It's pretty much the worst hostel I've ever stayed in my life time, won't get it back to this one anymore.

Great staff and very helpful with lots of tips on Melaka. Good value for money (I had a fan room). Ideal location if you want to visit the historic city center. I liked the atmosphere in their bar as well.

was great to stay here. Like others, the separate stay area across the street is awkward, but it's clean and the beds are comfy. Blankets aren't provided automatically in the dorms, but you can ask for one. Wifi wasn't working when we were there so that was a bummer. Lots of info available.

This was the best choice I could 've made. Very central and very friendly and tremendous valu for money . Lovely complimentary coffee in the mornings.

After looking around town I thought this hostel overpriced. One big disadvantage is that there is no communal area except the cafe across the street.

I stayed in the female dorm. No issue with the dorm but there is a weird sound from the bathroom outside the room. It can be very disturbing when you hear it 3 am in the morning.

Amazing staff! John is extremely knowledgeable and super helpful. About a 10 minute walk to Dutch Square or Chinatown. The have a common area that's great for meeting people. Facilities are pretty basic, but do you really need more than a bed and a shower? Great prices!

Thank you for the great hospitality during our stay. We love to stay in your place, the location is near from the tourist area. They also offer a bicycle rent with only MYR 10 per day.

Nice hostel only 100m from the Melaka's tourist attractions. Stayed in the basic dorm across the road from the cafe thinking this had aircon. The dorm only has fans and was VERY VERY HOT. The dorm did not have a door (but you do have to swipe into the building) so security a bit questionable. Wifi at the hostel was also weak. Cafe food is overpriced but water and beer okay! Free breakfast is great (toast, hot drink). Staff really helpful and friendly. Recommend hostel if you can book aircon room

Initially thought that I'll be staying above the discovery cafe, only to be brought over to the opposite building. Nonetheless, u get what you paid for: a bed and a place to shower:).

I was here for 4 days and my only regret is that i couldn't stay longer. Staff were awesome and always friendly, facilities were decent, breakfast was awesome, and the location could not have been any better. I met some awesome people whilst there and will definately visit again if i'm in the area.
