This was my first ever stay in a hostel and I really enjoyed the experience. The location of Wink Hostel is fantastic as its less than a minute walk to the MRT station for China Town. Its also incredibly close to the China Town market and Smith Street (the famous food street in Singapore). We stayed in a double bed room with 3 other couples and the rooms were very well air conditioned. My only comment would be that the hallways in the Hostel were very, very warm especially after a long day of travelling around Singapore in the heat. A special thank you to Afi and Umai who were working on the reception desk. They made our stay even more enjoyable. With decent (free) locked storage, large showering cubicles, reliable WiFi and polite staff I would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone.
