Great place for backpackers to rest. It's quiet and sociable. Howard and Andrew are fantastic hosts who make sure all solo travellers meet everyone in the hostel and they organize complimentary bike tours to restaurants and markets. The rooftop is a great place to sit and chat. I would definitely stay here again.

First time in Melacca and had a wonderful stay. All the positive comments on Howard got me to his place. This ever-smiling guy owns the place and makes a wonderful host..you'll surely make yourself at home. A small, cool place with basic amenities and centrally located..just few minutes walk to the famous Jonker St. and the main road to catch...

Strategic location - walk about 100 metres and you'll reach the famous Jonker Street. I stayed for 2 nights in a 4-bed female dorm non air-conditioned and it was good. Bathrooms/Toilets are clean with no wee smell. However there's only one bathroom comes with water heater. In total they have 4 bathrooms. All-in-one shower and shampoo dispenser is attached in...

This hostel was very nice. We arrived late one evening tired and sweating buckets! Howard, the hostel owner welcomed us by passing a bike to us and telling us to go on an adventure with him. Although tired, we followed him on the bikes and he took us to an Indian restaurant, the food was scrumptious. We soon made friends...

The manager here is unbelievably happy and welcoming!! He takes you on bike tours of the city and outside, introduces you to other guests and takes you to the local markets. He really makes you feel at home. Excellent hostel

The night bike tours were a lot of fun! Staff (Howard) was great and gave excellent recommendations and led all the bike tours. Also, we love traveling for food. Ringos is near some great eateries, including upstairs from an excellent and cheap Dim Sum. Though, the main attraction in Melaka is the night food market Fri-Sun which only a block...

It was my third time in Melaka and would like to stay in a place near Jonker Street. Spent two nights in this hostel. I initially booked a bed in a 4-bed dorm room but was accommodated in a 2-bed room (Yay!). Basic fan room, decent toilet and the common area is okay to chill. Too bad I didn't get...

No complaints. Very chill, cosy, friendly, affordable hostel in a great location, just down from Jonker St. The room was warm, even with a fan going, but I stayed in early August, and it's summer, so what can you do? Wouldn't consider going anywhere else if I came back through Melaka.

Had two nights at Ringo's Foyer Guest House. Being my first hostel experience I was apprehensive but as soon as we set foot through the door we felt at home. Howard made everyone feel included by organising bike rides and communal dinners. Bathrooms clean and roof terrace a definite plus. We stayed in air con family room which offered everything...

We stayed for 4 nights at Ringo and find it very good for value. Since we spent mostly going out sightseeing, we didn't get to stay in the room so much. But the room is decent and clean. For the money we have paid, it is definitely worth the value. Plus the location central and it is just behind Jonker...
