“One of my fav hostel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 February 2012

Cozy bed. i felt being secure laying in the pod. it was very comfortable but i was on upper one. I had really hard time climb up to my pod as i'm quite short (5'4"). I would try lower pod next time.

Yes - our sizeable lockers right below our pod-beds do mean the first rungs of our customised ladders are a little higher. We appreciate you pointing out this tip for guests. Thanks for staying with us and for your great comments. Look forward to reserving a lower pod for you - come back soon!

The Wink is a great option, is very well located, the place looks clean, the bed and pillows were very comfortable, with a fresh scent, nice lighting, the hostel offered a lot of extras, storage space underneath the bed, free wi fi and laptops, a kitchen where you can cook, heat up, grab something to eat, there is a washer, and an area to dry clothes, other facilities to have coffee and relax, the restrooms were good, may be early in the morning it needs a little work on cleaning hair from floor.
I would advise travelers to get the upper bed, because if you get a heavy guy on the upper bed, there might be a small sound when the person moves.
Everything looks modern, new and clean. The customers look like young and middle age travelers with a similar profile.
I highly recommend to stay here!!

I stayed for 3 nights in a female dorm and highly recommend this place to travelers who prefer to stay in a hotel but can't afford the expense. I had a really fantastic experience and this place seems to draw a nice crowd of fellow travelers, so it is great for meeting people. There were only 7 beds in the room so not overcrowded like most places with people coming & going at all hrs! The location is fantastic, a short stroll to Clarke quay and only a 2 minute walk to the MRT station. There are also plenty of great hawker centre's nearby to get a cheap feed.

The pods give you a sense of privacy and you will get a comfortable nights sleep on crisp white linen sheets. The place is nicely air-conditioned and ultra modern and maintained to a high standard - they even make your bed for you!

There are plenty of showers and toilets so you never have to wait and they were always clean. The breakfast is included as is free tea and coffee, they have kitchen facilities with a fridge, toaster, kettle so you could even prepare and cook your own foods. There is an internet station with laptops free to use and there is also wireless. If you feel like a night in you can also watch DVD's on the big flat screen TV or play Nintendo.

The best thing about staying here is the staff that were always so nice and helpful. They are able to give you a wad of information on places to visit and how to get there and there are travel brochures, maps etc. They can even arrange airport shuttle for you.
If I return to Singapore I will be staying here again!

I liked their pod design and when u sleep in, its very comfortable. They had some open space for work and take a break. The location is very close too chinatown and MRT station. The effort that you need to do are to go to their bathroom located at next level of the dorms and dont forget to bring your own toiletries.

Room Tip: They have a ladies dorm for ladies, quite comfy. and I like the pod at 2nd level. Its more private.

I stayed at Wink Hostel for 3 nights. It's so nice. There are 6 beds in my room. Even thought there are 6 beds, I still feel privacy ^^
