Really good location in centre of town. The hostel is clean, as were the shared bathrooms. The staff were friendly, but perhaps not too useful with buses, directions etc. Cute little kitchen with coffee, tea, and biscuits. Main issues: the room was windowless, the walls thin, the floor boards very loud, and the wifi absolutely useless.

We stayed for two nights. Guesthouse is in the heart of Melacca. A queen size bed, a table and a mirror inside the room. That's it, really basic and simple. Shared bathroom. We stayed at downstairs, so have to go up to upstairs if you wish to see the view. Or just request a room upstairs. There is a very... More

The guesthouse is well located close to Dutch Square and Jonker St. Our room was authentic, simple and adequate sized. It contained only a bed and a table. There was aircon and a fan. Towels and coffee sachets were provided. There was only one power point. The walls are thin so corridor and other rooms can be heard in your... More

The guesthouse has a cute lounge overlooking the river. Very reasonably priced, great value for money. Clean bathrooms and friendly staff. There is free tea and biscuits. A second hand book shop is located across the road.

Very strategic location, walking distance to downtown/tourist spots, very clean shared bathrooms, love the common room which located upstairs; it came with a great view & big space to chill out, front door is safe & secured, clean room, strong wifi.

For backpackers, this was great. Excellent value, room was spacious, fan and a.c.. Common area was great place to meet fellow travellers. Location was excellent, walking distance to everything! Family is nice and provides an amazing book on the secrets of Melaka. Bed was the most comfortable bed we have slept on so far.

It is a small, quite and well protected guess house, with the river at the back. The common area/veranda at 2nd floor is very nice, especially looking at the boat cruising along the river at night. The room is very basic, only bed and AC. The share bath room is enough to serve the guess. Cookies, tea, coffee are provided... More
