Super nice backpacker hostel. The owners (Kuan) are a young educated couple and so friendly and helpfull. Day and night. The hostel is laying in walking distance of all of the major attractions of Melaka (for example Stadhuys and Jonker Street). The rooms are big anough and some of them have airco. The rooms have no bathroom, so you have to share it with the other guests. But the two bathrooms who are available are clean. The owner mr. Kuan also has two bikes for rent. So we explored Melaka on bikes, what was very pleasent. Ok, the bikes are not really made for western european guys, but in this case the locals also have something to laugh at. Also the beds can be a little bit short when you are taller then 1,90 meter.
Ok, its a simple hostel compare to 5 star hotels. But when you are backpacking i would really advice this hostel. Its cheap, clean, cosy and the owner is super friendly.
