I had a really good time at this hostel. Great location close to Jonker St and easy to walk to all of Melaka's main attractions. The common areas in both hostels are really great places to meet fellow travelers. I'd stay again!

Planned to stay 2 nights but ended up staying for a week. The guesthouse (and Melaka) was just the perfect place for me to recharge. It was quiet, clean and conveniently located.

I went there with my girlfriend. The room was good and clean. However, the staff was invisible and we were totally on our own for advises or anything. The place is right inside Chinatown, easy to find.

Warning: not suitable for who has no experience with hostels! As well as those are born to be moving taget for mosquitoes (like me). Very basic but quite worth for the money considering the location. If you are looking for something like home then this is the wrong place, but a lovely shutter in those black-and-white pictures. daff are very friendly and helpful, shower and wifi is good. No cold drinking water provided but there is a small fridge so you can put your own drink there.

Very basic but very cheap accommodation which does include hot showers. Dorms are small but functional and there are lockers. WiFi was pretty slow. For the price though it is well equipped and if on a budget I would stay here again. Staff were friendly and courteous.

For a RM19/day dorm it was really good value for money. Clean, free coffee/tea, met new friends and good WiFi, couldn't ask for more.

My friend and I booked a private room. The toilet in this room did not flush properly. They shower had fungal growth in it. Upon arrival at the hostel we rang the door bell many times and no one answered the door. It took about 20min before someone showed up saying they were helping another guest to get a taxi, not much apology was given. No sign on the door or contact number was left to say: "back in xx min".
