Almost attractions in Melaka is near to each other so the location is not so important. The hostel is have river view, cool and romantic. The service is good, share bathroom and kitchen, no laundry and renting bike service but you can find near there. The staff is friendly, wifi is free, strong.

Stayed at River One Residence couple of times & they are always our choice of hostel as we feel very much at ease & welcome during our stay. The whole set up is very homely & fuss-free. Clean, safe, comfortable, convenient & affordable- everything checked in the backpacker/ holiday maker's wish list.

Initially the reception seemed nonchalant about me pointing it out. But after my initial disappointment things improved. The reception was nice guy. Bed was Very comfy and shared bathroom clean.

From 10 to 12 October, we spent our night at staying here. We really love the view at the back of this building and everything was just cool! I would choose to stay here again next time! Very warm service :)

I stayed in double bed room on first floor (facing the road). The room was very basic (air cond, clean bed, desk, chair and lamp). There were small kitchen (to refill your bottle) and 2 bathroom at the back of the building. On the 2nd floor, there were terrace which facing Melaka river. It was clean and quiet. Good place...
