I booked for a private room for 3 people. But the private room located root top, this is not so convenience to the old people. Because private room is no attach with the toilet. The bed frame is no good in condition, it got sound when we turn our body at night time. This hostel is more suitable for backpacker... More

Great proximity to transport, air conditioning, wifi were all good. Food places close by. Beary Best also offers discount vouchers for local sites, but ,make sure you book these ahead as you will have to wait at least half an hour for your tickets to arrive. Not so good was the 5% extra charge for paying on Mastercard.

I've been to Singapore twice and I stayed here every time! The location itself (Chinatown) is already a tourist attraction. Its also in front of an MRT Station like SERIOUSLY, so convenient! :) Not to mention the staff, they are very accommodating and helpful. They will go above and beyond their work just to help you. One time, when my... More

Perfect location. MRT right across the street. Stayed in 10 bed dorm, each bed had light and powerpoint. Room was clean, bed was comfy, locker for each bed. Bathrooms have hot water and were clean. Wifi works. Staff very helpful. Lacks atmosphere but step outside and you'll find it! One of the better hostels I've stayed in, would highly recommend.

The hostel itself is nice but needs update; The sink in the boy's common restroom is clogged, bed sheet feels damp and musky sometimes, and the top bunker bed should also have its own privacy cover like the bottom one. The best thing about the hostel is the location as It's just a stone throw away from Chinatown MRT station.... More

It was in a good location. The lobby allowed for a very social atmosphere. The beds were comfortable. Wifi was fast. Showers/bathroom was clean with great water pressure. I would return to this hostel.

Very good location in Chinatown and relatively quiet, but overall not a pleasant stay. Every corner of the place is packed with (old) teddy bears which gives the place a strange vibe. Not much socializing. Cleanliness was ok but the facilities were very basic. At first we were supposed to stay in a very small double private in which the... More

Had pretty much everything you want from a good hostel. Location - MRT literally across the road (and 2 stops to Bayfront where Marina Bay Sands / Gardens by the Bay is) and Chinatown 5 minutes walk around the corner. Friendly and sociable - nice little common room and free breakfast was a good opportunity to chat to people. Staff... More

The rooms were tidy and the staff was nice! The decoration with teddy bears is a little bit strange :D location is great too, because the hostel is in opposite to the underground station "Chinatown" (Chinatown is a good place for dinner in the evening and its very central)!

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.
