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.

I have been here a couple of times and staying in a lot of places in Melaka before.
But this place became my favourite one amd made me feeling home and its worth to stay longer. rooms are clean, the owner and stuff very helpful and friendly. Its an airy and bright place with a nice garden, so that you will forget you are in a noisy town. The place feels more like beeing in a village or in the country. But the most places of interest are only a couple of minutes by walking.Coming here the first time my airline lost my baggage on the way to KL,but I a got a helpful assistence from the owners-very kind. The old building is lovely but cause of the age and its wooden floor, you hear and feel the walk of other guests. But i would highly recommend to stay here and come again.

Room tip: as more you pay as more you'll get.the better rooms are the quieter ones.
