Hostel was overall great, close to the Jonker Street Market, but far enough away from the main tourist attractions to ensure the evenings were quieter that places on the main backpacker drag. Easy walking distance from most of Melaka's prime attractions. Upon arrival the staff was underwhelming, but they quickly grew on us. Deserving of honourable mention in Lonley Planet.

I love Roof Top Hostel so much !!! I'm sure that i will stay at the same hostel again when i visit Melaka next time . the toilet is clean, and the dorm is comfortable , price is cheap which can affordable by students. i feel like staying at my own house when i stay at this hostel , so COMFORTABLE ! the most beautiful is the roof top area! it is a great place for us to chat at night , feel the fresh air and see the night sight of Melaka. Thank you Mani n Raymond

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 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

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.
