Conveniently located in the UNESCO Heritage Site Old Town Melaka only 5 minutes walk from Jonker Walk and 2 minutes walk to a selection of good value eateries (including the Hawker Centre) where you can get a good feed for MYR5 to MYR10 and some of the cheapest beers in town. The rooms are nothing special - plain and functional...

Considered a decent hotel with free wi-fi as we can't expect anything more for a budget hotel. The aircon is not cold but there is a ceiling fan so it is alright. Staff are friendly. Walking distance to Jonker Walk and also near to a food centre nearby. There is also a wet market just outside the hotel with some...

He rooms are divided by dorm, normal and family. We took the family upstairs with balcony and Queen + single bed. Price is ok. Location is very good. Staffs are super friendly and happy to host you. The only minor bad thing is the lodge is located near to wet market, so every time, we will pass the rubbish bin...

Super welcoming, super nice people who work here. They will give you clean towel, soap and tissue. Free coffee and tea in the morning, free smiles too ! Sharing bathrooms and toilets for cheapest rooms. Rooms get aircon or frame only, depends on the room. Can't wait to go in again !

It started well with the owner Mr Lee touting at the bus station to bring in customers for a dead mid-week. The downstairs rooms were functional and clean (upstairs were not great), and the night man was friendly and accommodating so we agreed to 5 nights at a discount for weekday nights as the hotel was almost empty. The following...

We had the triple room with shared bathroom. The room was basic but did the job, the walls were quite thin so you could hear some of the other guests from time to time but as seasoned travelers we just popped our ear plugs in at night! The wifi also didn't stretch to our room but this wasn't a major...

We stayed in the triple room with shared bathroom. It was a small but clean room with aircon. Very nice owner. He showed us the good places to eat and he even drove me to the doctor when I was ill. Good location, good price.
