We had never stayed in pods before and it suited us for Singapore as double rooms in hostels were very expensive but we wanted more privacy than a regular dorm. Wink hostel does exactly what it says on the tin. Great location a few minutes from metro.
We stayed in 2 single pods on our first night and found it great - spacious, quite private, individual lights and large secure lockers.
For the following night we moved to a double pod. This worked out slightly cheaper but was not as good. The room was far smaller even though there were 8 people rather than the 6 the previous night. The locker provided was the same size as for the single pod but now had to accommodate 2 people's luggage. Ours didn't all fit. Also the door opened directly onto our double pod so we didn't feel this one was as private.
Overall though still a good hostel and good value for Singapore. Good wifi and hot showers.
