We spent some time looking at different places to stay in Singapore and after much deliberation decided to go with Wink on the strength of some good reviews and the offer of a double bed in a dorm...we certainly made the right choice. For any travelling couple the double pods are perfect. We were in a top bunk pod and...

I like the fact that you can help yourself to tea and coffee and all day breakfast (however, i feel people may take advantage of this, so...

We didn't stay there, but when we were touring Chinatown on a recent trip to Singapore, saw it and was really impressed. We went over to check it out and ended up meeting the friendly and passionate owner while he was working to open it. The hostel is very new and appears to be very clean and nicely designed with...

Wink Hostel is a wonderful hostel which has recently just opened. Friendly and helpful staff, great facilities (showers are amazing!) and fantastic location - 2 minutes from Chinatown MRT. We booked a double pod for 4 nights, the beds were really comfy and big. Free wifi and computers were available all over the building - thanks for a wonderful stay!

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.
