I stayed for some nights in a 26 bed dorm and it was OK. Not really good not bad. Mattresses were a bit hard and had a used feel to them (holes) the staff was nice but not overly friendly. The facilities are in good shape and clean (as the rest of the hostel is as well). If you want... More

The staff were very friendly. In a great position so close to the mrt. The breakfast was fine for me, toast, spreads and a banana. I slept in the 25 bed dorm and if was very quiet each night. Would recommend!

Everything is very good, except its location is on the 4th floor without the elevator,, which quite tough for traveller with big luggage. Staff is really nice. Air condition is proper cool whole night.

I've been a hotel dweller throughout my many travels for years and always thought hostels were bottom of the barrel, disgusting places where you have to sleep with a knife under your pillow. Well my perception changed after staying at River City Inn so much so that I don't think I'll be staying at another hotel for a least awhile.... More

Me and my friend came to Singapore for the weekend so only stayed here for two nights. It was very cute, great location in Chinatown near the MRT and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. I would stay here again.

If you're a fairly independent traveler looking for something more grown up than a bare bones party hostel yet still uncompromising on price, cleanliness and comfort, then River City Inn is perfect for you. The owners of this hostel also manage it and are very OCD about cleanliness. They even make everyone take their shoes off before entering the hostel.... More

The location is superb. I like the atmosphere as well and I like they don't use capsule beds which make I feel a bit stuck and isolated. It is clean and the people who work there are helpful. Will visit again. but sometimes it's hard to get 4th floor without a lift.

This is like to be home in Singapore. Nice rooms and clean communal areas and toilets. I loved it! what I would change is that I stayed in the room just next to the living room and a guy was skyping so loud with no earphones or mic at 2 or 3 am. I couldn't sleep because of that but... More
