We stayed two nights at this residence. Staff provided exceptional service, helping with a lost credit card and with ice for an injured foot. The room was clean and quiet and the location was very good, close to everything you would like to see in Melaka. There was also a helpful list of restaurants and sights to see in Melaka... More

Great staff, very accommodating, relaxed, quiet, clean. No vermin or old linen. Perfect location, basic cooking facilities. Bathrooms always clean and stocked with toilet paper and toiletries. Great little fruit stall next door open each day. We stayed for 3 nights and would happily have stayed longer.

A good hostel. Very good location and also beautiful location overlooking the river. Nice communal area upstairs and very sociable. The staff were quite helpful and spoke good English. Nice hot showers. My room was average- a bit dark and dingy and not nicely decorated. The wifi was difficult to connect to and I kept having to ask the staff... More

Awwww....what a sweet place. Super cool staff with so much integrity and personality. Comfy bed n pillow, awesome upstairs lounge with gorgeous river view, and you get a big lizard ( and the occadional cat) riverside to entertain you. Perfect location to walk everywhere, with books and restaurant tips in the lobby. You will be so relaxed!!

We stayed 3 nights in River One and really enjoyed our stay ! The staff is helpful and friendly, the rooms and the bathrooms are very clean and the location is perfect, along the river (obviously) and just 1 minute walk from Chinatown. They also have a kitchen you can use, so it's perfect if you miss to cook yourself... More

We are on our 2nd day of 4 here and i have to say this is one of the best places we have stayed in malaysia. Very clean and nice and quiet at night. There is a brilliant second floor where you can relax and look out over the river. Also a kitchen and you can get back to basics... More
