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

Checked out if the Pod hostel and into Wink hostel. Like the bed area, room either side of mattress, to put things, curtain or blind would be nice. We stayed in the bohdi room, only 4 double pods was nice. Showers did not have anywhere to put your clothes, except on back of door, got wet sometimes.

I follow a part-time program in Singapore which requires me to come every month. Wink Hostel has always been my choice of accommodation, not only because it is close to my school, but also because the staff was always so friendly, welcoming and helpful. Here you find all the things you need: fridge, cooker, washer, dryer & iron board etc.... More

I really enjoyed my 2night stopover staying at Wink. The individual bunkspaces, semi-enclosed, each with a light,power socket and very comfortable beds. Having lockers for each guests luggage too made the bunkroom format very acceptable. The location is amazing; less than 2 blocks from the MRT station, and the same to a huge selection of cheap food-places.

Stayed here on my recent road trip to Singapore. Since I only arrive at night, street parking is easily available. Else, there is a multi-level car park just about 400m away. Lots of nice food around the area and below the multi-level car park. Staff are very friendly and attentive. Decent breakfast as you have toast, cereal and fruits, not... More

Hi Fatima, Thanks for giving Wink a try! I believed you folks stayed somewhere else in Singapore and detoured to sample our pods. Delighted (and relieved) your experience was decent!
