Absolutely awful hostel The advertised enhanced cleaning, social distancing, AC did not exist The hostel also houses local and migrant workers, albeit in their own dorm, but they still share the shared washing and toileting facilities. The state is these was a disgrace including faeces on the toilet wall!! I had cumulative rubbish under my bottom bunk with no privacy curtain and a non lockable allocated locker The stock photos of this hostel are not accurate as there are no soft furnishings in the lounge area, only hard stools with a smoking area inside the communal dorms!!! The fridge was delapidated and rusty and the bedding which was inside the locker had to be made on arrival, which was frustrating after a long journey The bedding was thin and of poor quality along no towel, which was at least the latter was advertised accurately My standards aren't high as I've stayed in 3rd world country dorms with this being the worst The 4-5* reviews are either bogus or judging from their nationalities their hostel experiences are of low expectations for the price paid I had booked a 5 night stay but left after 2 nights as it was so horrible...didn't care about not getting a 3 night unused refund I moved to the Chic Capsule Hostel. 5 min walk from this hell hole Yes, I did complain at the time but their response was a standard...sorry I have also raised a complaint with Hotel.com who are taking the above seriously as this establishment is being used under false pretences and advertisement…
Food was good service was also very good staff iss co operative 🥰🥰 ms. Prerna and all other staff members helped uss alot and such a Cooperative I really would like to come again Jaipur and I will only stay in Radisson Blu
We've had a wonderful stay in Bear Best! Great location, very near the MRT stations and 7/11s, some tourist spots are walkable. They have very friendly and helpful staff. The beds are comfortable and sleeping room is clean. They provide free coffee and tea. They just need to work on the cleanliness in the pantry area and keep the microwave clean. But all in all, this hostel is great!!
2018 REPLY → I had a lovely, relaxing time at this place. It was everything I needed and wanted from a hostel and very new, clean and homely. Excellent service. A fantastic run hostel with outstanding service. This is a great find and staff are fantastic. Peter was exceptional and very pleasant. I would highly recommend staying here and will definitely return.
Everything as described in booking website, everywehere was clean, air condition was good and quietly, I recommended, everything was ok, near to MRT, shops. In hostel are Singapur maps available. I hope I will back soon
I live and breathe hostels. During this trip to Singapore, I tried 4 different hostels and Beary Best at Chinatown was the beary best. Though, they do not provide breakfast like other hostels, Beary Best makes it up with it's quality, friendliness and overall ambience. They have got you covered, A to Z (minus the breakfast B). Their laundry is not very expensive ($5 for a load to wash and $3 to dry), don't want to use the dry machine, dry it in the sun for free. Other hostels used to charge ~10 to 12 SGD for washing and laundry. They have free coffee, milk and hot water 24/7. Lockers provided by the hostel very spacious and could fit my entire 60L backpack. The bed matresses were of very high quality and so was the pillow and the comforter. I had good sleep on the beds. All lower berth beds had curtains too, good for privacy and protection from the AC wind. The hostel is located in the very accessible part of Chinatown and is at walking distances to Clarke Quay, Singaporean Parliament, Boat Quay, Gardens by the bay and all other party places in Singapore and the touristy spots. The bus stations is 20 metres away and the MRT stations is 50 metres away. Very friendly and knowledgable staff. They know Singapore in and out and will guide you what to do not and not what to do. You can discuss anything with them - Singapore, How much stupid Donald Trump is, politics, economics and policies, food, transportation, anything.…
The location was great, I could walk to all the main tourist sports and get food in China town. Staff were very nice too. They did clean regularly but I would say that they needed to pay more attention to detail under the beds and in corners of accumulated dust. The kitchen is minimal so expect to eat out!
once stay here back in 2014 and they still keep the place in good shape. location is no doubt near to mrt station, bus stop also near, food and mall near by, mini market also near by. thanks beary best!
Very near to MRT and bus station. so it's very easy to travel around Singapore. Very convenient and nice stay. Bed is ok. Room is totally private. Staff was very helpful. Clean room and shared toilets.
Not too recomended if you want a peacefull night and kinda too crowded. 1 room even had 10 persons in it. Perfect breeding ground for corona. Bed are clean, blanket a bit overused. Got locker in room but useless if guest had oversized back pack. So it's gonna crowded already jam pack space. Overral cleaness are standart. Got coffee,tea and chocolate.
