Hostel itself was very clean, and staff was super friendly and helpful although the hostel lacked atmosphere. Most the guests seemed to be locals consisting of middle aged South and southeast Asian males and full Asian families. Location was good right next to the subway and little India. Breakfast was included but consisted of only toast.

As a my first mixed dorm hostel experience, I had a nice stay here in Footprints. Backpackers gonna love it. The location is quite strategic (5 minutes walk from Rochor MRT station), you can walk to the famous Mustafa center and Bugis Village. The bed's price is affordable for backpacker since I got 13 sgd per night for a bed...

The location is perfect, close to the metro station 2 minutes walking, don't stay in the room during the day because AC it's only on during the night, and the smell of the guests in the room, mixed with the hot inside of the room, make a bad mix. the beds are comfortables, there's free "all you can eat" breakfast...

They have a really neat&tidy dorm, clean bathroom (they even have hairdryer like in 3stars hotel!), movie room, internet full access in everyfloor, cctv so you feel secure, a very warm-hearted staffs and you can have it all for only bout SGD20/night/person. No doubt I'll stay...

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...

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...

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.

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
