Run by Guna and George, both good guys with a love of beer, conversations, and helping travelers. Room was basic but clean, and AC worked well, good location. And Includes basic breakfast.

Recommend this place if you want to meet other travels, and save money.

We stayed one night in a room with aircon and bathroom. Then we stayed two nights in a room with fan and shared bathroom. We don`t stay in shared bathroom most places but it was no problem her. Very cleen:)The place have free breakfast and coffee/tea all day. The breakfast is simple but will start your day without going out. If you want more advanced food, go to a store and buy what you want and store it in the fridge at the kitchen. You can also use the kitchen to cook your own food. The staff is very friendly and allways around. They are happy to help with planning the rest of your trip in Malaysia and have a lot of good tips and advice:) This was a very nice place for our kid. In the livingroom they have tv with movies/DVD for kids and some games:)
We have now travelled for 6 months in Asia and overall we liked our stay at Travellers planet:)

Me and my friend stayed in Melaka for 4 days at Travellers Planet. I think its the best place we have stayed yet on our trip (4 months in asia now).
The staff is really nice and helpful. We played card games some nights and just had a great time! If you want any tip for your next stop they have a lot of good suggestions.
The rooms are really nice, clean and fresh. We had one on the corner so we had 2 windows which made the room very light. Most hotels we stayed in before had been pretty dark.
Good central location with a night market (I think it was open friday-sunday) 100 meters down the street. It´s a calm neighborhood with lots of restaurants and near to the big malls. You can walk pretty much anywhere from the hotel.
It´s a great place to stay! :)

We booked on agoda.com (very cheap for a double room with A/C and shared bathroom, room no.5, free toast and jam breakfast and good wifi) for I think 36 RM? All I remember is that it was ridiculously cheap and good value.

The staff are really laid-back, polite and friendly. I chose Travellers Planet Hostel because I heard their staff will be at Melaka Sentral where the bus terminates. Their staff advised us how to get there by public bus 1RM or taxi for 20RM. We took the taxi with no fuss.

They sell 1.5L water for 2RM and beer for 6RM (that's cheap compared to other places). Location is great as Melaka is a walkable city. They are nearest to Melaka Menara Taming Sari (Melaka tower) and nearby there are 2 massive shopping center. Everything you need is there including Mc Donalds, cheap bowling and arcade games! At one of the shopping center there's a taxi bay for your convenience.

We didn't had a reservation and so we were happy about the warm welcome and good recommandation we get a the busstation in Melaka. Finally we ended up staying 4 nights in this great hostel. Very warm atmosphere, spacious living area, clean rooms and very helpfull staff. The location is perfect and within an easy walk you reach Chinatwon. We can really recommended this place and would come back to here.

PS: Room number 3 is great ;)

Very basic accomodation. Thought it was a bit overpriced for what we got (RM70). Went to have a shower after dinner and there was no water in our ensuite shower so I used the communal shower and it was only just a trickle. Was working fine in the morning but was a bit angry that I couldn't have a proper shower before bed. Location isn't too bad, it's a little bit of a walk to jonker st which is the main strip. I was expecting more from this place from all the 5 star reviews. Only stayed one night, wouldn't stay any more that. Could see and do most things on a day trip.

We have been travelling for 2 months, and this is by far the best experience yet. It's a good price, hot water, unlimited watch of films (big selection!), and the staff are so helpful. They have offered to collect our bus ticket for us to Singapore, and rang a hostel to book for us also!!
It's a very sociable hostel, despite only having 14 rooms, everyone is very friendly, and it is a very relaxed atmosphere. The kitchen is always very clean, and so are the bathrooms.
Can definitely recommend.

Room Tip: It's a hot city, so get a room with limited windows, or get air con. There is free wi-fi in ever...
