Positive Reviews

Convenient location

As locations go, this guesthouse has an excellent one - if you like being in the heart of the action that is! Guests have found this guesthouse within a short walk of shops, restaurants, bars and attractions.

Friendly and helpful staff

Overall, previous guests have been left with a great impression of the service here. The staff is consistently described as friendly and welcoming and have proved helpful when it comes to providing local area advice.

Affordable accommodation

This hostel/guesthouse has proved affordable to past guests. The low rates are a clear attraction for anyone who is looking for a budget-friendly accommodation option in Melaka.

Negative Reviews

No breakfast included

Although guests have found this guesthouse affordable, a free breakfast would be welcomed by guests. Even a simple spread of cereal and toast is typically provided in properties like this but that is not the case here.

Wi-Fi problems may occur

Guest feedback about the Wi-Fi varies a little. While not everyone has encountered problems, a fair number have described the Internet connection as slow and unreliable.

Most rooms lack windows

The majority of rooms at this guesthouse are windowless. Although the rooms and dorms are otherwise found to be comfortable, guests would understandably prefer to have a window, especially as the property sits on a river and would otherwise offer great views.
