We were welcomed into the owners house and managed to get the last room on a busy holiday weekend. She was super friendly and smiley which was great, the room downstairs didn't have a window but it was clean and cool. They offer free coffee, tea, bread to make toast and biscuits all day. Along with drinking water. You can... More

After staying close to the mosque in the paralel street, finding this guesthouse felt like heaven. We stayed in (double) rooms 3 and 6, on the street side. Super clean, big rooms and oh, the bed...! We were so comfy we'd wake up super late everyday, not hearing (if so, very dim) the prayer call from the mosque. Having free... More

They have a location very near to Jonker. A budget hostel with its own charm. Will not advise to drive there. As there is no parking lot allocated for guest. Wifi is weak at level 3 room. The connection is better at level 2.

We had a room facing the river with windows and air-con, so it was very comfortable; however, there are rooms without windows or windows opening towards the corridor and fan. From this perspective, the quality of the rooms vary. The shared bathroom is clean and functional. The owner is very friendly and always helpful.

A hostel location is good and very near Jonker rd. and easy to go to Dutch squire. We can go to bus station of university for going to Maleka sentral by hostel... More

I stayed here 2 nights, and of the other hostels and guest houses I have stayed in Malaysia I would say this is below average. For an AC private room the cost is 80 RM, non AC private is 35 RM but it smells like mould and is steamy. There was a small breakfast which was crackers and instant coffee.... More

I really enjoyed my night here. After being a bit worried by the dingy reception we were taken upstairs to our rooms which were all clean and spacious and nicely decorated. Nothing fancy but what I was expecting from a hostel in old Melaka. Our room was the best with a massive bed and looked out onto the river and... More
