Jalan Jalan is very cheap and worth it for that alone. It's in a great spot close to most of the things to see and do in Melaka (which incidentally isn't much, it's a very quiet place). The 10 bed dorm is like an old hospital wing - basic individual single beds. Each bed has a fan which is a...

We booked double room with shared bathroom for one night. Guy at reception was a bit confused, not very strong in English and kind of sleepy, mostly interested to his friends chilling at sofas. He took as to an other building few meters far away from reception. Room was nice, clean, specious and only with fan. Bathrooms were cool also....

My boyfriend and I stayed in a private room for 1/4 nights booked. The man at the desk was pretty rude to start off with, e.g wouldn't even speak to me and only spoke to my boyfriend.. not sure whether this was sexist or what. We then found BED BUGS in our bed the first night so wanted to speak...

Great affordable hostel in a fantastic location, the only issue I had was he ac was too cold and we couldn't turn it down. Other than that, can't fault the place. The water was hot and the beds clean and lots of interesting people to hang out with in communal areas.

Clean, good location, friendly and knowledgeable staff. Very affordable (I doubt you'll find cheaper). No aircon in dorm but individual fans. Close to local bus station which can easily connect you to the the central bus station.

I've been here for 2 days and 1 night. Great hospitality, great service, nice staff. The room is very clean and tidy. The toilet is very clean too. They provide free great coffee and great environment. Very accessible one, nearer with the mosque (Masjid Kling) and Jonker flea market. Suggested !

The Jalan-Jalan is definitely one of the best places to stay at for a trip to Melaka. The guest house bears only a few rooms and conveys a relaxed atmosphere. The staff is very nice and helpful, there coffee, water and tea all day, you store food in a fridge and the rooms have nets against mosquitos (except for the...

Stayed here 4 nights (2 in one building in a dorm w/ fan, 2 in the other building in a dorm w/ a/c) and both were very comfortable and clean with a relaxed vibe. Very simple amenities, but there is a washing machine, a fridge, fresh cold water, and tea and coffee available. The managers are very nice and accomadating,...

The staff were okay here, couldn't speak a lot of English but were helpful to the best of their ability. The room felt like I was in an open prison, single beds not bunk beds. Just fans for each bed. The mosquitoes ate me alive even with the appropriate deet spray. There is a nice outside area but there is...
