While my stay was short (just two nights), I was satisfied with Beary Best. It was a decent value for Singapore for dorm room prices (around $20 a night for one bed) and the entire hostel was very clean. The rooms had nice air conditioners and fans with lockers.
Cons: The staff are nice an pretty helpful, but there are signs everywhere around the hostel micromanaging your actions. Examples: flushing the toilet, what shower pressure your allowed to use, asking to turn on the air conditioning, how loud the TV can be in the common room, shoes on/off, etc. I understand the need to make the hostels expectations known, but it was a bit overdone. Also, there are stuffed bears everywhere. Literally, everywhere. They also included signs on them telling you not to touch the bears. Again, going slightly overboard.
Overall, if your looking for a decently priced place with clean room and facilities, it's a good choice.
