Stayed for 4 nights in the double pod. Overall stay was good. The place was clean. Perhaps in the ladies bathroom, the management could provide a bench or rack to put the toiletries bag. Location was excellent with the train station a walk away and there were many choices for eating out. Would definitely recommend this to our friends.

This is the first time I've stayed in a hostel, and I must say I had a nice experience. The place is overall like a tiny shared apartment with shared kitchen, bathroom, and bed - everything designed simple and clean. The place is always full, and you can meet new friends from all around the world - especially during breakfast (which is free!). I also love the location. It is very close to MRT and bus stop, so you can get around easily. Chinatown itself is a very vibrant place until late into the night. Best for solo traveler with an open mind.

Wink Hostel is located in the heart of Chinatown, very close to Chinatown MRT station, food street, and many of the local attractions such as the Chinatown Heritage Centre, Buddha Tooth Relic Temple, etc.

The dorm rooms themselves are quite well laid out, with a comfortable pod per person. Each pod has a comfortable mattress, light, power socket, and there is wifi throughout the hostel. Access to the room is by keycard, and there is lockable luggage space under the pod which is also accessed by keycard, so it's quite a secure place to sleep and leave your belongings. Air conditioning is provided 24 hours, which made the room a little bit colder than I would have liked.

The hostel is very clean, and provides some free toiletries for use by guests, which is a nice touch. Staff are friendly and happy to provide assistance in finding local attractions or purchasing discounted tickets.

I would stay here again as a solo traveller. A good place from which to explore Singapore.

Good location!! Just about three minutes away from the Chinatown station exit A !!also Just ten minutes walk to Clarke quay !! And the most important thing is the hostel really near to maxwell good centre where offer wide range of food -- chicken rice, soya, laksa etc !! I went maxwell everyday for different kind of food !!

If you don't mind to live in a dorm, then wink hostel is really recommended to you.

But one thing that can be improved is the ventilation system of the bathroom !! It's a bit stuffy!

Checked out if the Pod hostel and into Wink hostel.
Like the bed area, room either side of mattress, to put things, curtain or blind would be nice. We stayed in the bohdi room, only 4 double pods was nice. Showers did not have anywhere to put your clothes, except on back of door, got wet sometimes.

I follow a part-time program in Singapore which requires me to come every month. Wink Hostel has always been my choice of accommodation, not only because it is close to my school, but also because the staff was always so friendly, welcoming and helpful. Here you find all the things you need: fridge, cooker, washer, dryer & iron board etc. I think the hostel really made an effort in making your stay as comfortable as possible. The pods give you privacy at night, while there are many good restaurants nearby. Another plus point is that it is quite close to Marina Bay, which is my favourite spot - I always have a good run either in the morning or at night. :)
