Hostelworld says:

We like A Beary Good Hostel's location in Chinatown; the entrance is inside a covered arcade and next to the MRT station, making it convenient for getting around the city and to and from the airport. This comfortable, friendly hostel has accommodating staff on hand 24hrs a day with 'excellent knowledge of the city', according to our guests, who say they'd stay here again. It features large windows, air conditioning and clean rooms, with a 'no shoes' policy.

Property Information:

At Beary Best! we seek to retain the carefree charms and ways of a backpacker hostel and simply to provide the true essentials: comfortable and good value accommodation.

Carefully restored from an art deco heritage building, we offer a calm, laid back and friendly environment with all the facilities we believe truly matters for travellers... a dedicated lounge/dining area, multiple female & unisex bathrooms, dorms of various sizes, bike storage facilities and even an outdoor patio.

A little bus stop stands in front of the hostel and just across the street is the brand new Chinatown MRT station with connections to all key Singapore attractions – Marina Bay Sands, Sentosa Island, Orchard Road, Bugis, Esplanade and Suntec City!

Every Bunk Bed comes equipped with:
- individual power points with built in universal adapters
- 9-inch hotel grade spring mattress (new as of Nov 2015)
- Comfy pillows, quilt and fresh sheets
- specially customized metal bunk beds

Beary Best Facilities includes (but not limited to) the following:
- Security key card access + CCTV
- Free Wifi throughout the hostel
- Free use of netbooks
- Free basic breakfast (selection of cereals, spreads and even fruits)
- A chill out and comfortable guest lounge with (almost unlimited) Free Movies and Wii
- A nice outdoor garden patio (very useful for sunny days!)
- 24 hours reception & NO CURFEW
- Spacious bathrooms including Ladies only bathrooms at all floors. All with hot water and shower gel
- Pantry facilities (microwave, toaster oven, toaster, fridge)
- Free All day hot water, hot chocolate, coffee and tea
- Left luggage room
- Ridiculously cheap drinks, snacks and convenience items for sale
- Self service laundry

  • Beary Best! by a beary good hostel says

    Our guests have often remarked on how the hostel feels like a home. In fact, the hostel layout resembles an apartment, with a spacious, homely living area and comfortable dorm rooms. I think our guests also appreciate our little extras, like free local phone calls, Wi-Fi, netbooks and free-flowing hot chocolate, tea and coffee.
    We're located right in Chinatown's food street. This is one of the liveliest food spots in Singapore, with many eateries and shopping opportunities. I particularly recommend going to Maxwell Food Centre, they serve delicious and famous local food.
    We have a strict no-discrimination policy. Beary Nice has elevator access and a spacious layout which makes it more convenient for people with special needs. We do recommend potential guests to write in to us and we will as always do our utmost best to cater for their needs when possible.

    Incredibly friendly staff and reassuring security options. Loved the converters and privacy sheet. The postcard service also saved me heaps of time. My only criticism is the shower didn't look perfectly clean (I saw some fresh stains last more than 24 hours) but it was still adequate.
