Thank you for the stay Victor/Nathan. We stayed for two nights and had a wonderful time. The hotel employees are friendly and helpful. It's affordable and well located which enabled is to walk everywhere in Maleka. Many local restaurants around :)

Stayed here twice, each time for a week. Sam is an excellent host and makes everyone feel welcome. Group outings are great for solo travellers. The location of this hostel is right in the centre of where you need to be, and not at all loud apart from the odd call to prayer. Would without doubt stay here again if... More

Stayed here for a week in total, such a friendly, comfortable place. Stayed in the large ten bed dorm, individual fans on each bed so mosquitos stay away. Basic, cheap and the owner Sam is one of the nicest people you'll meet. Highlight of our time in Malaysia.

This is not a 5 star hotel so pretty much everything this guesthouse offers is pretty basic. My cousins and I took the dorm room which has 2 bunk beds and attached bath but no A/C. The room came with 2 wall fans and 1 stand fan which is enough to keep the room cool especially the afternoon heat. We... More

Cons: Mattresses were a bit too thin, no A/C but each bed had individual fans, no spots to put your bags/belongings in, no curtains so bring an eye mask if you want to sleep past sunrise, being earplugs as the bass pumping trishaws continually drive by, open air rooms and the 2 stagnant water features resulted in way too many...

I had planned to only stay for a couple of days, but ended up staying almost two weeks. A great place to relax, cheap private rooms, and wonderfully, newly restored showers. It's is on the street up from Jonkers street, but the area is quiet and clean. Close to many restaurants. Walking distance to all big attractions in town and... More

My 2 sons & I (ages 5 & 8) stayed here last week for 2 nights. Melaka has (in my mind) 3 areas - Chinatown's guesthouses & narrow streets to wander (quite safely!), several blocks chock full of museums, and then the big mall area. The guest house is only 2 blocks (maybe less) from Hard Rock Cafe, yet it... More

I stayed in Jalan-Jalan for a few nights when visiting Melaka. Firstly, the owner, Victor, is a very kind and helpful man who tries to make you feel as much as home as possible. And I truly felt like being home! The hostel is extremely cozy and nicely decorated, with enough places to hang out. The dorm room consisted of... More

Jalan Jalan is a cozy hostel, quite spacey with a lounge at the reception and a nice grasspatched yard in the back, both places smoking is allowed. I haven't seen the dorms, but the bunkbed-room me and my mate are staying in is good computers to the Price of 40RM a night. 2 fans, a table and a chair and... More
