The manager here is unbelievably happy and welcoming!! He takes you on bike tours of the city and outside, introduces you to other guests and takes you to the local markets. He really makes you feel at home. Excellent hostel

The night bike tours were a lot of fun! Staff (Howard) was great and gave excellent recommendations and led all the bike tours. Also, we love traveling for food. Ringos is near some great eateries, including upstairs from an excellent and cheap Dim Sum. Though, the main attraction in Melaka is the night food market Fri-Sun which only a block...

It was my third time in Melaka and would like to stay in a place near Jonker Street. Spent two nights in this hostel. I initially booked a bed in a 4-bed dorm room but was accommodated in a 2-bed room (Yay!). Basic fan room, decent toilet and the common area is okay to chill. Too bad I didn't get...

Had two nights at Ringo's Foyer Guest House. Being my first hostel experience I was apprehensive but as soon as we set foot through the door we felt at home. Howard made everyone feel included by organising bike rides and communal dinners. Bathrooms clean and roof terrace a definite plus. We stayed in air con family room which offered everything...

We stayed for 4 nights at Ringo and find it very good for value. Since we spent mostly going out sightseeing, we didn't get to stay in the room so much. But the room is decent and clean. For the money we have paid, it is definitely worth the value. Plus the location central and it is just behind Jonker...

Driving to Melaka from KL, one of my main concerns was parking. At Ringo's, there is a parking lot just next to the building, and several others scattered nearby, which makes it an ideal place for those driving to Melaka (as most of the touristy places are parking nightmares!). My aircon double room (at the building front) was spacious and...

The rooms were really basic and so hot that I couldn't sleep. The Mattress and pillows were disgusting, old, dirty and brandmarked by the bedbugs. I had bedbugs. It was painful!!! Howard is nice, but it's not worth staying there

This hostel is the place to stay in melaka. The super friendly host makes everyone feel welcome and really shows you the city. Cycling tours, restaurant tours and even tours of the local market made this a super fun place to stay. It was very easy to meet people so a great place to stay if you are a solo...

The beds were old and creaky, mattresses not very clean or thick. It isn't very quiet due to the fans, traffic and mosque. The dorms are small which is nice, bathrooms are basic. Breakfast is just toast. A very personal experience- the owner is really high energy and very sweet. Close enough to the Main Street in Chinatown, but not...

This guesthouse would have to be my number one favourite hostel I stayed in this trip. The atmosphere is amazing. Howard the owner here makes it such a unique experience. When I arrived he introduced me to everyone which was good because I was travelling alone, he also took everyone there on a bike tour to dinner and on the...
