This is a fantastic guesthouse highly recommended for travellers, 45 ringgits for a double air conditioned room with breakfast included.

Beer is one of the cheapest in town (hard to find in Malaysia). The hostel doesn't have a pool but if you're lucky they might bring you to one... More

Had an enjoyable stay at home sweet home. Was recommended by friends who stayed when the owners first took over a year ago. The hostel is very different to others I have stayed in whilst travelling, feels more like you are staying in their home although they are very welcoming. Excellent lounge area with cable tv, DVDs and surround sound... More

We arrived in Melaka as a couple traveling and were looking for a place to stay. While we were packing our bags at the bus station, a tout approached us with a pamphlet for his guesthouse. Normally, we would run fast, but this Indian man was very polite, friendly, and not pushy at all, so we decided we would check... More

This place is really well located, has really good prices and the owners are extremely helpful with anything you may need. They helped us find our way within the city and the owner even bought some bus tickets we needed when he was going to the bus terminal. Overall it is a very nice homely experience with a nice family... More

Good guesthouse, Nice owners, but watch out, the man of the house always want to sell you something. And dont believe all his stories. His wife is different, so of you need something ask her first. Overall i give it a 7,5 out of 10.
