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.


Nice, well located hotel, in Chinatown. The staff is helpful except that the cab they booked to drive us to the train station never showed up...


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.


Just perfect


Great place! I had a very pleasant stay at the rooftop guest house. It's was clean with the necessary facilities. The rooftop was small but great for a chill out in the afternoon. Loved the free cake and would stay there again.


The hostel is in a nice location, it's across the street from the river and a quick walk to Jonnker street. The roof deck is nice. Bathrooms are cleaned daily and we never had to wait for a shower even though the hostel was full. The staff weren't really around so you had to go to the cafe if you needed anything which is fine if you already know what you want to do.


A nice hostel in the center of a beautiful town. The rooftop terrace is really worth it to be mentioned in the name of this hostel. The staff is very helpful, the atmosphere is nice, the facilities are good and you step out of the door and are in the middle of old china town. We even got free cupcakes and brownies!!!


Amazing Guesthouse! The staff and the owner are helpful and happy. The green roof top area is great for chilling, writing, meeting other travelers...Totally recommend this place!


Nice hostel, I really enjoy my staying! Good facilities and big rooms, I definitely recommand it!


The location is a bit far but it also mean quiet and peace. Nice room and nice days in Malacca.


It was walking distance to jonker street

It was a great experience staying in the roof top guest house. The staffs were really friendly and prompt in aiding me. The facilities were rather great, though it can be improved with the addition of a washing machine. I would remember roof top guest house as a place where fond memories with my pals were forged.


Keep up the good work!
