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.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. It was an okay stay, not much of a social hostel. Fantastic location, less then 20 minute walk to the gardens by the bay and marina bay. The rooms could use an upgrade, but the staff kept the place (especially the floors) quite clean. It is located on the 4th floor of an apartment complex, so be prepared for some stairs. Overall, the River City Inn was a place to just have a roof over our heads but is definitely a budget accommodation.

Staff are terrible at helping, wouldn’t let us leave the air-con in the communal area beyond 9pm. Only three showers and it’s more of a long term living area for people who are staying there and working in the country. The mattress are super thin, beds are small and there’s no where safe to leave your valuables so you have to carry them wherever you go. Also, it’s definitely not a hostel vibe and would never recommend the place to anyone.
