My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in May 2014. We booked a private room with attached bathroom on the bottom floor. We really enjoyed this place! The common area was comfortable and great for meeting other travelers. The drinks were cheap and the staff were amazing! We met George at the bus station where he told us... More

Nice private rooms. Amazing free breakfast of sausages, beans, egg and toast! Sociable communal area, dvd player, cable TV. Staff helpful with travel advice. Not sure about rave reviews of Mallaca, not much to do, locals said the most authentic food was in the shopping mall . .

My girlfriend and I have stayed in Travellers Planet many times. Good double rooms, clean bathrooms, great staff, good location. At this price point, I have not been able to find anywhere better in Melaka. Highly recommended!

Overall this guesthouse has everything you need, clean rooms, friendly and well spoken english speaking staff, with a great communal area. Near to all the historic sites and 30 seconds to the night market. I have been traveling for 2 years, and this is a lovely place to stay.

My girlfriend and I took the air-conditioned room with shared bathroom. Room was quiet good, beds were comfortable, everything was clean and the staff was pretty helpfully. They have a nice furnished community room with TV, DVD's, books, etc., cheap drinks, free WiFi covering the whole place. Talk to George if you stay at this place, he is the manager... More

I took the air-conditioned room with attached bathroom. The room is a bit small so its more suitable for backpackers or a very short stay only. Room and bed was comfortable.I manage to spot 1 mosquito around. The male person-in-charge was really friendly. DVDs and books are available for you to read in case you are bored in the night....

Very clean place, comfortable, cozy living room. Nice and helpful staff. Truly the cheapest beer around. We spent a very nice few days there. Just one thing: stop selling the "continental" breakfast as being phenomenal and huge, it's just a couple of toasts with something and a tea/coffee. Nice but nothing amazing. We'll come again :-)

It was my first time staying in a guest house in malacca and I was very pleased with the whole place. Everyone was so welcoming. the only downside is that the toilet was a bit dirty but nothing that can't be handle. It was also loud at nite with the motorbikes around,probably because it;s the weekend. But overall,place is great.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Travellers Planet Hostel, Malacca is a modernize architecture building painted with striking orange outlook. Featuring 13 various budget rooms to standard deluxe rooms. When it comes to accommodation, we really meant business to cater for all. Located in the heart of Melaka (Malacca), city of UNESCO historical site. We are just minutes away from all tourist spot such as the Jonker Walk (Chinatown), Fort A'Farmosa, St. Paul's Church, The Dutch Square (Stadhuys) and even all the famous museum. This is the latest and newest backpackers travelers hostel in town. Friendly environment and fairly cheap price for rooms. Rooms availability from Single/Double/Triple Fan / A/C / Attached Bathroom. The best part is the atmosphere here is so laid back and fun, plus the great locality which is near to all sightseeing sites, but not on the main road. So the place is peacefully quiet at all times. Unless the socializing travelers are having a great fun... ... more   less
