rooms are small, very small. no air conditioner. in this part of the world, if you are coming from Europe or America, you must have an aircon. Noisy place. One can easily hear all the cars passing by the guesthouse. Lizards are in the rooms; you sleep, then open your eyes and you can easily spot them. Mosquitoes are everywhere; the comfort level of the hotel, even for a well-tarveled person, is not good at all. To enter the guesthouse you need to go up the stairs 4 floors. I am totally fine with going up there but going up the stairs with no lift gives you a strange and uncomfy feeling. The only positive sides about this guesthouse are (1) location and (2) the host.
Location is close to sightseeings, the host was very friendly.

We stayed here for 3 nights while backpacking through Malaysia and had a great experience. The guesthouse was fairly quiet when we were staying there and we booked a private room so I'm not too sure what the experience of the dorms is like. They do look fairly open. Because it was low season we paid 30RM for our room which was really big, on the corner and had lots of windows and natural light. The room was really clean and the fan was quite strong. You could leave the windows open during the day and this helped to cool it down.

All the rooms are shared bathrooms and there are 4 in total with hot showers. The bathrooms were kept clean but didn't always have toilet paper. The common area is really big and homey. There is a computer with free and quick wifi. Wifi is available all over the guesthouse but didn't always work in our room but it was at the back of the guesthouse. There is also a big fridge/freezer to store some food and there are hotplates for cooking. Filtered water is also available. There are lots of comfy chairs and it's a really nice place to meet other backpackers.

The guy working there is so so nice, really friendly and really helpful. He really wants to look out for you and make sure that you are having a good time. He is also really security conscious and takes really good care of the place. One of the owners popped by while we were there and he wasn't as friendly but he also wasn't there often.

The location is really good and within walking distance of Dutch square where lots of the buses stop but also within walking distance of another close bus stop heading back to Melaka central. Overall, we had a really good experience here and would stay here again.

The hostel is a nice place to stay during your stay in Malaka, the location is very nice and just 10 min walk to the very famous Jonker street and all the tourist accommodations.
To get to the hostel is only 10 taxi or bus ride from the bus station.

The place is ok, you get what you pay.

As others have stated already, the guesthouse is located in an old concrete building on the 4th flour, so it's a bit of a hassle to get up there if you have lots of luggage. Most people staying there are backpackers though, so it shouldn't be that much of a problem. The communal area is rather dark and needs some updating, it's not that cozy at all. The area where the rooms are is nicely done with a warm (fake) wooden floor. The rooms are what you would expect for this budget, only available with a fan. So it probably is moist the entire length of your stay, but then again, you can't expect more. You have to ask for a blanket en toilet paper, which is ok. A tip to the owners: just provide it in the room, much easier! Bathrooms also in an urgent need of an update. They were clean, but that's hard noticing when everything is worn off. Overall I didn't had a bad stay there, I've seen worse hostels in my life. Also the city of Melaka is wonderful to explore, but only for one or two days, you'll get bored staying there longer.

Perfectly situated within Melaka you can reach any place you like within minutes of walking or rent a bike nearby. The rooms are very clean, the staff cleans every room twice a day. Friendly people and free drinks + some food, TV and Wifi, no cockroaches or mosquitos and fans on rooms and all that for an unbeatable pricing. Arrive early to grab best rooms or order online (e.g. hostelworld.com). I have already and definitely will come back for every future stay in Melaka

Room Tip: We stayed No.9, beautiful view from up there
