The guard jutek really, but for privacy okay lah bathroom was also quite clean the location of the bus stop is also not far "very tolerable deket was of jonker walk and red building just better if bicycle rental is rather difficult to find to eat nearby because there are in Chinatown fear not lawful for a Muslim
The receptionists are very kind, the overall hostel is nice, but there is no air conditioning and in the dorm room there is also no power outlet

Cheap but the toilet....
We just need a bed yo sleep 1 nite, so didn't expect much. The room was nice, But the hostel need to improve the toilet, the facility very old and dirty. Moreover, the receptionist didn't pay attention in this hostel, i tried to change another blanket but there wasn't staff there although it was 8 pm.

Cheap but...
What can you expect for just 15 ringgits? Located at the riverside but no view. Near the town center and some attractions. Dorms were not clean as expected but acceptable. Receptionist was polite and lovely. She helped me with adapter and gave me some advices The only trouble was that toilets. Too small and I had to use the bucket to flush it. Ewwww Free water (hot and cold) So if you want to stay more than a few days with a small budget, hang out all day and just come back in the evening to sleep then Sayang is a reasonable choice

Cheap for staying overnight
It's cheap and affordable for backpackers or a group of friends like us. However, the living condition is not really satisfactory. You can't really find the location at first if you follow the Google map or Waze. The washrooms on the second floor are all totally out of service. Please get them fixed! It's okay if you are just staying for a night. The receptionist was there when we first checked in and that's also the last time I saw him.

cheap causeits very basic
no receptionist when i came. ring the bell no answer. luckily there's a guest who can open the door for me. the dorms is a big hall with fans and beds seperated by thin wall and just cover with a curtain. every guest have a locker and blanket, but BEWARE , NO PERSONAL ELECTIC SOCKET ! If you want to charge your devices you have to put in the communal area and wait there. dont expect you can leave it while you are sleeping. Near Jonker Walk and the River.

Nice room and location, terrible receptionist
The hostel (not guesthouse) is located near by Melaka river in the Center of Chinatown and UNESCO site. The rooms and bathrooms are clean and the cleaning lady is an angel. The receptionist or young owner (whoever he is) is probably the rudest person we have ever met. You arrive as a guest and there is no one (for hours), we called (no answer). We had to call the other guesthouse from the same group for them to call him. It took 2 hours for him to show up and no smile, apology or even a hello. He looked pissed and we felt unwelcome. The only words he exchanged were"name", "passport" and he gave the key. You should not work in hospitality if you are the opposite of hospitable.
