After reading some reviews, I can certainly see how these negative experiences could happen. However, it seemed to me that, perhaps, the owners are responding to some of these issues. For example, I was given a gate key and locker key, and could come and go as I pleased; my room was clean and the owners seemed very concerned about... More

奉劝想要入住此民宿的人们,请务必三思……不要仅仅为了省旅费和便捷的地点而入住,真的会后悔的。 This would be a small advise for those people who plan to visit Melaka and doesn't want to bring back terrible experience with them: DON'T STAY IN THIS HOSTEL. I was having a three days trip with my family and reserved this hostel for our lodging as it is really cheap and good location. Not going to mention why... More

I stayed for 5 days, and it was nice, clean, quiet, just as you would like it. The hosts were cheerful, helpful, and made me feel at home. The area around was filled with restaurants, and there was a good selection of reference materials on the general area, and the surrounding countries. My host got me bus tickets, and had... More

We made similar bad experiences as the other people, who gave a comment here. The owner approached us at the bus station, too and persuaded us to stay at his hostel. "Coincidentallyl" someone just cancelled his room reservation. So we had the room we wanted. Our room wasn't clean at all. We found a used tooth brush under the bed,... More

This is a fantastic guesthouse highly recommended for travellers, 45 ringgits for a double air conditioned room with breakfast included. Michelle was also kind enough to drive us to the guesthouse from the coach station and pointed out some of the sites on route. The location is convenient situated near to plenty of restaurants and shops. The beer is very... More

Had a great time here. TV room, clean kitchen and a wonderful FAMILY make you feel really at home here. Had some cool conversations with the owners and even some drinks! Beer is one of the cheapest in town (hard to find in Malaysia). The hostel doesn't have a pool but if you're lucky they might bring you to one... More
