“Home away from home”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 December 2016

River City Inn is very comfortable and relaxing, and is basically like another home. The only thing it lacks is it doesn't really have a huge social space and lacks the hostel atmosphere, but I really enjoyed staying here. The place is clean, and the staff are very helpful and lovely! The rooms are good to. BUT it is up 4 flights of stairs, so if you are that silly traveller that brings a suitcase into a hostel (aka me) , you've been warned!

Location is the best, rooms are clean, staffs are really friendly and helpful.
The best thing abt this hostel is the dinning room where you can find a bookshelf, a guitar and an ukulele, which makes me feel like home whenever I'm there :)
This was my 2nd stay and surely I will come back.

Went here with 3 friends in November 2016. Staff is very friendly, hostel is clean and small. Good toilets and showers (with shampoo and soap). No towels provider, so do not forget to bring your own. Breakfast is really simple, just white toast. The location is very good, you can walk towards the water for a great view. MRT stations nearby. Good place to stay for the weekend!

Right from the entrance, you are warmly greeted. The place is so well-maintained and so clean, partly because every guest plays their part not to wear shoes into the hostel. You only need to pay for what you use, such as towels and laundry. Breakfast is included, for such a budget price. Wifi is also included free. I highly recommend making a reservation directly with them instead of going through booking websites. Staff are very friendly, especially the lady at the reception. There are so many brochures to use as guide around the city. The computer terminals are free to use, which I use to find out about locations to visit.

My stay from the beginning till the end, has been a very very positive experience. Budget price for almost 5-star hotel experience. Remember to book directly from them instead of booking websites.
