I emailed ahead to say I was going to be checking in late, but apparently they have two email accounts. There is a sign on the door (permanently) saying the receptionist has stepped out for 15-20 minutes. The receptionist left me outside with my backpack for a full ten minutes at 11:30 pm, watching me on their security camera, before someone else let me in. When I did get let in they checked me in and everything was fine but if reception is closed, indicate it at the door.
Pro: good location. Secure. Cons: Incompetent and weird staff. Seemed cheap to turn off the AC often. Yellow pillows, A lot of CCTV in the facilities. No working fridge. No working computer. No atmosphere. The location is super and it's cheap which is good and I would say you could stay here one night. But not for long or if you want to meet fellow travellers. The indian guy at the reception was also quite weird and did not seem to know anything of Malacca.
Shravan was really helpful in everything! Very good host!
I had an enjoyable stay. Was a good value and the staff was very helpful and friendly.
pro : good location,close to jonker street cheap cons : bed not comfortable no reading light

There is a fun vibe about the place when u meet strangers and a fun with the staff too....the hostel is overall good and i will be recomending to my friends if they go to malacca and its clean with a good wifi and to be simply saying i just "LOVE IT"
