We really recommend this hostel. The staff was very friendly and helpful and we used the rooftop terrace and the rooftop garden shower a lot. The rooms and shared bathrooms are basic, but clean and with AC. We could leave our luggage for the whole day before catching a night bus.

With Rooftop shower and chill-out zone. Nice stay for low budget, near jonker street and a bus stop. Quiet, friendly and safe with good wifi and book exchange. Thanks! I enjoyed my stay there very much!

Great location, clean showers and air-conditioned dormitories. We especially loved the roof-top shower and garden, an excellent place to talk after dark. This place also has a great living room to chill in. Props to Carson for checking us in at midnight and giving us advice on transportation options.

We had a pleasant stay in the Roof Top Guest House. All the staff was very very friendly and helpful. The house itself is in good condition. Our bathroom was not cleaned all the way through when we moved in and the bed sheets were surely washed but had some stains (which probably won't wash out anymore). Other than that... More

We stayed here for two nights, overall I can recommend the hostel, however there are some areas which could be improved, the bathrooms are not very nice and are quite mouldy. Our room which was near the bathroom was quite stale smelling and generally in the hostel there is mould around. However this is an old building and the staff... More

Pros: Well run, safe, people keep the rules, good area to do laundry Excellent location a few minutes walk from Jonker Street Cons: Room isn't mozzie... More

This is a budget hostel and the only bad thing was the smelly toilets/showers. You can avoid showering in that smell by going to the garden shower upstairs, it’s much nicer, bigger and flows better too. This place is in a great location (though everything in Melaka is walkable), we felt safe, and the staff was attentive. It’s a sister... More

Good guest house, nothing fancy. The two showers on level one weren't amazing so we used the shower on the roof deck for our stay, this was really nice and a bit of a treat being outside. The shower and toilet areas could be kept cleaner, but the rooms were very clean. Air conditioning was great. Wifi wasn't very good,... More

Good location - but located in a labyrinth of alleyways, if hard 2 find for those arriving by self-drive, ask the locals first, who would most likely guide you in a kind way -, the reception guy who looked like the owner of this place being warm & handsome (big point), the traditional feel of the GH's architecture in the...
