It was my second stay at the hostel, and we got the four bunk bed female dorm for the four of us this time. So it was like having a private room for oueselves. The 4 bedded female dorm is big enough for us doing our moslem prayer inside the room.

The staffs were really nice and helpful, it' the best part of the hostel beside it's location.

The hostel is located near mrt clarke quay station, but we prefered taking the bus. The Boat Quay bus stop located 3 minutes away from the hostel where we could take bus 145 or 80 to Vivocity.

The minus point is the 4 level stairs that we have to take everytime we go back to the hostel. Other than the stairs, the hostel is very recommended

I am delighted that I accepted my friend's recommendation to stay at River City Inn. The location is amazing. The hostel is sparkling clean and the girls on duty are friendly. Breakfast, coffee and 50Cents flat rate phone call to New Zealand was a great incentive. This feel just like home and I won't hesitate to recommend River City Inn to any of my friends visiting Singapore. Furthermore, the location is amazing. A walking distance to China Town where I had my dinners.

Stayed 3 nights from 5th Nov till 8th Nov 2012...More than expected. Wonder full staffs, clean & tidy atmosphere, best breakfast timings(starts in morn till 12pm), comfortable with all time coffee/tea, free hair dryer, uninterrupted WiFi service, closest MRT (Clarke quay) to connect all the places, overall i can say that one of the fantastic place to stay in SING is the RIVER CITY INN'. I would strongly recommend for all youths who wants to explore Singapore with quality accommodation in best tariff. I feel like my second home when i was leaving the place because of the lovely staff over there. I am expecting to be there after some days............ :P

Room Tip: No matter 6 dorms/ larger both are same quality... good conditioned hot and cold water for w/c

As first timers in Singapore who arrived past midnight we were a bit anxious since check-in is only until 11PM but we were greeted with warm smile and a glass of cold water to drink which eased our anxiety. The place is so clean with courteous and accommodating staff. The breakfast of bread, peanut butter and jam with hot coffee or tea always welcomes us in the morning. My children especially loved the free internet that kept them in touch with their friends back home. We surely enjoyed our stay in this Inn and will recommend it to others.

Room Tip: For Family travelling with children, we suggest the Private Room for 4 or 6 for more privacy.

Stayed here for 3 nights in November 2012.
Everything was perfect, the staffs were friendly, the facilities were clean, the location was great.
Breakfast, coffee, tea, water, wifi, clothing iron, fridges, 2 public PCs and a XBox, this place has everything that you will ever need for a good and affordable stay.
Some might think that the idea of sharing bathrooms is unhygenic, but it's different here. The public bathroom and toilet are always at tip top condition and everything is always clean and tidy.

An incident happened during my trip, I left for USS and I forgot to check out from the place. I rang up the hotel and the staff was pleasant enough to allow me to do the check out later in the evening and the best part was, I wasn't charged for another extra night of stay !

Would definitely choose this place again when I return to Singapore !
