“hole of the worst kind”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2011

Pirate Park is up 2 floors via a tiny stairway,above a cafe where strange men leer at tourists and past the owners floor where she hangs up the laundry. The hostel itself is down an alleyway on the wrong side of the river in a filthy part of town full mostly of empty lots. it is nowhere near the bustle of Melaka and certainly not centrally located. IT is named for the defunct pirate ship ride that sits dormant on the riverside. This place is so bad that even the cab drivers at the long-range bus terminal had never heard of it and couldnt find it.
The bathroom has not light and is filthy, does not flush and has a bucket of dirty water and a stick for your convenience. the shower comes in the form of the bidet nozzle. no towels, paper or indeed blankets. the room was one of 5 small rooms with little more than a mattress, a wide open window and a fan that made so much noise it was amazing.
Please go to a more central and better appointed place than this. the price may be applealing but for the same you can go anywhere. We left after about an hour to find somewhere else and found Melaka to be full of options.
