Nice location clos to the street market and city center, good value for money rooms. Cheap (and old) bikes available for rent to explore the city. It's also a good place to meet fellow travellers and chill. Check out the bar further downt he street with all the cat pictures for the cheapest beer in town!

I stayed in the dorm room which is big with no ac but I actually had some really good sleep, each bed has a separate fan. The people I met here were all lovely. The tours the hostel organises are varied and interesting and a great way to meet other people. Location is excellent and I'd definitely come back here... More

We lived here our first two nights i Melaka, then moved to their other place Jalan Jalan Besi. The ONLY reason for moving was that the heat in the big dorm was aweful. We have lived in a lot of dorms but both of us slept two hours because of the fans noice, heat and movement. The guy at the... More

Great calm location in the heart of China town. Lovely old building with all its charm. The atmosphere was friendly and calm, no noise complains. Shared bathrooms outside were clean. We got a small dark room with double bed, fan and mosquito net - all you need for a good night rest with as little mosquito bites as possible. We... More

The location of this guesthouse in the heart of Chinatown was excellent; a stones throw from Dutch square and just off jonker walk for interesting shops and restaurants and the manic weekend night market. We stayed in a twin bunk room. The bed was comfortable enough but a bit wobbly, there's no air conditioning but fans keep things just about... More

Jalan Jalan gets two stars, one for location and one for its social environment. But that's it with the positives. We booked 4 nights in one of the private rooms but had to cancel after 2 nights because we were eaten alive by bedbugs. 36 bites in one night! When we talked to a member of staff about it, he...

Jalan means road; jalan jalan means to walk; saying jalan jalan to a shopkeeper means you're just window shopping. This place is in an original funky Melekan shop house. It's narrow and long with inner courtyards for sunlight then. The toilet and showers are outside in the back yard. Wifi is best when you're sitting next to the reception desk.... More

This hostel is great value for money. The location is great, plenty of places to eat and things to do in the area. I stayed in the 10 bed fan dorm, which is made of 10 single beds and each bed has its own fan. The rooms and the bathrooms are kept very clean, and even though the bathroom is... More

Jalan Jalan has been one of the nicest places i have stayed at. The crew took us to local places, cheap eating and other tips, also a cycle trip to the floating mosque. The crew were very knowledgeable about the area. The place was clean, quiet but busy and a great way to meet new friends.
