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...

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...

I spent 10 days at River City Inn. Although I was irritated by the uni-sex showers and toilets at first, I discovered that they were very well maintained and cleaned daily. Staff is very friendly, breakfast (toast, butter, peanut butter, nutella, tea, coffee) is served until 12am, every bed as a little curtain which covers half your bedside and gives...

Loved this place and would most definitely stay again. It was super clean and I liked the fact that the dorms had little curtains on the lower bunks so you could have a bit of privacy. The kitchen facilities were good - you could get water/coffee/tea all day and there was appliances (although we didn't use them). Breakfast was basic...
