We had such a comfortable and unforgetable stay @ Apa Kaba and were sad leaving the great family with the paradise garden! The 'patron' ;) even gave us an extended tour around the city and told us a lot of interesting, special and useful information about melacca, the history, people, the culture and the vegetation! Thanks to him we touch every mimosa-flower now ! The house is very clean and beautiful with the vintage interieur and its history! We felt very welcome there and will never forget the kind hospitality of all the family members. The beds are very comfortable, breakfast was great and we were even served some delicious malayian/malaccan specialities. The beautiful garden was great to hang out, chill and wait until the rain quit. On our next malaysia trip we will

I had a great stay in Apa Kaba Home & Stay during my trip to Melaka/Malacca!! Here are my comments about the hostel: - If you look at the photos, the house-turned-hostel seems to be located in the middle of nowhere.

Stadthuys, A Famosa, Christ Church, etc.) It's just that the hostel was "strategically" located in a quieter part of the bustling downtown, which makes the hostel a good place to relax and take your mind off the slightly bustle of downtown Malacca. - There are nearby restaurants -- casual, fastfood (like McDonald's,) coffee shops (like Starbucks) and fine dining restaurants. There are nearby convenience

We stayed for two nights and we enjoyed it! It's basic but authentic and you have everything you need. The best thing is the friendly staff. In the garden you can chill out. The breakfast is basic but good. The beds could use new sheets though. You will enjoy your stay if you are looking for an authentic accommodation in a typical Malaysian suburb. You can reach the city centre by foot in only 5-10 minutes. We totally recommend it!

Calm, peaceful and friendly. The garden is lovely and the perfect place to chill out on the seats in the shade. A garden such as this seems rare in Melaka. Kenny is a laid back and helpful host. Cats, chicken, wild birds

I felt sick, so Kenny was locking after me, I am so thankfull and blessed for this. Best place to have a calm rest from funny Melaka.
