“Good location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

Stayed in this hotel for two nights with friends. The room is quite small but clean with a big bed, the shared bathroom and toilet is dirty and the floor is always wet. Perfect location as it is in the centre of Melaka. But asides the cons, it was peaceful and filled with happy people.

If you're expected of place to stay over a night here. Do not book a 6 bed female dorm! First i was thinking the 'dorm' they said might be like other dorm in another hostel I've been before. But here, you only have mattress, pillow, thin blanket and bed sheet that you have to done it yourself

I had booked this hostel for 2 adults but I went there only one. I thought it would be worst if stayed two because the room was tiny and smaller than I expected.The shared bathroom was quite dirty and tiny also.But its location is very good,it located on the center of Melaka, located in the city center of all historical site just a few minutes walk.

I've stayed a night at this place and it was not a pleasant experience. i've stayed in hostel/backpacker place before and this is the worst so far.
if you are expecting the hostel to be privacy and peaceful, this is not your choice of stay. towel is not provided and they charge RM1 for each towel. the room is super small, which is OK, but the toilet is so small & if you are big size, you can't even turn your body and you have to queue long time for toilet. they do not have separate toilet and shower room. good luck to you if you are staying in top floor because the water pressure is so small like peeing. When I wanted to to complaint at the reception counter, there was no one at the counter and I suspect there's no one available to assist after 12am.
we (four of us) staying 2 rooms and we are unlucky to have unreasonable travellers staying on the same floor. The room's sound proof is already bad and those travellers talking very loud and we cant sleep well on that night, and when they wake up at 6.30am, they don't care whether other people still sleeping and they shout from one floor to another floor talking to their friends. my friend went out and warn them twice but they just ignore it. this was the worst place I've ever stayed in motel.

This is my first time sleeping in a hostel. The room is very cozy and clean. Value for money stays for a not so typical hostel setting. Toilets are small but still alright for a short weekend stay. It's around USD12 per person for 4 pax. There is an option to rent the hostel bicycles to explore town which cost Rm10 a day. Towards our last day of our trip, the hostel staff booked a cab for us. At Rm20. We missed the cab by 5 mins. Imagine needing to rush for the Express Coach under 30mins downtime. The Hostel management offered to take us instead. It was a total relief for us. Thank you very much for your kind hospitality.

It's okay with everything , but maybe can be more cleaner about the bathroom things , but it's sharing so it's fine. The balcony there's comfortable, people inside is friendly. They greet you every time they saw you. near to the town, very comfortable, but it's small still. My door got lock and we called , they will send people immediate to settle for you.
