For backpackers, this was great. Excellent value, room was spacious, fan and a.c.. Common area was great place to meet fellow travellers. Location was excellent, walking distance to everything! Family is nice and provides an amazing book on the secrets of Melaka. Bed was the most comfortable bed we have slept on so far.

It is a small, quite and well protected guess house, with the river at the back. The common area/veranda at 2nd floor is very nice, especially looking at the boat cruising along the river at night. The room is very basic, only bed and AC. The share bath room is enough to serve the guess. Cookies, tea, coffee are provided... More

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.
