Liked: Nice simple hostel, it has indeed and atmosphere for backpacking. Beds are comfortable and the staff friendly.

Disliked: Far too many mosquitos, in the dormitory and share areas. They should do something about it.

Liked: I can't say a bad word about this place! Clean (both showers and dorm), good security, cute little place in Chinatown, bike rental for 5RM for the duration of your stay, reliable wifi, friendly and helpful staff and social activities organised (lunches and dinners) all for a super cheap price. Loved it.

Disliked: Nothing

Liked: Jalan Jalan is centrally located and the staff is very friendly. It is a clean and bed bug free place with nice hot showers and free coffee and tea in the morning. Comfortable beds.Guests can rent bicycles from the guest house for only RM 5 unlimited (I didn't do it, but it is very cheap)!

Disliked: Many positive things, but also a couple of negative things unfortunately:The floor in the fan-dorn is made of wood, which means that when someone walks through the dorm, your bed will be shaking a lot. The 'blankets' the provide are more kitchen towels...too small too cover your whole body. Every bed in the dorm has its own HUGE fan, which is a very bad idea! The lowest speed is already far too strong, and number 3 is like a hurricane! So at night the dorm is too windy (makes you sick) and the noise of all the fans together can be very annoying.About 30 metres from Jalan Jalan is a mosque, waking you up in the very early morning, every day.Another thing, which is more a problem of the whole Melaka Heritage area is the disco-rikshaws which drive through the streets until after midnight, with their super loud music. Super annoying. They should prohibit it.All of those negative things together resulted in me having an extremely bad sleeping quality.

Liked: Location was good

Disliked: They didn't mention they don't have glass in the windows, it's like sleeping in a shed, Mosquitos in and out as they please, showers in the gardens. Free tea and coffee but no milk?

Liked: I like the location, atmosphere and the staff, everything seem very good and good value for money.

Disliked: Except the main dorm room at first floor, the rest of the house included the living can be a place for smoking, it is unfair for non smoker because I can feel the smoke came into first floor dorm room.I hope the management can take this seriously because not everyone like this kind of smell.
