Property Description

River City Inn is located in the heart of the Singapore city, less than 3 minutes walk away from the Singapore River, and 5 minutes walk away from a MRT (tube/metro) train station.

River City Inn is a family-owned and operated hostel. As travellers ourselves, we know that affordability should never compromise hospitality. Everything you need to provide a comfortable stay are available: Free Wi-Fi, Clean Sheets, Air-Conditioning, Discounted attraction tickets and more!

But at River City Inn, we aim to offer something more. After you have explored the winding streets of Singapore, experienced the different cultures, delighted your taste buds and worn your shoes under the sweltering heat, we want to welcome you back. We want to offer you a place to unwind, write your journal, talk to other travelers and share stories. We aim not only to provide a bed for the night, but a space for the exchange of ideas, inspirations, personal reflections and growth. Because that is what traveling is about.

• All prices include free WiFi, lockers (with locks), clean toilets, bathrooms, clean linen and clean rooms.

• Late check-in charges are as follows:

    Great stay in Singapore. My shared room was really clean, the beds were comfortable and even had a foam topper. The lady on reception was really helpful, she printed out my documents & always greeted me & told me to have a good day. Free refillable water and perfect location for the MRT. Will definitely stay here if i am in Singapore again.

    I would rate the overall stay in this hostel as excellent. The staff were extremely welcoming and helpful, the rooms were very clean and well-presented on arrival. The facilities offered a great amount; kitchen, lounge area, laundry, showers and toilets that were all kept organised and clean. The hostel was fairly quiet and had more of a nice chilled out vibe compared to most hostels I’ve stayed at which was nice.

    No chance finding a better location for this price in Singapore. Everything was clean and save. Will definitely stay again next time I travel through Singapore.

    Good location, comfy beds and good showers. We were here over new year and there wasn’t much of an atmosphere, everyone just kind of did their own thing. Breakfast was basic toast but there is a fridge you can use so could always buy your own food. One of the ladies was super helpful with sorting out our tickets for universal and the aquarium! Very good location. Good WiFi

    Great location, super easy to get place to place. Not much privacy however and if you have a lot of luggage be aware that there are 3 flights of stairs.

    This hostel was in an awesome spot but far out it was one of the worst hostels I have ever stayed in. The breakfast one morning was late and it had the worst atmosphere. Bunks have no privacy and there are 3 showers for the whole hostel. Save yourself the trouble and book a different hostel.

    The two employees here, especially the Asian one, was extremely unfriendly and rude. Also, there only AC turned on at night so if you want it cold during the day, you’re out of luck. Which is terrible considering it’s hot as hell in Singapore.

    Avoid this place. I dont even know where to start. You have to walk up four stories to access this hell hole. The staff working here are completely rude, unhelpful and unfriendly. This not a hostel for backpackers or travelers instead it is full of migrant workers who live in the dorms. The price of the room is absolutely extortionate for the quality of the place. The dorm is completely cramped and overcrowded. With old mattress and piles of clothes covering the floor.
