Clean. Comfortable and smells great. The bathroom in the female dorm has a Muslim shower. Mrt station right across the street and Chinatown a 3 min walk. They do not serve breakfast, even though it says on Booking. Com that they do.

Hi, Thanks for your review. We are glad that you had a great stay with us. Singapore has a vibrant food culture, and Beary Best! Hostels are right smacked in the middle of famous food center. So instead of serving basic/boring breakfast, we focus on keeping our accommodation as affordable as possible - and give you insider tips to having the true local experience. Do approach any of our hosts for recommendations :) If you are ever back in Singapore we would warmly welcome you again!

It was ok. Nothing special about this hostel, there was no atmosphere at all but the location is great. There was only 1 bathroom for all the females on the floor which wasn’t ideal and the staff always came into our room early in the morning to change beds and things and they were not quiet! The hostel was good for a bed to sleep in but that’s it.

We aim to deliver the best service to all our guests, and will continue to do so with your feedback. The feedback is very valuable to us so thank you and we hope we will have the chance to host you again soon!

As Singapore is super expensive, this hostel had a good price-quality ratio. You'll get what you'll pay for. So a simple room, quite clean, breakfast with toast and coffee/tea. The location is perfect, lots of places to eat nearby and next to the metro. Don't expect luxury, you have to share your room and bathroom with many others, but I don't regret staying here at all.

Situated at a very convenient location, easy access to Chinatown MRT (Exit F) and bus stops. Lots of eating places in the vacinity, ranging from hawer centres to restaurants and eateries in shopping mall. Best of all is the 24hr check-in availability and working staff are very friendly.

It’s very near to everywhere, just a 3 min walk to mrt stations. It’s clean and comfortable. The staff is very helpful. And knows best places to go give directions. It’s old building but it’s well maintained. So many eating places nearby and also 25 hours Cheers store like 7/11.

Room was really comfortable, it was really easy to meet people and bathrooms were clean! The common room was nice with a couple of bean bags and a really comfy couch. Breakfast and kitchen was small but well suited.

Amazing Experience altogether staying at this wonderful hostel BearyBest moreover it’s pretty convenient as well as the MRT is just opposite to the hostel. I was staying at the pod which was pretty nice and comfy Toilets and washrooms were very clean I am definitely coming next time to this place and would highly recommend Beary Best Hostel to stay and yes not to forget the breakfast which is quite good as well. Great lounge area where you can spend time getting to knw new people around the world. Altogether it is value for money.
