Dont stay in the 16 bed dorm if you dont wanna get bitten a hundred times by bed bugs in one night. They have even bitten me in my face and my whole upper body was covered in bites, altough I was sleeping in an insect shield. When I told the receptionist the next morning, he just told me that...

Cozy little place conveniently located near Chinatown, The Stadthuys and also the river. Therefore it is near most attractions and food places as well. And the common area has aircon! The 16 beds dorm may seemed a little crowded but during weekdays at low season, there were only just a few guests. Thus you have a big room with plenty... More

Great location but no sleep. Noisy guests with thin walls. No duvet, just the cover. Bed bugs biting me. Stained bedding. Room was very very basic. Glad we only stayed one night. Staff were nice enough and helped with taxi and early departure. Showers were good.

The 16 bed dorm was infested. We stayed one night and missed every possible sign of bed bugs, (epically the blood stained sheets) once realized we.made a sharp exit. Realized our bags were covered in bed bugs. We then spent 4 hours in the self service laundry washing EVERY SINGLE ITEM of clothes ano luggage we owned. So to make... More

I stayed here for 2 nights with my friend. I felt comfortable during my stay. Lovely and small hostel but perfect location, it's close to Jonker Walk Street, just walking distance, and very quite in the night. Breakfast was okay, free wifi, connection was fast. Receiptionist was so friendly and nice.

Stayed 1 night in the dorms and was bitten all over by bed bugs. Convenient location at Jonker Street. Could've been better with no bugs.. Prices are cheap, facilities could've been better in terms of cleanliness.

My stay didn't get off to a great start after my booking was essentially misplaced. Lucky the room I had booked was still available, I didn't fancy staying in the 16 bed room. The room wasn't particularly flash. It had a lamp which had the wrong country's plug on it (which didn't matter as the room had a light), a... More

our reservation was changed to no-show, hence, cancelled, because we arrived at 11 pm although we had made a deposit payment (in the internet it says that you have to notify the hostel if you arrive after 1am). in general the atmosphere and design of the hostel are really nice but unfortunately, they have a major issue with cleanliness. the...

The venue is just behind the Jonker walk near the Calanthe Art Cafe. I'm here for 1 day 1 night stay. The room is clean, with fan and air conditioner. I had a very good sleep in this hostel of 4 person room with my friends. The bathroom is clean and comfortable, with water heater and good water pressure. The... More

Fernloft Malacca is conveniently located on the small lane pretty much parallel to the much-hyped Jonker Street in Malacca. The hostel is pretty much 4-5 minutes' walk from Stadthuys and the Dutch red square (not the one in Russia of course) because Melaka is not that big anyway. I hate to say this but unlike the perfectly organised Singapore..Malaysia kept... More
