It took us about 10 minutes in our room to notice the bed bugs. The owner has done a good job of trying to keep them out of the beds (the bugs were coming in through the outlets which the owner had taped around to try to keep them confined to a small space.) The beds were pulled away from... More

The immediate outer area of the hostel was a bit discouraging. But the hostel itself is quite clean and well maintained. Laundry facility and wifi available. Few steps away from the Al junaid mrt station. I would recommend twin shared room though. Its in a different building and is nicer

WoW is close to the MRT, clean and friendly. We enjoyed the air con and the cumfy beds. The shared bath wasn't the cleanest but the kitchen seemed well-equipped. They could work on reducing the noise from within the hostel.

Good points about this hostel: -2 seconds (actually) from MRT -a ton of cheap food choices at your doorstep -comfy beds Bad points: -TINY rooms. We had to pack our bags at separate times because there wasn't enough room to have both open at once. -super thin walls. Could actually hear every word the people in the other room were... More

It's just at the foot of the mrt so you can easily get into to town within ten minutes, ,many restaurants and cheap food courts around which is appreciated when you're a backpacker. We found Elvin, who runs the place, very attentive and nice, gave us tips and was genuinely interested in our travels. We even got upgraded to a... More

I just spent 3 nights at the Wow Hostel (from 21 st to 24 th December) and I have enjoyed my time there. The manager Alvin is friendly and didn't charge me the 12 % taxes that were mentioned on the printed document. The dorm was clean, with air con. Toilets/showers were also clean, with toilet paper provided and hot... More

We booked a twin room (bunk beds) and stayed 2 nights. The private rooms are in a separate building to the dorms. We could see (and hear) the MRT from our room. It is literally a minutes walk away which is great for getting around the city. There's also a 7/11 nearby for basics, and a really tasty Muslim/Indian restaurant... More

Wow is not IN the city centre, is not a fancy place,but if you're on a budget and your back need a rest, that's the perfect place: cheap, clean, simple, basic. Singapore can become quite expensive compared to other places in South East Asia, but Wow will help you save some s$ sleeping in his big, mix, a/c, dorm, or... More

The beds and location are good, but that's all. - You pay 10% extra service charge, but don't expect any service. We didn't agree about this and kept talking and at the end we didn't had to pay this, so give it a try :-) - They charge extra money for many things, so be aware (for example for single... More
