This hostel stated it was non-smoking, yet each room stank of cigarettes. All the "clean" laundry was clearly not washed and also had a strong smell of tobacco. The showers and taps did not work and the air conditioning was average at best. It is not in a good location for main Melaka attractions and is far too expensive for what you actually get. It's noisy, smelly and rundown. I do not recommend this place.
