It's my first time staying in a hostel alone and it was a memorable stay at Ringo's, Felt very rustic and down to earth with great hosts like Howard and Amelie, who are friendly and always ready to give useful information about Malacca Once I checked in, Howard handed me some clean bed sheets and blanket for me. which is...

Howard is really friendly and the guests there too. It is also easy to find the place, we just take any bus that goes to ocean mall and then just abt 7 mnts walking to reach there. Had a really good sleep after a tiring day walking :) we really enjoyed our trip! The yogurt ice cream is a must-have... More

This place has everything convenience what backpackers need for a stay; comfy sofas in every floors, good connection wi-fi, breakfast, bed, and...A ROOFTOP. For a hot weather in Malacca, the rooftop is an excellent space to chill out and gather and for some wind blows. Soon they will have yoga class there too and Howard once in a while arranges... More

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
