I stayed here with my family last week and we choose the 3-bed private dorm which is at the 4th floor. The room is okay, but I think they should do a little renovation for the room and outside the room. There is only one room at the 4th floor and you have to go downstairs for the bathroom. They...

The location of this place is unbeatable, in the centre of Chinatown, just a couple of minutes walk from the MRT stop. The front desk staff were super friendly and helpful, and the common areas of the hostel are spacious and ideal for meeting other hostel-goers if you're travelling solo. Only downside is that a couple of the locks seem... More

I would like to say thank you for all staff 'Vanessa, Hongbin, Has' together with housekeeping team. The great service from Beary Best! hostel is kind of one-stop service. I feel like I stay in the second home. : )) They are very professional to recommend a lot of attractions by heart and response to my preference intentionally. They are... More

The room also clean, comfort and not too crowded (when i stayed). 5. There's a lil concern about the toilet rooms. Please fixed the lock of the... More

My friend and i stayed in female dor, the bathroom is kind of simple. My suggestion is that consider the c/p value, choose the mix dor might be better, coz the public bathroom is more comfortable than the female's and the price is cheaper. The front desk workers are very friendly and nice, we were very happy to meet nice... More

I booked a private room for 3 person. The room and the hotel very clean, there's many shared facilities like kitchen, bathroom, livingroom, breakfast, for free. but have bad ventilation upstairs, but it's not problem anymore, because we only stay for sleep. The best part, once you come out from chinatown MRT station (uppercross st.) the hotel located opposite the... 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.
