We stayed as a couple in a double pod and had a bunch of friends staying in the female dorm on the floor above. I haven't stayed in a hostel for a while and this place was a really pleasant surprise! The pods are a great idea and make you feel like you have much more privacy. The beds are... More

Location is quite good but the facility is not that good. U can get a better hotel in the same area. Toilet is dirty, no hot water in the shower, no tv in the cabin. And u need to pay $2 for a towel. Also the shower and toilet are only located on the top floor.

An update to my previous review: Wink has now exceeded my expectations, particularly in the service department. First and foremost, this is a FRIENDLY place. The staff is extremely cheerful and helpful (both online and in person), pods are clean, comfortable and well-appointed (this time I noted how truly well-designed they are, with awesome considerate touches like smart lights that...

Hi beyondquantum, Thanks for your repeat visit and we are especially grateful you continue to scrutinise us closely and share your feedback! Delighted you had a good stay, albeit a short one. Much of the credit for the feel of the place really depends on the guests we host. When you checked-in during the small hours of the night, we... More

Wink Hostel is more than just a hostel. The amount of privacy you could have within the pods is just incredible. I am usually not very fond of the hostels for a number of reasons. One is my fear of being woken up by others and therefore unable to get a good sleep and/or waking others up. At Wink, this... More

Stayed for two nights at this excellent place. Great location (subway is literally steps away) and amazing clean spaces. The bed/ pod area was also quite comfortable, spacious and surprisingly private. I enjoyed the simple yet decent breakfast that was included in the rate. My only beef was with the showers which took a while to heat up in the... More

We have central bulk tank heaters (and spare ones) in both the Ladies a Gents shower rooms to ensure guests always have hot water (with spare and buffer), and these are generally activated during the mornings and late afternoons...

Perfect place to stay. Very good location, in heart of Chinatown, train station nearby. Rooms are very clean and cosy, staff very helpful. I wish other hostels were like Wink! Would definitely recommend this hostel!

Absolutely adored my stay here. I came from another similar hostel on the same street but the difference was immense. The open clean & bright spaces were just beautiful - amazingly extremely under-utilized! There were lots of them, so it was easy to find a space to yourself. The rooms were cute & clean as a whistle. I had a... More

Hi MaryOreally, Thank you for your generous remarks. We are delighted you had a good experience at Wink! You raised 2 items which are good departure points to elaborate/clarify. First, yes, the pods can be a little stuffy if you pull your curtains fully closed. We hesitated for a long while before installing curtains partly for regulatory reasons (authorities originally...

Yep that right 4 of us between 40-50 in a hostel and we were very comfortable. Great service, these people go out of their way to help you. Better than any other service I've had staying in hotels. Close to everything and has cold A/C.

Wink is a great option for travellers on a budget and considering what you get is great value for money. We booked a double pod (me and partner) and had nobody else in our room which was great. The bed linen is soft and the beds comfortable plus the room/pod is cleaned daily. The room is also air conditioned which... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colorful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
