We really liked staying at Rooftop. The guesthouse is really clean, beds are comfy. We can use the kitchen (free tea and coffee), and the two rooftop terraces are nice. Well situated near the river, the main street and the night market. Friendly staff giving good advises.

Location of the guest house is perfect. They have a super nice roof top terrace for relaxing in the evening. The staff is really really nice and helpful. The dorm rooms were very big, even the beds and also super comfortable. Would stay there anytime again, especially for the prices they have!

Clean and cozy guesthouse with superfriendly staff in chinatown. You can reach everything in a few minutes. The owners offer free delicious cakes from time to time. The rooftop gardens are beautiful. We really enjoy our stay there.

Very quiet in a nice location near the river. Free tea and water which was lovely. The main lady working there is very friendly. It's very basic accommodation, but I enjoyed my time there. For the price, it might be possible to find something a little nicer in the same area.

Location is great as it is just behind the river and 2 streets from Jonker Street. It is of course a nice little budget hostel with the usual amenities - kitchen, common room with books etc, free wifi, common showers with hot water. The staff is also very helpful and will guide you on things to do in Malacca. River... More

Roof top guest house and Riverview guesthouse are must go hostels (they are owned by the same person) - though I must say RoofTop was better. If Andy is still working there, he will make your stay the best stay in Malaka. Rooms are very cozy, nice view, good staff, nothing i can complain about. Really good location by the... More
