Our family had a nice stay in Footprints. All the staff were friendly and accommodating especially Francis Menor, Filipino by heart. My kids were so comfortable talking and playing with him. Breakfast was good too, they have enough for everyone ;) Plus, we got to meet a lot of friends/backpackers at the hostel.

The hostel is worth staying.There is free breakfast that is good and enough for everyone .The free internet and phone usage had been very helpful to us to contact our friends in Singapore. The front desks are friendly and approachable.The comfort rooms are shared,however, there are separate rooms for ladies and guys. The toilets are clean.The hostel is also near to most of the tourist attractions and walking distance to bus and MRT stations.

This place is really worth staying. Low price and good service. The front desk is realy kind!! You know, it's singapore!!! The location is quite convient since it's very close to many attractions, but you do need sometime to walk to the MRT, umm of course acceptable. Though in Little India but still quite safe for girls going out late. The breakfast is ok, they even offer apples and oranges!!! The public bathroom is clean, but not always.. and the hair drier sometimes work but most of the time it didn't... I think that's the only thing they should improve.
