The check in was rushed and hurried which wasn't too much of a problem. The room itself was basic, a double bed with a plastic chair and a table. Although it did have good air con and a fan! The location was great with being walking distance to all of the local sites. You get what you pay for being... More

Good location and reasonably priced but did not do service recovery when things go wrong. A little disappointed with the room with attached bath. May be sharing bath is a better idea as the bath room is e her leaking water or too tiny. Flush and sink both got problems and air con was noisy yet not cold

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Travellers Planet Hostel, Malacca is a modernize architecture building painted with striking orange outlook. Featuring 13 various budget rooms to standard deluxe rooms. When it comes to accommodation, we really meant business to cater for all. Located in the heart of Melaka (Malacca), city of UNESCO historical site. We are just minutes away from all tourist spot such as the Jonker Walk (Chinatown), Fort A'Farmosa, St. Paul's Church, The Dutch Square (Stadhuys) and even all the famous museum. This is the latest and newest backpackers travelers hostel in town. Friendly environment and fairly cheap price for rooms. Rooms availability from Single/Double/Triple Fan / A/C / Attached Bathroom. The best part is the atmosphere here is so laid back and fun, plus the great locality which is near to all sightseeing sites, but not on the main road. So the place is peacefully quiet at all times. Unless the socializing travelers are having a great fun... ... more   less
