I really like this place!! They have mixed dorm, male dorm and female dorm. Also there are separate shower room and toilet for male and female. There are 6-8 beds per dorm. I got a bed in a 8-dorm. I found the bed was so comfy, there is a personal reading light in each pod, there is a little space...

Singapore is expensive. We should not have gone for 3 nights and neither should you if you can't afford the Wink, because the cheaper places to stay are dirty! Wink was really clean. We wanted a private room (me and my boyfriend) but they only offered dorm beds. We were lucky and happened to get an empty room. It was...

It's my 2nd stay here. This hostel is using a 'pod style' of bed which feels more private than the regular bunk bed used in most of hostel. As I am not a backpacker type of traveler, that kind of thing is very important for me. The bathrooms are always available for us to use, means that they have enough...

Hi Vesta5675, Ouch... it's embarrassing to have your issues aired publicly. No excuses - sorry - the air-conditioning in our Flame of the Forest Room did leak over last weekend. We cleaned the filter immediately, and had our contracted AC vendor come immediately the next working day for a thorough check. This is disturbing as we already have very regular...

We stayed in a pod room. Cost us $50 Singapore dollars a night so not the most backpacker budget friendly but it is Singapore. The place was immaculate. Very clean rooms and bathrooms.

Pods are great, air con was even better. Located real close to Chinatown MRT station. Wi-fi was fine in my room, but I was adjacent to the reception. Price the only downside but all of Singapore accom was pricey so they more or less hit the mark given what they offer.

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.
