I've stayed here a couple of times. The first time was only meant to be two nights and ended up staying two weeks. Melaka and Ringo's are a great fit for the traveler with a lot of time and in need of a place to chill out. I've made so many friends at this place because its so welcoming. The...

Ringos is hostel type accomodation, run by the lovely Howard! Accomodation is basic but the place has a relaxed, homely feel to it. Great rooftop terrace. Howard is a wonderful host, introduces all of his guests to each other, is mad on cycling and takes everyone out nearly every evening in and around Malacca! This is a common sight for...

Howard, the owner, made the stay for us! We immediately felt welcome. He introduced us to other guests and planned trips out to restaurants and the market for everyone in the guesthouse. Easily the most helpful and hospitable owner we have met after 4 months travelling Asia. The rooms are good for the price and good location. Couldn't recommend this...

We arrived around 8:30 pm at this guest house. No one was around because they had an organized biking around the area. When I called them up, they were assuring us that they're on their way to the house. What is so good here is the hospitality of the hosts. As if you're just at your own house. So friendly...

we arrived by the night bus at 6am, but Howard (manager) was so nice to let us know in advance that we may just call him and he will let us in. We stayed two nights until Christmas Eve where we joint a wonderful party at the roof top. Really a great and cosy place to stay in a great...

We stayed for a month and what I can say is that Howard and Andrew are the most friendliest hosts I've ever met! They take you to bike rides every other night and while I didn't go for personal reasons involving bicycles and a childhood incident, my partner went to a couple tours and thoroughly enjoyed it! It's comfy and...

A nice, quiet hostel run by the most welcoming staff ever. Not only do they give you a tour of the place, they also introduce you to other guests. Often there's dinner a bike tours as well, a great way to get to know the city and other travelers. It's almost like visiting someone's home, instead of just another room...

We stayed at ringos for two nights and only wish we could have booked for longer. Each night (weeknights) they take the guests out on bike tours of the city and then off to dinner. It was such a good concept and a good way for everyone staying in the hostel to get to know each other. Howard had plenty...

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.
