Wink Capsule Hostel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 5, 2013

Wink is great. My first time in a hostel, so wasn't sure what to expect. But Wink is clean, well organised and generous with its service. Our flight wasn't leaving until late at night on the day we checked out, but they let us leave baggage and come back and shower before taking our flight. The rooms are shared, but the layout allows privacy. Incredibly clean, nice friendly atmosphere, and a fantastic location.

Well located in Chinatown and almost next to the Chinatown MRT station (NE4) this hostel has a great value. In overall the hostel is clean, modern and feels secure.

The beds are inside pods, which makes them quiter place to sleep. Guests are given keycards that can be used to open doors as well as one's personal locker. The keycard seemed to have some small hiccups couple of times but apart from that it worked well.

The common facilities were clean and in good condition. Air conditioning in dorm worked perfectly.

There's hostels, then there's hostels... If you're used to a smelly, run down, dirty, basic hostel stay, you've come to the wrong place! After checking numerous accommodation options in Singapore, I opted for Wink simply for the price. To my surprise, it surpassed my expectations. Tidy rooms, regularly cleaned bathroom with great shower, simple but adequate breakfast, good security, great wifi and comfortable pod bed. Location is smack bang in the middle of Chinatown and an easy train ride to all Singapore has to offer. One word of warning, my second night I was joined by a family with 3 kids. Not quite what you expect in a hostel, but luckily they were well behaved. All up a very enjoyable stay and excellent value for money.

Well fitted out hostel with helpful staff walking distance to the business district and right in the middle of Chinatown. The staff were very helpful - one even lent me her own umbrella when I asked if the hostel had one I could borrow. Decent breakfast, good wifi (no problem skyping) and clean bathrooms.

Room Tip: I can recommend the reflexology place downstairs. One hour treatment for about 40 bucks.

I arrived at the Wink hostel at 6:30am having not slept all night. I wasn't due to check in until 3pm, but this wasn't a problem, as i was allowed to crash in the common area for a couple of hours, and I awoke to find CB, the owner, sitting next to me saying they had already arranged a bed for me!

All the staff are very helpful and friendly, and all areas are cleaned regularly.

The pods are a novel concept and much better than bunk beds. The aircon keeps the bedrooms nice and cool at night.

There is also wifi throughout and laptops for guests to use.

It is slightly more expensive than other hostels but well worth the extra money if you can afford it!

The location is great!! close to everything, the place is very clean it is perfect for spending a couple of days wondering in Singapore The only thing i did not like was the sound of the door that made other wake up and the light of other beds can wake you up also..

with no doubt i will recommend Wink if anyone is asking for hostels to stay in Singapore, i already did for couple of friends actually :)
it's clean, quiet, the location is superb, and they got friendly and helpful staffs (thanks Selina for answering lots of my questions), i could say it gives more than what you expected from a S$50/night accommodation.
