“Looking for a hostel ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2017 via mobile

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 ones that stayed on the top bunk had the same problem. Also not made for tall people. So if you plan on staying here make sure you get a bottom bunk. For cleanliness I give them a 5! Such a cute hostel! Location I give it a 5! Walking distance to everything.

Stayed January 2017, travelled with friends

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 min walk.

Pros : great location / clean / nice & informative & helpful staffs

Cons : a bit expensive / wifi can be a bit unstable in some spots

book the whole room of 8 beds as I travel with large group. The beds are clean, the hot shower pressure is also nice especially after a long walk during the day. The location of this hostel is great. Near to MRT station and lots of foods joint.

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 to Chinatown MRT station.

Very pleasant stay.

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!
