“The place to stay in Singapore”
Reviewed 4 August 2013

Great Location, close to lavender metro station, bus stations, food courts and little india!
Really good free breakfast, toast, cereal, tea and coffee. Good free wifi. My favorite common area I have seen in a while brings the whole hostel together. Really good air conditioned rooms that kept the rooms cool all through the night despite the really hot and humid weather on the other side of the door. Highly recommend. Only little and very little annoyance was that the check in is at 3pm which is quite late in the day if you have just flown in and want a bed badly. Staff were friendly and helpful.

On the street outside Little Red Dot, there has now opened more than a half-dozen copy-cat hostels of varying quality. But there can only be one winner and Little Red Dot is defenitely the unopposed regent of the throne. This place has charm, and is the best place to stay in Singapore (unless you have enough $$$ for the Raffles, but even that would be extremely dull in comparison to this place). What makes the biggest difference in this hostel is the lovely staff. The ones who are of Singapore-origin, were the best people I've ever met in a hostel. And after travelled 60+ countries, I know what I am talking about.

Do try the Lavender eating centre while here. Everyone are talking about the bigger ones, like Maxwells in China Town, but this one is just as good if not better and more genuine.

Walking distance to bus station and located near little india. And if its not too hot of a day, one can easily stroll down to the centre/bay if not in a hurry. Or take the metro a couple stops. So dont look further, book your bed at Little Red Dot.

And Jonathan, thanks for a memorable stay in Singapore.

Little Red Dot is absolutely the best place to stay in singapore. The staff is great, i've never met such nice people anywhere in the world. Soso aka "Night Guy" always available and willing to help, Desmond aka "The Guide" who knows everything about Singapore, ask him anything and he will knows. Jonathan aka "The Man", the best person I met in Singapore during my long stay, always helpful, kind, friendly, inside and outside the hostel. If you want a perfect holiday in Singapore, try this place. You
won't go anywhere else after this experience.

I really like staying at the Little Red Dot Hostel in Lavender. The staff is very friendly and helpful, andstay the same from visit to visit. They always remember you if you have stayed there before! Jonathan runs great walking tours ( see Walks of our Lives) from Red Dot, and they are FREE, with just a small charge to cover food costs. He has just started a Gourmet Safari tour on Wed nights, which is great. Introduces you to all the classic dishes of Singapore. The location is handy for bus and train. There is an Olympic pool complex nearby, Jalan Besar SPorts Arena, which can be used for $1 and there is a great new pie and coffee place around the corner, as well as many yummy local restos serving both Indian and Chinese food. Little India is a 10 minute walk away.

Room Tip: If you are staying downstairs in the pod beds, Ask for the shared dorm, the female-only dorm is near...

This is probably one of the cheapest hostels in Singapur. The rooms are ok, clean and with aircon. Well located as well and the breakfast is buffet although the quality of the food is not exceptional, but for the price is really good. It´s a good option stay here.
