The guesthouse is right across the street behind the alley. When you checked in at the café they will call someone to come pick you up and show you the way there. The place is very clean and secure but looks sketchy when you enter the front door. However the host Allan was very knowledgeable and helpful. He's also a... More

Last week, I spent 2 days in Melaka and I chose Discovery Guesthouse when I suddenly see it's number at Bus station. After 2 days I knew that I made the right decision. The host is really nice. Even though in the first sight, I feel scare a little little little bit, but after all, I like him totally. He... More

The dorm room is at a different location and is a few steps away from the café. The front entrance smells really bad and there were plastic bottles/empty containers kept in the main floor. The owner treats his guests like military trainees and even if the gate requires an access card, he'd still lock it once all guests are in... More

The lounge room is very welcoming and comfortable and a great place to chat to others :) Tip: There are 2 parts to this guesthouse, where the restaurant/cafe is and across the road a minutes walk...

The hostel and especially the host Alan was great. Heaps of different rooms (AC, fan, dorm, double, etc), very clean facilities and good location for reasonable prices. Alan showed us around so much and made our short stay the best experience possible. 100% recommended!

No door in the dorm so anyone staying in the hostel can walk in...strange atmosphere which is pretty much... More

He can give recommendations and generally takes care of the hostel which is why it is in such a good shape. On top of... More
