I absolutely loved this place!! I was in a huge room with a nice terrace looking out onto the river. It was a very different atmosphere to any other hostel we had come across, much quieter and with older guests. It has everything you need: - Hot water - Free wifi - Air con and fans - Great location nr... More

I had such a lovely stay at the River View. We stayed there for 2 nights, the room was clean and a good size. The shared bathrooms are basic but very clean. The house has lots of character and backs onto the river. The staff are so friendly and accommodating, helping us find things around the town and recommending places... 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.
