Really enjoyed my stay here, nice clean hostel with roof terrace, enjoyed the free fruit and cake provided and good air conditioned rooms. Great location, in the centre of town but not too noisy. Staff were helpful too. Would have been nice if it was a bit more social, not many opportunities to hang out with other guests.

Positives - Stayed in 26 bed bunk room - reasonable space with locker facilities! Really helpful staff who are friendly and welcoming! Rooms and shower/toilet facilities very clean! Great facilities in common spaces. Well located near Clarke Quay station. Negatives - Wi-Fi very slow at all times. Advertised as breakfast included but this is very basic, I went out for breakfast whilst staying here. Overall very good.

River City Inn is at the top (4th floor) of a building without an elevator. They make you take your shoes off and store them outside in cubbies (which are filled with mothballs, leaving a stench), however this adds to the cleanliness of the hostel. The desk staff is friendly and you need a key card to enter (great security!). Only bad thing is that you can't control the aircon yourself, the staff does it. The hostel is clean, well-located and I recommend it.

I've been to several hostels in many countries. I have to say this is the best so far.

Near to Metro Station - clean - beds have their own single lights and the lower beds have a curtain!

Good location. Wifi good. Showers good. Smells like moth balls and chemicals. My bed was a cot added to the end of the room, not ideal.

The hostel location is good, very close to subway and shopping mall. The staffs are friendly and helpful. The toilet is clean, no smell. Anyway, the weather at the lobby area is a little hot due to saving energy concern. It would be great if the hostel can turn on the air condition at the lobby area all day :P

Thank you for your feedback. Currently, the air conditioning is turned on during the day in the living room for 12 consecutive hours non-stop. In the evenings, the air conditioning in the rooms are turned on for 14 consecutive hours through the night. When the weather is warmer, we do keep the air conditioning on a little longer. Do give our staff feedback should you require the rooms or living area to be cooled and we will gladly assist you accordingly.

River Inn is located in a very good location, very close to Clark Quay MRT and China Town so it's very easy to get around. The shared bathrooms and toilets are pretty clean. The locker, curtains, and personal light above the bed can make things more private.

Staying at River City Inn is the best decision I made during my trip to Singapore. I met interesting people and joined them to explore the city. The hostel is cozy and petite (in a good way). It's located steps away from MRT station and delicious food. Gained few kgs there hahaha. Definitely will go back!

This is a great hostel. One recommendation would be to leave the air conditioning on longer considering the heat in SIngapore. It is only switched on in the evening and then promptly turned off around 9am.
