Reviewed 9 May 2012

Have been staying at the little red dot on two separate occasions now, and i had a great time throughout. The helpful staff made me feel welcome and appreciated. The facilities are good, though i have not visited other hostels in SG to have an adequate comparison. Sleep quality is somewhat diminished if you get a room facing busy Lavender Street, and the small blankets are not really helping, either :) ... Other than that, 5 mins to the next MRT and 2 mins to the awesome Lavender Food Square. 10 Minutes to the heart of Little India, a must-see for your stay in SG. Bikes are also available, sadly all of them were in urgent need of repair at the time of my arrival. If you want to have a good night out, or need advice on where to eat the best Murtabak or Chicken Rice, Johnathan is the go-to-guy.
My home in SG, i will definitely come again next year :)

Room Tip: Wifi is better if you stay downstairs. If you want a quiet night, choose a room that is not facing l...

The facilities are clean and sufficiently comfortable. I prefer the rooms on the second floor cos there are outlets everywhere and they get more light. There are computers you can use and u can also print and scan. The lightning in the rooms is not good, the bed sheets could be whiter :), and the blankets bigger and nicer. The staff are young and nice people, and Jonathan is the best. The staff will help you with everything you want to know, where the fun hangout places are, where to shop and where to get some good cheap food (the food court close by is great). It is at a convenient location close to the MRT (metro) station. It was fun meeting people from all over.

Stayed there for a bit less than two weeks, in total a great place to stay.

Rooms and bathroom are clean, and the price is very good for Singapore.
Free Wifi, Computers and Breakfast included. The AC is great so you can sleep fairly well at a hostel. Food court and Lavender MRT is very close too, and it's not far from the city.

Another extra to be mentioned is the X-Box for playing.
Jonathan, the receptionist, sleeps in the rooms too, creating more of a family atmosphere.
Staff in general is very friendly and doesn't mind helping you out with whatever you need.
The general atmosphere in the hostel is also very friendly and cozy, making you feel well.
There is also a lot of events with the staff, however I could not attend as I was busy with my own school.

Looking at what my other friends told me about hostels, this was a completely positive experience, mainly due to the helpful staff and good atmosphere in the hostel.

Will definitely come again.

Room Tip: Hard to tell, I didn't visit the other rooms. The one's upstairs are less noisy though as pe...

Stayed here one night, happy we changed to another hostel closeby. The facilities are nice but rooms are overcrowded and small. The AC was way too cold and the provided Blanket is way too small, didn't cover all body. We were woken up 4am by drunken guys trying to hit on my GF (staff is not responsible for this naturally, but still felt is was worth writing). Toilet is clean but small. For this price you can find better, yes it's Singapore but still, same money can give you a room with fewer people, better location and better breakfast.

We decided to stay in LRD based on the positive reviews we'd read here on Trip Advisor. Good news is, we were not disappointed. It's a cozy, relaxing place. The rooms and other facilities are clean and sufficiently comfortable. The rooms on the second floor, especially the ones facing the yard are the most quiet.There are computers connected to the Internet. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. The simple breakfast that is served in the common area next to the reception desk is a fun and memorable experience. It was our first time staying in a shared dorm when travelling abroad, and I'm glad we did so. The food court close-by is a great place to try the local food. It's close to an MRT station, but we took taxis to travel around as LRD was pretty close to most places we wanted to visit, and there was the three of us so we could share the taxi fares (which are not very cheap considering all the "surcharges" that they apply for all kinds of reasons!).
On the whole, the two nights we spent there were comfy and fun. I recommend LRD to those of you who are travelling/backpacking in groups and prefer to spend less on accommodation and more on enjoying the countless attractions in Singapore.

Room Tip: Don't forget to bring your own padlocks if you want to use the lockers in the room.
