Chua is fantastic, helped explain the city, encouraged me to not miss the weekend night market on Junker street, flexible and intelligent. If go back to Melaka just to stay at the Old Toen Guesthouse.


Excellent hostel. The hostel it was very relaxed and comfortable to stay in and only a short walk from the main tourist sports.The owner was also incredibly helpful giving us a good overview of what we needed to see and where everything was as well as recommending some great places to eat out and try Melaka's signature dishes. The free toast and jam in the morning were an added bonus as well. Would highly recommend this hostel to anyone looking to stay in Melaka!


Location was very good to see both tourist sites and local sites. The owner gives you a very kind and detail orientation about the city if you want as well as very welcoming for your questions. The guesthouse is very clean and really nicely decorated and maintained. I enjoyed my stay there a lot! Don't think Meleka is just a place for day trip rather stay at Oldtown Guesthouse and enjoy the charm of Melaka! :)


We had an excellent stay in this beautiful hostel. The location was excellent and Chua let us know how to make the most of our stay in Melaka. It was a wonderful and relaxing stay, I highly recommend Old Town Guesthouse.

We had a great time in Melaka! The guesthouse was at a good location to visit the main parts of the city as well as getting to know local peoples life! Rooms and facilities are tidy and the owner is really communicative.


The guesthouse is only a 5-7 min walk from the main attractions, on a quiet street. It is super clean and comfy. The owner was very nice, accomodating and helpful, giving us many tips on what to do and where to eat so we didn't feel lost at all ! Overall great value for money, friendly atmosphere and cool painted rooms.


The owner was a really nice guy. He keeps his property really clean and tidy. It was a very comfortable stay for us. The toilet and shower facilities are really one of the cleanest we have seen in hostels we stayed.

Chua the owner was fantastic! He gave us the most helpful information about what to see and do in Melaka. The hostel was lovely and had a great feel to it, almost like a home from home.


Great guesthouse. Not directly where all the action is. But only 5 minutes away. We had a very pleasant stay.
