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...

The hostel is in the old district of melaka, close to the joker walk. There are plenty nice places to eat just a one minute walk away. It´s also close to the river; you can have a nice breakfast there. The roof top is very relaxing, especially because melaka is not that big, so it´s nice to have a place... More

First you have to check in at their cafe across the street. They will take you back inside. We had a twin room with shared bathroom on the rooftop floor. There is no deposit. You have to walk barefoot as soon as you enter the guesthouse. But later I saw other ppl using flip flops... There are some coffee, water... More

This is the sister lodge of the river view which I would recommend over this purely for the view as they are both up to a high quality standard. The hostel has great facilities, the toilets and showers are incredibly clean the roof top one is great when the midday heat is up. There's tea and coffee available and occasionally... More

The hostel is perfectly located in pretty Melaka. We had to wait a few hours to check in but we're allowed to leave our bags there. The woman who works there answers all the questions by saying: you ask boss. The room was nice and clean although very noisy. Bathroom is fine and good sized room. We were beside the... More

You can stay right in the Old Town Melaka in this great guest house. The prices are very reasonable and the place is spotless with great outdoor patios and common area. Seemed to attract a lot of friendly people when I was here. Staff are also exceptionally friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

This place is good value for money. Staff were friendly and helpful but were not knowledgeable of the local area. The guesthouse is tidy and quiet and free cakes are a good bonus. Location is in walking distance of the sites too. The only cons I can think of is that it seems only the dormitory rooms have a window... More

I stayed here with my sister at the end of July. The hotel feels pretty safe; it is about three blocks away from Jonker Street. The room was decent and clean. However, the place felt a bit neglected. I saw Raymond (one of the owners) a couple of times in passing. Other than himself, there was one young man at... More
