- cheap
- right in the jonker street
- bathroom is clean, hot water works well.
- garden theme interior
- friendly staff

- staff doesn't stay 24 hours. It's hard for a late check in guest
- wooden floor, creaking when you steps, if you're a light sleeper, this hostel might not suitable
- bed too soft

This is a nice place, will go back to this hostel when we visit Melaka again

We arrived into Malacca around 9pm and was looking for this Home In the Garden using Waze. The alley are narrow, no parking hence 2 of us have to walk about to look for this Home. After asking the concern auntie we were pointed to this Garden Inn, a side lane to Jonker Walk. Door not open though there are people there at the counter. Finally was told that check in latest is at 6pm, the caretaker is not in, making few calls and finally a lady came and take care of our check in. From outside view, this is just a normal miserable guest house especially during our entry. Once we walk to the 2nd control door to access inside and to 1st floor once can feel the solidity and clealiness of this guest house. We took 2 rooms, rooms are surely clean, bed and bedsheet and blanket, tower are all comfy.
Then as expected toilet are above my expectation, tiles, clean, simple with wall mounted body and hair shampoo...

Another good thing ia that, this Home in is just 2 mins walk to Jonker Street the happening place. The Home In the Garden is homely, clean, with natural lighting. Only thing they could make it better if they allowed guest to visit the balcony which is locked now...

It's strategically located in the middle of Melaka's touristy area. Just 3-min walk to Jonker night market. We booked room for 3 - not a spacious room but it is definitely clean and neat, I saw how the owner cleaned each room. I love the interior of the house. Cozy with garden theme. You can have free coffee or milo at the lobby. You need to bring your own toiletries but they provide clean towels. Shared bathrooms and hairdryer but hot and cold shower are available.

Had a night stay over...I didn't book it in advance,it was just happened book on the spot.Before we agreed to book,the staff letting us to have a look of the facilities and room before booking.Overall look good and we stayed here a night. Pros: -The reception counter and lounge was decorated with the back to nature concept.Clean,tidy and impressive. - Coffee machine was available and easy to consume,just that you can only have your cup at the lounge not in room. - In room was just with beds,hangers and air fresher.with the price paid,it consider fine to us.Room was clean and tidy. Shared toilet and bathroom was located outside and this is the one disadvantage for traveller who prefer privacy. -Just a walking distance to Jonker Street approx 2/3 minutes. Cons: -Location of hotel was not suitable to park your car.But you may park your car next to casa ria parking lot,even overnight was just with additional RM3. And distance from parking lot to hotel just 5 minutes away. Overall it was a pleasant stay in.I will be back for next round.

Clean and basic accommodation literally steps away from Jonker Walk. Rooms are compact but have everything a non fuss traveler might need -- light sleepers, just be aware that the wooden floors might be a noise issue if there's too many guests or kids around! Plus, the staff could be more attentive and friendly, as both people at the reception at the time we were there just spent the whole time looking at the phone screen :-/
