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.
As a lone traveler, I hated this hostel. There was nobody to talk to, I felt uncomfortable in Malaysia. First time in 11 months I have felt homesick. The owner I found rude and patronizing and sometimes made me feel uncomfortable. Hos wife was so lovely though. My room had one fan which was extremely hot, breakfast was basic however the hostel was clean and there was a computer which you could use and free wifi. Perhaps better for couples travelling.
Old Town Guest House feels like home! The owner is very helpful and friendly. We felt welcomed at his place. It is located just 10 minutes walking distance to the main attractions. Good place also for kids. We can recommend this place to everyone!
The owner was extremely helpful and friendly throughout our stay, even calling a taxi and helping us with our bags on our last day. The hostel was clean and very secure. You instantly feel at home here, there is a great chill out area and there are some wonderful paintings in the kitchen. It is only about a 5-10 minute walk to town and there are some good places to eat just outside the hostel; we would definitely recommend this place to anyone.
