Stayed at River One Residence couple of times & they are always our choice of hostel as we feel very much at ease & welcome during our stay. The whole set up is very homely & fuss-free. Clean, safe, comfortable, convenient & affordable- everything checked in the backpacker/ holiday maker's wish list.

We stayed two nights at this residence. Staff provided exceptional service, helping with a lost credit card and with ice for an injured foot. The room was clean and quiet and the location was very good, close to everything you would like to see in Melaka. There was also a helpful list of restaurants and sights to see in Melaka...
