The dorm is actually in a different building a block away from the cafe, just a few minutes walk though. 5 minutes away from jonker street and other tourist attraction.


I cannot find another hostel who can be as clean and tidy than discovery. Allen is really helpful.


Overall good. The air-con is cold enough and 3 Bed Private got a toilet inside the room. The only problem is, the floor is too noisy (wood material) so i cant sleep well after people start moving early in the morning.


Great few nights spent here. Alan who works here was very helpful and a really nice man.

Really nice Hostel. First a Little bit strange because it's in a backyard but inside its nice and very clean. Female 4 bed dorm is pretty small and dark but fine. Nice little room downstairs where everyone can meet and where Alan, the owner is. He's really nice. Malacca is not. Big city so you can walk by feet and the hostel is near the market and the red place


good location, can walk to interesting place in Malacca

Location near most of the most famous spots in the city, but because the building I stayed was in a small lane (although the lane near a big road), I felt a little uncomfortable when going back at night. There no many people in the social room that day so I was a little bored at night. Staff are really good and reminded and advised a lot. Should take slow steps because the floor made noise.


Amazing hostel for a cheap get away in Malacca! Staff at the hostel and the Cafe were attentive and couldn't do enough to help. Looking to stay again in the future!

Allan, the one who manages the hostel is really helpful and very particular when it comes to cleanliness. Air condition in my room is really cold. I feel safe staying at this hostel.
