We were in Singapore last Nov. 19 until the 25th and we decided to stay at Beary Best Hostel in Upper Cross street. I can say that it was a "beary" nice experience. The place was located very near to MRT stations, the Chinatown, the temples and some hawker places. Best of all, the staff were so nice and friendly....

My experience with Beary Good hostel is always has been a "Beary" good experience. First in 2012 when they have other three branches. And now, most recently October 2012. When you walk into this hostel, the first thing you will realise is its coziness with a touch of bears all around the hostel. There will be tons of bear related...

Really like the simple breakfast! And the hot coffee makes a good company at night. Had so much fun with friends in the 8-beds room. Nice service, nice bathroom, nice everything. Maybe some bulky furnitures and floors can be fixed so it looks brand new :)

Private room contained bunk beds which were very comfortable. Staff were extremely helpful and considering we had an extremely late check-in and a very early check-out, this was a bonus. Travelling around Singapore made easy by the fact that the entry to rail station is directly across the road.

The room was clean and the people were super friendly! It was a good experience. They sell mineral water and other cold drinks in case you're too lazy to go to minimarts. Coffee, tea, and hot chocolate are free all day! Plus they serve breakfast. There's also McDonalds nearby if you want heavier meals.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
