So far in Singapore I haven't found a hostel that provides ample space for socializing, which is common in Western countries. The Beary Best Hostel is no exception. The reception, lounge, kitchen, and breakfast rooms are basically combined on the ground floor and the total area is still quite small. The bedroom wasn't that spacious, either (I stayed in 8-bed...

Beary Best is our home away from home. The staff was amazing and friendly (props to Idayu and Asik for our epic karaoke session).The friendly reminders everywhere were both cute and fun. It was great to be there. Can't wait to come back here soon!

I've never seen hospitality staff go out of their way to provide you as much information as possible. It did not seem to matter who was managing the front desk all staff were eager to answer any and all questions. Along with their answers came lots of little "only locals would know" tidbits! I wish I would have ran into... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colorful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
