Nestled in the center of Chinatown, I found this to be a particularly busy hostel. In my experience, it was noisy all the way up until 1AM, and I paid extra for a loft room, hoping for a quieter experience. The AC in my room only sort of worked, and dripped water on the table in the room. On the... More

Perfect location, just 20 meters from mrt station, in the heart of chinatown. Little bit tired and claustrophobic rooms. Very nice and friendly staff. It's my second stay here, nothing changed. If I'll look next time for cheap two night stay in Chinatown I'll pick 5footway. Thanks!

This place is literally a few steps from the MRT station. Very accessible and convenient to stay here. The 6-bed dorm room where I stayed was really tidy and had clean, fresh sheets and pillow covers. The staff were accommodating and polite. The very affordable price for your stay comes with free breakfast, water and coffee which was really nice.... More

Security was very good, two rounds of lock (front door and room door) to enter your own room. Separate bathrooms and toilets which were very convenient. They were clean.No unwanted smell.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
