Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 3, 2011

This guesthouse is definitely highly recommended for budget backpackers as it's just a walking distance to the Jonker street and all historical buildings in Malacca.The owners of the Roof Top Guesthouse,Raymond and Mani are so helpful that they will try to help you wherever you're in trouble.Roof Top Guesthouse will surely be my first choice to stay in whenever I'm going to Malacca again and of course I'll recommend to all my friends too.

The guest house is very clean and although is a walking distance to jonker street it is still a good place to stay for a quite night. Shower, bed are super clean. We surely return for a stay and recommend friends over.

We were recommended the Rooftop guesthouse and we were so lucky that when we arrived they had a spare room! We were only going to stay in Melaka a couple of days but ended up staying 7 and the Rooftop guesthouse had a huge role to play in this decision. Mani and Raymond (the owners) are lovely. We were given an orientation into the activities and foods that were available in Melaka and Mani and Raymond were always there to answer any questions we had and to offer their advice. Door passes we had to enter the building made us feel really secure unlike a lot of guesthouses where you can just walk in off the street. Free tea, coffee and wifi was much welcomed and the cakes and fruit that appeared on the dining room table were such a nice touch. Shared bathrooms were very clean, rooms were nice and the rooftop terrace makes a fantastic getaway from it all on an evening or when the sun gets too hot! Highly recommended.

After being stranded at the Malaysian border by our bus driver we arrived in Melaka, very hot and very tired with nowhere to stay. After stumbling into the 'Roof Top Guest House' we were greeted by the ever helpful Raymond who offered us a cold drink and showed us to a large air/conned private room with 4 large singles (despites the fact there where 3 of us). He also provided us with a detailed map of the town and pointed out all the best places to eat and visit. The room was spacious and very clean, triple the size of lots of the 6 bed dorm room we had shared with other travelers previously. The hostel offers you free tea and coffee, with homemade cake and biscuits. Although there isn't loads of things to do in Melaka it is worth going just to spend a few nights walking around this beautiful town just to stay in this lovely hostel. It is such a pleasure to see how much pride Mani and Raymond take in their hostel and would recommend it to anyone!

It's clean, the owners are great & helpfull, good location, mani who received us upon check in took her time to explain the inns & outs of Melaka. If you are on a budget, don't mind shared bathrooms(which where great; especially the couple shower). This is the place to be..
