Had a great 3 night stay here in March in route into SE Asia, very clean, comortable beds and good wifi, simple breakfast like most hostels. Staff very helpful and friendly, and great location in Chinatown. Price is a little high compared to the rest of Asia but I think that's more Singapore than the hostel itself...

This is the second time I've stayed at Wink Hostel and if I ever returned to Singapore, I'd happily stay there again. The hostel is located just a short walk away from the Chinatown metro station which makes it super easy to access all the major sights around Singapore. The bathrooms are cleaned regularly and overall, I found the hostel...

Wink hostel happened to be one of the best hostels I ever stayed. Although it is not the cheapest hostel available, it is worth the price. It is really clean, with good facilities (several showers and toilets), private bed (kind of a capsule bed where you have a curtain to get some privacy) with your own light and electricity plug,...

I have spent at least 4 stays at Wink over the past 5 years. Long stay and short stay. My fellow guests came from all over including China, Malaysia, South Korea and Bali. The canteen made it impossible not to get to know some very interesting travellers. I'm Irish so this was mind expanding. I spent 2 Christmases in Singapore...

Hi Michael, Thanks for taking time to write. Sorry you found a few things wanting in your experience. We chose to locate Wink in a conserved and historical Chinatown shophouse to let guests have a little more of the local flavors. Unfortunately, one trade-off is such conserved buildings are under strict regulations on where we can locate certain amenities like...

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
