Really nice hostel, staff were friendly and really helpful as they booked some of our tours. In a great location right in the heart of Chinatown and close to the MRT. The hostel was clean, quiet and had great wifi connection. Free breakfast is also included

They did not have any double bed private rooms, however it was that hot that bunk beds were fine for my boyfriend and I. Thank god for the air con. Bathrooms were fine... More

This is a great hostel located in Singapore's China Town. The bear theme is a bit goofy and the rest of the decour and interior is just so so. However, the staff here were all wonderful. They were very friendly and personable, which really made me feel at home at Beary Best. Even though I was in town for a... More

Loved how the MRT is just across the street. While this hostel is not flashy and rather basic - it has some practical points i.e. sufficient male and female bathrooms/showers, various dorm types which is useful as they were able to cater to our group and a nice lounge area for guests to mingle. Having stayed in other hostels before,... More

The Friday was quiet but had noisy people staying in room on the Saturday who kept forgetting their key cards and knocking throughout the night. Otherwise the hostel was in a great location just across from Chinatown mrt station and close to good cheap food... More
