The hostel was clean and staff were helpful, he tried to help any guests to provide the information about Mellaca. Moreover, I can get a lot of new friends there and where can strangers become a friend. I think the best accommodation to stay is this guesthouse. The location is very very nice that is near the center of Jonker... More

This hostel was very clean and staff were helpful and also can make a good friend. It's worth for you to stay here. I stayed here for 3 nights, I was really happy to stay here. Location was very good in the Jonker walk street, just 2-3 minutes by walking. It's very easy to roam around Mellaca.

PROS: Excellent security with two doors requiring a scan card to get in. And location is right in the old town, steps away from the night market and stadthuys. CONS: The lady running the place wasn't the friendliest, only answered questions when asked. When I stayed, there were very few other guests so there wasn't much of an atmosphere. The... More

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.

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.
