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...

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...

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!

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...

just exceptionnal, never seen this quality after one year of travelling. Even too clean to my point of view... Where's the dirt?! The only difference between this place and the hotel is that you're sleeping with quite a few people, for the rest it's higher quality than the standard of guesthouse/backpacker.
