We didn't stay in the guest house but had two meals in the cafe.The man who seems to run the place is called John and he is extremely friendly and helpful.The food was excellent and very reasonably priced.I would certainly recommend this place and if you need any help ask for John.

Very cheap price and basic free breakfast, good facilities, nice and clean. The staff are friendly but can be quite talkative! Its great for just a couple of nights but wouldn't stay any longer than that. Really close to little India and Jonker street!

I stayed in this hostel with a friend of mine, we booked online 2 beds in a dorm. The prices are incredibely cheap! Because of the low price we didn't expect much. Turns out the hostel is in a great location right in the middle of the 2 main areas of Melaka, the staff is really nice, you can have... More

Did not stay at this Guest House but eat in its Cafe. It is a little out of the main tourist areas so might have overlooked it, if parking in Melaka was easy. As it turned out, parking round the corner from it was a wise choice. The food was excellent and the staff friendly and efficient.

The staffs- John and Craig (If I am not mistaken) were really helpful.Their customer services were superb! The location of this budget hotel is walking distance to Stadhuys Building and Jonker Walk.It's a perfect hotel if you prefer budget accomodation and really enjoy your stay with other backpackers from other countries all around the world.

Great location in the centre of Melaka and good value - you can walk everywhere from here. Staff very friendly and helpful. Dinner ok, breakfast, included in the price - basic toast and tea / coffee but ok. There is the original guesthouse, a second place across the road and down the street plus a new place almost next door,... More

Although my stay at Discovery had been pretty short, it had been pretty pleasant. The location of the guesthouse is to die for and it is just next to the river. Jonker Street is within walking distance and all the other attractions are located in tight cluster around it. There are plenty of restaurants, stores, ATMs, shops etc around and... More

Basic room, for fuss free budget travellers. Quite near to places of interest like Jonker Walk and Red Square. The rooms are located at an old refurbished shophouse across the street from the cafe. The gates are locked at 10pm (I think) so if you will stay longer than this time, you would have to enter the place through a... More

Melaka, great place with alot of history, honestly don't plan on staying more than 1-2 days there as there is not much to do. the guest house is a great backpacking and you can organise busses and transport from right in the foyer. NOTE- i bargained with the guy organising the bus trip to singapore to get a better price,... More

It was a nice stay with my famaly in this hotel.It was so nice to sit in the open restaurent with live music in the evening. The staff was nvery helpful. The location of the hoptel is ideal to do the shoping and to have a walk in the evening in the historical city of Malaka.
