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.

Room tip: Get the lower berth. It would have curtains -> Privacy + Protection from AC Wind.

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!

Hi creinalayton,

Thanks for the review and honest feedback, we really appreciate it.
We are glad you had a pleasant stay with us and enjoyed our convenient location.
We work really hard to make sure that all our guests feel welcomed and also have a clean and comfortable environment to rest. We will pass on your feedback to our housekeeping team, so that we can improve further - we do thorough housekeeping every day, and also have deep cleaning sessions scheduled, so that the hostel is well maintained and clean.
Singapore has a vibrant food culture, and Beary Best! Hostels are right smacked in the middle of famous food centres. So instead of serving basic/boring meals, 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 :)
We look forward to host you again when you are back in Singapore!

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.
