Positive Reviews

It's All About the Location

The overwhelming highlight of this hostel is its excellent location, near town and within easy walking distance to most all of the attractions, as well as easy access to Jonker Street and good food. The surrounding scenery is beautiful with amazing views of the Malacca River. Guests recommend enjoying a beer or other beverage with views of the river at the pub just behind the hostel.

Friendly Hotel Staff Pleases

Guests say the staff and hosts at this hotel are extremely friendly and helpful. They are able to offer recommendations on the best sights to see and places to eat in the area. They also go out of their way to accommodate guests and are known to help with luggage or wait up late with a snack for guests arriving late at night.

Rooms Feel Like Home

Rooms are basic, but cosy and clean. Guests say the beds are super comfortable and help with a great night's rest.

Negative Reviews

Possible Bug Issues

Be aware that although this hostel is clean, guests still may encounter bugs like mosquitoes and even roaches.

Room Temps on the Rise

Many rooms come with either air conditioning and/or a window, however some don't have either and these rooms have the potential to become very hot, which can make for uncomfortable sleeping conditions at night. Inquire ahead of time if your room will be equipped with air conditioning.

Other Guests' Bathroom Habits

This hostel does have shared bathrooms and guests will need to be OK with dealing with other guests' bathroom habits, for example noise from guests showering late at night.
