We are far too 'old' for the guesthouse scene but nevertheless, we dropped in for a thirst quencher one evening. Relaxed ambience, wasn't busy at all then. Alcohol (non-beer) is not the cheapest. The young lady who manned the till was a sweetie. A laid-back kind of place which was not a bad thing at all.

After walk around on the sunny for a few hours. We found this place quite windy. We stop by and order fresh lime juice which came with a lot of seeds in the bottom of the glass. My attempt to try nyonya laksa was blown.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this guesthouse for several reasons. The location was perfect for exploring Melaka, right next to the river and little India where I could get cheap alcohol. The store right across the street has duty free beer, just ask for it, they hide it behind the Sprite in the cooler (too funny). The cafe is... More

Stayed her for 1 night. The house itself is amazing, very special interior and setting of the rooms, feels very authentic. Breakfast is good for what you pay for and the location is super central. so its super value for money.

If you are on a tight budget, you can get a bed here at 15rm a night - quite a steal! Of course, this is for the basic dorm, and the warm weather, humidity, and mosquitoes can really get to you if you aren't used to it. I suggest the air-conditioned dorms at 20rm a night. The added comfort for... More

Very relaxed and friendly staff, especially John is very polite and easy-going! We spent just 1 night, which was quit; rooms are unspectacular but tidy. Good hostel to stay a few nights! Located quite central, you can reach everything within a few mins! Great river right next to it :)

The rooms are very neat and tidy. In spite of thin walls it is very quiet and good air-conditioned. Restaurant including. Different sorts of beer is avalible, and good food. Walking distance to all attractions around. Moped and bicycles for rent. Hostels own "Teksi"-call. Very to recommend is the seafood-restaurant "PARAMESWARA" in Umbai just out of town.

Stayed here for 5 nights in a private double with shared bathroom. Happy with the RM50 per night - very affordable, great location - only about 5 mins walking along the picturesque riverside to Jonker St. The food was beautiful - especially the Laksa! Extremely tasty. John was extremely helpful, went out of his way to make sure we were... More
