Fantastic location in the aortic pump of Melaka! Jonker street is moments around the corner where there are countless stalls, shops, snack shacks and even outdoor karaoke! The guest house itself has great communal areas and facilities with a good mixture of travelers.No shoes indoors y'all!! Top Notch Travels

I was travelling solo, so I was looking for a hostel where I can meet other travellers, I walk in by chance to Rooftop, the place is full of positive and warm energy, original atmosphere, great assistance from Cone and her boyfriend (the duty receptionist) who were Chileans, working part time there. Rooms basic but clean, thanks for th No-shoes... More

The place is just within walking distance to Jonkers Street & the tourist places. So convenient that we can come back to rest during the walkabout. The guesthouse feels homely as well with air condition and common bathrooms have heaters.

Really nice place in the heart of Melaka. Good rooftop for socialising, nice big ac rooms, and really lovely lounge and kitchen space on the ground floor. They also have a good cafe over the road, which stays open later than most other places in the old town.

Me and my boyfriend only had one night here, and it was very very good! The staff are very lovely and helpful! The room as good, good aircon! Showers were great (especially the roof top shower)!! Good location, about a 5 min walk to the river! The riverside cafe is worth checking out, great banana pancake breakfast!

I stayed in a dorm at Roof Top. It was four single beds in a room. Not bunk beds. Every guest got a locker. I found that the bed was hard and woke with a sore back. The bathroom is outside all the rooms. I don't believe the private rooms have an ensuite. It was clean although I couldn't figure... More

This hostel is special and unlike the rest of the other accommodations in Melaka because of how green the place is. True to its name, the roof-top is lovely and conducive for a nice conversation. It also has a nice rain shower, which i enjoyed very much. CLEANLINESS The place is clean. No shoes are allowed in the house, a... More

口コミがとても良かったので予約を入れてチェックイン。ドミトリーに泊まろうとしました。 ベッドに座った瞬間、壁を歩く南京虫を発見。同じ部屋の女の子たちに話すと、昨日このゲストハウスの違う部屋に泊まっていた子がすでに南京虫に大量に刺され(スタッフに見てもらったら南京虫じゃない!蚊だ!と言われたらしいでもあきらかに蚊じゃなく30箇所以上刺されてた)、このドミトリーの部屋に変えてもらったそう。南京虫に気をつけてください! There has bed bugs!!!! Be careful to stay here. My roommate got so many bed big bites. And she stayed single room but she got them so she changed the room for dormitory. But the room also has them!!! I don't recommend this guest house !! Bed bugs everywhere!!!

Beautiful decor in the common areas, clean toilets and rooms. It's good it has a terrace but we only used to hand wash our clothes! Our room was on the first floor: clean, big enough with both fan and air con. The only con is that our window overlooked the corridor so it was a bit dark.
