Stayed here for about a week. The guesthouse has a nice bright and airy atmosphere in the communal areas. Double ac room was small but absolutely fine, bed large and comfortable. Tea/coffee and water is provided all day. Standard toast and jam breakfast. One downside was there is too few toilets/showers but we didn't have to wait long to use... More

An all round good hostel and good value at RM17 per bed in the dorm. The room itself is nice as it's not bunks and there is a lot of light. We didn't find the noise too bad - only on Saturday night there was a bit of base. There's a cute lounge and hang out area with lots of... More

We arrived very late (around 10pm) in Plaza Mahkota and we missed the night market and also, it was really scary that time of the night so we just opted to sleep to prepare for the next morning. It has a very homey common area with cable TV at sofas. WiFi signal is weak in our room upstairs so we... More

Stayed here for 2 nights with my friend. It was nice guesthouse, but really need serious improvement on sound-proof. Can feel it was only a thin board between 2 rooms, and we need to talk very softly in order not to disturb our neighbors. Anyway, it is a very strategic place, as it nearby to every single hot-spot place in... More

What i really loved about is was the staff was friendly , in fact DEE (staff) gave us a treat on the Archery arcade and on the street karaoke (with the other guests on the hostel ). Even the owner was... More

We stayed two nights in Lavender on 9 and 10 february. The room is basic and ok, the location is good and the common area with free movies to watch is cool. But the receptionist wasn't that friendly. First he tried to give us a fan room but we booked an aircon room through Agoda. Other people who arrived after... More

Clean but small room. We were supposed to get a double/twin room but got only single-room with extra bed. Location was good, near shopping centers and restaurants. Chinatown also close, by walk about 5min. We went this guesthouse over a weekend and on saturday night there was young men drinking and yelling near our room. We tried to sleep but... More

Having stayed in two other hostels in Melaka and leaving due to poor standards, I found this place by chance and what a find! The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was clean as were the bathrooms. Wifi worked in the rooms and the bed was comfy enough. One small complaint is that single rooms are only available with... More
