Why Beary Best! Hostel is special ?

Housed in a chirpy art deco heritage building, Beary Best! was conceived with the simple intent to merge backpackers practicality with hotel like facilities and comfort. An antithesis to the deluge of overpriced boutique hostels, Beary Best seek to retain the carefree charms and ways of a backpacker hostel and simply to provide the true essentials that is… comfortable and good value accomodation.

With 3 large floor space and various dorm types, Beary Best! is the biggest of the three Beary hostels. Featuring a large lounge area, airy dorms and hallways,and even a little outdoor patio, great care yet were taken to maintain a spacious and personal environment not found in any hostels.

As with all Beary hostels, Beary Best! offers an awesome location along Chinatown’s Upper Cross Street, a strategic starting point that is within 3 minutes walk to the MRT station and to many tourist attractions along Chinatown, Singapore River and Marina Bay.

From the long list of high quality facilities to abundant social spaces, we welcome fellow backpackers and budget travellers alike to experience Beary Best! Simple intent yet simply the Best! =)

How to get to Beary Best! Hostel?

Taking the MRT is the most affordable option to get to Chinatown! The steps below may sound a little bit complicated, but it really isn’t. And besides, all connections are indoors and with very little waiting time required!

However, if you are commuting during peak hours i.e. 7.30am – 9.30am or 6.00pm – 7.30pm, be ready to expect the usual sardine packed trains.

If you are carrying large suitcases, a taxi might be the best option. More so if you are travelling in a group of 3-4 person – of which in the end will just cost each of you a little over SGD 5-6 per person.

And finally only consider taking the shuttle if you are on a solo visit with large and heavy suitcases. =)

“Good hostel to stay” Good location in Chinatown area, nearby the MRT station and local bus station. Beary best hostel has good decoration with a number of bears and cute stickers on the wall. Especially, this hostel staff are really friendly and willing to help as well as give you useful advice for your trip. The only thing that I don't like is the fan in the room, together with the air conditioner it makes guests feel cold, especially guests on the top bed which is quite closed to the fan. Moreover, the hostel should have a weight for guests to weigh their luggage.
