If you're travelling alone and want a quiet place to park your things in and have a good night's rest after a day of exploring the city, Wink Hostel is the place to be. The amenities are of high standard, clean and comfortable "bedpods" and friendly common areas. Highly recommended.

The "capsule bed" is really comfortable (however, i didn't sleep well because it's my first time to stay at a hostel... feeling kind of nervous lol). Also, and the locker is big enough to put in a 22'' suitcase. Luckily met some great room-mates, every one would lower their volume when there were ppl sleeping.

This hostel was absolutely clean, quite and safe. Location is safe enough to look around neighborhood (as a female tourist by myself) even at night and close to MRT and Clarke Quay. I also like they keep their room and restroom clean. The staff were friendly and nice. Also, they handled my e-mails quickly. I had really good days in... More

We couldn't afford a hotel so we were looking (online) for a family room in a hostel - couldn't find any in a convenient location and the "pod" concept caught my eye. I emailed and received a reply within minutes, answering all my questions. So, I booked 4 pods in a 6-bed dorm and hoped for the best. I had... More

The location is near the mrt station. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Front desk open 24 hour. They also provide breakfast for me in the early morning. And I totally impressed with that. The pods were clean and comfy. Very affordable price and it was a good choice to stay in Singapore

I was impressed by the cleanliness and cozy ambiance of the hostel. In the heart of chinatown and just a block away from chinatown MRT, very accessible. Staff were very accommodating. Affordable price and it was really a good choice. 2 thumbs up!

cb h, Owner at Wink Hostel, responded to this review

Hi – Thanks for taking time to write! On air-conditioning, we debated between staff controlling the temperature or leaving the remote for guests to regulate the temperature yourselves in each room. The latter was the better option for several reasons which I’d not go into here. However, what that means is we could not always satisfy everyone who has different... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
