I was so excited and looking forward to my visit once again to Malaysia and of course the historical city of Malacca and the amazing Jonkerdee Hostel. I was undoubtedly again tremendously amazed with the place of my choice for accommodation for the second time and must say once again I felt like I was an important person, because that's... More

Dear Madam Janiz, Here's what I really want to thank you for (which also reveals) your 'humble' side for not having mentioned it in your review, though I wouldn't mind even if you did.

We have been travellers almost all of our lives. In all of those times we travelled, we experienced and encountered excellent services and conditions along with some rather poor ones, too.

Andre played the bongo and sang. Some others played the other instruments. We had a great time. I laughed till I cried tears of joy.

We stayed at the iconic Jonkerdee Hostel before. Back then, the hostel was not as yet listed in TripAdvisor and so we got to know this unique hostel through recommendation and word of mouth. We use the term 'iconic' because the Host or Owner is an 'icon' who has carved or niched a name for himself in the Malacca entertainment... More

Our holiday in Melaka began with an outrageous affair with Jonkerdee Hostel. We booked the whole hostel during the period 28-2 to the 2-3-2015. It was wonderful having the hostel to ourselves. Everybody's familiar with the phrase, "Do not judge a book by its cover" Well, apply that to Jonkerdee Hostel. You'd probably ask yourself, "How much difference can one... More

Dear Sir, The "outrageous affair" between the Jetsun family and Jonkerdee hostel was, I would say 'one of a kind'. There had been other families, but never like this. I'd say you blended in well, diversified though the family might have been. I don't know why, too, I took on that risk of shouldering that responsibility for the largest family... More

I made a last minute decision to go to Malacca and for this reason didn't take much time to figure out hostels. As this one had good ratings I decided to go to jonkerdee.
