Overall, really lovely hostel with a lot of space for privacy. I found the upper bunk bed somewhat difficult to climb into. I couldn't access the wifi in the room, but it seemed like others could. While the rooms are well air conditioned, all of the common areas are not air conditioned. The bathrooms and showers were the best I've... More

Wink is very nice and clean. Basic breakfast provided. Not the most social place but nice if you want a bit more privacy. Note that the internet connectivity is poor in some rooms but great in the lounge.

I had stayed in many hostels and Wink Hostel is one of my favourite! I love the pod concept which offers privacy. Staffs are friendly. Room is clean and comfortable. The bathroom is big enough for the occupants. Breakfast is only average (just cereal, fruits, bread, the usual) so I will suggest go out and sample Singapore's foods. Location is... More

This is a top choice hostel in Singapore. The rooms are first rate pod style bunks in reasonably secure rooms. The rooms are well air conditioned, but the common areas are not and can get very hot so are not all that much fun to hang out in. The kitchen is very well equipped and there is a relatively good...

The hostel has very professional staffs. The bathroom is clean. The breakfast is adequate. The pods provide you more privacy than the normal bed-style dorm; the walls help you don't see each other. However, it doesn't safe you from noises at all. With this kind of dorm I feel that the people may tend to lack of awareness and make... More

Having never stayed in a shared hostel room before, I was apprehensive about staying in a double pod with my partner. Out of the 4 nights, only had 1 bad nights sleep and that was due to another couple coming in very late and constantly opening and closing the dorm door for a good hour. The air-con worked amazing, breakfast... More

The hostel's location is convenient and near the MRT station. A lot of restaurants around the area and it's tourist attraction point. The staff service is good even I was late to check-in but she knew me through checked the system. Good to stay.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
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.
