Excellent place to stay. The rooms are clean. The staff is very friendly especially Anna. The breakfast (Toast, tea/coffee) is very great. Moreover, the price is very good. We paid RM 100 per night for 4 adults. It is located in the city centre near the shopping malls like mahkota. I would recommend this hostel for every backpacker travelling to...

Well, I came to Melaka to stay a day or 2, ended up staying 1 week at Travellers Planet. Ajit sticks around the bus station, so if you arrive by bus, chances to get him promoting the place are high. He won't forget to tell you that in the hostel you can get the cheapest beer in town! :) He's...

We booked this place whilst travelling Malaysia through Agoda and booked purely on the reviews it got through Agoda and also trip adviser. We arrived later than anticipated at Travellers Planet but we received a warm welcome from Ajit and he showed us to our room which was large and bright and top of the guesthouse. He also showed us...

The rooms were good, but small. The room and bathroom was clean. However, the flush in the bathroom was not working. That was a problem. Also, we were not allowed to check in till 4pm even though the hotel's check-in time says 12noon. The owner cited the reason being that the "rooms were being cleaned". That is not acceptable as...

They had only one room available, nbr 4 which is the biggest family room. Usual price is RM75 but we got it for...

Strategic location. Night market right downstairs. Lots of restaurants around. Walking distance to Jonker Street and other attractions. Things to do at night are, stroll along the night market, take the tower ride which is just a few steps aways from the hostel, enjoy the beautiful boat ride down the river as the boat ticketing is just nearby, then walk...

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
