Thanks for the nice service. Everything was great except the strong smell in the dorm room.

Don't understand why they wouldn't price match the hostelworld price when I was extending my stay at reception, I had to check out then check back in which saved us the $6/night price difference. Breakfast was poor, just bread as they didn't have a toaster. Overall a clean and safe hostel with good bathroom facilities and close to Bugis MRT, cinema, mcdonalds etc.

Hi , The promotional rates are only applicable to new guests who have not stayed at Footprints Hostel for the past 3 months. Guests who are extending their stay are charged at the walk-in offer rates. An exception was made in your case when you checked out and checked in again with another online booking. Besides bread with different jams, we also offer cereals & milk with coffee and tea for breakfast. Toasters are also available for guests to toast their bread during breakfast hours.

Zul who works the front desk is amazingly helpful and positive. He made my stay that much more amazing. Thanks footprints for a wonderful time i'll be back.

Decent mattresses. Right in the centre of Little India, amazing foot for five dollars just around the corner. On the downside, only some rooms have full bag lockers, the rest you have to make do with the wee ones.

My only two comments would be that my padlock was too big for the holes on the lockable cabinets and that the bathroom cleanliness wasn't great from my experience. Otherwise I was quite happy.

I expected more for the price. The staff did not get involved for anything. I felt very disappointed when I got in to make check in ...it was raining. And the reception guy said... don't wet the floor.!! Instead of help me to get my bags or opened the door.... he was worried about that. The AC is was not working during the nights.. and we were 12 in one room. It was very important to have one in proper conditions

You get what you paid before ... Low budget hostel that can reach changi airport and all amusements fastly. Easy to look for cheap dishes around the hostel. One certain thing, bring your own padlock to use the locker in your room. Overall is good.

Bit of a funky smell to the hostel. Excellent facilities but not entirely sure what all the rave reviews are about! Haven't stayed elsewhere in Singapore so maybe its the best of an average bunch!

Bathroom was shabby, Room sticky and hot and the atmosphere reminded me more of an old prison really.

Came here for 2 nights with two of my friends, we stayed in the 10 bed mixed dorm and had a great experience! Everything was so so clean and the air conditioning was on 24/7 which made it very comftorable coming out of the Singapore heat! The staff were lovely, helpful and efficient! Will definitely be returning!

I was very disappointed to find out when I arrived that Footprints only allows A/C to be used during the hours of 7pm-9:30pm. If I would have known that ahead of time I wouldn't have never booked a room there.

Hi, The aircon timing is from 7pm to 9.30am the following morning. We do state in our website that the aircon in the rooms and dormitories are time controlled. You may have missed out on this information when making your reservation online. Besides the aircon timing issue, we hope you enjoyed your stay in Footprints and had a great time in Singapore. Cheers!
