    everything is good. friendly staff and it is located nearby chinatown mrt. however, i notice there are quite a lot of some white bugs in the bathroom. not sure what it is, but it's quite scary. the pod itself is good! bed is comfortable and the storage locker is so big.

    Okay for a night. ”

    Felt slightly mislead by the main photo as it is now outdated and the lounge does not look like it does in the photo. I was expecting more of an atmosphere. This is an okay hostel for a night. Do not use as it does not have a social atmosphere and the hostel does nothing to make one. It’s a mix of families, groups, whoever. Staff are nice but obviously students who needed a job. It’s clean, it’s comfortable and in a good location in China town. A good 30 minute walk will get you to the Gardens. Personally I wouldn’t stay again.

    Reviewed May 29, 2019

    Dear Ger, Thank you for your review. Please take note that it is not that it's outdated, it is because we are just done with the renovation, and some of the furniture and fittings is still not yet put up, thus it looks a bit different. For social atmosphere, it depends on each individual guest. We do have common area/lounge for people to gather, perhaps during the 1 night that you are here, most of the guest already hang out together/families/group. Warm regards, Wink

    So the pods are adequate for a budget traveller. Maybe a small amount of disturbance with others coming and going. Take ears plugs to help. Apart from that it's a good value for money place to stay if you're on a budget. The MRT network is very cheap.

    They allow late self-check-in, which was very well organized and easy. Staff was friendly and helpful, and responsive to emails prior to booking. Pods were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was standard. They were just undertaking some renovations while I was there (including the bathrooms), but they were doing their best to keep everyone accommodated and everything clean. Location is good; lots of food and bar options in easy walking distance.

    Pros : great location; provide simple breakfast Cons : there were only head showers in bathroom with low water pressure, no hand shower. No shelf or rack in bathroom to put our toilette, all things have to put on the floor. I think there are bed bugs on bed, me and my friends feel itchiness on whole body while sleep on the bed.

We have reviewed the bed and could confirm the bed is new and should not have bed bugs. It may be due to your stay in other places. Warm regards, Wink

    Pros : very close to MRT Chinatown, Chinatown Point, and other excitement you can imagine in Chinatown, the staff very kind and give me replacement towel when needed. They provided bread,milk and Fruits every morning (qpples and oranges) Cleanliness do well, the clean lady quite responsive to clean the bathroom in the morning Cons: the shower room on the corner full of little fly quite annoying, there are 2 man toilet but only 1 provided with hand flush (bidet) and the drainage of water poorly bad design streaming out from the toilet so the outside become so wet and slippery The common room temperature quite hot, must ask the staff to turn on the ac with timer They Should have towel hanger in the room, because when hang inside the bed, quite damp In general I really enjoy staying in this hostel

    Rented the private room for 4 pax. The hostel was very near the Chinatown MRT station and easy to find. Lots of restaurants in the area, even late at night. Clean room, although not so much space to open luggages at the same time. The beds were just the right size for asians. Outside the room was the common dining area, and we could hear a bit of the noise during breakfast time (although I must say that I’m a very light sleeper so I tend to wake up even with the slightest noise). Staff were friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was okay (some toast and hot drinks). Bathrooms are okay—staff tries to clean it as much as possible.

    Clean, budget, great location”

    The location of this hostel is great- just around the corner from the MRT station which makes it a perfect base for exploring Singapore. The hostel itself was clean, I had a top bunk pod by the door- which I was a bit concerned about but was totally fine with the curtains allowing privacy and the individual lights and plugs inside the pod were great. The bed was comfortable and I would say my room was completely quiet between midnight and 7am. It wasn't really a sociable place, but everyone was friendly enough! The staff were nice and you can leave your bags. You have to leave a cash deposit when you arrive. The main downside was how far away the bathrooms were from the room- and you have to walk through the communal breakfast area to get to the showers. The showers were very clean, no problems there, although the room does get extremely hot! Overall, this is a great option for a budget stay in an amazing location!

    Great Location and Friendly Staff”

    The location is great!! you can easily reach the place on a walking distance from Exit A on Chinatown MRT. Also, the SG attractions is just an MRT ride away. If you are looking for souvenirs and local food, this area is perfect. The rooms are great, the beds are comfortable. Bathrooms necessities are well provided. A free breakfast is also served. Staffs are also friendly and very accommodating on inquiries. They also maintain the place clean as possible. Just be note that the structure of the rooms bed, the aircon cannot easily go thru the bunks, so tendency it gets hot at night. Its also a very safe place to stay, along the road but you will not really hear the noise. Overall the facilities are great and my stay here for a week is remarkable. Oh, they also provide shuttle service to airport for $9, not bad at all especially if you carry a lot and heavy luggage, its very convenient. They also have discounted tickets on SG popular attractions and activities, so better check it out.

    Cheap and strategic location but...”

    I only needed one night of sleep after a party in Singapore this place was within my budget and location. However, you pay what you get for. As expected hostel-style. You get roommates which shuffles up and down at odd hours, and the shared bathrooms are not maintained at night and can get very disgusting with uncivilized users. Definitely not for the fussy traveller.

    Nice Place to Stay!”

    It was my first time to stay in a mixed hostel during my entire trip. I am not used to staying in one room with strangers. However, my stay in Wink Hostel has made my trip comfortable. Lucky, my roommates are all considerate enough not to make noise. Lol! Wink hostel is in a strategic location. It is very near Chinatown MRT station. 2 blocks away from Chinatown. There is a 7-11 store nearby & mall. The staffs are very helpful. The guy in the front desk (i forgot his name) was very helpful! He even helped me with my luggage. My stay here was very smooth. Plus, this is listed in the airport shuttle, so when I arrived SG at midnight, the airport shuttle has dropped me in front of Wink Hostel.
