I was there for almost 2 weeks, during Christmas time... I had a great time and I met lots of nice people. If you are a backpacker looking for a nice place to relax for a few days where you can make new friends and decide where to go next, this is what you are looking for... Alan the manager... More

Alan the manager is absolutely brilliant, works really hard to make sure the guesthouse is clean and guests enjoy their stay. Felt really safe here and met lots of nice people too. One of the best places I've stayed and in a really good location!

Great place for a backpacker - the manager Alan is a legend and very experienced. He is transforming this place into one of the better hostels/guesthouses in Melaka and does the basics very well - clean, friendly, safe and quiet. Highly recommend.

6 of us stayed here for total of 8 nights. Mike (a very humorous person) took our booking and take good care of us especially on the street parking. Alan, host of the guest house do make us feel home during the stay. He make sure everything is clean, tidy and organized. Never see such a clean bathroom for guest... More

We stopped here for dinner after walking around the area. A family with young kids. The food is okay but the place need serious clean up. The table cloth is so dirty I have to think twice to put my hands on. As the wind blows, the table cloth is waving around, threatening to fly away. Food is okay but... More

Had a great stay at this backpackers guesthouse with the awesome host. Stayed in the female dorm with aircon which was very clean, just like the bathrooms. Very quiet at night in order to get a good rest. The place to stay for backpackers in Malacca!

My 1st experience backpacking here. The rooms are neat and tidy ;bathrooms are clean. This remind me of the old fashioned grandmother house of mine. Wooden floor, so we'll have to tip - toe while walking at night. After all, we are not the only guest here. You'll meet a lot of awesome people from different countries. LOVE IT!!! I'll... More

Had a very nice stay at the Guesthouse. Alan the host is a great guy who really cares for his backpacker friends. He also has lots of great info about Southeast Asia. I recommend to a friend!! Facilities are decent, I also recommend going for the AC room because the fan room gets noisy at night with cars driving by.

It was my first backpackers experience and I enjoyed staying in Discovery Guest House. Thanks Alan for making sure the place is safe, clean and comfortable for all guest. 3 to 5 mins walk to Jonker walk, cafes and the Stadthuys. 10 to 12 mins walk to the shopping malls and A Famosa.

Alan took good care of us during our stay. First time in this b&b, but love it...! Near to food, drinks, sights seeing and cafes...... The place is clean, well kept and neat. Love the living room area. We love crowding around that space....
