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

I would say NO NO NO and NO. The only reason you could go for it is the subway at 1 min. To arrive in the building, it is very dirty (how is it possible? Nothing is dirty in Singapore), rooms are ridiculously small as I could even not let my bag inside the room. Bathroom was dirty and breakfast... More

The staffs was so rude and incompetent. The room,toilet and front desk was so dirty. I can't believe that this place that look more like a storeroom can be opened as a backpacker hostel. Even though it was close to train station, but the noise at night was really disturbing. I will not be back there anymore. Thanks...

Very close to the train station, you can get a train straight from the airport to Alljunied (where the hostel is) and you literally walk 1 minute and you're there The area is a bit of a let down, it's a bit dirty but suppose you have to expect places like that, not directly in the city centre There are...

They have crammed way to many bunk beds into rooms, and people come and go at all hours which inhibits the ability to sleep. It is over staffed, and the staff seem to all live in the hostel occupying beds that are not booked that night, during the day they lounge around watching TV and using the communal computers. I...
