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!
