I had this place booked through booking.com and received an email from them during the day to say they only keep the booking till 6pm and then will sell it on. Well my bus didn't get in till after 6.30pm so not really good enough, especially when there check in time is to a lot later than that. No wifi. The guy on reception was helpful and friendly. I'm really glad I didn't end up staying.

Small room, looked like a cell, no window, dirty, only fan, was so hot no sleep at all, bugs, shower down the hall cramped, water cold or boiling hot, light coming in through hole in wall. Depressive. Girl reception unfriendly. I booked 2 nights, stayed 1. Gave me another room for second night at LB hotel extra 10 rm. LB was ok.

I think the only nice thing of this hostel is the location... It's near to any attractions area in Malaka and located in main Street but the room is too small unless you have the third floor the room is spacious, the bathroom is really small too.. But the uncle is nice...

For the price of a private double room, it's pretty hard to beat. We stayed in a nice room with good airconditioning. The owner was nice and let me play with the little rabbit they have. Rooms are clean and shared bathroom was clean. Location was very good

The room isn't that great but was nice and cool which was good! The bedding had a cigarette hole in it and after check out the woman went to clean room and change sheets, when I went back upstairs to use the toilet I walked past and saw the bed was made but sheets were the same and made me think maybe they didn't change it before aswel. Not great!
