A Beary Good Hostel, Singapore

I always booked budget hotels when visiting Singapore. Here are the list of the hotels I stayed before:
But last year when I went Singapore alone, I decided to try out staying in dorm instead. Cheap, is my main consideration. Plus, there were two of my guy friends joining me, hence staying in mixed dorm would be the suitable option. And this is where I stumbled upon a cute and chic hostel at reasonable price - A Beary Good Hostel.

#1: A Beary Good Hotel

There are plenty of hostels around Singapore but why I choose this? Mainly because it's so close to the MRT station. The location is exactly tucked right in the center of lively and bustling Singapore's Chinatown - I'm absolutely lovin' it.

#2: Located on the first floor, we were greeted by a huge teddy bear. So fluffy I'm gonna die!

#5: Maps and guide books for the hostel guides

We paid 15% deposit in advanced and the balance only paid upon check-in. Once done with the check-in process, I was given a keycard to access to the room and hostel.

#6: 12 bed mixed dorm

We booked the 12 bed mixed dorm for only SGD27 per night. Stepped in the dorm, there was no inside and I believe they were outside marvelling around Singapore. I was assigned on the upper deck. The dorm was fully air-conditioned operated and each bed is equipped with individual reading light and personal powerpoint. There is large locker provided for the guest but lock is not given. Luckily I always brought extra locks whenever I travel. Now let's check the other area of this hostel.

  2. Hotel 81 is not that bad. I stayed there once when I first came SG and told my friend. My friend told me I go sleep at 'ayam' place because she said usually ppl go there to do thing. But well, rumors will always be rumors...

    however, i love wanderlust. you can check it out. abit pricey but the setting is cool.

  5. Trekking in Nepal is still the most favorite adventure holiday activity in the country. The two classic trekking routes either to Everest base camp or the Annapurna circuit are not easy and the challenge you'll face on either route will have a lasting effect. The Manaslu route trek around the world's eighth largest mountain is more remote but no less beautiful passing through stunning bamboo forests, villages filled with prayer flags and culminating with spectacular views from Larkya La. Mustang is an easier cultural trek, suitable for those with good general fitness but not necessarily any previous trekking experience. The language, culture and tradition of the Mustang region are still mostly Tibetan making this one of the most culturally interesting treks. There are shorter treks up the Langtang Valley and Helambu which are still hard work but also deeply rewarding. They generally begin in Kathmandu, leading through large grazing areas covered in flowers, dotted with stone huts used for butter making, Sherpa, Tamang villages and the homes of yak herders, right up to the Tibetan border.
