The rooms seriously need ventilation. If you're the type to hang your socks and clothes around the room, you might have a problem with the odor. During the day the room it's so hot and dense to the point of difficulty in breathing.

L'armada Guesthouse was definitely a great value. I stayed here for one night in a single room. The bathroom was kept very clean, and the sheets on the bed appeared to have been washed. The location is also excellent, as Chinatown and the old city were very close by. If you are looking for cheap, no frills accommodation in Melaka,... More

rooms are small, very small. no air conditioner. in this part of the world, if you are coming from Europe or America, you must have an aircon. Noisy place. One can easily hear all the cars passing by the guesthouse. Lizards are in the rooms; you sleep, then open your eyes and you can easily spot them. Mosquitoes are everywhere;... More

We stayed here for 3 nights while backpacking through Malaysia and had a great experience. The guesthouse was fairly quiet when we were staying there and we booked a private room so I'm not too sure what the experience of the dorms is like. They do look fairly open. Because it was low season we paid 30RM for our room... More

The hostel is a nice place to stay during your stay in Malaka, the location is very nice and just 10 min walk to the very famous Jonker street and all the tourist accommodations. To get to the hostel is only 10 taxi or bus ride from the bus station. The place is ok, you get what you pay.
