Yes, it's a backpackers hostel, but you are made to feel in the way and not welcome. When eating breakfast, directly at the end of breakfast you are told to move so they can clean and they take your chair before you have even got up!
The staff are not very helpful and you are not made to feel welcome.
You make your bed yourself and are using a clean sheet, but the sheet you sleep under is re-used per guest.
There aren't enough lockers per room, nor are they a good size and some are broken.
Air con is timed and cannot be changed, so it will only be on from 7pm to 8:30am.
WiFi is abysmal and only works in the common area, even though it is advertised to be in the rooms and recently improved.
The common area is just reception which you are made to feel in the way again.
On the plus side, the showers and toilets are clean and well maintained.
- 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
