Great hostel, all the places you'd like to visit are at walking distance. The mixed dorm has 4 beds in a really big room with comfortable beds, lockers are present in the room as well. A nice rooftop garden with a really pleasant vibe, perfect to just relax after a long day of touring.
Great location, great balcony..thank you....

Gorgeous little spot in the middle of the old town with the perfect home away from home kinda feeling. The little garden shower is a nice touch to an already super cute rooftop area. Spacious dorm with probably one of the most comfortable beds I've slept in during my four years of backpacking! Individual lights, outlets, hangers, bedside tables and lookers. Highly recommended! Enjoy your stay!
Great location and comfy hostel. Didn't see any of these ants people are talking about, but there was a slight smell, not in the dorms though. Was quite empty when we were there so can't comment on the atmosphere, but I'd definelty recommend and stay here again.
Very nice hostel. Only small thing is I cant book through website for a share bedroom even its free so I had to pay more for a private room and found out next day that shared room was so free
I really love here. if i come back to Melaka, i 'll stay here again
Hostel owner (Raymond) was extremely helpful when we checked in telling us all about malacca. The hostel has a good location, just 2 mins walk to jonker street and beside the river! Great out door shower that was just the right temperature of cool! :)
This hostel was terrible, we arrive after pre booking to be told there has been a mistake and they have no room for us. We go to another hostel and stay there for a night with no apologies from the staff. The staff are never present and you have to walk down the road to find anyone. The bathrooms are dirty with hair everywhere and very small. The rooms are mediocre and lacking in power points. Overall would not stay here again, unclean and unfriendly.
is way cheaper than i thought location is very good
Cozy and perfekt place as a base for dicovering melaka
Really enjoyed my stay here. The staff were always available in the cafe down the road that is under the same ownership. They were desperate to help at any opportunity and such nice people. The rooms were spacious with large, comfortable beds and big lockers. The roof top terrace was a great place to spend an evening with a drink and also a good viewing area for the incredible thunderstorms when they occur.
Charming, spacious, comfortable, however BIG wifi probs, owner has a cafe across the road with desktop that works, perhaps should install a couple in house
One of the showers wasn't working too well (second floor, the one to the right). Everything else, the staff, the room was great.
Expected better from the ratings. As mentioned, there were ants everywhere: toilets, dining table, walls, even one or two stray ones in the room. Mosquitoes in room 3 too. Staff were never around. The only thing I can recommend is the location, but there are plenty of hostels or hotels nearby with comparable location and price. If you want a basic no fringe hostel at a low price, this is for you. If you expect a hostelworld rating of 80+%, you might be disappointed like me.
It's a good hostel near Chinatown (which I prefer than the city centre). It's mostly clean (you can always find something) and the toilets including the showers are ok. The guy that let us in was a bit strange but not rude. Over all I'd recommend it.
The guesthouse have the almost perfect location where you can actually walk around all the place of attractions during the day, yet to have the suitable atmosphere at night to get some good rest. All basic facilities provided in good shape, and guesthouse floor quite clean indeed. The living room quite warm so might be a good idea if there's aircond to get some chill and a short rest before continue to explore there. Will definitely get back here for another trip in Melaka.

I got there and there was no staff anywhere to be found. I was locked out in the blistering sun for an hour. I was put in the 4 bed dorm and they placed me and an elderly man 1 meter from each other and there were 2 empty beds available 6 meters away across the room. The staff was incompetent and unfriendly. The bathrooms were disgusting and full of ants. Like the most ants I've ever seen. I never saw any staff cleaning. Don't stay here.
Very nice rooms and great location. Thanks so much for the hospitality.
I stayed two nights at roofrop guest house and it's a comfortable relax hostel. Facilities are good and clean. Wifi works good to. It's a good atmosphere. I had my dinner in the riverview cafe and it was verry tasteful, good place to eat.
Good and quiet location with just a short walk to jonker street. Aircon seems to be leaking onto bed and staining the sheets. Other then that, facillities are relatively adequate for the pricing. Staff are warm and friendly.
