Too noisy as the put me on the room facing main road, the noise insulation is suckxxxx Besides that, most of the thing that they claim that they will provide (universal plug converter, scanning services etc...) was being told by the staff as unavailable. The multi-purpose printer + scanner was right in front of my eyes, but when i ask to scan my passport, the staff with glasses just tell me that they don't have scanner, this really piss me off! They are unfriendly.


A good little hostel with cool "pod" style beds in the dorms. I quite liked it. Only downsides were the lack of A/C in a common area, and though it's not far from a metro station, it's not close to much else.




This was my second stay at LRD in the past year. I was placed in a capsule even though I had only booked the cheapest bed in a mixed dorm, and I absolutely loved it! Separate wifi network for each level. Hours for reception (8am-2am) problematic as I had an early flight and needed to leave by 7:30, but reception didn't reopen until 8. Since i wanted my $20 key deposit back I had to just get it before going to bed and leave my valuables unsecured all night. There should be a better system.


This hostel is capsul type not dorm type as per advertise. I booked for one day only.


We booked a dorm room but were upgraded to a sleeping pod. The pod was downstairs in a dark room. It was okay, but there was a smell of stinky shoes/feet, especially when you entered the room. Staff didn't seem particularly interested, but we're friendly enough when asked for something. Not to bad, but nothing great either. Good thing = close to lavender food court which is amazing!


Very good location and far price for Singapore!


It was surprising and interesting to stay in a capsule, the open air terrace and the backpacking vibe is great. But since there are no doors and about 8 lockers for dozens of beds security seems a bit of an issue (though I must say that nothing happened to me). There are also many places closer to MRT for cheaper or same price in SG


I enjoy my stay at Little Red Dot Hostel. The staffs are very helpful. For the facilities, i think i get what i've paid. don't ask too much. but overall ok.

Staff were great and helpful. The sleeping pods were very warm and stuffy (no moving air inside them at all).


Front door to go in the hostel not obvious, i wan thought it's had been shutdown @@


Decent hostel within walking distance to MRT & Little India. Pretty average for the money you pay but that's Singapore. Staff were extremely helpful & kind. My only issue was their policy on children. Our 8 bed dorm consisted of us plus a family of 5 and their 2 toddlers who treated it like their own private room. Luckily the staff were kind enough to move us to another room after I complained about the lack of sleep I'd gotten from all the crying and carrying on from the kids the night before.


Dirty. Never clean the room and changed the bedsheet daily. Never swept the floor nor wipe the table (smoking area) although Joseph knows that the table was dirty.
