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

I stayed here for three nights in an all female 8 beds dorm with its own bathroom. The dorm and beds are clean and comfortable. The room also has working airconditioning plus two fans on the ceiling. Both can be turned up or down. The bathroom is more or less clean: toilet, sink, floor and shower floor are all good.... More

Had our family trip to Singapore last January and as we were trying to limit our budget, so we decided to book a private 9-bed dorm room at Beary Best Hostel. I've researched other inns, hostels and even checked AirBNB but this was still the best place to stay in. We just paid $1200sgd for a 5-day. That's roughly $133sgd... More

I had a good time roaming around Chinatown and other neighboring parts of the city-state. The price was a bit higher than most BUT the location is very convenient. The taxi driver immediately spotted it and is very near to bus stops. 3-5 minutes walk and you're at the MRT station. I was supposed to stay for a night but... More

I was originally worried that my family wouldn't like that I booked them in a backpacker. But my family loved Beary Best just as much as I did! Place: Excellent location. We were everywhere in a couple of minutes. The attractions (Sentosa, Marina Bay, USS, Merlion Park) were all less than 10minutes! Even the airport that they said was pretty... More

Great location, just in front of the MRT Exit but you have to walk to the intersection to cross the street. Great staff, but don't expect them to be in uniform, accommodates all our requests and offers different tours. Great value for money, given the location and the city itself, it will be difficult to find a place to stay... 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.
