Great party and great company! thank you for organizing it. The staff were attentive and generous - a nice way to make people on the road and away from home feel a shared festive spirit and sense of family.

It's a superb little hostel. Choose a capsule for extra $5 its great having that little bit of privacy. I am a female traveling alone and was made to feel super welcome on arrival. Staff are genuinely lovely and what's best is its nice and laid back and easy going. Spotlessly Clean. good hot showers. Tea and toast for breakfast. A games console. Wouldn't stay anywhere else if I come back to Singapore. :-)

The Little Red Dot is located really close go the metro and bus station, kn a central afea of the city.
The beds/capsjles are really good, you can stay with lights on without disturb anyone else.
The staff is super friendly and helpfull. They organize a city tour for free that is funniest city in the town.
Whenever I go back to Singapore, I will stay at the TLRD.

The hostel is located close to both little India where u can get cheap food n entertainment as well as the met which you can get easy access just a couple of stops to the likes of city hall, raffles hotel and also marina bay . . . So location was good.
Staff were friendly and helpful n inviting.
I would agree there are few toilets & showers but they were nearly always free.
A bonus is the wifi in all areas to,
I stayed in a pod these were the size of a single bed, but you got a locker and to secure your valuables these were good for the money and I thought that noise would b bad but they were quite private with a blind to separate u from the others staying there.

Not far from the train station and cheap food. The staff were helpful and the place was clean enough. Not sure there were enough bathroom facilities. Seemed to be one of the better value options for those on a budget in Singapore. The walls were paper-thin, and the dorm we stayed in was right next to the communal area upstairs, so we didn't get much sleep. Stayed early Dec 2012 in an 8 bed dorm with a/c for 18USD per night for 3 nights, with breakfast included.

It was my first time living in a hostel. I enjoyed staying here a lot. I had a capsule bed for a week. The only small problem i had at first was that the beds are plastic, which made a crackling sound at touch. I felt a lot of guilt moving around because sound travels so easily in the capsule room. There is air con in the rooms and only a small blanket is provided. For me it was enough but i'm small. Free internet is pretty speedy. clean showers. Overall atmosphere was really nice. & I'm so glad I met Desmond there who runs Walks of Our Lives. Everyone should sign up for his tours. Met a lot of amazing friends on that tour.
Short 5-10 minute walk to Lavender station (few stops away from the city center), which I recommend taking a different route to each day, I came across a lot of quite interesting cafes & shops along the way. Never know what you might find.

Room Tip: Dorm beds are real beds. Capsule has a little more privacy, but plastic crackling beds.

My friends and I stayed at Little Red Dot for our Singapore trip and we stayed at the dorm type room. Rooms have airconditioning and bunk beds for the dorm type. Bath is communal so you have to wake up early if you don't want to wait. Free WIFI at the lobby with plenty of desktop computers. They also have an XBox for you to pass the time, though we didn't use it because we were really tired from all the walking around Singapore. They also serve breakfast but we didn't get to have some because we were already leaving for Kuala Lumpur the next day.

We chose Little Red Dot because it's near Lavander Stop and near the bus station going to Kuala Lumpur (our next stop for the trip) The bus stop is just across Little Red Dot and you can purchase tickets there. It's not really a 5 minute walk from Lavender more of like 10-15 minutes and you have to go around a couple of establishments to find it. Little Red Dot is along the main road.

Over all a great place to stay for backpackers and couples, not too much a great idea for families that want privacy and little kids. Place is clean and transportation is easy. Best place to stay if you want to save on accommodations but still see the city.
