“Great place and staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013 via mobile

The atmosphere here is welcoming and staff Anna goes out of her way to look after you. Rooms are clean even under beds, toilets, showers and share kitchen are kept clean. Great place to just chill, have your own space or share extra large lounge area, this is my second stay and I will be back again, thanks

Planned to stay for three days, liked it so much we stayed for two weeks. We had a double room with aircon. Anna is a great hostess, welcoming,friendly,organised and fun. The hostel was always very clean and homely. We used the laundry service, internet service, enjoyed free access to coffee and breakfast and enjoyed the book share and watched some dvds in the lounge area. All good would not hesitate to return or recommend.

Room Tip: Melaka is very hot, book a room that has aircon it was definitely worth the small but extra charge

Manager (Ajit) made us an offer at the bus stop. Kept his word on the price, but gave us a room he knew to be below standard, with a sewage pipe that leaks into the shower area (this is a first floor room to the rear of the hotel).

It was Tet, so the place was booked and we couldn't switch rooms. Manager made no effort to fix the problem or cover the stench. Just kept on drinking beer intended for the guests.

Room Tip: If you do decide to stay here, insist on a room that's on the second floor.

We are very happy about our stay here. We got a nice doubble room with a fan for 35 RM, and the room has a window and feels very light. We share bathroom with others but they are very clean. The Guest House also offers rooms with both AC and private bathrooms. Breakfast with toast and coffe/tea is including but you have to rent towels and a blanket for the bed.
( also good prices) The Guest House has a very good location and you can walk everywhere, they have a big living room where you can hang around, play games, watch movies and drink beer. ( the hostel has the cheapest beer in town!) You feel like home.

The staff are very friendly and have a great hospitality! They welcome you into their home and they really make a nice atmosphere. We liked it and stayed two more nights! The Guest House also has free Wifi in your room! The best hostel/ Guest House on our trip!

Room Tip: The Guest house has different types of rooms, doubble,singel,fan,ac, private bathroom. We wanted it...

Stayed for 3 nights at 55MR.
Our room was clean and a good size. Our private bathroom was very small but had everything you might need.
Good location- close to Melaka town and shopping malls.
Ana was very friendly.

Only concern was we stayed on ground floor and the window to our room didn't feel very secure.

I was approached at bus station, by lovely guy.. ( Ajit ) Not the usual pressure approach, instead, a bit of patter that all turned out to be correct.
Right in the mix of things to do.. I had 4 days there and could have stayed a further week..
Anna welcomes you at the hostel, and she's a star too... All the staff were wonderful.. No problems at all, use of the kitchen area,fridge etc...cheap beers, water and soft drinks available. rooms to suit any budget...Fan...A/C..En suite...shared bathroom...TV...Or not.. your choice...?
Each night was a great gathering place in the lounge and reception area.. people from all over the globe...
Met other friends of the people that run the hostel, and was invited out to eat with them...
Always good suggestions of where to go, eat and save money..
Lots of smiles, clean rooms, hospitable people, and at a great price ...
Cannot recommend highly enough... Thanks for my lovely stay, Ajit, Anna and all other staff...

Room Tip: There are some beautiful swimming pools open to the public within 3/4 mins walk... plenty of Gym'...
