The place is near the jonker street. The staff are very accommodating and helpful most especially the caretaker(I think he's the caretaker). He helps us a lot with our questions and he is very friendly. The place I rent out is a singe room but the bed is queen size. It is big enough for two people. There's a balcony on the second floor and when you come out from the back door, the river is right in front of you.

Great guesthouse in the heart of downtown Melaka. Friendly staff, great atmosphere and clean and functional shared facilities. Not a party place but a very cool, traveller chilled out vibe with the opportunity to chat to fellow guests. Practical kitchen to store beer, snacks and enjoy in the evening on the communal balcony. Melaka is a gem of a place which truly represents a by-gone era. Go now before this old-world charm disappears. Would definitely stay here again. Thank you for a great stay!

Nice and quiet place. It's a building with traditional architecture.

Great workaway staff. Terrible location. Locals and tourists alike like to rev their mopeds and motorcycles while traversing the road the hostel is located at. This happens at all hours during the night, making it very difficult to sleep or stay asleep at times. The room I stayed at had flaking plaster walls and a very thin mattress, but then again you get what you paid for. The free dessert was pretty awesome though.

Nice located places, good staff, secured access. You will enjoy the common space. Price is good, recommended if you not bothered by age of the building.

Beautiful hostel in a great location by the river. Loved the traditional features & beautiful balcony with river views. It is conveniently located as you can easily walk everywhere from the hostel. The hostel is locked at all times but guests are issued with a key & a code which makes it very secure. The only cons are the rooms. They are basic and bare (I stayed in a twin room) and dont reflect the level of effort put in the decor of the common areas. The street noise may be an issue for some.

Could have been better, and was expecting more based on the other reviews. Really this was a convenient location for exploring Melaka and decent 'charm', but we only had one interaction with staff when we checked in where we had to fill in a lot of personal information in a public registration book (think home address, ID number, etc). Room was large, aircon was there but hardly functional, toilets/bathrooms were 'rustic' at best but really unsanitary with toilet hoses leaking water on the f

Lush riverside location with gorgeous balcony. Old house but very clean with quiet atmosphere. Staff always in the cafe a few doors down but volunteers available to help. Handy maps given and free cake in the kitchen! Really clean and good location, not too far from main centre.

Lovely hostel - nice location not too far from the centre, pretty place with nice rooms, the member of staff at reception was great - booking taxis, recommending things to do and giving directions. However there was absolutely no atmosphere at all, definitely not somewhere to go if you want to meet people.

Location is very good and accessible. Staff were okay. Common areas especially the balcony were quite good and clean. Shared bathrooms were clean too. A/C wasn't working when I was there so I had to use the ceiling fan. Room smelled like sick grandma's room and the bed linens were super old, stinky and dirty that I wasn't able to sleep well.
