5footway.inn Project Chinatown 1

Project Chinatown 1, opened in September 2011, is the first project by 5footway.inn and it has become one of the favourite hostels and budget accommodations due to the strategic location. Housed in revamped shophouses as part of the heritage-rich Chinatown precinct, we aim to become an extension of your journey and seamlessly blend into a part of your travel experience.

Make new friends and share your travel experience with other guests at our cosy lounge and green terrace. Our private rooms and dorms provide options for different type of travellers of various group sizes.

Apart of cultural places of interest, Chinatown is filled with restaurants and food centres serving great local food, which open until late night. You can approach our friendly staff for recommendations and explore the vicinity through the eyes of a local. Project Chinatown 1 is also within walking distance to the lively Clarke Quay, Boat Quay, and downtown Singapore. For your convenience, Singapore tourist attractions tickets can be purchased from our frontdesk staff at discounted prices.

Towels are complimentary 1 piece per guest for private room bookings. For dorm bookings, they are available for loan at the minimal fee of $2 per piece.

The shophouse, with its five-foot-wide walkway, embodies both an appreciation for the Southeast Asian climate as well as the desire to enable and encourage community spirit through daily close interaction.

5footway.inn is for the social explorers, we believe that interaction with people is an important part of travel experience and we encourage explorations through the eyes of a local. To continue our success story, in 2013, 5footway.inn opened its first boutique hotel in Macau, which has been very popular as we stay committed to offer engaging and personable hospitality.

Part of The Uncharted Co., 5footway.inn was started in September 2011 and is now the biggest hostel chain in Singapore with properties located in the heritage-rich Chinatown, Boat Quay and Kampong Glam vicinity.
