This place is clean, yes. But staying here is more about doing everything right, regardless of whether you a happy camper or not. They have lots of information about the local sights and maps and location is good. However, I wasn't very happy with the attitude of the male staff member. He actually went into the room and removed my...

The malaysia girl is hard working and keeps all the public areas clean & tidy. Hostel is  just 5 min walk to Clarke Quay MRT. It is convenient to go Chinatown & Sentosa. WIFI & computer are good. It will be good to put an air purifier, a small table & rubbish trash in the room.

Really great location right by Clarke Quay MRT station. Very clean rooms and bathrooms. Air con at night in the rooms is very cold. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Not a fantastic atmosphere for meeting people but very quiet.

Staff are kindly! Environment is good(beds, shower rooms, common room and so forth.) The Breakfast they serve is simple but good. No shoes inside the hostel makes it clean, love it. I'll book this hostel if I travel again.

We stayed for two nights in the 14 bed room and it was perfectly fine. Sure it allways depends on who you are sharing the room with but in our case everyone was polite and considerate. Breakfast consisted out of toast, jam, little cakes, peanut butter, etc. Allways free water and Wi-Fi. For Singapore the best choice for a small...

I stayed in Singapore for 7 nights. My first three nights were in another backpacker's inn. The rest were spent in Rivercity Inn. I can't help but to compare Rivercity and the other inn I've been to. The front desk officer (Cindy) made it more easier for me to be acquainted with the place. Going up to rivercity on the...
