Almost attractions in Melaka is near to each other so the location is not so important. The hostel is have river view, cool and romantic. The service is good, share bathroom and kitchen, no laundry and renting bike service but you can find near there. The staff is friendly, wifi is free, strong.

Stayed at River One Residence couple of times & they are always our choice of hostel as we feel very much at ease & welcome during our stay. The whole set up is very homely & fuss-free. Clean, safe, comfortable, convenient & affordable- everything checked in the backpacker/ holiday maker's wish list.
