“New Hostel with great location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2011

Stayed here during short getaway trip to Malacca. Loved its location as it's very near to all Malacca's historical charms. Staff are friendly. If you need blankets or towels, it's available for rental @ 2 ringgits each. I had a chat with staff, he mentioned hotel just opened in Feb 2011

Breakfast was included but don't expect too much as it's just a backpacker's hostel. However, you can cook some light meal 'cos they have kitchenette. You just need to make sure after cook you wash & keep the place clean & tidy.

There is a small area for you to sit back & relax on the top floor with TV & movie as well as free wireless internet.

7/11 is nearby as well so you can come down to grab your snacks or drinks anytime you want.
