Travellers Planet Hostel
Ranked #13 of 143 Specialty Lodging in Melaka
Reviewed March 5, 2014 via mobile

Really friendly staff, clean and spacious rooms, as much toast, tea and coffee as you want for breakfast (and there is now a toaster, sugar, creamer, butter, jam etc) lovely airy, light common room and great location. Not 5 star but exceeds expectations for the price!

As soon as we got off the bus at Melaka Sentral, George approached us and gave us some info on Travellers Planet. he wasn't forceful, just helpful and friendly. we liked him and so went to the hostel. Travellers Planet is very clean, very relaxed, has fairly comfortable beds and nice big windows in the rooms, and is very reasonably priced. but in our experience, the staff make it special. ana is lovely and a great cook, nash is funny and helpful, and george is very funny and informative. they are all warm and welcoming. we loved travellers planet, and for cheap and clean accommodation, its as good as any hostel we've been to in malaysia. highly recommended! Cheers Travellers Planet, we'll be back! - Seb and D'Arcy

We also were told of this place by meeting someone at the Bus Station when we arrived in Melaka. He gave us a map, told us the pricing so it was an easy option considering we hadn't booked anything ahead. Not luxury, but for NZ $11 per night perfect. Very clean, great staff, free toast for brekky, kitchen available for use at all times, can get laundry done, common room, tea & coffee, great location, friendly, helpful staff, fantastic location. That said, room very small, had fan but still really hot, occasional smell from drains from street, quite noisy, bed broke so ended up on mattress on the floor and low water pressure for showers. Overall good value for cost, and biggie for me was cleanliness.

Room Tip: If you're not getting air conditioning be prepared for hot nights - sleep with a small wet towel...

We met George at the busstation and he told us about this place. We ended up staying here for two nights. It is clean, has a really nice staff and is close to the city center. The only thing we miss is the beach... but very nice place and cheap!

After reading all the 5* reviews, we stayed here for a few nights. Let's keep it real - this is a cheap hostel with average quality. Basically it is priced right for what it is - a hot room up a lot of stairs for 11 bucks a night. The free breakfast is a piece of bread and coffee powder with hot water. Not toast, no jam or butter, no milk, no creamer. This is what you get for 11 dollars in Malaka. Not 5 stars.

We stayed in a fan room on the 3rd floor. It was HOT. We met some people who stayed in Ringo's Foyer for a dollar more with AC and it seemed to have a more lively atmosphere. I would check them out next time.

Room Tip: Go to Pak Putra for awesome tandoori chicken.

The hostel is a few minutes walk from main sights in Melaka. Whilst in an old colonial building, it has a very modern feel with big rooms both fan and ac. We stayed in a fan room, which was very hot but it's south east Asia after all.

Family very welcoming, common area makes it easy to make friends if you are on you own and has free breckfast. It has a real guesthouse feel even though very large, and when we were there people young to old stayed, so do not be put off if you don't like the idea of a "hostel".

Would stay again base don location, value, and service.

Very central family run hostel. We had a private room with ac and wc/sh on the ground floor. We were right next to the front door which was a little noisy ( they did say tHey were changing the doors)
Would def recommend and stay here again!
Also the local food hall on the main road was AMAZING!
