Highly recommended if you have to stay in Melaka. Everything is just perfect: great situation, the size of the room is just amazing, the bathroom is really beautiful and so typical and Gus (the owner) is such a great host, everything you need or ask for, you will get it. Maybe a bit expensive but worth it. I definitely go... More

A Melaka trip would not be complete without a stay in this cultural homestay - knocknock home. Knocknock home is located near to the jonker street. It is spacious, clean, and has very interesting concept. Most importantly, it is affordable for budget travelers like us - definitely value for money. The owner, Augustine, is very friendly and would bring us... More

My friends and I spent a wonderful 3-day vacation in Knocknock Home, and MLK. The room is clean, cozy, and well decorated. It has extremely large space, and 5-star housing equipment. My experience with Knocknock Home is more than just a room, but about MLK food and culture. Augustine (the owner) is very friendly and helpful. He led us around... More

"You are a friend, not a guest", says Gus, owner of Knocknock as I apologised profusely after having embarassingly run out of money (because it is a small cosy set-up, Knocknock does not yet have credit card facilities). The owners' philosophy coupled with their clean, cozy rooms make their tripadvisor ranking a well-deserved one. At Knocknock home, you basically get... More

My friend Kamo organised a cycling trip to find the abandoned railway in Malacca last April and Knocknock Home was our lodging. Firstly, I'd say that the owners Augustine and Augustus are very friendly and comfortable to be with. They like to travel around the world so there's a lot to share. Especially if you're always backpack traveling. Augustine was... More

Making reservation was a breeze with Gus's promptest reply. Gus and Augustus are indeed hospitable recommending the best places in Malacca; guiding us the directions to the accommodation, different cafes and attractions. Not only that, Gus waited for quite a while under the scorching sun for our arrival (was apologetic to have missed his email), brought us to a few... More

Augustine and Augustus were very hospitable during our visit. Augustine briefly showed us around Malacca and recommended places that we could go. Knockknock home is spacious and the bedroom has its own air-con, separated from the main area by a sliding door.

We spent one night with my family of 6 (grand parents, parents and children) at the Knockknock Home in Melaka. We had a great time there. Gus and his cousin were kind enough to point us to the best places to visit, eat, discover in Melaka on top a very comfortable stay. We really felt at home!
