It was my first backpackers experience and I enjoyed staying in Discovery Guest House. Thanks Alan for making sure the place is safe, clean and comfortable for all guest. 3 to 5 mins walk to Jonker walk, cafes and the Stadthuys. 10 to 12 mins walk to the shopping malls and A Famosa.

Alan took good care of us during our stay. First time in this b&b, but love it...! Near to food, drinks, sights seeing and cafes...... The place is clean, well kept and neat. Love the living room area. We love crowding around that space....

Showers and toilets are cleaned every day and there was always hot water. Lockers are provided. Nice little common area were there is easy to meet other travelers. The guesthouse... More

Alan takes such good care of all the guests that stay, you want for nothing. Security cannot be faulted, sometimes in guest houses and hostels this slips but not at discovery. Great location, and value for money.

Stayed here for 4nights in the ac dorm. Toilets and showers are very clean and there are more than enough. The host Alan is very friendly once you get to know him and takes his job very seriously. Everything is clean and Alan ensures everyone gets a good night of sleep. He also gives information about where to go in... More

The Discovery Cafe is located in the beginning of Chinatown in Melaka, next to the river. This is a great location for people who want to visit and discover Melaka. We didn't stay in the guesthouse, only went to the cafe. It has great wifi and the staff is very polite and helpful. They can give you tips for places... More

Discovery guesthouse is probably the best backpackers my girlfriend and I have stayed in. There is nothing negative to say, the positives are: * Alan - funny, interesting and helpful. You'll see when you arrive! * Central - close to everything, including Selvam (Indian restaurant that is worth going to Melake for, alone). * Clean - you feel clean there.... More
