Footprints Hostel
Reviewed 16 December 2011

I stayed here around December last year, got a good recommendation from a friend who had stayed a few weeks before me. Over all i liked this hostel, it had characters. Got clean sheet when checking in and had to returned when checking out. As i only stayed here for one night and arrived there from redeye flight, i couldn't say whether my bad sleep came from a bit smelly room or was just simply too tired. They had clean bathroom which was an important stuff for me, high pressure hot water shower in locker room style bathroom. Free internet in the lobby, comfy couch in communal area, and breakfast included, fair price for all those facilities. And they gave me refund cos i changed my 3 nights booking into 1 night, good thing. But i might wanna consider staying here again cos it's a bit far from MRT station.

We stayed one night. The lobby is fine, free WI-Fi is nice, free b-fast okay.

The rooms are totally cramped, people coming and going at all hours. Outside streets below are busy and noisy. Terrible place to get a good night's sleep.

Halls and bathrooms are scummy. Smelly and damp. Yuck.

I recommend spending more somewhere else.

The staff is friendly and so helpful here. Michelle will show you around and tell you all kinds of local things to do. The rooms are average, the showers are nice and hot with high pressure. This is a great place to go to meet other backpackers and is in a good location in Little India.

After arriving at Footprints, i was quite impressed. The hostel was clean, facilities are ok, and the staff were friendly. Only after the first night when at 11PM, people check in to our room (lights on, unpacking etc.), next was 1AM, same thing. This carried on through out the night at 3am 6am etc.

After complaining to the staff, they say that have no rooms specially for 24hr check in guests, and after speaking to other people at the hostel they all have the same complaints.

Overall, this hostel is ok, but dont stay they if you intend to stay for more that 8 hours.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else

Welcome to Footprints Backpacker Hostel - a HOME away from home! Looking for comfortable, clean and affordable accommodation in a friendly, cozy and relaxed environment?

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.
