“Cosy stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2016

Stayed at this place and was really impressed. Basic necessities were all provided and it was very reasonably priced to stay the night here.

Stayed in the mixed dorm. Lockers were key card controlled which was good and there's plenty of luggage space beneath the beds to store your items.

Breakfast was also provided. Showers were separated by gender and there's plenty stalls so not much of a waiting time.

Inside the bed cubicle were charging points, a comfy bed and basic lighting. If I was ever travelling on my own again, this would be the accommodation of choice.

Room Tip: I preferred the lower deck of the beds - easier to get in and out.

Overall, really lovely hostel with a lot of space for privacy.

I found the upper bunk bed somewhat difficult to climb into. I couldn't access the wifi in the room, but it seemed like others could. While the rooms are well air conditioned, all of the common areas are not air conditioned.

The bathrooms and showers were the best I've ever been in for a hostel. By far.

Staff was very, very helpful and nice.

Wink is very nice and clean. Basic breakfast provided. Not the most social place but nice if you want a bit more privacy. Note that the internet connectivity is poor in some rooms but great in the lounge.

Room Tip: Double beds great for couples

I had stayed in many hostels and Wink Hostel is one of my favourite! I love the pod concept which offers privacy. Staffs are friendly. Room is clean and comfortable. The bathroom is big enough for the occupants. Breakfast is only average (just cereal, fruits, bread, the usual) so I will suggest go out and sample Singapore's foods. Location is good, really really near to Chinatown MRT. Will definitely be back.
