Clean, user friendly with nice staff. Comfortable beds in dorms - separated by walls, so one have a bit of privacy. You may leave your luggage for the whole day and use the bathroom facilities after collecting your stuff. Close to MRT.

Hi MonikaJ3, Great we had a chance to have you spend some time at Wink. Thanks! We also appreciate your straightforward and succinct pointers. We don't advertise it - but yes - guests are more than welcomed to use our facilities after check-out if they have a late flight to catch. A shower before a long flight, especially given the... More

This is my first time staying at Wink Hostel and it was a pleasant experience for me. What I really like about this hostel is the location. Located in Chinatown and only 5 minutes of walk to MRT. The service also good, I checked in very late around 10 PM, but the girl still smiles taking care of me. I... More

I visited Wink a few years back and when I returned again this past weekend, I am still happy with their service. Everything is still clean and bathroom too. Good location and good price. Will return again when I visit Singapore. Can't go wrong.

overall, I think wink hostel is really a good choice for you who wants to travel to Singapore with a budget. we chose a double-pod, which was 90 Singapore dollars. I love the lighting there, very romantic and special. I prefer a totally dark environment when I am sleeping, and wink hostel offered me this. Unlike other hostels or dorms,... More

Hi brothermalcolm, Just shared your review with the team - everyone was greatly appreciative and encouraged! Kind words like yours make a difference for folks here who sometimes face awkward guests and get a little bogged down with night shifts :). Hostel living is in a big part coloured by room-mates and other guests staying at the same time, and... More

The title of this review really does adequately sum up Wink. I dealt with three staff members, and they were very helpful. The hostel has a very comfortable feel and that includes the beds and bedding, though there is no private curtain like Adler hostel (see review for Adler). There is a private light switch and ample locker space inn... More

Hi Bobbywideadventures, Thanks for writing, notwithstanding it's a year since your stay! We do not get many complaints against our internet connectivity (the reverse of comments on decent connectivity is more often true). Looking into our Maintenance Records and Guests Issues update for May last year, we do acknowledge there might have been an episode of internet slowness. While inconclusive,... More

Spend a few nights at Wink, nothing but good things to say. Friendly and helpful staff, plenty of space, clean, cool and well restored traditional shophouse building in Chinatown. I recommend it wholeheartedly.

I stayed here for 4 nights after looking around and could have easily stayed longer! yes in terms of price, it is a little bit dear but I honestly think it's worth it The dorm itself- pod style beds, stayed in nothing like it before and loved it! Individual lights and socket, plus massive locker underneath! The showers are great,... More

Hi, Wink might be one of the best places to stay in Singapore. It is very clean, extremely cosy, and the unique "pod" system with lockers at the bottom and keycard access to the rooms was pretty comfy, and overall safe too. Wi-fi was really fast. It's like 3-5min walk from Chinatown MRT, nearby to some nice food streets/courts if... More

Hi, Many thanks for your endorsements! Really glad you mentioned our 24 hour service. This is something we struggle to sustain given the manpower constraints in Singapore, the general aversion of youngsters to take on night shifts, and widespread practice amongst hostels to do otherwise! We view this as part of our service (always there for guests) and the overall... More

A great place to stay in terms of location - very close to the MRT and in the middle of Chinatown close to supermarkets, shops and restaurants. As a solo female traveller I definitely felt safe in the area. The keycard locking system for the rooms and lockers is good and I really liked how only the light above your... More

Hi Kesamokki, Thanks for your stay at Wink and the kind words you left behind to share! You hit the nail on a few traits we seem to have picked up. Yes, we seem to be hosting a fair share of solo ladies travellers, perhaps for the safety/convenience features we emphasize a little more. Yes, we are not quite a... More
