Great place, extremely clean, very comfy. staff is great. location is perfect, 2 blocks from the train taking you from the airport, and 2 blocks from the Quay, a wonderful area by night, full of bars and restaurants next to the river. The hostel has a very big dorm, i think they have in the big room more than 20 beds. then has a few rooms, 2 or 3, with less beds. the only thing i didn't found comfortable is that the smaller rooms have no windows. even though, the are equiped with air conditioning. The internets works perfectly and hostel has 2 computers.

It is a very clean inn with friendly receptionists. They are helpful and I like the mix dorm best. I was paid the difference when I opted for a cheaper dorm although I had paid for a higher-priced dorm earlier on.

No complaints about the hostel at all, sometimes not that easy to sleep in the big dorm, but this is not the hostels fault, just depends who's staying there. Always very clean, and staff lovely - very helpful and friendly.

The owners, Jackie and Nicola, are very nice and friendly.

The place is very clean and comfortable and free wifi. It is on the great location at the center of the city. We can walk within 3 minutes to Clark Quay MRT Station or river side or Central mall.

I stayed there for two night on May 28 till May 30, 2011. It was a really great time. The owners, Jackie and Nicola, are nice. The place is perfectly located at the great point of the city that you can take walk to see Singapore river side. You can also take 2 minutes walk to Clarke Quay MRT station, or to have dinner at Boat Quay. The place is very clean, I like its clean toilet indeed. I didn't feel any dirt or bad-smell from the bed, blanket, and pillow. For those reason, it would doubtless to rate this place as EXCELLENT for backpackers.

This is my first time staying in a hostel. I was expecting nothing more than mere accommodation but I got much more than that! I met great people and had lots of interesting conversations with them. The hosts are extremely friendly and respond to your requests before you can blink. This is a very new hostel that is extremely well maintained and incredibly clean and comfortable. It feels like home. The location is unbelievably good and is close to everything that you can imagine! I would definitely recommend River City Inn! Cheers! Happy Travels!
