The location was rather isolated, which made it very quiet but it also didn't feel extremely secure. The room was very stuffy with only a fan and no window that could be opened. It was very close to the bus station and also very cheap, so you were pretty much getting what you paid for. The staff did offer good tips on things to do in the area.
The Roof Top Guest House was really peaceful and quiet, a nice get-away from the city when the large amounts of tourists or the heat got overwhelming. The staff is very friendly and helpful at giving you tips on what to do, and it is walking distance from everything in Melaka.
Tony was super helpful giving me tips on places to go and things to do. The internet worked great and the common area was really nice for hanging out. Note that free breakfast is only on weekdays. The location is kind of far from Chinatown/Little India, but there is a very convenient bus nearby. The location is nice if you like to exercise; a short walk from a beach-front park.
The free airport transport and the location near the airport was excellent. It's great if you are only in Johannesburg for a day or so (you can take the Gautrain into town and do an open bus tour easily), but might not be so good if you are in Jo-burg for a while. Rob was a very friendly and excellent host, he even went out of his way to drive me to DHL to mail a package. Definitely recommended if you're just passing through Johannesburg.
I thought the wifi would be free but had to pay a lot for it which was disappointing. The 16-person dorm did not have much room for luggage and moving around was a bit cramped. Very clean and laundry facilities were very convenient.
