Me and my fiance traveled to Singapore last May 17, 2012 and we spent our 1st night at Wink hostel. They were fully booked from May 18 to 20 that's why we only stayed there for 1 night. At first, I was in doubt if sleeping in a hostel is a good idea (especially that the rooms are shared with other people). It was my first time. We booked a Doubles pod thru Skype and Fathu was very accommodating. He answered ALL my questions, literally even if my questions were not very related with my booking. (particularly directions, tourist attractions, taxi fare, etc) Bottom line is the staff of Wink hostel surely knows how to please their clients. After speaking with Fathu, my apprehensions were all gone.
Our room was clean, there were another couple staying under our pod. The place was homey (feels like home). Their free breakfast was nice, kinda felt like I was home but nicer. :) The bathrooms were VERY clean, there were some free stuff as well like shampoo, body wash, facial wash, and many more! It's amazing.
Their wifi is free and there are laptops available in their wifi areas. By the way, they are located in Mosque Street in Chinatown, walking distance to MRT & Chinatown Market.
Overall, my experience with Wink hostel was excellent. Couldn't say anything bad about them. I'd highly recommend this hostel.
