@ Little Red Dot
Reviewed 1 April 2012

We had a great time staying here, we meet some great people there and the layout off the hostels makes in easy to interact with other people.

The rooms were clean and the bedding was clean too. The bathroom were kept clean and had hot running water all the day long.

The staff were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.

Free beakfast and wifi.

It's my first time staying in a hostel, at first I'm afraid but since I'm with my mom, It's not that bad to give it a try.

Little Red Dot's location, security, and cleanliness is good and I love their free breakfast! I just had a problem with their wifi, I can't connect thru my laptop but thru my iphone, I can. Some of the guests experience the same.

Also, they're turning off the air-conditioner from 12noon to 7:00pm. So don't stay in the hostel between those hours.

In terms of their staff, I don't like Jonathan. In some of the reviews, the guests say that Jonathan is the good guy. Yes he is, to those people who gives him alcohol drinks! Every night he's drunk! He initiates noise especially at night! Some of the guests don't like him because of his habit. He's arrogant to guests whom he thinks he can't get a drink! I really want to commend SUSU... one of the hostel's staff. He's the real good guy! He doesn't drink and he always clean the hostel. Unlike Jonathan who always drink alcohol and I have never seen him cleaning the hostel! Geeeezz!!! Anyway, I really like Susu, he's accommodating and an honest guy! :)

TIP: Don't go with the map that Little Red Dot Hostel's will provide when they send an email to you for booking confirmation. It's inconvenient to walk at the back area of the place especially at night. I think it's not secure to walk there. Just do this: when you're taking the MRT, as you exit the terminal (Lavender Station), turn left then up to the escalator. Turn left again, go straight to the main road, then turn left again go straight and you'll pass by Fragrance Hostel then Hotel 81, from there, I think just a 5-minute walk, you'll see the Little Red Dot! :)

Room Tip: No Wifi access in the rooms at the second floor, so don't choose those rooms if you really need...

My stay at the Little Red Dot was fantastic. Jonathan and the rest of the staff are extremely helpful at finding things to do for the guests and even organizing tours for the guests. The hostel itself is incredibly clean and well kept, though the rooms themselves can feel extremely crowded. The location of the hostel, however is excellent and provides for easy access to the MRT station and therefore the rest of Singapore. Highly recommended.

Little Red Dot was such a great introduction to Singapore! Jonathan befriended us almost immediately and there is a real sense of community there. It is very casual but in a good way, and you really feel at home right away. Little India close by was fun - a real cultural experience and the Lavendar food court down the road was patronised by us many times. All in all it was a good stay with lovely people and comfortable beds. Missing that place already!

I've been travelling for over a month now and this was one of the best places I stayed at. Clean rooms and enough space with lockers. Bathrooms are also very clean and have hot water. It's near Little India and close to the MRT station and a big foodcourt.
There is a common room where you can meet a lot of people and get to know the staff better. They are all very friendly and helpfull, but I loved Jonathan the most. He's a great guy and made my stay unforgettable.
I recommend this to everybody and hope to get back there one day!

Very nice and familiar hostel. Room and facilities were clean and with aircondition. Wifi for free and just 5 Minutes to MRT station. 200 m away there is a big food court with very good and cheap asian food.
Staff was friendly as well.
Furthermore i forgot my drivers lisence at the hostel and they sent it back to Germany for free!
