Wink Capsule Hostel
Ranked #14 of 233 Specialty Lodging in Singapore
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 16, 2013

Arguably the best hostel in Singapore for backpackers.

Cons.
1. The complimentary breakfast duration feels too short. For the amazing night life in Singapore, it'd be impossible to wake up in time for it.
2. The cheap massage joints around, better to stay away from them.
3. Weak wireless internet connection in some of the corner pods.
4. No water jets in the bathrooms.

Pros.
1. Super comfy beds and sparkling clean corner rooms.
2. The location. China town is lovely to walk around, if a little adventurous you might even take 15 min walk to Clark Quay, 2 min walk to the China Town MRT, McDonalds almost next door.
3. The staff. Friendly yet extremely professional, its not easy.

There just might not be an end to the Pros, but i would highly recommend this hostel, its the best what that money can buy.

Thanks Wink Hostel, everything was brilliant, from booking online to the spacious pods and not forgetting the super friendly staff, there's really nothing to fault. Toilets were cleaned quite frequently so that was a big bonus. :)

A great place to stay..clean, helpful staff, alot of hangout area, free wifi, common area with TV computers and pantry and well located. Stayed there for 2 nights. Don't mind going there again especially travelling alone.
Only problem is the breakfast spread has limited selection and the ladder bar to the top bunk is small and painful during climbup

I am not your typical backpacker. I do not do hostels on any grounds but I made an exception. The Wink hostel was perfect for me. The staff were attentive & very hospitable. It is like living in a small house. Cleanliness is a big thing for me especially when it comes to bathrooms & toilets. Wink did their best to keep the place clean. Apart from hair in the sink occasionally that's as dirty as it got. I really enjoyed my stay here. Planning my next trip to Singapore. Although I'm the type of person to choose the Skyline hotel. Wink will most certainly do yet again. Loved it here. Great location, comfortable beds, helpful staff, great security for locking away personal items. The air conditioning in rooms is a blessing. Loved it loved it!

We stayed here for one night during a stop over. As we were only going to be in Singapore for 12 hours, we didn't want to spend a lot of money on a hotel. We stayed in a double pod, which was comfortable and cozy. My only recommendation would be to bring something that you can hang in front of your bed to 1. give you a bit of privacy and 2. block out the light when the door opens. The bathrooms were clean, the common areas were tidy, and the hostel actually didn't seem very busy.


It's in a great location in the middle of Chinatown. Very close to the metro and walking distance to Clarke Quay. Perfect for a short stay or for those on a budget who are staying for longer.

I wanted to try a little adventure back in my own country and I was very grateful to be given the chance to do so. Even though it was initially very awkward, but I enjoyed such little get-away to give myself opportunities to learn about the area and the things available for travelers to Singapore.

Wink hostel is a budget hostel with bunk beds. They have a great card system that give you a great sense of security as you know that only people staying in the room can enter the room. The card system also allow for easier access to your locker which it is just below your bunk beds.

They have a great, kitchen, laptop internet area, tv lounge and many areas where you can get away to read and relax. It was a wonderful hostel. Unfortunately, I felt that the kitchen was a little cramp during breakfast time, it would be great if it was slightly bigger.

Nevertheless, the overall experience had been wonderful and awesome. The staffs were always available to answer any enquiries, and they have alot of interest tour packages to recommend to their travellers. Thank you for the wonderful time.

Room Tip: I would recommend lady travellers to take the upper bunk bed for more privacy. However, if you do no...

I really enjoyed my stay at Wink Hostel. Very clean and cozy. Even though there were a lot of people, there was never too much noise (not even in the rooms). It's very modern and safe. Service is amazing! Everyone who doesen't want to waste money on over-priced hotels in Singapore has a superb alternative here.
