The Discovery Guesthouse is a very nice one with a nice, familiar atmosphere. They have a good and clean dorm room with aircon at a pretty cheap price. The Guesthouse is managed by Alan, a funny guy, who always takes care about you, helps you if you need and loves to chat and joke. Also the other guests were friendly... More

We spent 3 nights at Alan's guesthouse which is located just a few meters apart from the lovely discovery cafe. The location is perfect - just in the centre of the city and very close to the best Indian (an cheap!) restaurant in town. The rooms are very clean, the beds are very comfortable and Alan always takes care that... More

I stayed in discovery and I could not say a bad word about this accommodation it was clean, good value for money, well located and Alen who works here goes above and beyond to help you with anything you need, from recommending the best places to eat, places to visit and transport to other parts of Malaysia at the end...

Still very clean, comfy, homey, and well located... I unfortunately could'nt find anything to complain about during that second stay... And believe me, I've tried hard! I've even found some improvements and I've heard they'll keep working on it! Unbelievable! Need a booking? No sweat if you don't find any vacancies on websites such as hostelworld... People should search through... More

Originally me and my friends wanted to stay two nights in Melaka but we liked the city and Discovery that much that we prolonged. The room and facilities were nice and clean and Discovery Cafe is a good place to hang out. Plus the location is perfect, next to little India (good restaurants) and in walking distance to all sights.... More

When we walked in, at first I couldn't believe my eyes... during two months of travel through Thailand and Malaysia I haven't seen so clean and cosy budget accomodation as the Discovery. We've had a dorm beds with fan and finally I could sleep well in fresh bedding and take a shower with pleasure. Alan is fantastic friendly guy with... More

Overall a safe, comfortable place to stay. Don't be fooled by the loud Cafe - the guesthouse is very quiet. They were nice enough to let me in at around midnight, though I was chastised to come earlier, so be warned if you come in on a late bus that you might not be let in. Their facilities are safe,...

After reading other reviews we decided to stay at this guest house but requested that we stayed in the quieter annex which was a two second walk down the road. The annex is run by a really helpful English guy called Alan who showed us around the annex and also took us to a great Indian restaurant just across the... More

I arrived in Melaka without having informed myself about places to go or to sleep so I was so happy to find this lovely guesthouse! It's situated in little india, you find excellent indian food just around the corner and since the location is so central most of the destinations are walking distance. I stayed in one of the rooms... More

"when you are checking-in at the Discovery Guesthouse reception make sure you are booked into the building you want, because there are 2 seperate buildings, one over the cafe reception which can be very noisy, especially at night with the karaoke, and the other situated behind the shops across the road, it's quieter, cleaner, and seems well maintained"
