Adler Hostel is located in Chinatown, Singapore. This hostel was established in an Art Deco-style conservation building, and has been operating since 2012. The main idea is how to present a hostel with a feel that is no less fun than boutique hotels, but with a more affordable rate for flashpackers. The end result is a hostel with a fairly luxurious feel, but the rate is still relatively more affordable when compared to regular hotels.

Wink Hostel

Sometimes staying in a capsule hotel means you have to have extra tolerance for the commotion that other residents might cause. Understandably, the sleeping capsule is adjacent like pores in the honeycomb, which means the potential to hear the commotion from the next capsule is very likely. But believe me, it’s very unlikely to happen if you are staying at Wink Hostel.
