We really enjoyed our stay. Alan, who runs the guesthouse, can give you all kinds of advice on where to go and where to eat. Rooms are clean but small, shared bathrooms are clean. Great place to stay for small budget!

I stayed at the room above the cafe.The room is very small. I feel like i'm stuck in a pothole. Thats how worst is this place. The toilet.. Is another nightmare. Almost like a prison toilet. The surround area is disgusting and dirty. I just have no words to describe. I cant believe and don't know how this place get... More

Alan, the host, is very helpful and cheerful. The guesthouse is nice, clean and have everything you need. We arrived on Friday night and left on Monday morning and felt rested. We had a very great weekend in Melaka! Thank you

Wanting just a bed to lie down on for the night, I feel that this place met all my needs. The host had very specific rules but they were fair in the interest of the people staying there. Met a few European backpackers and a Malaysian family group. Most importantly, the beds were clean and comfortable. I would go back... More

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

Great couple of nights here. The rooms were very clean and the guy here, Allan, was extremely helpful and friendly! Highly recommend staying here. 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...

Well, what can I say, this guest house is near by almost everywhere in melaka. I mean, it located near by Little India, Jonker Street, and many other tourist spot, everything could be reach by walking in about 5-10 minutes. Also this guest house has an extraordinary staff (Alan) which I really enjoy talking with. The price is cheap, and... More
