This was one of the best hostels we stayed in while 9 months of travelling. Everything is very clean and the owner is very friendly and helpful. We would stay there again!


Nice place. The staff was helpful and gave us good advice and help with sight seeing and traveling. Little hard to find if going by bus. Get off the bus when you pass the little round about. The hostel itself had a good atmosphere but not an atmosphere to meet other travelers. They did let us use their stove to warm up some food. The brand of penutbutter was not good very disappointing on the penutbutter.


This is a very comfortable, quiet guesthouse. Pros: Extremely clean, breakfast included, fresh water 24hrs, washing machine on site. Nice communal area. Location: Not in the tourist area, but well located, many cheap eateries nearby, 10 minutes walking to tourist center. Cons: None really. If you are a partier, stay away! For families with children, perfect. We are an older couple, perfect.

very nice and really friendly. the computer could be a little bit faster ;-).


I don't often write reviews so when I do you know it's gotta be either really good or really bad - and this guesthouse might possibly be the best I've ever stayed at in se Asia! The lovely Chau who runs things is uber lovely and helpful and can't do enough for you. The hostel is cosy, comfy, clean and safe and breakfast on top of all that is the cherry on the cake! Slightly away from all the hustle and bustle of Melaka but next door to a YUMMY Chinese! Def recommend this place! STAY HERE! :)


It is a nice place to stay, with a terrific restaurant on the opposite. The owner is very nice, staying at Old Town makes your feels like home.


I had a lovely stay at this guesthouse! Chua was a very kind and helpful host, going out of his way to give suggestions, travel advices and just help in any way he could! The place was very clean, comfortable and well-organized. It's just ten minute walk from Chinatown, in a quieter area where you can actually enjoy a good night sleep. I would definitely stay here again!


Very clean and cool guesthouse. Owner is very very helpful. Nicely located for walking around the main attractions of Melaka. Great library and facilities.


Really liked this hostel. Lots of common areas ideal for chilling out and reading a book. Close to lots of great places to eat (check out capitol satay for awesome satay celup) and breakfast included in the price. Very much a chilled family friendly place, not a party hostel. Lovely.
