One of the most sociable places you could wish to stay whilst travelling in Malaysia. Howard the owner\manager is a brilliant host and has countless interesting stories about his upbringing in Maleka (including one about his Chinese grandad and a monkey brain - ask him!) If you're travelling solo this hostel is a great way to bump into some like... More

I arrived at this hostel after a 7 hour bus journey from the Cameron Highlands, it was St Patricks Day and Howards (the owner) birthday and he was in China town with other backpackers celebrating. He let me in, told me to leave my bags and join the others! Had a great night meeting the others, drinking and dancing! This... More

This place is a great place for backpackers looking for budget accommodation and meeting fellow travellers. The owner (Howard) is very friendly and helps you out right away in case there are any issues (we only had one minor issue with the internet, solved within minutes). Unfortunately we had a jet-lag after flying back to Malaysia from the Netherlands to... More

The location was pretty good, though not right smack in the middle of Jonker Street, but everything was within walking distance, even to the bus stand with buses to take you to the main bus terminal. There are also plenty of local food options in the vicinity. The best part was the rooftop, which was a really nice place to... More

Myself and my boyfriend stayed here for 2 nights in Feb 2014. We stayed in a superior room with private ensuite. The room was spacious and even had a lounge area although we were out sightseeing all the time so did not make any use of it. The hostel also has lots of common areas dotted around that anyone. The... More

Ringo's Foyer is a stone's throw away from all the major attractions of Melaka- close enough to be convenient but far enough away to be peaceful and relaxed. The only sound that may stir you would be the call to prayer from the local mosque or the chatter of voices from the restaurant below. Howard - the owner, manager, maid,... More

Had a fantastic time staying at ringos foyer, simple rooms but really nice feel to the place as a whole - there's a nice little lounge on the second floor, perfect for relaxing with a book, and downstairs there's a kitchen with a fridge full of soft drinks and beers for a small fee. A simple breakfast is included, and... More

The host here is very nice!!:)He took us to a great place for dinner with other guests on arrival and was full of advice. The hostel is ok with some nice chill out areas. The bathroom is not the best with only a cold shower available and quite a lot of ants. However, the hostel is cheap and sufficient for... More

Ringo's foyer guesthouse is one of those guesthouses that has its own personal charm and character to set it aside from the rest. The rooms and the free breakfast are very basic but what you would expect from the price. What sets Ringo's apart is the owner/operator Howard. He takes people on free cycling tours around the city with his... More

I took a bus from LCCT to Melaka and arrive Melaka at 4 a.m, so that I have overnight at Melaka Sentral. In the morning, I take a bus to go to center. However, I could not walk to visit Melake because I have no sleep in Melaka Sentral. I went to Ringo- the hostel I booked via booking.com. Wow,... More
