I went to Malacca with my husband and chose to stay here as there are many friends recommended to me. My friends have told me about the guest house and asked me to feel it myself.

Wasn't impressed. First of all, the location is about a 10 minute walk from Jonkers, so there are more central options. The walls are paper thin, so you can literally hear your neighbors snore. For some reason, they keep (albeit friendly) cats in the house, so this is a no-go for people with allergies. Also, there is a notorious smell...

I've stayed in a couple of B&Bs and this is probably the among the cheaper ones. Facility-wise, it's acceptable. After all, if you're backpacking, all you really need is a roof over your head when you sleep. If you're a light sleeper, the walls may be a tad too thin. If you're not, then you're in luck to have a...

This cheap, clean and cosy guest house is ideal for budget backpackers, looking for a decent basic room to crash in. The location is quite strategic and happening, and just like all happening streets, you can expect a little bit of noise, but this shouldn't be a problem if you are out travelling and exploring town most of the time...

“Preferably take the first floor rooms, a bit far from the noise coming from the pub and chose the farthest room from the bathrooms, you don't want to hear squeaky noise late in the night from those going to the bathrooms.”
