    Was struggling to find somewhere that could be good value in Singapore, but this place was definitely it. Dorm rooms are quite open, but still comfortable, good AC and fans turned on throughout the day. Bed was comfortable, locker storage wasn’t an issue either. Lounge area and bathroom facilities were always kept very clean, staff were really polite and helpful. Breakfast was until 12 which is great, toast, banana and hot drinks, can’t ask for much more.

    Perfect location between the Clarke Quay nightlife and Chinatown, making tube journeys anywhere an easy task. Used for 2 nights, staff were friendly and the facilities were more than sufficient for the price.

    Nice social place where you can easily meet people, especially at breakfast. Would recommend for anyone traveling solo. Hot showers and they provide a hair drier! Friendly staff. Bed a bit uncomfortable sadly but the room was a nice temperature to sleep (very temperate). When checking in make sure you get a blanket before 11pm, as mine wasn’t ready when I arrived and then I was out late so didn’t have one. Luckily another guest had a sleeping bag they could use instead so gave me their blanket.

    Really good value for money, I love they included the breakfast! Only thing that was a bit annoying to me is that they charged before my stay, so I just saw a charge in my card not knowing what was this for, making me call my bank to clarify the charge. If they contact to ask your check in time, they can put a reminder that anytime before stay they will charge for it. I was not planning to put this charge into this card. Thanks!

    River City Inn is a solid hostel. It's definitely on the more quiet side of the ones I've been to in the region. The best place to meet people is in the common area. The facilities are good and they do a good job of trying to keep the hostel clean. The light breakfast, tea, and coffee is a nice touch and useful if you want to get up and go.

    Good place to stay for value for money, needed some more life within the hostel, but was a good hostel all round. Good for a chill place

    We thoroughly enjoyed our time here. The receptionist was so welcoming and helpful although the owner did not have the same warming feeling. Really great location for accessing the city. The 14 and 10 bed dorm are separated by a curtain so it’s more like a 24 bed dorm. The security was good to get in and out of the building. There was only 3 toilets and 3 showers for all the guests which at times wasn’t great. Made lots of friends through the social areas. Good free breakfast and constant coffee

    We were packed into a six-bed dorm without air conditioning. The room was tiny and realistically should hold four beds maximum. I could barely move when another person was out of their bunk. Although the room had an air conditioning unit, it was inoperative. The very fact a fan has been bolted to the wall leaves me to assume the air conditioning unit is simply for show. I was absolutely boiling and slept about two hours.
