“Beary Good”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

A very safety place with enhanced security lock whenever you wanted to enter the hostel, even if you wanted to enter the dorm! Bears everywhere with contrast colourful walls could make you feel warm and cosy. Very near to the Chinatown MRT and centrally located. However, it was rather disappointed to the service of the staff at the counter (daytime). Not really very friendly and helpful. I put my toiletries in the shower room but it was lost after few hours, when I asked the staff about it (not even at the counter), she just said that maybe other tenants mistook it. Not even wanted to bother about it. But the staff at the night time was much better and more helpful.

Beary Best

My husband booked Beary Best for our visiting relatives of 12 people during December holiday for 3 nights. He spoke to the owner, Lisa, and she was polite and helpful. Location wise, it's ideal. The rooms were rather small and facilities lacking. But for the price paid, it was acceptable.

But the encounters with Nadia, the receptionist, were a turn off. They checked in at 11:00 AM. She was overwhelmed that 10 guests came early and needed to leave their luggage while waiting for their room to be ready at 2:00PM. She never smiled, was abrupt, and even said “Oh you guys have plenty of time. Why don’t you go and kill it”, as though, chasing us out of the hostel.

Arrangements were then made with her for 18 ‘discounted’ Legoland tickets. The next morning, before, they went sightseeing, it was confirmed with Nadia that the tickets will be paid and collected that night as the bus trip to Legoland, Johor will leave very early in the morning the next day. When we inquired about the tickets that night, we were told that it will be only available the next morning, earliest at 10:00AM. To clarify matters, my husband spoke to Nadia by phone and instead of being apologetic, she was argumentative and verbally abusive shouting “F” words. He told her that kind of attitude was not appropriate and he will tell Lisa about it. She replied, ”I don’t care you ‘F… S...” Realizing it was useless talking to her, we finally decided to just buy our tickets at Legoland.

She does not fit to be on the front desk to even welcome guests. Such rude behavior tarnished Beary Best Hostel.

A really nice place to stay for a night or two,just in the heart of Chinatown,walking distance to beautiful Marina Bay.Cheap and with breakfast.Bathrooms are so so,a little messy.I will not complain on other customers behavior,because you never know...I can only complain on Stuff.Girls were really nice,but in the night there were 2 Guys in a front desk.They were talking a lot,quite loudly.Unfortunatelly in the night as well.I woke up at 4.30,because they were preparing breakfast O.o I went to the toilet and saw this,but after coming back to my bad,it was quiet.

Beary best hostel is a upper clean and confortable place to stay. There is a lot of space on each floors and within clean rooms and free breakfast is included. 24 Hr reception, a confortable space with laptops, a Tv and wifi everywhere make the hostel a best place to relax. The place is strategically very well located, on a upper good street between a shopping mall and chinatown MRT station, market and foodstreet area where you could enjoy fresh fruit juice and amazing meals.
