Backpacker's Freak is an absolutely wonderful time that is actually more like a little home than a hostel. Sean is more than friendly and makes a great friend as well. He really cares about your well-being and ensures that you have a good time in the process, as he really seems to know everything about Melaka and what to do there. Ask him any question about what to do in Malaysia or where to go and he doesn't answer like its a chore for him, but as one friend to another. In terms of the hostel, it really is a great place. The rooms are a bit more spacious than other hostels I have stayed at and the place is fairly clean. Sure a bathroom or two smells terrible, but that's life - bathrooms stink, and although they may stink a bit the staff at Backpacker's Freak is up bright and early cleaning away. The floors are nice, the food is good, the coffee is nice, and the people there are great. Nobody is really shy in spreading a word or two so if your a fan of good conversation, whether it is with Sean or the other staff - this is the place to go as well. I really loved my stay there and any time I am in Malaysia in the future I will make sure that I stop by there, I won't forget it. Oh, and it is nice and cheap too and close to all the rad things in that part of the city - including heritage town, jonker street, the light show (a big recommendation!) and many other cool things. It's not too far from the bus station as well (about 20RM) taxi or about an hour long walk, so if your going from Singapore to KL, Melaka is a must stopping point. Stop into Backpacker's Freak and say Hi to Sean and you will suddenly feel like your at home :) Totally rad.
