A very nice hostel. The wifi was sometimes not perfect but works well always near reception. The rooftop is very pretty and staff are very friendly. Very secure and i was upgraded to a twin room instead of a dorm so i had a very comfortable stay.


People are nice and the place is okay. There was just some things about the place I thought were a bit stingy and ridiculous such as the book exchange being two for one and the fact that they charge 10 RM for you to use the shower after check out. That is ridiculous.


Stayed for one night. Was cheaper than another guest house close by but this hostel was better as they had air con in the dorm, place looked nicer and good facilities. Chilled atmosphere good price


Helpful staff, nice and quiet location


Great welcoming staff. Good location, easy accessible and very central. Nice terrace. Double rooms have no windows. Maps provided are just a photocopy so you better get a proper one from the turist info point. Good value for money.


We liked everything about the hostel.it was quiet, well located,nice people and value for money.

Spend two nights in the double bedroom with bathroom enquire, room was ok, air con and fan working very well! Facilities were nice, staff friendly! Only there was no storage room provided, so that we had to leave luggagge in the lounge area after check out which didn't feel very safe.. Overall nice stay and quiet convenient location!


It was hard yo get hold of the staff. You had to check in somwehere else. The room was clean, the facilities ok.

Rooftop is nice place to stay when in Melaka and provides really affordable rates specailly for those travelling on a shoestring budget. They will also provide you a map containing the where-to's and what-to-do's.

Not a very nice hostel in my opinion but unfortunately in Melaka there are not a lot of options. Weird smell in the rooms, stains on the sheets. Location of course very good and beds quite comfy. Most of the time there is no staff around.


My stay was great! such a lovely place. :)


Very nice place to stay and value for money. It is located near Dutch Square, Melaka river, and Jonker street (which unfortunately it was closed when we were there). Definitely will come back here and recommend it to our friends :)


Nice hostel in a good location, would recommend to a friend :)


The AC was on but didn't cool at all so it was even hotter than outside. There were no moskito nets, so i got a lot of bites since it was impossible to cover under the blancet because of the heat. Also, it was really loud at night and the bathrooms weren't that clean. It is easy to find and not far from the city center. But because of the inconveniences I wouldn't go there again.


Good value for money, lovely guesthouse with very comfortable beds! Rooms and bathroom area always clean. Great selection on films to watch downstaires too! Owners are usually in the cafe just over the road but where very helpful at the beginning so didn't need to see them again. Nothing negative to say and we would definately stay ere again.


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.


Nice little guesthouse, but only has one dorm room with 4 beds in. But the beds so are so comfy and the room is big with loads of space. Has a nice little roof top area and the roof top shower is SO nice! Great place


Great location, great balcony..thank you....
