Really enjoyed our stay here for 4 nights. Staff were extremely helpful with directions and places to eat. Cleanliness was of a high standard and facilities great with a nice breakfast provided daily. Would stay here again.

We stayed at River City Inn for two nights. Our plane arrived after last check-in time but the staff were very flexible and let us in anyway after we sent them an email about our plane.

The place is really cosy and has a great atmosphere! Also, it is very clean everywhere which obvious is a huge plus. We thought the idea of not wearing shoes inside is really good which also makes it much more home like.

Best recommendations from us! Would without a doubt stay there again when going to Singapore.

Clean and friendly environment. Very close to Clarke/Boat Quay which has alot of night clubs, bars and restaurants. Its very close to the MRT station which is very convenient. Cindy and Jasmine are the coolest host I've ever met. Enjoy your stay!

Dorm rooms, communal areas and bathrooms were all pleasant. Beds were comfy, each has a plug socket and a light and individual lockers were also available in the room.
Communal area offered a TV, games consoles and sofas which was good for socialising in. However the two computers were often unavailable due to staff using them for personal recreation, and made no effort to move even when there was guest demand for the computers.
Bathroom adequate. Provides soap and shower gel. Breakfast options of bananas and toast and selection of hot drinks or water.
I received an email following my stay asking me to give river city inn an 100% rating on tripadvisor, which, after the service I received I felt was rather cheeky, particularly as during my stay I the staff were disinterested, unhelpful and unwelcoming.
