the place is very clean, roooms are nice (you can really get a good night rest in a dorm), great location - the MRT is 5 minutes away, and many attractions are available by foot If ever visit Singapore again, I will stay in RiverCity Inn

This was my second trip to Singapore, and I had an infinitely better experience at River City Inn - the location is easy and convenient for exploring by foot or by MRT, the staff are exceptionally helpful, and it is clean and organized. Even the breakfast was well presented, and had much longer hours (6 to 11) than most other hostels. The other guests were friendly, and respectful of noise and light in the larger shared rooms (which was initially my biggest concern, but not a problem at all).

Room Tip: Bed 8 is right in front of the outdoor sign - a little more light and right in front of the door to...

Less than 5 minutes walk to Clarke Quay MRT station, near to pubs and bars!
15 minutes walk to The Merlion

Simple but nice breakfast with coffee, toast with butter, peanut, chocolate and a banana ;-)

Toilet and bathroom is very clean, strong showerhead and water pressure.

Stayed in 4-bed room, the ventilation is a bit poor, maybe due to energy-saving policy.

Overall, RCI meets my expectation as one of Singapore's best hostels!

The Location is good,
It near is very near the Clarke Quay.
the staff are nice and kind.
The place is safe and clear.
The price is cheap.
They offers free coffee and tea.
It matters a lot to those coffee lovers.
But the men and women share the same bathroom.

Cozy place to stay! I could make foreign friends. And it is very easy to get to any tourism spots such as Marina Bay Sands and Merlion Park because of good location. If i go to Singapore again, I would like to stay at River City Inn!

Room Tip: Comer suites are large and sunny

It is very nice location and easy to go anywhere because it is very near the SMRT. Also, the room is much cleanliness. The staffs are very friendly and nice service. I love the breakfast here just simply and nice. It is worth to stay here. Feel like home. I have got new friends and nice talk with them.
