This hostel is exceptionally clean. The owner can be a little too pedantic at times and we found that he'd moved/bagged up some of our things because he doesn't like shoes in the hostel. The atmosphere in the hostel was good and the communal area was always full of people. The location was also very good right next to Clarke quay and less than a 5 minute walk to a mrt station. Overall we enjoyed our stay.

Clean, quiet hostel. Showers and toilets are shared gender cubicles which were clean and great shower heads! Dorms were clean with good size locker provided. Own lamp and power adaptor for each bed. Staff were friendly and helpful when need be. Breakfast was bread and bananas with jam or Nutella - this could have been improved to make better value for money. Other than that had a good stay at the river city inn.

Convenient location, and pretty clean. 3 showers and 3 toilets - the shower water gets cold when all 3 showers are in use. You're allowed to borrow an umbrella when it rains. Breakfast is only toast with nutella/jam/pb. Overall, I had a good time at this hostel and met very lovely people.

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 liked this hostel and felt very safe here. The breakfast was good but you have to get in quick if you want a banana with your toast! Good facilities- plenty of showers and a decent kitchen with computers at the side. Nice cosy common area, although guests didn't really mix. The only downside was that not all the staff were attentive to guests. One sat on their phone and I felt like a nuisance asking a few questions. Also, I do not appreciate being told to give 100% for a hostel or not bother.

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.
