Was in Singapore for 1 night so I wanted to find somewhere convenient and cheap to stay. I felt 5footway was a good choice because it was a close walk to Nicoll Highway MRT and there are many restaurants and convenient shops nearby.

The room was clean, so was the shared common bath room. Simple breakfast was included. Overall it was a great place to stay and I would definitely go back when I am in Singapore. – Joshua T. of Malaysia at TripAdvisor
