MPEF Just stayed there for a week, after initially planned for a couple of days... I extended my stay as I felt so relaxed there! This is like a new warm home for every traveler... There's free coffee, tea, water and breakfast, so you can just help yourself anytime as well as with the collection of DVDs, books and graphic novels! And as it's pretty new, the rooms are spotless clean and really comfortable (and cheap!). The owners (French guy and his Malaysian wife) have really created this little home that every backpacker looks for...

bernesg This homestay is conveniently located within walking distance of the center of old Malacca. Its garden provides a peaceful shelter against rain, heat... and tiredness. Its main asset nevertheless is the exceptional welcome each guest receives from the the family operating the place. Any problem ? Any question ? They have the answer. Thank you.

roddy Tony is a friendly , helpful , laid back person who is not interested in selling or persuading you to do anything but will provide any answers he can. The most laid back place I've stayed in anywhere in the world.
darcypog Jalan Jalan is a great rustic place to stay in Chinatown. I loved the decor here all the rooms were super clean and the bathroom was also clean. Sam the owner is really easy going and a pleasure to deal with. A great stay in Malaka
alextan246 I like the card based security gate feature on my first step to the guest house, you do not need to fumble with the lock and key coming back after a late night out. Bed is clean without bugs and room is well ventilated with exhaust and fan. Also, there is freely available water dispenser just outside the room. There's also a rooftop for suntan, cool! Location is good and Jonker walk is just a min's walk down the road. Best of all is your friendly host! Join Howard and the other fellow backpackers on a dinner outing and he will bring you to have the best local food. He also goes out of the way to provide advice on your travel plans after Melaka. Overall a very pleasant stay, definitely good value for your money.

elizabethrleigh We really enjoyed our stay at Roof Top Guest House. The owners, Mani and Raymond, were extremely helpful and very nice people. The location was excellent, close to everything you need to see in Melaka and the hostel was extremely clean throughout. Wish we could have stayed longer!
d_curzons Me and my girlfriend stayed at the hostel for 3 days and found it to be very clean and the owner Sam was very helpful. This was a good experience and if in Melacca I would suggest this as a good place to stay. The only negative point is that the double ensuite room we had overlooked the open lounge area and it was quite light at night due to the lights other than that very pleasant experience.

tientien_n Overall the guest house is very good. The owner is friendly. Event the breakfast doesn't include but there's always snack and food serve in the dinning room for the guests. They provide sitting area in the backyard which we can enjoy the river view and it's nice in theevening. Unfortunately, there's no computer that could be used by guest. So, if we want to use wifi service that it's available, we have to bring our own laptop/gadget to access the wifi. The River View guesthouse is recommended for the travellers.
