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...

My kids love wink hostel so much, maybe because they have their very own beds, lights and outlet in their capsule bed. They like the idea. Its cozy and its clean. What i dont like is we have to go upstairs to use the toilet. I hope each floor have their own toilet. Hope we have our very own television...

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! Yes - our varied-pods room allow families like yours to book an entire room for additional privacy. And I'd add that your young ones probably had fun climbing all the...

I stayed at Wink Hostel on my recent trip to Singapore and couldnt be any happier. It was a great location with very polite and helpful staff. Clean, tidy and very comfortable. Although they werent really 'pods' as i imagine them to be, i thought the 'pod' would have a privacy door/panel to make it a 'pod' but it was...

Hi Larnzdybs, Thanks for your kind words and we are very glad your stay worked out! Sorry the auto-lights in your pod was a distraction. Hmmm... this has received good feedback and served the purpose it was designed for in general. The idea was you'd use your Smart Card to unlock your room door, which then automatically triggers your dedicated...

Everything about the hostel is modern and clean. The staff were friendly and helpful and were able to arrange our shuttle bus to the airport as well as giving us advice on how to get around the city. The location is great, one street along from the main Chinatown market with lots of restaurants and the wonderful Maxwell Street food...

Rooms and showers were very clean, staff were very helpful and wifi connection was great. Hostel is very central. Great experience as never shared a room before, however not sure I would do it again as we did have a snorer in the room which isn't the hostels fault but you never know who what guests there will be etc....

Hi TulaTango, Thank you for taking time to pen your thoughts. Very sorry you met a snorer and sorry our pods' design which mitigates noise quite a bit still failed to muffle this enough for you! This is unfortunately a risk in communal living. We're grateful you chose Wink to try hostel living! And notwithstanding the snoring issue, we are...

A unique hostel in the fun China Town district. Impeccably clean with great free breakfast. Pod type beds in dorm rooms ate comfy and novel. Good value for Singapore. Recommend staying at this place. Nice social areas but they did not seem to get used very much.

It was a sudden trip and our usual hotel was already fully-booked. So we opted to check for another place to stay. Happy to bumped off with Wink. You name it - value deal, cleanliness, privacy, near to metro, near to restaurants and convenience stores and good service.

Wink Hostel was my first hostel experience and it was aboslutely great. Never disappointing. Location: Located in Chinatown, just a couple of minutes from the MRT station, a stone throw away from food hawkers and shopping district. Other than local and Chinese food? Walk further and you'll find Mcdonalds. Pretty safe if you'll stroll late at night. Service: Pretty impressive....

Hi aleksdshooter, Great to have you stay and many thanks for sharing your experience! Just shared your kind remarks with the team and all are grateful and encouraged.

It took me a long time to choose accommodation in Singapore. I'm glad that I chose Wink, which was really a "luxury" hostel in a super convenient location in Chinatown. Extremely clean, quiet and comfortable. The staff were all really nice. Highly recommended.

Great hostel in heart of China Town, 1 min from MRT. Many shops and cheap restaurants nearby and a short walk from the trendy Clarke Quay area.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
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.
