Great service, very friendly and helpful staff (they even hosted a birtday party for my travel mate!). The rooms were cleaned on a daily basis and we had a cozy corner-room with lots of windows. Have lovely memories having a beer or two in the common area (sold really cheap) and getting to know new people from around the Globe!... More

Same story like others above: we arrived at the bus terminal and a guy told us about a new and nice place in town. And indeed it is a very nice, clean and comfy place to stay. I don't have a comparison to other places, but I would recommend it to everyone. It is relatively cheap and you get free... More

We spent just over a week in Melaka and had a wonderful time. The city is so pretty and full of things to do and amazing food to experience.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Travellers Planet Hostel, Malacca is a modernize architecture building painted with striking orange outlook. Featuring 13 various budget rooms to standard deluxe rooms. When it comes to accommodation, we really meant business to cater for all. Located in the heart of Melaka (Malacca), city of UNESCO historical site. We are just minutes away from all tourist spot such as the Jonker Walk (Chinatown), Fort A'Farmosa, St. Paul's Church, The Dutch Square (Stadhuys) and even all the famous museum. This is the latest and newest backpackers travelers hostel in town. Friendly environment and fairly cheap price for rooms. Rooms availability from Single/Double/Triple Fan / A/C / Attached Bathroom. The best part is the atmosphere here is so laid back and fun, plus the great locality which is near to all sightseeing sites, but not on the main road. So the place is peacefully quiet at all times. Unless the socializing travelers are having a great fun... ... more   less
