Boat Quay is one of the major points of interest in Singapore with it’s fair share of bars and restaurants.  Most first time visitors to Singapore like to take an Instagram photo with the Merlion or Marina Bay Sands in the background and these sites are about a 10 minute walk away.

The metro is very convenient in Singapore and there are 2 metro stations within a short walking distance of the 5footway.inn, Raffle Place and Clarke Quay.  These make travel between the airport / bus station very easy.

    I think the best of all facility is the free sim with 100MB data! We end up having the need to buy new sim when traveling internationally, atleast for data to access maps! Good to know its at a walkable distance from most points of interest, yet its so economical!!! The most common prob in shared accommodation in the plug points. Good to know they have one for each bed.

    5Footway Inn Project Boat Quay looks amazing and is a great place to stay on a budget. It is always great to have convenient access to the public transport and major attractions. The view of Marina Bay Sands and the skyline is a plus. If I go, I guess I would just spare a day to laze at the hotel and enjoy the view at my balcony (If they have one).

    Looks like everything I need and want in a hotel is here. Free coffee and free SIM card are the best! Thanks for sharing. Will remember this when I head to Singapore.

    This looks like an awesome place to stay in Singapore! I’ve heard Singapore can get pricey so it’s nice to have a more affordable accommodation in mind – and thank you for the 10% off code! I love visiting wharfs in new cities and would love to wake up looking out onto the wharf every morning.

    Free coffee for 24 hours sounds too enticing to say no to. It is good that they have many types of room to fit a wide variety of travelers’ budget. When we get sim card for free without much hassle in a foreign country it definitely feels good!

    It is so nice that you can have free coffee here all day. It looks like a luxury hostel. I like that it offers free breakfast too. The bedroom looks comfortable, pleasant, and clean. I would definitely stay here if I would visit Singapore.

    The 5footway inn doesn’t look like a bad option for staying in Singapore at all. I agree that it can be very pricey for accommodation there, so this place seems affordable. That’s a good tip about booking online to get the free sim card with 100mb, that’s very useful when travelling! Love they offer free breakfast too, and in a very clean environment, I’ll remember this for when I’m next there.
