Perhaps this hostel is a reflection of Singapore itself. Modern, excellent facilities, helpful people on the whole. But it was just missing something that a hostel should have, that extra charm. Perhaps it was just when we were staying here, but the other guests were not particularly sociable and neither were the staff - though they were helpful when called... More

We were comfortable and satisfied in our 5 days/4 nights stay. Good location (near MRT station), friendly staff, affordable but comfortable room (we had 2 toilet and bathroom in our room for 8 persons), breakfast was good (bread, cereals, coffee), each bed has its own socket, lockers were also available for each occupant.

Location was good, a short walking distance from MRT station. Unable to sleep well because of the door keep banging. Hopefully the management can do something to the door closer. -Soundproof can be improved -Thick dust was found at corner of walls and under the bed. -Aircond can only be switched on from 7pm-9am >.< Other than that, this place...

We're Budget backpackers so wanted cheap accommodation, knew Singapore was going to be more expensive and all the hostels we found were about £10 a night as was this one, £6 for the first night if you get their offer. Beds were comfy, shared toilets were always clean and the free breakfast of cereal, toast, tea and coffee was ideal... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and I got the lowest rate for mixed dorm which saved a lot of my budget. Breakfast is nice, they have cereal + bread + coffee + tea + milk. MRT is about 2 minutes walk. I didn't really traveled the surroundings but there's a food stall across the hostel.

Good place for a couple of days! You get what you pay for inclusive a standard breakfast buffet. Rooms are clean and fine with lockers. No aircondition in the dorms, so you will get a bit sweaty! Weird location and a 15 min. Walk to nearest metro station.

Finding somewhere to stay in Singapore on a tight budget was quite difficult. Footprints Hostel was one of the most reasonably priced places we could find at the last minute! It's cheep but cheerful - friendly staff but the bedrooms are fairly basic and quite hot. We stayed in an 8-bed dorm but there was a couple who were sharing... More

Our 10 bed room was very very smelly and hot, the air con only comes on between 7pm - 9:30am which is a relief but would be good during the day too! Bathroom was disgusting. No lift so you have to carry all your luggage up and down the stairs. Location was ok, close by to the MRT.

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
