A Beary Good Hostel Singapore Reviews
Great place to stay in Singapore Jul 18, 2013
I stayed at A Beary Good Hostel for 7 nights.
Its location was its biggest selling point for me. In Pagoda Street, a pedestrian only mall in the middle of Chinatown. In the middle of a market with shop stalls and literally around the corner from delicious cheap street food. Food options on Smith Street, New Bridge Road, and across the pedestrian overpass there were more outdoor food stalls near the People's Park complex. Also McDonalds and KFC nearby. A short walk away you will find some temples, and Chinatown Complex with indoor food stalls.
It is also a 10 second walk away from the entrance to the Chinatown MRT. This is so handy as you can easily use the subway to get around the city. When it was raining, I could walk under the awnings and shelter and enter the MRT from the hostel without getting wet.
The staff were friendly and helpful; they helped me use the TV, gave me input on where I could buy a camera and how to get there, and answered my questions about tickets to see attractions sold through the hostel. I booked through HostelBookers.com months in advance. When I arrived, they had not received my reservation. However they honored the deposit I paid and gave me a bed.
Free breakfast of toast and cereal is provided. Drinks and noodles can be purchased at the hostel. Tap water is safe to drink and free :) Free wifi, two laptops available for use, TV, books. There are three rooms on three different levels fitted with bunk beds. I was on the second level. It was airconditioned and comfortable at night. Some of the beds were right in front of the door.. I would prefer a bed near the window. Lockers are provided but locks are not.
I paid approx SD$27/night. I spoke to some other backpackers who were staying at another hostel on Pagoda street who got their beds for $17/night. Their hostel looked cleaner and newer. A Beary Good Hostel was still clean though. And had a wonderful ambience. I was very happy to call it my home for the week :)
