Nice and good located hostel in the heart of Singapore. Clean and ordinary dorms and bathrooms. Nevertheless, Singapore is an expensive place to stay.

Decent enough hostel, although did not appreciate being told that I'll, 'recieve an email from hostelworld asking for a review' and if I liked the hostel then I should fill out the survey, and if I didn't then can I please just ignore the email.

What a great stay at River City Inn! I highly recommend this hostel to anyone travelling to Singapore. The location is very convenient (close to MRT, attractions, Sentosa) and the atmosphere will make you will at home right away. The staff is friendly and helpful, especially Cindy. All in all, a great experience, thank you very much for excellent stay.

Unfortunately the staff (partly) did not show much service orientation and was unfriendly in the mornings. The receptionist was very kind and friendly. WLAN worked well, but how could they occupy one out of three showers for the cleaning equiptment? Anyway, good location, safe and very clean!

I had a great time in this perfectly located and clean hostel with the very friendly staff. With the good atmosphere it was easy to meet other travellers to explore the city together. If I go back to Singapore I will definitively stay there again.

This hostel is clean and in a great location. Clarke Quay is a block away, as is the MRT which connects all over the city. The air conditioning in the rooms works great and the facilities are pretty good. That said, the staff is not friendly at all and there is absolutely no atmosphere/vibe. If you want a quiet night in this may be a good option, but if you're looking to meet fellow travelers or feel comfortable in the common room stay elsewhere. They make you feel like an uninvited guest.

good location, kind staff, decent breakfast! but it's uncomfortable that hostel has no elevator and shower room is unisex.

The facilities were clean and well maintained, but the vibe of the hostel is a little off. It was very quiet, with minimal interaction between guests. The staff wasn't always the friendliest.

The hostel is on the third floor of a building, so you may wonder where you are going when you're heading up the stairs. But the staff are very welcoming when you arrive. It's quiet and clean. It has a homely vibe, as it's quite small being on one floor.

Everything is very very good except personnel. Unfortunately girls on the receprion were unfriendly, did not look to be helpful. Location is good - easy to find from MRT (about 40-50 mins to the airport by MRT). we did not use public transport for exploring the city, because everything was rather close. 7\11 in front of the hostel.

This is a great option in Singapore. The 6 bed dorm is very nice and the air con on at night does wonders against the stuffy Singapore heat. The staff are helpful. It's in a great location close to everything. One suggestion would be to offer some cereal with the breakfast. Other than that, all good.

Very friendly staff greeted us as we arrived, and we immediately felt at home. We stayed in the 24 bed dorm and it was actually comfortable for such a large amount of people. Breakfast included was simple but its nice to have access to a fridge and clean drinking water all the time. Nice relaxing place to stay in Singapore for a few days

It was a nice hostel with lots of communal space but lacked any atmousphere, despite lots of facilities, lights out and hushed voices after 11pm. Also no shoes in the hostel which was quite strange. No eating in rooms.

Owner Comment (Hide)
It is stated clearly in the terms and conditions of booking that no footwear is allowed in the hostel(except in the toilets) in order to upkeep cleanliness. Food and drinks in the rooms will attract insects and pest in humid and tropical Singapore. Hence, for the comfort of all guests and to upkeep the cleanliness of the hostel, no food and drinks are allowed in the dorms. Food and drinks may be consumed in the common area/dining area.

Good location where most of the staff are nice and helpful, reasonable price to have a place closed to MRT.
