I was in the single room on the top floor for 3 nights. I loved: The location was excellent. Loved the rooftop - a nice place to have a quiet beer while overlooking the river. Discounts on drinks good. Staff friendly and helpful. Not so great: Bed was very hard. The light was positioned behind the fan giving a 'strobe' effect when both were on. The air-con occasionally spat water down onto the bed - not good if you are using electronics. Loud covers band plays until after midnight sometimes.


A minimal but friendly place. Enjoyed my stay there. The guests and staff are good folk.


Make sure that your dorm has AC before booking because every dorm don't have it. Good value for money, located near everything you need to see (except the main Mosquee which is far from downtown. Cleanliness could be improved but once again you have what you paid for.


couldn't ask for more from a budget friendly accomodation but what makes them stand out is how the staff takes care of their guest! good job guys! all the best!

Real value for money. Near the town center where all you need to see is. Clean toilets but the common area going to it could be a bit messy. The beds are comfortable enough and the cafe is a good place to have a nice drink with fellow backpackers. :)


Extremely helpful staff, very friendly. Hostel located a few minutes from main attractions, easy to travel around.

Good location close to where the bus drops you off from sentral. Close to all the sights and near to restaurants etc. Clean bathrooms and nice warm showers. Staff were friendly and helpful with onward plans. Stayed in the female dorm. Only ons other girl in there. Think it would have been a tight squeeze if there had been 4 of us but there are lockers in the hallway which would help.


Nice friendly central hostel.


Nice hostel in very good location. Almost everything is in walking distance and the price is right for Backpackers.


Overall it was a pretty good hostel, the staff were fantastic with a great sense of humour, and suggestions for everything. The location was great, walking distance to almost everything. Only two bathrooms per floor, so managing to grab when when you needed it was a bit difficult, especially in the mornings. Cleanliness was mostly good.


nice location and kindly staff ever but wifi too slow and the room quite dirty. however all is good :))


The hostal is located super conveniently right next to the sightseeing areas and so close to The Stadthuys, the beds are so confy and the caffee is really nice :)


Oh man, this hostel was terrible. It's run by cafe/restaurant owners, so you really have to question their priorities. Obviously it wasn't in their guests. I stayed in the AC-less 8 bed dorm because there was no AC male dorm, and it unbearable. It was extremely hot even with the 5 fans {mind you, this was in May} and the beds were very creaky - it was even hotter than outside. Moreover, the internet is really bad and the corridors are really smelly. The S. African worker was weird.


It's alright, great atmosphere and relaxing.


Nice staff. Was a helpful night over as I needed to take a very early train.


I stayed for one night only at dorm, it was a good deal for me, the location was great..its very easy to find this hostel since the building was very catchy that you wont miss it..the staff was friendly..they even gave me a map and advice to explore melacca, they also have so many electric socket so you can easily charge your handphone ;)


I really loved the staff, they were amazing! I've seen nicer facilities, but only payed 3 euro for a bed in the dorm. Very good price with nice people.


I enjoyed staying there very much, the staff were very helpful and lovely people to talk to. Location is good, near joker area and famous churches. Their breakfast is simple but satisfying given that its free. :) Would love to stay there again!

Awesome location and place to stay for cheap, staff was really friendly. We booked the wrong day by accident and they were very accomodating about it. WiFi was slow, but that was the only issue.


Good hostel in a right location. Breakfast included and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The other Hostel mostly not provide the breakfast.
