We had booked 2 nights with fan room with Traveller's Planet. Upon our check-in, our original room was taken. So we were upgraded into a room with aircon and attached bathroom for free!!! (It was a hostel, so that was really luxury). Very spacious and comfortable. But we were moved to our original room the next day, which was kind... More

We stayed a couple of nights. The room was very basic with mattress on the floor, couple of chairs and small desk but enough for a short stay. For the money it is a great deal. The communal area is spacious and relaxing. Shower and toilet are shared but separate so easy on the queues. Toilet not great though as... More

We'd paused for a cigarette on arrival to Melaka's bus terminal, and the lovely George approached us about his hostel. Turns out he knows my boyfriend's friend too (Melaka is SMALL!) and is generally a bit of a local expert. He gave us a little map and showed us which bus to hop onto. When we arrived at the hostel,... More

Sure ! George (Travellers Planet hostel Manager ?) was waiting for customers at Melaka Sentral bus station. He came to us and we decided to have a try with him at Travellers Planet hostel. We made a good decision. George and Nash are managing this nice well-spotted hostel. They are friendly and give you all they can give you. We... More

Great hotel... Anna has made this into a home from home! We stayed in a private room with shared bathroom. Room size was good, you could choose between fan or air conditioning. Bathrooms were good, hot shower and clean. Common area had a huge TV with over 400 DVDs to chose between. I would highly recommend if you stay in... More

My friend a I stayed just for a night. It was very quiet. We've stayed in a double bedroom with bathroom separately. Good location in Malaka, close to the shopping center. A little market 2minutes to walk. Clean. Air conditioning. Nice staff, I think it was a family.

I paid RM25/night per person for double room with fan and shared bathroom. The room was clean and very basic. The staff was friendly. Living room was awesome. It looks like a japanese style with travelers from all over the world chilling out together. Nice experience I would say.

We had a very spacious double room. Room looks new and the living room is also very modern and clean. Shared bathroom was also clean. Location is great, 5 minutes from stadhuys and china town. If you want to relax, you can watch a movie from their big collection.

We went to Travellers Planet Hostel with 5 friends during a trip in Asia last August, rooms were really nice and we didn't pay so much (as students it was cool to spend approximately 10$/night). The thing we liked indeed was the very friendly staff and the living room upstairs where we could have some rest and speak with the... More
