My friend recommended this place. Staff mostly volunteers on work exchange, easy to chat to & hang out with over beers, gave advice about travelling in Asia, & had been in Melaka for a while so knew things locals knew. Lee runs a nightly dinner club, & a charity making bags. Has everything you need - laundry service 8RM/load (no machine dry), city maps, internet, printing, free tea, bike hire, small lockers in the big dorm upstairs. No A/C but each bed gets a fan. Prepare for mosquitoes!
Bicycle rental for the entire stay is only 5RM; every night at 7pm people are invited to join in and go and eat at a local inexpensive restaurant. Each bed in the dorm has a big fan at the foot end. Personally I would prefer a ceiling fan or one that is less aggressive than the provided fan at level one. But with the provided blanket it is OK. Staff, especially Peter, have great knowledge of Melaka and beyond.
Very cute small town hostel with the essential facilities. Nice community. Dinner date every day where you'll be taken to a restaurant near by that serves delicious food for basically no money. Can get noisy at times (market street and mosque near by) but overall a great experience.
