Booked 3 nights, ended up staying 4! The location and value for money was excellent, also really liked the dorm being single beds and not bunks. But the thing that really made this one of the best hostels I've stayed in was the chilled vibe and the daily food/activity trips with Lee and other guests to places I wouldn't have seen otherwise. Thanks for a great time!
Jalan Jalan was a wonderful guesthouse to stay at. The location and staff are great and the price really can't be better.
Really enjoyed my stay at Jalan Jalan! As a solo traveller is was great to meet new people made easier with group outings organised each day which are good fun - many of these are local spots you would probably miss. A great location too and a nice atmosphere.
Jalan-Jalan has a great staff and super friendly atmosphere. They led daily outings to various districts, bars and restaurants. Thanks to the staff I had a lot of great inexpensive food and got a great introduction to Melaka. The hostel area can be noisy especially with the nearby mosque broadcasting prayer's several times per day, including very early in morning. The air conditioned dorm in the other (non-emas) wing was quieter.

Great hostel with lovely staff. In the evening Lee is always organising an food trip to a good and cheap restaurant or market. Very good way to eat cheap and meet people from the hostel!
I have not a single bad word to say about this hostel! It's insanely cheap and has possibly the best and most chilled atmosphere of any hostel I've been in. Lee really makes the hostel like your mini family for however long you're staying in Melaka, he shows you amazing local places to eat and drink so you really get a sense of what Melaka is about. Wifi good, beds comfy, toilets/showers clean what more do you need? Book it.
YES. I have been hostel-ing for 9 years & my stay at Jalan-Jalan was one of the loveliest. The hostel is both charming & a bit dingy, 'shabby chic' if you will, w/ excellent value for private rooms w/ fan & mossie net. Strong WIFI, hot water. But that's not the highlight - it's the social atmosphere. LOVED Lee's 'Dinner Club' - 1st night, went to a night market with the whole hostel. Immediately welcoming & friendly place - they really make a point to build community here. WOULD DEF. RECOMMEND.
Was only meant to stay for 2nights ended up there a week! Great hostel with great people and great staff! I would recommend to anyone. Thanks victor and lee for the awsome stay hopefully be back sometime!
Jalan jalan was a great hostel for meeting people. Everyone was friendly and welcoming and the staff want everyone to get involved. There's a dinner club where Lee arranges everyone to go out for meals together. Malacca is a lovely city, would recommend
Great hostel right in the middle of KL, within walking distance of all the things to see, and real close to a monorail station. Staff great, atmosphere was top, clean and security can't be knocked. Would definitely stay again
Absolutely loved my stay at jalan jalan, in all the time I've been travelling I haven't stayed in a hostel with such a good atmosphere and togetherness! Dinner club is such a good idea and a great way to meet people, will definitely be recommending jalan jalan to others :)
We had a wonderful time at Jalan-Jalan and would have loved to have stayed for longer. There was a friendly welcoming atmosphere from the moment we arrived. The staff were helpful and we especially liked the dinner club idea which united everyone staying at the hostel. The dorm room was clean with all the essentIal things for a comfy stay. Great value for money too. Thank you for helping make our stay in Melaka a memorable one.

This place is the best kept secret! Went to stay 2 nights ended up staying a week. Everyone who booked in extended their stay. Great people, awesome environment, clean facilities. Couldnt recommend this place more.
Very nice hostel in the center of the old town. Lots of places to eat and shop near by. Private room needs a new mosquito net, but luckily we had our own with us. Room has a fan, but it's still a bit hot to sleep, you get used to it after a few nights. Staff is doing a great job at the hostel. We recommend the hostel for everyone! P.s. Thanks Lee, you made it even better!
