Liked: Very clean facilities, excellent location 2 minutes from the metro, but walking distance to most of the major sites and areas of the city.

Disliked: The staff seemed fairly disengaged at times (never unfriendly just not as friendly as in other hostels). The shared living area was fairly small for the number of beds which meant there was often nowhere to sit.

Liked: Really enjoyed my stay here. The place is very clean and tidy. Good powerful showers, comfy beds with good sized locker to store your valuables. The staff are warm, friendly and helpful. Super fast WIFI in every room. Aircon made getting to sleep much easier. Good Breakfast included in the price. The location is perfect, all the big attractions are within walking distance and the MRT station is 2mins away which made finding to hostel very easy even for me! They also allowed me to leave my luggage at the hostel after I had checked out as my flight was not until later that evening which was really helpful. If you need a good place to stay you can't go wrong with the River City Inn.

Liked: Located right by Clarke Quay, easy to get to, staff speaks English and is easy to communicate with. The rooms are clean and the WiFi is good. Air conditioning in the dorm room was good. They have universal adapters for your electronics in case you forget or lose yours like I did.

Disliked: The common room is quite hot and there's no air conditioning running at night in this space, but there is a fan.
