I picked this place due to it being one of the cheapest options in Melaka. at $4USD per night, it was very affordable. PROS: very cheap, free breakfast of toast and jam, coffee and tea all day, hot shower option, very spacious and cool rooftop area, 8 ringgit washing machine, 10 ringgit bicycle rental, and has a relaxed homey feel...

I actually stayed at Ringos for 5 nights (I think!) and it was wonderful. Truly relaxing, and it definitely made Melaka my favorite city in Malaysia! They even gave me a discount on my last night (I ended up staying so long because I couldn't get a bus to Singapore - they were all sold out for their 50th anniversary)....

It's not just that the place is spotless, that the rooms are light and bright, or that there are hot showers, hot tea and coffee all day long and comfortable places to relax. It's the mix of everything and Howard. Howard and his lovely wife make this place one of the best we have ever stayed in, from taking everyone...

Ringo's Foyer is a cool hostel. Howard, the owner, is very nice and easygoing. But what really makes the place is Amélie, the girl who works at the reception. She is wonderful, full of sunshine. She took us out for dinner every night and we went on a little bike ride with her. Even going out to find ice cream...

Howard - the owner - is really friendly and takes good care of the guests. He got every helpful information for you about Melaka, tried to connect people and made them friends. The most sociable and friendly hostel I've ever been to. Maybe due to the owner, everyone seemed to be more open to each other. Bikes are also available...

Howard is really friendly and the guests there too. It is also easy to find the place, we just take any bus that goes to ocean mall and then just abt 7 mnts walking to reach there. Had a really good sleep after a tiring day walking :) we really enjoyed our trip! The yogurt ice cream is a must-have...

This place has everything convenience what backpackers need for a stay; comfy sofas in every floors, good connection wi-fi, breakfast, bed, and...A ROOFTOP. For a hot weather in Malacca, the rooftop is an excellent space to chill out and gather and for some wind blows. Soon they will have yoga class there too and Howard once in a while arranges...

Howard, who runs this hostel, makes you feel right at home when you arrive. He tries to organise a daily trip to the restaurant with all of the guests of the hostel. The breakfast is quite minimal and the quality of the bunks average (holes in the sheets for ex.), but it is made up by the many new faces...
