I'm travelling for a couple months and although I normally use private rooms I decided to give Wink a try as the cost was so reasonable compared to hotels here and I was only staying for 3 nights. Easy enough to find, close to Chinatown MRT. In fact, it was a great location for exploring. Clarke Quay, Raffles, Marina Bay...

First off I gave this place a 3 because of the sleep we got. We got a double occupancy pod. Which was super cute and clean. Only problem... we had the top bunk and at night it gets super hot!! So the whole night was very uncomfortable. We talked to our friends that stayed in the single pods and the...

I stayed at Wink hostel for one night before leaving Singapore. Although the price is quite expensive for the hostel, I really enjoy the stay as the cleanliness, decent facilities, friendly atmosphere and staffs and the location. It is located in the heart of the city, in the Chinatown and very close to the MRT Chinatown station just only 3-5...

We stayed in Wink Hostel in October 2016 for over the weekend stay. We took the couple pods. The room, bed was very clean. The room was very cold with 2 air cons. The shared washrooms were ok. The complementary breakfast was good, I hope they can add some better coffee. It's in the heart of Chinatown and very close...

Hostel is very clean, comfortable and you get lots of privacy for a budget price. Highly recommended. The staff is very friendly and the service is great! Personally I don't mind some noises when people come and go but if you're really sensitive to noises (pods reduce pretty much noise) I suggest bring some earplugs. Overall, great place to stay!

Nine in our group had a 10 bed dorm. Really pleased to see how clean the place was - especially the bathrooms. Great location - easy for public transport but also convenient to walk. Didnt have time to explore all the food options nearby but it looked like there was a great range to suit all tastes and budgets. Would...

Great location! It's conveniently by the MRT and a Bee Cheng Hiang shop at the corner. There are a bunch of stores in walking distance, even in the night. Check in is open 24 hours and that was really helpful when our flight got delayed. Our room was super clean and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was new and...

It's a high-end hostel with good service and flashy decoration. It could be more clean for sure, there was stains in the sheet and the doors are super dirty... the showers could be more clean too given the price paid per night... I guess it's Singapour so it has to be expensive but if you can't afford the Marina Bay;...

Centrally located, this is a clean, safe, friendly p!ace to stay. Reception is manned 24/7 unlike many other hostels, with the staff being super friendly and helpful. The pods are spacious as is the luggage locker under the bed. Fully equipped kitchen and laundry facilities are a bonus. I have a new favourite place to stay in Singapore.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful 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.
