Amazing value, friendly staff, great stay
I was really impressed by this place, there are a lot of things that they have got right. This is more of a no frills guest house that does dorms than a hostel, but I really liked this approach. A cheap, clean, quiet place to stay. This isn't a place for you if you like the hostel social, drinking and party scene. Nor do you get some of the extras offered by bigger hostels like laundry and food. But if like me, you are someone who wants great hostel value and also wants somewhere clean and peaceful, then this place is great. It's a great fit for solo travelers, couples and slightly older backpackers, whose best drinking days are behind them. I found it much better value and cleaner than any of the hostels I've stayed in recently and I like the fact that it isn't just a carbon copy of all the other hostels around Asia. The decor is new and fresh and the place was spotlessly clean, I found the beds really comfortable with good air-con. It isn't in the heart of the old town, but is a 5-10 minute walk to all of the restaurants, shops and cafes. It is also a cheap Uber ride to get to and from the bus stations, which was about a 10 minute drive away, so I found the location great. This doesn't have a 24 hour desk, but the staff were really helpful and accommodating when I contacted them via Whatsapp and asked if I could arrive in the middle of the night (don't do the hostel thing and rock up at the door at 2am) and it was a very easy process. As a previous review mentioned there are not enough plugs, but as it is a small place and quite quiet during my stay, I didn't have any problems charging and this isn't something that is an easy fix. I found the wifi fast and the fact that the toilets and showers are separated is also good and I never had to wait. They should definitely consider adding in some security lockers in the future, which could easily fit on the blank wall of the common area. It is a bit of a pain having to carry around your valuables all day. But a great stay and if I ever come back to Melaka, I will return.

One of the best hostel accommodation near Jonker Street.
Stayed 2 nights in a 7-bed, 6-bed dorm rooms and triple beds room for our large group. Super clean rooms and shared bathrooms. Nicely decorated common area for relaxing. Excellent complimentary wi-fi. Within walking distance to Jonker street, Xin Tian Di food court and other eateries. The only negative point is only 4 shared bathrooms available but not a big problem for us. Highly recommended and affordable accommodation in Melaka.

Great value for Money
We stayed on a room with 3 bunk beds for up to 7 people. The room is just a simple room with aircond and bed. There's some space in the middle that you can use to play or sit together with your friends. The shared bathroom is clean with all the soap and shampoo provided. Overall, great value!

Lots of things are missing
The place itself is really ok but I have a feeling that the owner never really traveled anywhere and doesnt have any idea what people need in hostels . There is lots of free space but it is not organized well. No fridge no kitchen and anything except cups. When I got there they run out of towels. No lockers at all. Reception closes early evening . No plugs near bed - for whole room there was one spot to connect your phone but not enough for everyone. Staff is very serious . And it is a long walk from the main road . No shops around at all and in hostel you can't buy any drink neither. No free tee or coffee . Only 4 showers and only 2 toilets for whole place.

One of my favourite hostels
This is really one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. Everything was superclean, the bathrooms, the dorm and the living-room. Hot showers with free soap/shampoo, good wifi and lots of interesting books to read in the hanging chairs. Only a 10 min walk to Jonker Street, so the location is also good.
