Well, I am afraid I cant rave about this place like most people before..There are good things about it, I will start with those..The location is really good, common areas charming and free wifi fast and reliable. There was different cake on offer every day I stayed which is very nice. BUT although they claim they got rid of the... More

Beautiful house, nicely decorated. I liked their home-like common area with TV, couch, dining table and (almost real) kitchen. Nice change from noisy, party driven hostels. :) Free coffee, tea, drinking water, Chinese cake and fruit. Fast wifi too! Note that room itself is very basic, as mentioned in other reviews. I stayed in dorm room and noticed water dripping... More

We stayed here for two days and it had a beautiful hallway but the room inside was really basic. That was ok, but there was fungus on the wall and the room smelled bad because of the fungus. The location is really good near the river and it has a nice terras. They also make jummy cakes.

Stayed 3 nights with my partner. The free cake is a lovely touch. Enjoyed the proximity of guest house to old melaka. Very simple, no frills place, but clean. They aim to ensure that communal respect and quiet is respected. And good value for money. Recommended. Note - try to stay further away from the road, as it is loud... More

Had a great time, the staff were very helpful and the warm , homemade cake was an absolute treat- so tasty. They also helped us to organise the 'Eco bike tour'. Our room was a little pokey but for RM58 a night it was great value for money. Thoroughly enjoyed watching the sunrise over the river from the pretty balcony.

The house is beautiful and the staff is very nice and helpful. Stay away if you don't want to be bitten by bedbugs, I was fully... More

Stayed here in a single room near the road (wouldn't recommend if you don't have ear plugs as street is noisy). Rooms are clean with a/c and well furnished. Shared bathroom is clean but there are a few sugar ants on the walls. The staff are what really make this place amazing: they are more than helpful and even cook... More
