Manager (Ajit) made us an offer at the bus stop. Kept his word on the price, but gave us a room he knew to be below standard, with a sewage pipe that leaks into the shower area (this is a first floor room to the rear of the hotel). It was Tet, so the place was booked and we couldn't... More

We are very happy about our stay here. We got a nice doubble room with a fan for 35 RM, and the room has a window and feels very light. We share bathroom with others but they are very clean.

Stayed for 3 nights at 55MR. Our room was clean and a good size. Our private bathroom was very small but had everything you might need. Good location- close to Melaka town and shopping malls. Ana was very friendly. Only concern was we stayed on ground floor and the window to our room didn't feel very secure.

I recently stayed here for a day and I must compliment the guesthouse for its cleanliness, location and great service. I didn't search about the guesthouse online.

I spent a very nice trip in Malacca due to support from Travellers Planet. Guys here really understand the art of travel and the way how to enjoy our trips. With their information and instruction I successfully explored some places to which foreigners get reached, for example Gadek Hot Spring and Gunung Ledang BY MYSELF. I will leave Malacca for...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Travellers Planet Hostel, Malacca is a modernize architecture building painted with striking orange outlook. Featuring 13 various budget rooms to standard deluxe rooms. When it comes to accommodation, we really meant business to cater for all. Located in the heart of Melaka (Malacca), city of UNESCO historical site. We are just minutes away from all tourist spot such as the Jonker Walk (Chinatown), Fort A'Farmosa, St. Paul's Church, The Dutch Square (Stadhuys) and even all the famous museum. This is the latest and newest backpackers travelers hostel in town. Friendly environment and fairly cheap price for rooms. Rooms availability from Single/Double/Triple Fan / A/C / Attached Bathroom. The best part is the atmosphere here is so laid back and fun, plus the great locality which is near to all sightseeing sites, but not on the main road. So the place is peacefully quiet at all times. Unless the socializing travelers are having a great fun... ... more   less
