Liked: The location of the hostel is excellent. It's close to Chinatown MRT and there is a supermarket, shops and lots of eateries close by. I really liked the pod system as they made it feel like you had your own private space within the dorm. The keycards which locked your locker and also activated the light were great - no more waking up in the night when someone turned the lights on. I never had to queue for the showers and it was nice to have a breakfast option provided.

Disliked: It would have been good to have somewhere to hang towels within the dorm rather than just the small hook by your bed. And on some days the showers could maybe be checked/cleaned more regularly as the plug hole did quickly get clogged with hair (although I grant that guests should take some responsibility for this).

Liked: The staff was very nice. The breakfast was ok, the room was ok, and the bed and pillows were fine, bathrooms were clean enough. The location was great!!

Disliked: The problem here is that there is no air-con everywhere, only in the rooms, which indeed is the most important part. But if you want to go to the bathroom or be in the common rooms, it will be a bit unpleasant to stand the temperature in Singapore. Check if there are other hostels that have air-con everywhere you will thank me for this advice.

Liked: Wink was very clean and convenient, close to the MRT and food courts. I met a bunch of really nice and friend people there. the staff is very friendly and helpful.

Disliked: It is a bit on the expensive side for a hostel, but you get what you pay for. it is clean and has a lot of facilities, such as complimentary breakfast, 24 hour 24 tea coffee, common room. The water in the showers was often cold no matter what time of day/ night. but maybe there was a problem the first day cause it seemed to be fine the second day.

Liked: the location very near to MRT, just 2 minutes walk. Many food and souvenirs shop on hotel area (china town). staff quite helpfull and friendly. room , bed sheet ,bathroom very clean.

Disliked: the most expensive hostel bunkers in singapore, okay for 1 person, (but if you travel 2 or 3 person you can get same prices on hotel room) we need use stairs to go to this hostel on 2nd floor. breakfast need more variation (only bread, jam, milk and cereal)

Liked: Staff were super helpful and friendly with a good sense of humour. The hostel is easy to find coming from the MTR station. The cell bed provides better privacy than normal bunk bed found in standard hostels. Highly recommend it!

Disliked: The toilet flush seems to be a little weak, you need to press and hold the button until it flushes completely.
