“Beary awesome experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2013

I stayed at Beary Best for 11 days. Since i was taking a course in Singapore, it was imperative that i be comfortable and have a "sense of home" while staying at the hostel. Beary Best provided a safe and restful haven for me to study and rest my weary head. On top of this, the receptionists were very helpful and accommodating. They directed me to must see places, were willing conversation partners, and even went out of their way to ensure i catch my flight home on time. overall, my stay was enjoyable and worthwhile. Thank you for the beary awesome experience!

Room Tip: request for the lower bunk if you are staying for a while.

All is excellent. I loved it. I have stayed here 5 times whenever I'm in SG. Will come back over and over again. Perfect location and surroundings. Value for money. Helpful and friendly staff. There is nothing I have to complain about. So it is highly recommended.

I stay there for 4 nights 5 days, it was an amazing experience. The service there is good and the people there are so nice, helpful and friendly too. The bed, facilities, bathroom and common room are clean, up to date and good. The environment and deco is so vibrant and a lot of bears in ever conner. The hostel is located at such strategic location near to the MRT and tourist spots as well food courts and restaurants. The Wi-Fi is strong and good signal and the air-condition is cool.

Room Tip: Female dormitory is better, clean and no snoring compare to the mix dormitory

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.
