The hostel as a building is fine- clean dorms, beds and showers. The lounge area is comfortable and well kept. The location is great, pretty much opposite China Town MRT so it's easy to get around. The free breakfast is basic but fine. Unfortunately we were asked to move dorms on the 2nd night, even though I'd booked in advanced... More

Shower cubicles have lights on the outside only, how strange. Some hooks to complement the tower rail would help. Shared sink on L1 was completely blocked when I was there. The dorm has these really bright night lights at the side of each bed, just so happens one dorm mate decided to have her light on when she was asleep... More

The Beary Best has a good location, which is opposite the Chinatown MRT. The hostel also near the Chinatown Point - a kind of supermarket, the Chinatown food street and souvenir shops. It also has an adorable decoration inside the hostel with bears everywhere. Moreover, they put some little funny cutie sticky notes for reminding the guests, they were really... More

Stayed there a couple nights. Location is awesome, but the room was not worth the money. We slept in a bunk bed with low quality spring mattresses which were not comfortable. Bathroom had only a single sink which was cloaked the whole time we have been there. Overall cleanliness was below our expectations for the top1 property. Also there was... More

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...

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.
