I stayed here for 4 nights after looking around and could have easily stayed longer! yes in terms of price, it is a little bit dear but I honestly think it's worth it The dorm itself- pod style beds, stayed in nothing like it before and loved it! Individual lights and socket, plus massive locker underneath! The showers are great,...

Hi, Wink might be one of the best places to stay in Singapore. It is very clean, extremely cosy, and the unique "pod" system with lockers at the bottom and keycard access to the rooms was pretty comfy, and overall safe too. Wi-fi was really fast. It's like 3-5min walk from Chinatown MRT, nearby to some nice food streets/courts if...

Hi, Many thanks for your endorsements! Really glad you mentioned our 24 hour service. This is something we struggle to sustain given the manpower constraints in Singapore, the general aversion of youngsters to take on night shifts, and widespread practice amongst hostels to do otherwise! We view this as part of our service (always there for guests) and the overall...

A great place to stay in terms of location - very close to the MRT and in the middle of Chinatown close to supermarkets, shops and restaurants. As a solo female traveller I definitely felt safe in the area. The keycard locking system for the rooms and lockers is good and I really liked how only the light above your...

Hi Kesamokki, Thanks for your stay at Wink and the kind words you left behind to share! You hit the nail on a few traits we seem to have picked up. Yes, we seem to be hosting a fair share of solo ladies travellers, perhaps for the safety/convenience features we emphasize a little more. Yes, we are not quite a...

This place is a really great option for people visiting Singapore on a budget. I stayed for five days and enjoyed the experience. The hostel is conveniently located within 5 minutes from the Chinatown MRT station. It's also a few steps away from the heart of Chinatown which is a cultural experience in itself. The staff was accommodating from check-in...

I recommend this place if you want a cheap yet a clean and sophisticated backpackers' inn to stay at. It's located near Chinatown MRT station (you need to exit at Chinatown Complex, which is Exit A). Chinatown itself is a must-see for travellers so you got a pretty good and culturally-rich area to stay at. The Chinatown Food Street is...

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.
