Beautifully maintained heritage house in the heart of melacca city. The surrounding around the house is good and the owner has maintained the sanctity of the place. 3 rooms are good with Air conditioner and attached bathroom and toilet. Rest other rooms do not have air conditioners and uses common bathroom. The only problem faced was water pressure in taps. They have a problem with water pressure. Beautiful friendly cats around and a beautiful furnished outdoor veranda.

With my girlfriend, we stayed 10 nights in Apa Kaba in a work for accomodation program. We helped Kenny, the owner, to develop some plans he has for the home stay and for a tour. The homestay itself is a lovely kampung (tradiotional village), a relaxing place with a beautiful garden. The family is really nice, they always made sure to provide us a vegan option in the breakfast. Also, as our stay was a 10 day, Kenny took us for dinner in the first and last night, and when we left he drive us close to the toll as we wanted to go hitch hiking to Johor Bahru. Thank a lot Kenny and family and staff!

Stayed at Apa Kaba for 3 nights during Christmas. It’s a true Homestay experience, very friendly smiley who organized a bbq on Christmas evening and guest were invited to join for free. Nice garden where you can read a book and relax after a day exploring Melaka. Close to the center but outside the tourist scams.. absolute recommendation

I would recommend this hostel for the location (easy walking distance to all the local sights, sounds, and tastes), price, and really friendly atmosphere and helpful staff. We couldn't get the hot water to run, and we were only issued with one small blanket type thing each (no top sheet), so don't expect luxury, but still we had a lovely stay.
