Had a great time staying here, rooms are clean and it has a great atmosphere. Allan, who runs the hostel, is great for a yarn and makes sure to introduce everyone, which creates a great sense of community. The cafe across the street is a great place to relax and the staff are friendly and attentive. Would and have recommended... More

This guest house is simply amazing. Place is convenient but the decisive factor is the guest house manager - Alan. He keeps the place clean, with affordable water. He has backpacker experience and created this place very tourist-friendly. In case of any question - just ask him for advice.

2 Nights at the Discovery Cafe Hostel was great. The rooms are extremely clean, and I challenge you to find even a stray hair on the floor. Bed sheets, blankets, and towels are also very clean. My 8 bed room had fans in it as well as an air conditioner that kept everything nice and cool. The hostel has all... More

I grabbed a yellow pamphlet, or is it brochure?, from an unmanned Information Booth inside the Melaka bus terminal about this Discovery Guesthouse, complete with instructions to get there. I found it very interesting because in the map, it quite close to Stadthuys where most heritage sites are located. It was actually a very short walk along Lacsamana Street from... More

Nice place to spend a couple of nights if you're visiting this historic city as it is within walking distance of all the historic sites. Rooms are clean and tidy and staff are helpful and pleasant. Boss is a straight, firm and fair guy laying down the rules. Overall a decent stay at reasonable cost.

2 nights at discovery went without a hiccup. The place is really clean and the rooms are tidy. The English guy running the place seems like a nazi at first, but is really nice once you get to know him. Very centrally located, everything seemed to be within about 10-15 mins walking distance :) worth the money if you're looking... More

I just wanted to comment on Guest House only because we did not have time to enjoy a night at Discovery Cafe. The most impression was "quiet". The staff told us that we needed to step upstair softly, and quietly because people was sleeping, certainly at late night. What I did not like was that he said it again and... More

I recently took a group of 14 lads an one teacher to Melaka and whilst Discovery Cafe wasn't our first choice, awe had absolutely no regrets over our stay at Discovery. We were immediately given briefing by the colourful Alan who showed us the incredibly clean and well maintained facilities. He laid down the law straight away and we respected... More

My friend Annika and i stayed for two days in july. We loved our stay there ! The place was very nice and clean. Alan was such a nice guy, he helped us and offered his help many times. He welcomed us very well and we had a nice talk all together. The air conditioning was more than appreciated !... More

Stopped at this place for a drink and snack. The rum and coke tasted more like rum with a shot of coke (not complaining, just saying) and they had one of the best fries I had in a while. I think it's called the 'Commando Fries'. Nice place to chill with your mates or just take in the atmosphere.
