Good location and cool rooftop gardens to chill in. Staff was unfriendly and unreceptive, didn't say a word the whole time. The A/C in our room didn't work at all and there were ants all over the floor. We didn't enjoy our experience and moved to a different hostel before leaving Melaka.

It's close to the tourist area, clean, the rooftop is nice. No complaints here! The young guy that works here was fantastic. Very nice and helpful.

It's a very nice hostel, situated in the middle of chinatown. The staff was very friendly and it was always kept clean. Big House and nice cake ! Perfect to chill out, I would stay there again.

Great locations. Shower and toilet facilities could have been cleaner. rooms good although very noisy. They really need to patrol / have staff present at the hostel (we only saw staff member once) as there are people showering and blow drying hair at 1am in the morning! More signs / stricter in that sense is needed.

Happened to stay in dorm bed (cheap)( but not hostel's fault although I feedback to staff) where a guy ' insist' aircon to be off (claiming health benefit but to the discomfort to other 3 in the room who did not want to challenge his 'right to no Aircon') esp if he is drunk. But when tried clarifying with him, he is so opinionated and defensive -in the limited English, if I understand, said the norm is no air con -if you insist aircon, stay in private. In other words, default right -no aircon.

Guesthouse with one four bed dorm. Not the atmosphere I expected. While solid location, you can find better options in terms of social interactions. Staff are based at a restaurant down the street.

can't complain, this place was great to stay in and the room was top notch, on the door step of all the fun too, the roof top was cool and the place had a fun chill out vibe as well as free cake and fruit in the common area

We spent 4 Nights on this guest house. All was very good, Raymond is very welcoming and Nice. The guest house, with a very good location, is clean and the bedrooms are comfortable. I strongly recommend roof top guest house for your trips in Melaka.

Good location, friendly staff. Not the best place to socialize, but it's ok for a short stay. No hot water in showers, but anyways who needs that:) next time I will try the prettier sister of this hostel, which is owned by the same people, by the river and has a restaurant.

Staff made the stay very enjoyable, they were very friendly and helpful. The place was clean and had a good rooftop to chill on.

good hostel. nothing really special. but very comfortable to stay. have big common area. so you can hang out there during daytime heat. have regular beds in dorm rooms. so no one will disturb you at night. easy to get around from here. located in china town.

An average, nice guesthouse, yet a bit overrated. They also run a very good cheap cafe 3 mins down the road, although this also functions as the reception so staff are rarely in the guesthouse.

Beds in the private rooms were very wide and, according to me, very comfortable. The AC was working fine as soon as we set it to cooling instead of heating, which we had turned on by mistake. As it goes for sound-proofing a bit more could have been needed, one could hear quite well what happened in the stairs outside. The room and the linen provided seemed clean.There were a bunch of ants in the shower/toilet area, but they didn't disturb me at all. Overall a good experience for my first hostel!

It was my first time ever staying in a hostel, and it gave me such a good impression. The place is clean, the bed is so comfortable, the bathroom is small but it's clean. It's quite close to the jonker street as well. I would definitely stay here again.
