I have stayed for a few days at River City Inn during the business trip to Singapore. The location is perfect (near Clarke Quay MRT station). Friendly and helpful staff, especially Cindy. Toilets and showers impeccably clean. Also, it is quiet at night when compared to other hostels. I would greatly recommend River City Inn for your stay in Singapore.

Comfortable,very clean -room, living room, toilets, bathrooms- friendly staffs, close to mrt station, i'm definitely coming back. My only complaint was the dom can be a bit hot at night. Not a big problem but would be nice if more fans added.

We stayed there last May 29 to June 1. The place, although a bit small, is very nice and comfortable. For those who are on a budget but wants a decent place to stay in Sinagpore, I highly recommend River City Inn. The staff is approachable and really helpful. The room where we slept for 3 nights can accommodate 24... More

My friend and I enjoyed our stay at River City Inn. We had to walk for five mins to go to the train station, and just a little further we had Clarke Quay. Which was really nice. The staff were nice and helpful. Overall a nice place to stay at :)

(Stayed 1 night, 26 Bed Dorm) I was back a year after my first stay at River City Inn. I had stayed previously for 3 nights and this time I needed something to cushion a 18 hour layover to my next flight.

Considering the prices of accommodation in SG, this one's really worth the money. Although the room I stayed in is quite small (and I had to share it with 6 other guests), the friendliness of the staff and its location in the city were able to compensate. The hostel in Chinatown near Clarke Quay, and if you want to go... More

Second time I've stayed here. It's in a great location to explore the city and the staff are very helpful. Able to store my bags and get changed before my evening flight, on the day of checkout. Very clean and tidy, only downside is it's not the most social of backpackers but would definitely stay again.
