I've been to several hostels but no one is barely comparable to River City Inn! Great location, just next to Clarke Quay MRT and Boat Quay to hang out. The place is very clean, neat and tidy! I felt like home. And the atmosphere is great. Highly recommended!! :)

River City Inn locates near Clarke Quay, which is a very convenient place for backpackers to travel. The decoration of the hostel makes you feel like home.

I have stayed many times in YMCA on Orchad Road but as they have raised their rates I searched for some alternatives. Seemed that hostel was only option (I had to give up from pool but my budget set the limits). So I choose no.1 based on others reviews. And I'm not disappointed. Location - good enough. From airport it... More

This is my second trip to Singapore but first timer when it comes to travel solo and mix dorm. I'm not really sure what to expect when I arrive but all went quite well. I don't have to wait too long before being shown around the place and finally to my bed. Wow, it sure remind me of the good... More

Singapore is NOT a cheap place to visit but this inn is so worth your money! It is clean and centrally located. The beds and comfortable and the people are nice. We were travelling with small kids which wasn't a problem at all (thank you for the flexibility): we all slept great! I warmly recommend the River City Inn to... More

Perfect place to stay whilst staying in Singapore. Extremely clean, and very chilled out place. Really nice and quite to escape the hustle and bussle of the city and relax especially after a long flight. I was in the 26 bed dorm but was pleasantly surprised, best sleep I had on my whole trip, little curtains around the bed for... More

Cons: Air Conditioning on only at night, if you have a big night or are jet lagged be prepared to sweat it out in your bed without a window, staff were a bit patronizing and unfriendly, small common room that was always jammed with people, pathetic breakfast of just toast, no window in the room Pros: Location, Cleanliness, Fast Wifi...
