A 4 night stay here, a really cool, quiet place. Chua was really helpful, writing down in Malaysian allergy info for local restaurants for me and my girlfriend. He was really informative about Melaka and a good laugh. The guesthouse is quiet, even when groups are here, so not a party place. Clean, decent breakfast, and nice and open planned so good for just relaxing. Would definitely stay again. No aircon, but plenty of fans around so nothing too major to worry about. Excellent.


Very kind host, we had a lot of interesting discutions and he gave us a lot of good tips for having a perfect stay in Melaka! Thanks for all !!! The accommodation was just perfect!


This is one of our favorite places we have stayed so far. Sometimes there is music playing mid afternoon which fills the hangout area. It makes you imagine you've.stepped back in time moment. Starting from the entry, the guesthouse is painted with murals. Which really livens up the vibe. The rooms and bathrooms are alwa clean. The owners are extremely wonderful. They are helpful but not pushy. They have great recommendations for places to eat, see and do. We definitely recommend it!


One of the best hostels we've stayed in while travelling through Asia. The owner is so helpful, generous and funny. The rooms are okay, depending on the one you choose but the common rooms are pretty nice and spacious. The location is good because there aren't to many tourists but you can reach all the touristic spots within walking distance. Breakfast is fine and erverthing is very clean. Good price value. Thanks for everything


The Old Town Guest House is a beautifully clean and comfortable hostel with a very helpful owner and a nice living space. Highly recommended.


We really enjoyed our stay here and felt completely at home. The hostel is clean, spacious, has a number of bathrooms, sinks and showers, good air-con and a basic breakfast. However, what really made our stay was the owner, who was probably one of the most genuine guys we've met on our year long travels - friendly, honest, full of good recommendations and with a dry sense of humour. Thank you. P.S. Eat at the Chinese coffee shop over the road, it's great value and really tasty.


Very enjoyable stay in the hostel. Thanks for the owner's hospitality.


I really enjoyed our stay at Old Town Guest House. The service was very friendly and helpful. The only negative point is the low quality of the overly soft mattresses; my back ached after a few hours of sleep.


Very cosy guesthouse with nice common area, lovely staff, very clean room and bathrooms, location is good (5-10min walk to riverfront and night market).


Nice place, decent location and an incredibly helpful owner. Highly recommended.
