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 (free on check in and check out day. Charge applies for longer term storage)
- Ridiculously cheap drinks, snacks and convenience items for sale
- Self service laundry
- Fire Safety Certification
