Great budget option for Melaka. Central location. Nice communal area for socialising with other travellers. Would recommend to others.


Nice Atmosphere and People


it's nice to hear someone speaking Chinese after suffering three months' southeast Aisa accented English.


Really nice hostel right in Chinatown. Helpful staff and people


Best hostel I've been so far. Very friendly staff and nice location.


good location friendly staff and free bike hire and tea and coffee was great. the dorms could have been cleaner but it was ok no door which wasn't great but lockers were provided with keys.


Nice hostel, cheap and the location is good. I stayed at this hostel twice. I will stay here again if i have holiday in Malacca next.

Thanks for good review


Nice little hostel tucked into a side street a minute's walk away from Jonker Street. The dorm is a bit off-putting at first (no bunk beds makes it kinda feel like a hospital ward), but it makes it much more sociable and comfortable. Each bed has its own fan and power point. Bathrooms downstairs are very clean and the social area in reception is well stocked with books and a TV. Great value for money.


Very relaxed place. I liked it.


Nice place but got bitten by bed bugs on my third night here.


Nice small hostel in the heart of the heritage site. Rooms on the opper floor toilets in the backyard, free coffee or tea. Internet a bit slow and bad connection in the rooms.


Clean, friendly place to stay if you're on a budget.

A great hostel! I have no negative feedback - except maybe the mosquitoes. But the place is pretty open so it has a very chill atmosphere and it's impossible not to have mosquitoes if you have that kind of atmosphere. Definitely would stay here again and would recommend this place to any of my friends!! I think the greatest thing about this place are the staff - they go above and beyond.
