The location is just nice. Near jonker street and nearby has car park if you are self-driving. Behind the hostel is the Melaka River, so at night the view still not bad. We booked it quite last minute most of the guest house were full due to long weekend holiday, so cost me RM85 per night (used to be rm... More

Great location along the beautiful river side! Neat and calm dorms, value for money. Drawbacks: No electrical sockets for charging Mobile phones or laptops at the dorm beds, except dorm bed no 19! If you want to try south Indian/vegetarian food, I would recommend Selvam, No 2 Jalan Temenggong, Melaka 75000, Cheap and best food in the town! The people... More

The location was great - just 5 minutes walk to the famous Jonker Street. Ideal for solo-travelers. The staff was quite ignorant when I came in, there was a blunt stare between the both of us before I broke the silence by letting him know I was checking in. Not much information of the hostel and the surrounding areas were... More

For my brief stay in Melaka, the experience is generally pleasant. The price is the prime factor I were consider, and "Sayang-sayang Guest House" is actually very reasonable. At the same time the place is fairly hygienic, and the location is accommodating.

Firstly, the roof leaks in the second floor large dorm room dripping water on you in the night. We arrived during check in times having notified staff but upon arrival doors locked and no staff. Had to borrow passer by's phone to ring them and when the guy (Mike) arrived we didn't realise he was staff, just walked past us... More

The location of this hostel is slightly more far than the hostel complex such as River View, etc. But, not to be worry about this because it still easy to reach and the good thing is the parking is slightly more many than the hostel complex due to you can park at the parking lot at the end of the...

We booked one night in Sayang Sayang Youth Hostel through Agoda. We contacted the hostel and requested arrangement for a pick-up service (to be paid). They were notified beforehand of our arrival details but when we arrived in Malacca, there was no pick-up service. We waited for like an hour but still there was no one coming. We had to... More

I'd rather say this place is a good place to stay, with a direct view to the river and a bike rental. I stayed in dormitory room and it was good enough but had less privacy since it is mixed dorm, but that was okay. It was clean enough and I can put my luggage on a locker beside my... More

Pros: Being able to be in one big room with your friends. Near to Jonker. Strong wifi in room. Cons: Customer service level: 1/10. Mosquitoes breeding place, literally have to touch your skin when they fly by because there's too much mosquitoes inside. Toilet/bathroom too small and dirty. Spider web at all corners. Can repaint the walls and ceiling, find... More
