I arrived at the Wink hostel at 6:30am having not slept all night. I wasn't due to check in until 3pm, but this wasn't a problem, as i was allowed to crash in the common area for a couple of hours, and I awoke to find CB, the owner, sitting next to me saying they had already arranged a bed for me!

All the staff are very helpful and friendly, and all areas are cleaned regularly.

The pods are a novel concept and much better than bunk beds. The aircon keeps the bedrooms nice and cool at night.

There is also wifi throughout and laptops for guests to use.

It is slightly more expensive than other hostels but well worth the extra money if you can afford it!

with no doubt i will recommend Wink if anyone is asking for hostels to stay in Singapore, i already did for couple of friends actually :)
it's clean, quiet, the location is superb, and they got friendly and helpful staffs (thanks Selina for answering lots of my questions), i could say it gives more than what you expected from a S$50/night accommodation.

In its concept of pod-arranged dorm rooms, the WInk hostel is nearing perfection. Very well organized and very friendly and helpfull staff on top. There's not much more I can say. In principle I'm not that comfortable staying in dorm rooms, but with the Singapore prices one may have to compromise. The way this concept has been implemented by Wink, made it a pleasant experience. Just bring ear-plugs, in case someone in the room would be snoring ;)

took a while to get me to write a review for wink a little bit busy this end year, what can i say about, i read some good reviews from different reservations online, first i planned my getaway 2 months before and took me a while in finding a good spot to sleep in, i tried several hotels every day and at the same time looking for sudden promos from hotels, as november approaches i need to choose before i ran out of luck, tried emailing 5 hotels, all of them replied but what catches me, the place of the convention that i will attend, is it near or is it accessible by public transportation. i also checked websites as well, then limit my choices to 2, then i compare both the other os a typical dorm room, and the other is more like a space shuttle, i know its not what i expected at first but i got Wink as my hotel for 4 days 3 nights,


at first i got lost with in china town hahaha its my first time traveling @ china town , we have a place around east but my uncle has his relatives staying so i give way thats why i end renting space, although i got surprise about the structure of the place.


staff was nice, place is good and the cereal is good hahaha i almost ate the whole box of cereals
room was nice

one thing thou, no mens room on the third floor all ladies hahahaha

over all stay was great.

thanks Wink.

Arguably the best hostel in Singapore for backpackers.

Cons.
1. The complimentary breakfast duration feels too short. For the amazing night life in Singapore, it'd be impossible to wake up in time for it.
2. The cheap massage joints around, better to stay away from them.
3. Weak wireless internet connection in some of the corner pods.
4. No water jets in the bathrooms.

Pros.
1. Super comfy beds and sparkling clean corner rooms.
2. The location. China town is lovely to walk around, if a little adventurous you might even take 15 min walk to Clark Quay, 2 min walk to the China Town MRT, McDonalds almost next door.
3. The staff. Friendly yet extremely professional, its not easy.

There just might not be an end to the Pros, but i would highly recommend this hostel, its the best what that money can buy.

Thanks Wink Hostel, everything was brilliant, from booking online to the spacious pods and not forgetting the super friendly staff, there's really nothing to fault. Toilets were cleaned quite frequently so that was a big bonus. :)
