A fantastic place to stay during our time in Melacca. The rooms are basic, but are set in a beautiful old house with a stunning terrace with river view. The home made cake on offer in the afternoon was delicious! We would stay here again!

Lovely hostel in safe area. Clean, comfy and excellent tasty free cake. Staff very helpful .. Place is often full as a result of good reviews so try to book in advance, especially if arriving at the weekend. There was a common area - I'm travelling alone - so would have been nice to meet people but no-one ever hung out there. So was a little lacking in atmos. But other than that - a great stay and would recommend. Not much to do in Melaka. So would only stay 2 nights max.


Stay with 3 others friend here last week. The river view from ground and second floor was amazing!! (We spent most of our night time hanging out on the deck) And thanks for the delicious cakes. I think we gain weight after this trip. 😁 Somehow, the housekeeper was not really nice. Maybe she was on bad mood the day we checked in. If you are looking for a cozy, classic stay, this hostel will be perfect for you

Rooms - walls are 'thin' & guests chatting in next room can be heard. Guests who stayed in the room next to mine were inconsiderate & chatted till 12 midnight.
