Recent guest reviews

I stayed for 4 days. The staffs were friendly and helpful. The room I stayed in was clean, with sheets and blankets smelled so good and not damp, making me and my family had a good night sleep. The aircon was also working well. However, the room was so small for 4 persons to move around. :D The female only bathrooms were clean enough, while the other bathroom for mixed gender was so smelly :( I wish they can add bidet spray in the toilet. The location itself is easy to find and at the very center of chinatown complex, surrounded by shops, restaurants, and just a very short walk to Chinatown MRT station. It feels too crowded for me, though, but it is a great location if you wish to explore a lot of things rightaway.

Great localitation, near metro Chinatown, near restaurant, bars and shops ,Staff very helpful I didn’t understand why the hotel charged me in my account the total reservation, before I arrived. I arrived at hotel I paid again. In reception they sai me , the first charge was returned after some days. I do t understand because I have to pay twice. I could need this money

reasonable price but the room is very lit space for us. but the best thing is we get our early breakfast for our early morning check out. in the center of touristy place like chinatown and near from the mrt station!

Stayed at project 1 unit 56, Rooms arrangements were weird. Not all lockers were working. Toilet doors/slider were broken too.. Basic Amenities like towels need to be rented unlike those other backpackers where basic towels are given.

Reception and the common room are location in a separate building from the rooms. There in two buildings alone the road. Rooms are smaller and in worst shape then their hostel at Boat Quay. The beds are shakey and feel like they'll fall apart. Also not all lockers come with locks. The bathrooms are clean, however this part of the building is incredibly hot and some of the walls are crumbling away. There's only 2 toilets for 13 rooms. One contains a shower, but there's 3 others available. Location is great for Mrt,Chinatown and hawker food.

Having been a returned customer for several years, I could see a decline in the hostel quality, but this year experience is exceptionally bad. There used to be some fruits and peanut jam for breakfast. This year the breakfast only limits to bread, milk, cereal, and jams. The coffee machince is broken. Wifi is essentially non-existence in my room and the staffs have been saying "We will looking into it" for two years.. :). Toilet hygene is down, too. I hope the management can look into this and keep up the standards.

The hotel is near the subway and China Town nearby, so it's convenient to do explore Singapore. We stayed in a 6-bed room, it's quite small. WC is not clean, need to improve this. Good service with free breakfast and drinks for all day.

The location of this budget inn is very nice, right beside the A exit of Chinatown MRT. At that time I was given a simcard that can be used for internet. The rooms are small but clean, the shared bathrooms are also quite clean. Breakfast is provided in the form of coffee, milk, water, bread, jam and apples.

Stayed here with our small family of 3 and booked and paid for a family room almost a year out. When we arrived they took us to a premises nearby (different from what we booked). When they showed us the room it was nothing like what we had booked. They and moved us to a dorm room. We felt this might be what they do: get a booking for a family room and then put you in a dorm.... It was awful. The room was so noisy as it was right on pagoda street. The windows are the original ones and don't keep out any noise. There are only about 3 shared bathroom/toilets with the shower above the toilet: this means the toilet is either busy most of the time and then when you get to use it the toilet is soaked. The venue is quite expensive for what you get. Singapore is so easy to get around so choose another area like Balestier road and bus it to Chinatown.

Previously we stayed at 5footway.inn Project 2, but when I knew about Project 1, we always stay here. The location is very near to Chinatown MRT station and in the middle of Chinatown market. The price is also good for budget backpacker. They have simple breakfast that enough to start your day ;)
