Reviewed 17 November 2013

This hostel is great for the shared facilities. You can use an iPad or notebook, there is a washing machine, and there is a nice TV corner. Our room, however, was really disappointing. We (two persons) slept in (I'm estimating) a 6 m2 room. There was only space for a bed, nothing else was in the room. I don't think this hostel gives good value for money.

Room Tip: I would take a look at the room first before paying. Maybe there are larger rooms for two persons th...

I loveee staying at Beary Best Hostel! We stayed at the 10 bed mixed group room and got our beds following our confirmation just a day before. Upon our arrival pass midnight, we were greeted efficiently and nicely with smile. My first impression was this hostel is very clean (you have to put off your shoes entering this premise) and cute (there is a huuuge teddy bear at the corner of colourful common room). Although staying in 10 bed room, I did not feel very packed. The room is also clean with wooden floor so it's not very cold at night. The bed itself is pretty comfortable for SGD 28 and they provide what's so called curtain for more privacy, a bed lamp and electricity socket. Even a small pad to put your book or cellphone while charging. The location itself is good. There are plenty public transportation near here, bus stop almost in front of hostel and MRT station (Chinatown MRT Station) in walking distance across the street.

You are given a key card upon checking in, and there is a spacious locker. They have separate bathroom for female and male, they provide a hair dryer (that dry my hair so fast), hangers, soap and the female bathroom is clean with unfinished-look wall. Looks a bit gloomy because on of the light was off but the rest is Ok. Breakfast is simple (well this is hostel, dudes): free flow cereal, bread, milk but you can find many nearby good street hawkers. My fave was a noodle and chinese food restaurant about a block from Upper Cross Street (China town area). There is Mcdonald in walking distance and fast food in the nearby mall (Chinatown Point Mall), it's 24 hour McD by the way. They also sell cup noodle and bottled water cheaply. Nearby there is convenient store and restaurants.

So, they deserve the best hostel award for years indeed! :)

Room Tip: Please ask for 2nd floor room as (so far that i know) they dont have any elevator yet.
