              dirty with incompetent staff”
              Bathroom and kithen on the first floor is total disaster: dirty, cockroaches, cigarettes all around (although you cannot smoke in the building). The bathroom is basically unusable, you have to go to the 2nd floor. No breakfast (when we mentioned that the breakfast was included according to the webpage, the owner started ranting and shouting that it's not in the offer, super mean). One evening, the electricity went out, the young boy at the reception was just running around for 20 minutes not knowing what to do and smiling at us when we asked if it was going to last long. Finally my boyfriend had to fix it (5 seconds) himself. Ridiculous.

              I would say the location of this hotel is good. Well what can I say.. you cant complaint much as ur a cheapscake and not paying much. But i would rather add a bit of cash next time for my visit to Melaka and get a more decent hotel..

              Cheap cupboard ”
              They advertise for the backpacker hostel and when you check in they take you 2 blocks away :(( I call that unexpected bad surprise and misleading. Cheap cupboard room with no window... More than enough for 1 night unless one enjoys suffocating tiny place. Not very clean. Fortunately staff nice and helpful.
