“Good nights”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Stay for 5 nights. The hostel is very clean and tidy. The staffs were friendly and helpful. I really like the chocolate jam and tea. Its located on 4th floor but actually its not that high, i never felt tired when i reached there.

Best part about River City Inn is their location in Clarke Quay. It's near the MRT and a mall (The Central), so no problem in terms of transportation and food. The place is small, however it is clean and not that crowded. The cost of staying there is very cheap compared to others, the staff was very friendly and the owner was very helpful and accommodating. They were very patient with us when we checked out later than 12 noon and also allowed us to pack our bags in the living room after we checked out. Another plus for the inn is that it allows guests to leave their luggage at the inn even after checking out

This was my first stay in a hostel and i didn't regret it. We stayed here for 3 nights march 10-13. I booked 1 room with 4 beds because my 9 year kid with me. It's near in Clarke Quay MRT station. You can easily find the place, just follow the direction posted in their website. The place was clean and very well maintained. They served breakfast everyday (bread, banana, coffee, tea and hot choco), it's a self service, so don't expect that there's someone who will toast your bread and make you some coffee. The whole place was wi-fi zone, there's 2 desktop units with internet connection that you can use free of charge. They also sell cheaper tickets of Universal studios (RCI $68 in USS gate $74). It's very near in China town where you can find cheap souvenir items and food.

The only thing i don't like was their shower room/toilets. They only have 3 shower rooms and 3 toilets. If you will not wake up early you will queue for the shower room.

Room Tip: It's on the 4th floor and there's no lift, so DO NOT bring heavy luggage.

My first, but not last, stay at the River city inn. Nice staff, good bunk bed in a clean room. 5 minutte walk to the mrt, that takes you anywhere you want to go in Singapore, also the airport. Close to China town, the party sceen at Clark Quey, cheep food at food markeds, more expencive food at Boat Quay, you find a variaty of stuff right out the hosteldoor. I have visited Singapore many times, and have always stayed at one of the hostels in Hong Kong street, this one is the best I will say.

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...
