Howard, who runs this hostel, makes you feel right at home when you arrive. He tries to organise a daily trip to the restaurant with all of the guests of the hostel. The breakfast is quite minimal and the quality of the bunks average (holes in the sheets for ex.), but it is made up by the many new faces... More

If you are after a well priced, comfortable and welcoming hostel in Melaka then this is the one. Ringo's has good security with entry only for those with a key and you will have buzz to get in on arrival. There is a free breakfast of toast and jam, not an amazing choice but sets you up nicely for the... More

I've stayed here a couple of times. The first time was only meant to be two nights and ended up staying two weeks. Melaka and Ringo's are a great fit for the traveler with a lot of time and in need of a place to chill out. I've made so many friends at this place because its so welcoming. The... More

Ringos is hostel type accomodation, run by the lovely Howard! Accomodation is basic but the place has a relaxed, homely feel to it. Great rooftop terrace. Howard is a wonderful host, introduces all of his guests to each other, is mad on cycling and takes everyone out nearly every evening in and around Malacca! This is a common sight for... More

Howard, the owner, made the stay for us! We immediately felt welcome. He introduced us to other guests and planned trips out to restaurants and the market for everyone in the guesthouse. Easily the most helpful and hospitable owner we have met after 4 months travelling Asia. The rooms are good for the price and good location. Couldn't recommend this... More

We arrived around 8:30 pm at this guest house. No one was around because they had an organized biking around the area. When I called them up, they were assuring us that they're on their way to the house. What is so good here is the hospitality of the hosts. As if you're just at your own house. So friendly... More
