This was my first time travelling alone and it was too expensive to book a hotel room in Singapore so I started looking into hostels instead - i can came across River City Inn which was the PERFECT accomodation for a budget traveller (and groups too!).

LOCATIONS: it is about 5-7min walk from Clarke Quay SMRT station and is very accessible. The street is very safe and across from a 7-11 store. It is also about 5 min walk from a major shopping center called Central.

STORAGE & SAFETY: luggage is kept under your bunkbed and valuable/personal belongings can be stored in a locker (about 1m x 30cm x 30cm) next to your bed.

AMENITIES: there is shared bathroom and toilets (3 of each) which is always kept very clean. There is a laundry service ($8SNG/load) that is on offer too.

COMMON AREAS: there is a common area with couches, TV, books where you can relax after the day of walking around. There is also a dining room table with full kitchen utensils, tea and coffee. There is a fridge were you can store your food and drinks. To keep the hostel clean, once indoors, there is a no-shoe policy which means that all shoes needs to be kept outside in a box.

ROOMS: there is mixed dorm with 26 beds (bunkbeds) and two 6 bed dorms. Each bed has own bedlight and power plug (electric plug converter provided). For privacy, there is curtains that can be drawn on either side of your bed. There is a 9pm lights out policy in which the lights are switched off and the doors closed to each room which provided much needed quiet for those travellers who wanted to sleep early.

BONUS: fantastic high speed FREE wifi (also two computers for public use) and also FREE breakfast (basic fruit, bread, jam and butter, tea and coffee)

Overall, it was fantastic experience living in the hostel and it provided the perfect gateway for me to explore Singapore. The reception staff were extremely helpful in providing me tips and advice for places to travel and they also have special offered on tickets too.

Highly recommended!!

Me and my 2 friends had a very nice experience here. We we're greeted nicely by the inn keeper at that time. It's just like we've known each other for a long time. We suddenly felt home in this hostel and in singapore. We were treated like a family here, not as a guest. The location is perfect, 2 mins from nearest mrt station, and most importantly near the river. If you like to chill in the nice bar or restaurant alongside the river, this is the place for you. So river city inn its a highly recommended place to stay :)

Great location to a reasonable price. You get what you can ask from a hostel. Wifi, ac, light breakfast and a good bed. Friendly and helpful staff. Location is good and you won't find many options at this price in central Singapore.

We stayed here for six nights
very nice to live here
a clean, warm atmosphere, and quiet at night

Service was very friendly
we made ​​at home

Place strategic enough to make us not to bother if we want to travel

Close to Clarke Quay MRT, maybe it only takes about 5 minutes
For eating places can also be found in the Central Mall and there prices are very affordable

and we will definitely return to this place

Room Tip: If you are easily awakened, do not get near the door
