We got a private room there - small, dark, with a bunk bed (for 90 sgd a night!! Singapore is expensive). We had to use the common bathrooms, but they were rather clean. Breakfast is just toast and milk and cereals. Typical youth hostel, hippie style. I felt like being 18 again. The location is absolutely unbeatable - close to...

The hostel is great for a quiet trip. The beds are comfortable, the bathrooms are ok, the staff is very kind. A very simply breakfast is included. Is well located, in Chinatown and so close to the metro station

My partner and I booked 3 nights at the Beary Best hostel in Singapore. From the minute we walked in we felt comfortable and welcomed. Shoes off at the desk with the kitchen and lounge to either side. All doors were well secured with keys and access cards. Breakfast was simple but delightful. Bread, cereal, jam, jelly, coffee, and tea...

We booked Beary good hostel because it is the nearest to the MRT station in Pagoda St. However, when we arrived to the address stated in their website, it was Maple Lodge's which is a different hostel. We were very disappointed to know that it is actually closed and has been merged into Beary Best which is in Upper Cross...

I enjoyed my stay here very much. The common room is very comfy and great for hanging out with other backpackers or just to lounge around. The dorms were nice and the beds were comfy. Only thing I would have liked is maybe for the individual bathroom stalls to have a light as they are quite dark at night.

Atmosphere and people were very friendly, gave great advice and very helpful. Sadly the beds and pillows were uncomfortable and the duvet covers didn't fit the duvet inners so more often than not you had to re-cover your duvet in the middle of the night. Not enough bathrooms for the amount of beds. 1 bathroom with a toilet and shower...

Staff are friendly and extremely helpful. Beds are comfortable and have curtains on the bottom bunk. Central location with access to several MRT and bus routes. Breakfast is simple but use of a fridge means you can spiced it up with store bought goods.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful 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.
