It is probably the cheapest accomodaton in Singapore, but I really enjoyed it. Location is excellent - literally two minutes to the metro station. Room is small and very simple, but in mine there was AC and a very strong wifi. I did not have any problems with sleep. In the common area (sort of living room) you can meet... More

Although this place is rather expensive (if you have been staying in rooms for £7 on your travels), Ali is very accommodating. On our arrival he helped us plan our trips to the zoo, botanical gardens, Clark quey, Chinatown and Orchard road. Situated in Little India and a 2 min walk to the MRT, the homestay is in a good...

It's not the best place in Singapore (quite noisy and rooms very small), but as Ali says "it's simple". Not expensive (we paid 40 usd for Chinese New Year Eve), breakfast is OK, coffee and tea whenver you want, wifi OK, and localisation perfect (in the middle of Little India, 1 min away from subway station Farrer Park). Good value... More

Ali's Nest isn't cheap by backpacking standards but it's definitely the best deal in Singapore! Be advised that the prices on the website are out of date -- we paid 38 SD for a double private room with shared bath. Ali is friendly and is always around to chat or help you. There's a breakfast of toast/jam/butter and free tea/coffee... More

After years of trying different hostels and small hotels, all overpriced, I finally came across Ali's Nest in Farrer Park. You can get a dorm room here for super cheap or a decent size single room for much much cheaper than you'll get anywhere else in Singapore. Outstanding value for money along with a very friendly owner and a good... More

Nice guy and friendly atmosphere. If you choose to stay there because of a tight budget, try to avoid the rooms under the roof, especially during the rainy season..The service, sleep quality and cleanliness are average.

I love trip advisor - my wife and I stayed at Ali's in 1995 for new years eve, really pleased it is still going after all these years. I remember we had a big party and we were chalked around on the floor. Good for you Ali, great to see you still operating. I may pop by next week as... More

Ali's Nest was quite an experience...Firstly we got the smallest double room that could possibly exist (be warned if he takes you to the third floor and last room!!!!), with a bunk bed an air-con and a small shelf all cramped into 6 square meter. Secondly it was just under the roof and as soon as it rained it was... More

Extremely good location in Little India, right next to the MRT station (Farrer Park) from where you can get anywhere in the city very quickly. The guesthouse is clean and homely with great wifi, kitchen area and bathrooms kept clean. The fan room we stayed in was small but the bed was very comfortable. Please be aware it's $40 per... More
