“Best in Chinatown!”
Reviewed 2 November 2016

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 well cleaned. The place also has a living room and spaces to sit and chat. Breakfast provided were some toast and cereal, self-service. The staffs were extremely friendly and helpful! Overall, a chic, clean place with great hospitality! 10/10 would recommend!

Room Tip: Bathroom is on the second floor.

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; it's a good option!

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.

Wink Hostel was great.

I found all the facilities really clean - it felt decent. The doona cover and bed were crisp white and the bed was really comfy ( Possible a futon mattress.)
The key card security was good and I was walking distance to the MRT. Aside from being in Chinatown, it is actually possible to walk tot he Esplanade along the river front and even walk to Little India. I did it and it was pleasant. Staff friendly and helpful.

I stayed only a few nights in Singapore but the wink hostel is a beautiful place with clean rooms and great staff!
I loved staying in a pod as it offers enough room to be comfortable and still gives you more privacy than other hostelrooms with bunk beds do. Great place, awesome location - always worth the trip :)
