This place is dirt cheap ! Stayed in the dorm room which is an open loft with several beds. Toilets/Showers are plentiful and clean. Lockers are a little dodgy and there are a few suspect long stay guests who decided to aggressively confront a friend on a tiny issue ! Wifi very iffy and slow. Great location mind

We made a reservation at this guesthouse. It was not honoured. Upon arriving we were informed that they had no rooms left. The owner was most unapologetic. Lots of other guesthouses in the area are more accommodating. Give this place a miss!

Stop one night at Melaka for our trip to KL, Cheng Ho guest house is quite ok for 1 night as we check in late (9pm). Welcomed by an old man but as he was so familiar with Agoda's voucher that our check-in quite smoothly. He even did not forget to give me an local map for area around so... More

Might be the best dorm I've ever stayed at. For 15rm you get a massive dorm with 12 beds (actual beds, none of them shaking, nervous-making bunkbeds!) including free internet and breakfast. Clean sheets, blanket, towel, pillow case, soap. Good fans on the seiling. Only minus is that there's no door, but the hostel is so clean and safe it... More

The place is located at harmony street. Great but at 6 am you will be greeted by loud sound from the mosque and hindu temple across the street. The room itself was OK albeit at bit small. Most of the rooms have no window hence it is strongly recommended to get aircond one. Wifi is a bit hit and miss.... More

Highly recommended! They have very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are not to big but very clean, with air con and fan as well. We didn't book in advance, just walk in from the street and we could choose the room as they had quite a few available. There is also computer with an internet access in the reception hall... More
