This place is good if you are traveling alone. This place near with MRT Clarke Quay and Central Plaza. You can also going to thw famous Clarke Quay Riverside by foot within 5-10 minutes and China Town within 10-20 minutes. But this place is on 3rd floor of building so it will make you exhausted if you bring a big... More

Well kept, tidy and very nice experience staying here. The staff were really helpful too. I got a bed near window, with bed light, charging point and good WiFi access. I would suggest this for any backpackers coming to Bugis, Chinatown or around Marina Bay.

Clean and cosy hostel in a great location. The breakfast was good. Would definitely stay there again. This hostel is not a party hostel. Good choice for people who want to explore the city and have a good sleep.

The French lady on reception made me feel awkward staying here. She made zero attempt to create any rapport. Quite unappealing and made me feel quite disconnected from my stay in the accommodation. Aircon gets turned off at 9am. It's so warm in the dorm that it's uncomfortable to sleep in or nap during day should you need to. I... More

Our air-conditioning in the dorms are turned on from 8pm to 9am daily for 13 continuous hours through the night to ensure that guests get a good night's rest. In the day, the fans in the rooms are turned on for ventilation when most guests head out for sight-seeing. The air-conditioning in the living area is turned on in the... More

Spend your holiday in Singapore and try to stay in this nice, clean and homy hostel. People there are so helpful and kind. I feel like i stay at my apartments with a lot of friends. Singapore is amazing city! Hostel has cool location, you can walk to the river, China town and MRT so easy.

This was my second time staying at the River City Inn and it was just as great as the first time. Friendly staff, very clean facilities and great location a couple of minutes walk away from Clarke Quay.

I have stayed in River City Inn during my recent leisure trip to Singapore. There are only great things to remember about the place and I shall make sure I recommend the place to my friends. Of all the good things about the hostel (great location, price, nightlife) I would like to point out excellent customer service. Staff is friendly... More

Very affordable at $29 in a ladies room. Extremely clean, comfortable and cosy. A nice lounge area and very clean toilets. Aircon curfew but even so the rooms are still well ventilated and doesn't make you feel hot and uncomfortable. Clean bedsheets and cutleries for your perusal. Microwave oven and fridge provided. Wifi is fast and reliable. Boardgames and collection... More

Located close enough but quiet enough from the busier Clarke quay area of the city. Plenty of bars and restaurants to use in Clarke quay. Used a shared bus from the airport which dropped me outside the hostel. Showers good, facilities good, breakfast basic but a good start to the day. Spacious hostel located amongst another building. Some stairs to... More
