“Excellent stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2012

Had a lovely stay at Riverside Inn. The hostel is VERY clean (this includes showers and toilets, which don't always get the same attention at other hostels) and the staff are always very happy, smiley and helpful. The hostel is in a great location... opposite the Central Mall, close to the river with lots of restaurants, bars and cafes and there is an easy shuttle to and from the hostel (cost us $9 each) which takes about half an hour.

Room Tip: We were in a 6-bed dorm with no windows, but there is AC and a fan so the room is always cool.

Am so satisfied and grateful that I made the right choice for choosing this hostel as this is my first time staying in a backpackers hostel. The location is strategic as it takes 5 minutes of walking to the nearest MRT and also centralized as we can actually walk to certain places (maps are provided) since the basic things/places we want to get/visit are near by. Breakfast is filling, the environment is still nice and cozy even though there are many travelers staying here which we couldn't avoid some little noises especially at night. Still, it is adaptable. Many thanks to Clara, Jackie, Nicholas and Aisha for being helpful. Really enjoyed for the past 4 days of staying. Totally recommended and I shall come back again for my next trip! :)

Totally satisfied with everything. Such less price with the 5-star service. Thx to Clara and Nicholas who are always being helpful since my day 1 arriving at the hostel. The location is perfect, close to Clarke Quay subway station, the central shopping centre and some good restaurants you can find nearby. Totally recommended!

Room Tip: Whatever room you choose, yeapppp... It's excellent

The hotel is conveniently located, 3 minutes on foot from Clarke Quay station (NS5). This is a considerable time-saver when getting around to explore the city. I do not regret this choice.
I loved the family atmosphere and it is a nice place to meet fellow travellers from many parts of the world.
Staff is very friendly and supportive and the hotel is quite clean... just like the rest of the city.
The only negative point is that the air-conditioning in the dorms makes the air rather chilly and, of course, it is a dorm, so you have to be able to cope with the ones who snore or get in late at night and make some noise.
Anyway, I would definitely recommend it. And the next time I travel to Singapore I will come back to the same place for sure.

Room Tip: If you are sensitive to noise (some people snore) choose a smaller dorm, to minimise the probability...

Stayed one night and it was perfect for my needs. Close to MRT, rooms were cool and bathrooms clean. Definitely recommend this hostel to anyone travelling to Singapore!

Staff are very welcoming and the breakfast is sufficient and is available till midday which is awesome for a hostel.
