Nice guesthouse, very loud traffic on the street though.

Lovely guesthouse, good located and nice atmosphere. It's a guesthouse and not hotel, so expect the host to be there all the time, but they'll be at their cafe or you can call them! Perfect stay! Thanks :)

A nice hostel with a great little balcony overlooking the river. Location was perfect and everything was within walking distance!

Had a double room at the front of the house which was noisy at night with the beeping of scooters and taxis. A nice AC room in a world heritage site but is 10 minute walk to the main Dutch square

Amazing location! Hanging out on the upstairs patio overlooking the river is serene. We would stay again. The rooms do have thin walls and stains like some of the other reviews mentioned but for the price we paid for a private room, I'd take thin walls over a dorm anytime.

Good hostel overall, basic & quiet. Bad grade for the cleanliness thought; rude/dirty guests left their hair in the showers upstairs - and surprisingly! the hair was still there the day after, in the afternoon! The staff should clean the showers several times a day. There only three so it is not an heavy task.

Our choice of hostel was over booked so we were moved to rooftop (sister property) but upgraded and the staff were very thin on the ground. Many past reviews talk of the owners hospitality and cooking, especially baked goodies. However with expansion (2x guest houses & a cafe) some of the old attractions have been lost. However great location and super value, just not as good as it once was.

The hostel has two main advantages: it is extremely well located and it has an amazing balcony (sofas, plants and great view). However, the staff doesn't really speak English and the toilets/showers are very crude and could use some improvements.

The hostel is really nice, located by just by the river. It has a beautiful twrrace facing the river. We really enjoyed our stay there. The only thing that bothered us was the smell in our room.

A charming hostel with good staff. It is well above average but see the room you're getting. Bathroom was fine. Kitchen could be better equipped. Free clean drinking water. Great location but the walls of my room were covered with mold. It definitely needs to be painted immediately. I had an allergic reaction and forfeited two paid nights in order to not breathe any more mold. I did not see any other rooms but the mold problem needs to be addressed. Otherwise I definitely recommend it.

Great, cozy place to stay at when you're in Melaka! We loved it there! The people are great, rooms are ok, the house is really nice and the terrace with the riverview is amazing.

it need´s paint and new beds to become a nice place; the atmosphere of this old house is fine; the bathrooms are absolute below standard; in fact, you get what u paid for
