Best Hostel I've Stayed In”
There's hostels, then there's hostels... If you're used to a smelly, run down, dirty, basic hostel stay, you've come to the wrong place! After checking numerous accommodation options in Singapore, I opted for Wink simply for the price. To my surprise, it surpassed my expectations. Tidy rooms, clean bathroom with great shower, simple but adequate breakfast, good security, great wifi and comfortable pod bed. Location is smack bang in the middle of Chinatown and an easy train ride to all Singapore has to offer. One word of warning, my second night I was joined by a family with 3 kids. Not quite what you expect in a hostel, but luckily they were well behaved. All up a very enjoyable stay and excellent value for money.
Perfect location near MRT, plus friendly staffs an”
I and my colleague have stayed here for 5 nights. It's my first time to stay at hostel at Singapore and I am glad that I made the perfect choice! The pod type of dorm was awesome. It gave us quite privacy comapred to other hostels. The building was not new, but the overall environment was clean and quiet all the time during my staying. The bed was cozy and comfortable and I just loved it. Each person has his/her own locker and it's safely locked with own room card. Ladies dorm and double-bed room were just not as big as the mixed dorm I figured that out later on. The free wifi wireless internet connection was strong at ladies room, but not as great at the double-bed room. Thus, I used the public notebook area which was fine to me. Double-bed room had air-con noise from the neighbors, just for your informatoin. The best part of Wink Hostel I'd suggest is the kitchen. You could meet new friends here easily, or cook your own food to save the budget. The breakfast includes toasts, apple/orange juices, milk, tea, coffee, yummy ~ ~ Overall experience? I love staying at this hostel and will recommand to any backpackers who would like to visit Singapore. It worths the costs and I will definitely stay at Wink Hostel for the next trip :)
comfortable, hassle-free and value-for-money”
Overall it was such a nice and relaxing stay at Wink Hostel though it was only my first stay there. You would definitely fall in love with its convenience because it's just minutes away from the MRT, and there are always things to do and discover around Chinatown, which is already a cool tourist spot itself. And also lots of great dinning opportunities around the corner all day n night so you could always taste different cuisines in Chinatown. The hostel itself is great as well with friendly staff, nice breakfast until like 10am which is very good enough for me. One little bad experience abt my stay is that I actually got quite inconsiderate roomates sharing the same room with me and they kinda made my stay less enjoyable. But totally understand that cant blame this on the hostel so will definitely recommend Wink Hostel to solo female travelers like me :D
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.
Dear Kristina, Thank you for taking your time to write this awesome review! We are glad you enjoyed your first time in a hostel. And definitely happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. Thank you once again for your high praise for our staffs! 😊 Warm regards, Wink
Home away from home”
Wink Hostel is very near the Chinatown MRT station, and is close to Chinatown's food streets and night market streets. I had a great stay here since it was also my first time traveling alone in Singapore. It was easy moving around and getting to the hostel for me, because I only had one hand carried bag and a foldable duffel bag. I enjoyed the privacy and security each room offered, since only guests staying in the same room have a key card. The key card also opens a personal locker, which was big enough to house all my shopping bags and luggage. The only downside I can think of is that the reception area and communal areas aren't air-conditioned so in the summer, it can get really hot. The humidity in Singapore is also higher than where I come from so it's definitely a good idea to wear light clothes.
I decided to stay in Wink after reading positive reviews in Agoda and they were true!! Its my first experience staying in a hostel and in fact I just realised I didn't have to spend so much money to stay in a hotel if a hostel, like Wink, could accomodate most of your needs! One more, I accidentally left my new H&M winter jacket and surprisingly they contacted me and wwere willing to ship it to Indonesia!! I recommended Wink to my relatives travelling to Singapore and for you guys, this hostel is so very very really recommended!! :D
Friendly staff, clean rooms, convenient location”
this is the third or fourth time that i've stayed at wink. this last stay was for two nights. i like the friendly staff. and the rooms and common bathroom have always been clean. a free all-you-can-eat breakfast (toast, cereals, coffee, fruit juice, fresh milk) is served from about 7 a.m. for a guy who just needs a bed from 1 a.m. - 6 a.m., this place is perfect. the nearest mrt station (chinatown) is well within walking distance. i have dragged a wheeled bag, about 30 kg, plus a medium-sized backpack (about 8 kg) from that train station to wink hostel and back to the station, without too much trouble. you won't need to take a cab, which can be quite expensive if you are traveling from the airport or train station at woodlands. on my second night, a water pipe in the adjacent public restroom burst, which caused the floor of the room in which i was staying to flood. it didn't bother me as the incident happened after i had gone to bed and i had one of the higher pods, but i think it could have caused some inconvenience for anyone who arrived later. i found out about the incident when i got up (to find the floor extremely wet) and told the staff, who already knew about it and said the problem would be fixed. my stuff located in the storage space at the bottom of the pods (at floor level) was unharmed and absolutely dry. this is not the cheapest option for the average backpacker, but you get what you pay for. this place is clean, bright, safe, and i believe will suit most people's needs.
Perfect for solo travelers ”
I really enjoyed my stay at Wink and will definitely stay there again when I go to Singapore. Overall, i loved it there at Wink. The staff are friendly and very helpful, bathrooms were clean. It's a totally new experience to me living in a capsule, but it's something i enjoyed. I enjoyed the privacy I had in my own space even if i shared the room with 9 other people. Will definitely recommend this hostel to my family and friends!
Clean, Cosy and good location!”
I had a pleasant stay at the Wink Hostel, they have a place to watch the telly, laptops for people to use (like a mini cybercafe), considerably green, very clean place. Arrived there using the shuttle booked from Ground Transport Desk at the airport, apparently Wink Hostel is well established so the staff quickly knew where i was headed. It's also at a very good location in Chinatown, only few mins walk to the MRT and quite a big shopping mall called Chinatown point. One of the staff (possibly the owner) was kind enough to show me around, which made me feel very welcome. The only downside for me are the small duvet and that check in time was at 3pm so i couldn't get the nap on my bed i wanted to after my travel, but still they allow you to store your luggage with them and use the facilities (shower, sofa, their mini cyber cafe) provided.
Great for Solo Travelers!”
I only stayed for one night but I was very satisfied! Wink is in the heart of Chinatown so there's lots to do, but is on a side street which keeps it quiet. It's about a three minute walk from the MRT and there's tons of food nearby. I'm a solo female traveler, so safety is a big concern and I felt really great at Wink. The dorm rooms have key card locks and the lockers which use the key cards as well is one of the best hostel features I've ever seen! The beds were quite comfortable and spacious and the reading lights were great! The free breakfast was fruit, toast, and cereal. I would stay again for sure!
Great location with full amneties ”
After trying out few hostels in Singapore, Wink Hostel is one of the best hostels to stay in. It is conveniently located in Chinatown and less than 5mins walk from the MRT station as well as shopping and commercial areas. The beds are adequate in size and plentiful amount of bathrooms and restrooms. Good free wifi access as well. Its just a stones throw away from Singapore's nightlife at Clark Quey, approx 10mins walk. Will definitely return here for my future trips to Singapore!
Wonderful Design, Superb Location”
Excellent stay - enjoyed all six days at Wink Hostel. Could easily get anywhere I needed to go, thanks to close proximity of Chinatown MRT station on the NE Line and Outram station on the EW Line as well as bus stops. Dorm was remarkably roomy. Loved that the room card key would automatically light up my pod/sleeping compartment each time I entered the room, and the convenience of the electronic lock on the spacious underbed locker. Whole place is aesthetically very pleasing. Have showed Wink off to many friends and relatives, who will be recommending Wink to their upcoming visitors.
⭐️⭐️⭐️ Location: Just a few steps away from Chinatown MRT and Maxwell Food Centre. ⭐️⭐️ Cleanliness: The hostel is well maintained and quite clean even though when I was about to go to my bed there was a hanging plastic left in the hook inside the capsule. But I didn’t mind at all since they were able to accomodate our early check in and maybe the lady cleaning is also in a rush to fix our beds so we could rest. The lady cleaner is nice too. Toilet sometimes does not flush properly and you might need to press a couple of times, some of the faucets does not work too but for me these are not a bother at all. ⭐️⭐️ ⭐️ Experience: They provide key card for the room and lockers. I was staying at the upper bed and its quite difficult to climb up since some of the beds has no handle. Breakfast was our favorite, simple yet filling, we loved the oranges by the way 🙂. The lady who assisted us was nice and so accomodating, I forgot to ask her name but she has a nice tattoo on her leg 😊 and the guy receptionist is cute ☺️ Overall, our stay was great and we found home at Singapore 💟
Dear Emmie, Thank you for your outstanding review and high praise for our staffs. We are really glad that you enjoyed your stay with us, and that you are very happy with us! Likewise, we had a really great time having you around with the laughter and smile. You are always back home here anytime you want to :) Warm regards, Wink
A new experience of sleeping in a pod”
It was a great experience to stay in dormitory and get to know with other guest. The bathroom is quite clean and comfy. The locker under the bed is having an enough space for my 25" luggage. The staff is very friendly and even took a photos of my friend and I before we leave to the airport. The location is very close to Chinatown MRT and there are a lot of Chinese food restaurant there. Definetely a new experience for me and I will recommend Wink hostel to everyone :)
great hostel i've ever stay”
this is the best hostel i have ever stay when i am in singapore. i have try several hostel at the several location too, when i am visit singapore, and i would give 5 star rate for this hostel. perfect location at chinatown. near from the mrt and some food stall. great capsule room, cleanliness is the best from all hostel that ive ever stay. and the biggest point why i very recommended this hostel are service. great service from front desk staff. they really help us, always welcome with every question.
probably the nicest hostel in sg”
had a really nice time staying at wink hostel, considering its my first time in a hostel. its the most expensive hostel in sg i think, so its worth the price especially if youre travelling alone and youre a girl, they have their ladies dorm (well just like any other hostel actually). breakfast is complete --you can eat everything during brekkie - cereals, fruits, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, milk, juices, bread, toast the hostel is on the second floor, so i suggest you do not bring a big/heavy luggage since you need to drag it all up the 2nd floor.. only thing i didnt like about the hostel is that the ac is not that cold, although i was too tired to adjust the settings in the room i was in, so really am not sure if one can really change the temperature.
for the budget traveler with an eye for comfort ! ”
i required to stay in singapore for a few nights and i did not wish to spend a excessive amount for lodging. being a bit adventures i opted to stay at wink hostel as i read good reviews about the place on the internet. the place is everything it advertises to be. the pods are very comfortable and i was hardly bothered by the others staying in my dorm. the best part of my stay there was running into a lot of interesting people most of whom were around the same age as i am. you really can’t get a better deal for the price.
excellent cheap clean alternative to a hotel”
As far as hostels go, Wink is hard to beat. Great location in Chinatown, minutes walking to three different hawker stands with great cheap food. The metro is very close, or you can walk to anywhere from the hostel. The rooms and lockers are very secure, kitchen well organized, bathroom and showers are very clean. Plus the staff is very helpful. I'm so glad I saved $+ for the two nights I was in Singapore.
This was the first time I booked and stayed in this hotel. A good place to spend the night, leave things safely, have a good shower.. the basics. I asked for a lower bunk bed. Elliot IMMEDIATELY sent an email confirming my request! That's a plus on customer service. It wasn't hard to find as it was very near the MRT station. It actually exceed my expectation of a hostel. There were lots of restaurants below to choose from. Convenience store almost anywhere. Grocery store was a few minutes walk as well as the Chinatown Heritage Center, a recommended "museum". Dining area and living area were shared. They have basic breakfast: cereals, bread, fruits, milk, instant coffee, milo and tea. You could also get to meet and talk with other tourists and travelers (if you want to) at any of the common areas. They even have a laundry area (washer, dryer, iron). The staff were accommodating and friendly. Minor issue: the curtain for my bunk bed had stains. Would definitely book Wink again.
Dear Wesley, Thank you very much for your awesome review. We were glad you enjoyed your stay with us and likewise, we are really happy to host you during your trip to Singapore. Do visit us anytime you want to as here will always be your home. p.s : the staff name is elton ;) haha See you again next time ! Warm regards, Wink
Great location, clean and comfortable bed”
The Wink Hostel is located in China Town, 4-5 minutes walk to Chinatown MRT and bus stations. The whole facility is clean, the room is clean, the bed is comfortable (two pillows and a duvet), and they provide a quite large locker under the bed to store your luggage. I was traveling solo and I felt totally safe staying in this hostel. They have a female-only dorm room to if you prefer to stay in such room. I would totally recommend it!
Dear Astrid, Thank you for your very great review! We are glad to have you with us during your stay in Singapore. We hope to have you with us again! Warm Regards, Wink
