High style and high tech converge at Wink - the boutique flashpackers hostel. We are a one-of-a-kind new accommodation concept geared for the young (at heart), trendy and technology savvy.

The owners of Wink are passionate and seasoned travellers (backpacking and business globe-setting) who took their time to conceptualize and build Wink from bottom-up. Their goals for Wink is to marshal together the comforts of a boutique hotel, the community of a backpackers' joint, and the modern conveniences of a modern meeting venue.

Wink is envisioned as a trusty host to help travellers enjoy Singapore. We will chat with you as pals, and point you to our personal must-see (must-eat!) places on the island.

Wink invests in technology to ensure you a seamless stay from check-in, across myriad transactions, to check-out. Throughout our premises, we balance both private and communal space to cater to our guests with different priorities.

Amongst the very first worldwide to tout pod style beds, Winks own designer twist to the concept indulges travellers their private sleeping sanctums, while allowing for socializing in individual rooms. Each custom-made pod is uniquely designed with unmatched features:

- Custom-designed and spacious
- Sound resistant walls in-between pods
- Dedicated ambient backlight which turns on automatically to guide you to your dedicated pods, without disturbing others
- Adjustable reading LED light for your glare-free reading pleasure
- Cushy back-rest
- Power socket to charge your gadgets and accessories
- Side-ledge and hook for your personal effects
- Superior 260 thread-count soft linen and sumptuous duvets
- Generous locker space right at the pod itself

Queen-sized pods are available for couples travelling together, or the traveller who yearns a bigger bed. Ladies dormitories, complete with vanity counters, provide female guests better peace of mind and a little luxury on the side.

Location
Housed in a three-storey historic shophouse with a Chinese Baroque faade, Wink exudes charm and local flavors. It resides right in Chinatown a must-see cultural enclave of Singapores largest ethnic group which is a convenient pivot to access the countrys attractions. Within minutes in the North lies Clarke Quay, a premium nightlife destination to unwind. A hop away in the South is Sentosa, an island resort getaway, and the distinctive skyline of Singapores Central Business District. Club Street and its bohemian vibes is an easy walk away to the East. Also in close proximity is the renowned Marina Bay Waterfront, which houses the Marina Bay Sands Integrated Resorts & Casino, and the Singapore Formula 1 Grand Prix night race circuit.

And it does not get more convenient than having Chinatowns Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station a mere 3-minutes stroll from Wink. From here, guests easily access all of Singapores popular sights (and less touristy ones too that only we recommend).

While most party-hard backpackers in Europe stick to the big cities like Paris, London and Barcelona, you might end up cutting your nights (or even your trip) short. These cities come at a cost and just one cocktail can run upwards of $15. Luckily there are so many other beautiful cities around Europe which offer an exciting nightlife at half or even a third of the cost.
