I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. I find this hotel is nice and very close to the MRT station. I think the overall performance is good of this hotel. But I need to walk to 3rd floor for washroom and shower. It is a bit inconvenience. Also, there is no shower gel and shampoo provided in the shower... More

Hi Michael, Thanks for taking time to write. Sorry you found a few things wanting in your experience. We chose to locate Wink in a conserved and historical Chinatown shophouse to let guests have a little more of the local flavors. Unfortunately, one trade-off is such conserved buildings are under strict regulations on where we can locate certain amenities like... More

Wink is located in the centre of Chinatown, an ideal base for exploring the city. Further, it is a very clean hostel: toilets, showers, living spaces, everything is meticulous kept clean. Breakfast is included. Wifi is good. Towels for hire. We slept in the double bed dorm (SD 90) and in the normal dorm (SD 50). Both rooms looked very... More

Wink Hostel was a nice hostel. Great beds and clean big bathrooms. Doorm with A/C. The included breakfast (toast and cereal) was decent. We found that the prize was high for a dorm room, but maybe that is just how Singapore is. We couldn't check in and get to our dorm until 3 pm. That was very annoying after traveling... More

Hi Emmarh93, Thanks for your comments. Yes - Singapore is very expensive for accommodations. Amongst hostels, Wink is not the most expensive by a margin. Amongst hostels, however, we believe we provide the best value! On a communal space to bed ratio, we remain unmatched; and on a privacy/security comparison, we believe our investments in 24 hours service, SmartCard door... More

I stayed here for three nights at the end of my 2 month trip around Asia. The rooms and bathrooms were amazingly clean, breakfast was good, location was perfect - just round the corner from the nearest MRT station, and staff were more than helpful. By this point in my trip, I was travelling by myself so assumed I would... More

Please do not let the word hostel deceiving you because quality does not always equal to the price that you pay. For me, the price WH offers is very reasonable, given Singapore's living condition and what hotel offered you. What I liked most about Wink hostel is the cleanliness and how comfortable the bed is !! Yes, if I could,... More

They are very efficient, replied my mails right after I sent the questions.

The room was cleaned everyday, but didn't need to worry personal belongs, they provides lockers with smartcard access. The kitchen, shower room, lounge,... More

A little bit pricey for a hostel but its location is excellent, very near to MRT station and to Chinatown heritage sites. Hostel is clean, wifi is excellent, everyday housekeeping, safety and security is no problem in terms of location and the hostel itself.

I stay only one night! The receipt welcome us like an alien meet the earth habitant which means very normal welcome. The hotel is clean, new experience to stay with double level and meet strangers. But the price is expensive and I expect a free towel or own bathroom. If you want to meet new strangers, different experience of how... More

Great clean hostel in good location close to mrt. A little expensive but I think everywhere is pricey in singapore so it's ok. Nice staff and great layout of rooms. There wasn't really a sociable Vibe to meet other travellers of you're alone, but that didn't really matter.

Hi LACdublin, We appreciate your comments! Yes Singapore is very expensive for accommodation and we try hard to strike the right balance between costs (rental, amenities, breakfasts, 24 hour service, more space than others etc) and price (haven't raised for close to 2+ years). Not always easy, and we are always encouraged by feedback like yours.... Delighted your stay proved... More

I stayed at Wink hostel for three nights and found it conveniently located a couple of minutes walk from the mrt station. It was even a short stroll down to boat quay and Clarke quay for places to eat and hang out. I stayed in the female dorm with 8 beds. The room was clean and I liked the way... More
