The guy picked us up from the main station, offering to take us to town for free if we stayed at his guesthouse for the night. The prices that he told us kept varying, but since we missed the last bus and didn't know where to stay, we agreed. On the way back he drove us around town for about... More

Same story. A guy talked us randomly in at the bus station, because his expected guests, which did not show up. That was already suspicious, but I did not follow my instincts. He was very keen to talk us out of the place we booked for the next 2 nights, but was not keen at all to get to know,... More

This guy pick you up in the bus terminal late and drive you downtown "for free", he shows photos of his hostel, completely different of how really is. The place is really dirty, dark, full of spider webs, toilet door can't be closed, worse matress in my life. Main... More

Price was below what I usually spend so I was a little worried at first. But the name is accurate. I felt like it was my Home away from home. Great home theatre setup. Fast internet. Room great (topmost room with AC, didn't see other rooms). My girlfriend was having back troubles and the Doctor/owner was able to help her... More

I have travelled to a lot of hostels, I am used to not so cozy places....but this one is particularly terrible! The rooms are old and looks like prison cells. Furniture (if you can call a plastic chair a furniture) is broken, linens are dirty and smelly. The shared bathroom has a shower right above the toilet...and the door does... More

The room is old and the receptionist is rude and impolite!!! We booked a family room and already made the full payment after online booking. When we arrived, the receptionist told us that they did not receive any email or payment! (What the hell??!) I showed them the email of my booking and payment and they changed us to another... More

I rather liked this place even though I only stayed for 1 night. Its setup kind of like a home and there are several rooms that are decent. Owner is very helpful although sometimes a little over the top in his friendliness. I think my only real complaint was that the place was kind of far from the points of... More

We were initially greeted at d melaka interchange by a friendly guy who offered us free car ride to his hostel. Along the way, he even became a tour guide, showed and explained the historical aspects of the buildings etc. The hostel was actually not such a bad place. Cosy and homely. However, the 2 of us were given a... More
