To put it quite simply; this hostel feels like home. Sean, the owner instantly made us feel welcome and gave us a great guide of where to go around Melaka.
The hostel itself is made up of 4 bed dorms (yes, four beds, basically a hotel room!) and a couple of doubles/singles, a kitchen (you can pop down to the supermarket and cook your own meals, so cheap and a nice reminder of home!) and a living room/lounge area, complete with television and extensive DVD collection.
Oh, and, there are hamsters and bunny rabbits. Which you can play with. pretty much sealed the deal for me.
Sean's sister Ashley made a visit while we there also, and she is very friendly and was running a hostel in KL so we ended up staying there to, ask Sean for a business card!!
Brilliant hostel, we loved it.
