When my girlfriend and I arrived there and saw the restored shop fronts, we knew we were in for a treat. The hostel is simple yet has anything and traveller needs. The thing we loved the most was it had the 'homey' feelings that we had missed since we set off for our travels. The owners, Mani and Raymond were the nicest hosts and went out of their way to help us plan our time in Melaka and ensure that we enjoyed ourselves there; suggestions on what to see, places to eat, how to get where, they were only to happy to help.
Being on the renovated River's Edge was an added bonus, making it easy to reach the Red Square without having to dodge the traffic. The bathrooms are shared but i never found myself waiting for them since the ratio of these to people staying is just right.
Next time my girl friend and i are in Melaka, we will definitely search for this hostel first; our Home away from Home :)
