I was in home sweet home a few months ago with my girlfriend, and I think it is crucial to make a review after the ones I just read in french. We arrived quite late in Melacca, and the owner (Sunil) was really nice and offered us a lift and a stay. Usually we would have refused an offer like...

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...

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,...

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...

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...

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.
