The hostel (not guesthouse) is located near by Melaka river in the Center of Chinatown and UNESCO site. The rooms and bathrooms are clean and the cleaning lady is an angel. The receptionist or young owner (whoever he is) is probably the rudest person we have ever met. You arrive as a guest and there is no one (for hours),...

Dirty room, there where around 40 mosqitos in the bathroom and the waterbucket was full with mosqitoegg. Location is good, internet was not so good and the stuff was not so helpfull. There is many hostels in the same area so pick one that is okey.

Me and my family of 4 went to Melaka for a school/ public holiday last week, and this is among the few guesthouse available. For RM400 per night, you don't even get a towel, and the internet bill is overdue. No breakfast, and too many mosquitos. I seriously think for RM400 per night that they can at least give us...

If you have no problem sharing bathroom or just wanted a place to sleep only, I guess the hotel is suitable for you. Overall I do like the hostel concept. My only complaint was the person who answered my phone call in the afternoon is very very rude.

The location is just nice. Near jonker street and nearby has car park if you are self-driving. Behind the hostel is the Melaka River, so at night the view still not bad. We booked it quite last minute most of the guest house were full due to long weekend holiday, so cost me RM85 per night (used to be rm...

Great location along the beautiful river side! Neat and calm dorms, value for money. Drawbacks: No electrical sockets for charging Mobile phones or laptops at the dorm beds, except dorm bed no 19! If you want to try south Indian/vegetarian food, I would recommend Selvam, No 2 Jalan Temenggong, Melaka 75000, Cheap and best food in the town! The people...
