochor station, which is easily accessible to all the major tourist attractions. Beds were comfortable. Shower was really nice. Could leave bags when on late flight. Breakfast was included but it was a light breakfast consisting of bread and sugary cereals. Only cold water to wash...

We stayed in this hostel Jan. 26-29, 2017 with my family (all 19 of us). It was indeed a pleasant stay. The location of the hostel is excellent as it is very near both mrt station (rochor) and bus station. The rooms are clean as well as the comfort room and bathroom. The staff were so helpful.

Staying in Little India

Neighbourhood Profile
Little India
With a strong local Indian community, this pocket of Singapore can feel like another place and time. Wander past traditional barbershops while local residents in brightly coloured saris patronize retailers from decades past. Peruse streets lined with colourful shops as the aroma of curry tempts you to indulge. Listen to the Bollywood music echoing from storefronts and take in the stalls selling bright flowers, fabrics, and spices. At the 24-hour, four-level Mustafa Shopping Centre, you can shop through the night and find everything from pharmacy and grocery items to Bollywood DVDs and diamond necklaces. Singapore’s Little India offers a colourful, lively taste of the subcontinent and is well worth the visit.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to Footprints Backpacker Hostel - a HOME away from home! Looking for comfortable, clean and affordable accommodation in a friendly, cozy and relaxed environment? You have come to the right place. Footprints Backpacker Hostel is conveniently located right smack in the middle of the culturally rich Little India, the centre for Singapore's Indian community. This ethnic quarter is packed with interesting treasures awaiting to be discovered. Retaining much of its authentic charm and distinct identity, this district is not what you would expect of the generally rather ‘sanitized’ Singapore. It is one of the most colourful and exotic places to visit on the island. The streets are dotted with small shops and eateries and if you are a bargain-hunter, cheap-gets are aplenty. ... more   less
