I really like this place!! They have mixed dorm, male dorm and female dorm. Also there are separate shower room and toilet for male and female. There are 6-8 beds per dorm. I got a bed in a 8-dorm. I found the bed was so comfy, there is a personal reading light in each pod, there is a little space... More

Singapore is expensive. We should not have gone for 3 nights and neither should you if you can't afford the Wink, because the cheaper places to stay are dirty! Wink was really clean. We wanted a private room (me and my boyfriend) but they only offered dorm beds. We were lucky and happened to get an empty room. It was... More

It's my 2nd stay here. This hostel is using a 'pod style' of bed which feels more private than the regular bunk bed used in most of hostel. As I am not a backpacker type of traveler, that kind of thing is very important for me. The bathrooms are always available for us to use, means that they have enough... More

Hi Vesta5675, Ouch... it's embarrassing to have your issues aired publicly. No excuses - sorry - the air-conditioning in our Flame of the Forest Room did leak over last weekend. We cleaned the filter immediately, and had our contracted AC vendor come immediately the next working day for a thorough check. This is disturbing as we already have very regular... More

We stayed in a pod room. Cost us $50 Singapore dollars a night so not the most backpacker budget friendly but it is Singapore. The place was immaculate. Very clean rooms and bathrooms. Showers were fantastic. Right in the heart of backpacker central. They were very helpful with directions and let us get away with making a fair bit of... More

Pods are great, air con was even better. Located real close to Chinatown MRT station. Wi-fi was fine in my room, but I was adjacent to the reception. Price the only downside but all of Singapore accom was pricey so they more or less hit the mark given what they offer.

It would be my next choice also. I stayed for two nights, good location, only takes few minutes to MRT station. The pod was clean and comfortable, a really nice place to stay. Will recommend this to my friends.

Stayed here for 3 night to explore SG, location wise, few steps from MRT china town. Pod is clean, daily makeup. Shower room is heaven after exploring this hot and humid island. Wifi is not well connected sometimes. All in all i gave this hostel 2 thumbs up ! recommended!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
High style and high tech converge at Wink Hostel - the flashpackers’ travel accommodation of choice. Without sacrificing coziness and budget of the traditional backpackers’ inn, Wink innovates beyond conventional hostels in design, quality and conveniences.Amongst the very first worldwide to tout “pod” style beds, Wink’s own designer twist to the concept indulges travellers their private sleeping sanctums, while allowing for socializing in individual rooms.Queen-sized pods are available for couples travelling together, or the traveller who yearns a bigger bed. Ladies dormitories, complete with vanity counters, provide female guests better peace of mind and a little luxury on the side. ... more   less
