Every night we had to ask people to keep the noise down. Walls very thin. Floorboards very loud and people seemed to stomp past rather than walking normally. -One night... More

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.

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...

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
