Having just stayed at the Fernloft in Singapore and having a less than adequate experience, our expectations for the Melaka hostel were not high. Upon arrival we were shown to our private double room which was very basic, worn, hot and humid, but didn't feel as bad as the Singapore version as it was less than three times the price.... More

Chosen to stay here because of the price and location but the environment was a bit creepy to be honest. Bed linen has got some blood stains and the wall was not very clean. Bathroom and toilet weren't very pleasant to be used as well. No hot shower as well. Overall rate for cleanliness is 1/5. Yes, it was just... More

I stayed here for one night (one night too many!) in the dorm and woke up with BED BUG BITES EVERYWHERE. I will attach pictures so you can see why you should not stay here! Toilet stank of urine - combination of residents' poor aim and hostel's lack of cleaning and there was a worm crawled on me in the... More

The hostel was clean and staff were helpful, he tried to help any guests to provide the information about Mellaca. Moreover, I can get a lot of new friends there and where can strangers become a friend. I think the best accommodation to stay is this guesthouse. The location is very very nice that is near the center of Jonker... More

This hostel was very clean and staff were helpful and also can make a good friend. It's worth for you to stay here. I stayed here for 3 nights, I was really happy to stay here. Location was very good in the Jonker walk street, just 2-3 minutes by walking. It's very easy to roam around Mellaca.

PROS: Excellent security with two doors requiring a scan card to get in. And location is right in the old town, steps away from the night market and stadthuys. CONS: The lady running the place wasn't the friendliest, only answered questions when asked. When I stayed, there were very few other guests so there wasn't much of an atmosphere. The... More

Dont stay in the 16 bed dorm if you dont wanna get bitten a hundred times by bed bugs in one night. They have even bitten me in my face and my whole upper body was covered in bites, altough I was sleeping in an insect shield. When I told the receptionist the next morning, he just told me that...

Cozy little place conveniently located near Chinatown, The Stadthuys and also the river. Therefore it is near most attractions and food places as well. And the common area has aircon! The 16 beds dorm may seemed a little crowded but during weekdays at low season, there were only just a few guests. Thus you have a big room with plenty... More

Great location but no sleep. Noisy guests with thin walls. No duvet, just the cover. Bed bugs biting me. Stained bedding. Room was very very basic. Glad we only stayed one night. Staff were nice enough and helped with taxi and early departure. Showers were good.
