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!

Stayed for 4 nights in the double pod. Overall stay was good. The place was clean. Perhaps in the ladies bathroom, the management could provide a bench or rack to put the toiletries bag. Location was excellent with the train station a walk away and there were many choices for eating out. Would definitely recommend this to our friends.

This is the first time I've stayed in a hostel, and I must say I had a nice experience. The place is overall like a tiny shared apartment with shared kitchen, bathroom, and bed - everything designed simple and clean. The place is always full, and you can meet new friends from all around the world - especially during breakfast... More

Wink Hostel is located in the heart of Chinatown, very close to Chinatown MRT station, food street, and many of the local attractions such as the Chinatown Heritage Centre, Buddha Tooth Relic Temple, etc. The dorm rooms themselves are quite well laid out, with a comfortable pod per person. Each pod has a comfortable mattress, light, power socket, and there... More
