It was my first time visiting SG and decided to stay in Beary best since the price was budget friendly and it was found at the heart of Chinatown. Their description was not kidding at all. The train station and bus/taxi stop was just right outside the hostel. You need not worry about your transportation. What I also liked best... More

I was on a solo trip in SG and I booked Beary Best Hostel. It has a great location. Very near to all tourist attractions, malls, restaurants, money changers, and subway. If you like walking, you can actually just walk from Beary Best to Marina Bay Sands, Clark Quay, and Chinatown. I booked the room for 8, the all female... More

It was my first time to travel abroad and went solo. My sister was the one who advised me to stay at Beary. I find the place cozy and feels like home. There are signs which can guide you through the place, like you should be the one washing your own dishes, clean-as-you-go thing, as it teaches you to be... More

I stayed in Singapore for seven weeks with a group of students from South Carolina, you'll probably see their reviews as well. Seven weeks is a long time to stay in a hostel and the Beary Best quickly became my home. Obviously great for long term trips but short terms trips are perfect, too, with easy check in and simple...

Beary Best Hostel was recommended to me by several friends who have stayed there in the past, and I can see why. Here are some things to know when staying at Beary Best: - Very close to Chinatown Station Exit E (just across the street!) - The bulk of Chinatown is right behind the hostel, which makes its location good...

I dont know how many times i've stayed here, i think more than 5 times. They have a comfy bed and pillow, a great breakfast, cute design and concept, and friendly host. I just cross the street to get to MRT station, foodcourt, and many atraction around China Town. You'll never ever regret to stay here 😊

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.
