Stayed at River One Residence couple of times & they are always our choice of hostel as we feel very much at ease & welcome during our stay. The whole set up is very homely & fuss-free. Clean, safe, comfortable, convenient & affordable- everything checked in the backpacker/ holiday maker's wish list.
