Well located, friendly hotel”
The hotel is located very near the heritage area and right near Christchurch Malacca, which today is tourism central. It's convenient for going round the Jonker St shops, climbing St Paul's Hill, and cooling off in the shopping mall nearby. There are food stalls and cafes all around. For the price, you get basic facilities and a clean, industrial-chic room that is well-designed and not too tiny. The breakfast nasi lemak was excellent. and a range of other food is provided as well. I would stay here again.

Around touristy”
It was fasting month. Paid with breakfast. The first frontdesk said theres no such things for early breakfast. We tried our luck with another dude when we are asking for direction. He is more friendly and even offered the early makan thou its only the basic of bread, butter N cereal. Small room but love the concept and strategic place for Jonker during weekends.

Average stay”
It is walking distance to jonker walk. If you are seeking for convenience it is a good area. This hotel Is relatively new but housekeeping wise not fantastic, furnitures that are black are visibility dusty. Room is still dim with lighting. Makes it difficult to apply makeup for females. Breakfast is very simple, you can go outside for better food. Hotel is safe despite along busy street. We stayed in grand famosa room, noisy with vehicles driving pass. Bathroom is as big as bedroom, therefore make room feel crampy.

Excellent location ”
Close to Jonker walk and all the historical attractions. Toilet bowl was not properly clean but overall clean facilities. Breakfast option limited but adequate. I arrived midday but reception refuse check in earlier than 3pm when the place is relatively vacant. However allow to store baggage prior to check in.

Best location”
A strategic location, near Jonker Street and some other famous food stall round. I basically just can walk to any place I want between 500m - 1km. One thing that need to improve is the parking. The hotel doesn’t have a place to park. Need to carry my heavy luggage from 150 meters away from my car park to the hotel.

I love how the location is so close to the jonker walk. However, I don’t fancy the bathroom coz the tile is slippery. Extra caution has to be taken for parents with toddlers. Overall the room is okay.

Great stay in the centre of town! Good quality and cute hotel for a good price. ”
I really enjoyed my stay at the rucksack hotel. The staff were all very nice and the ambience is unique but nice. The location is great as it is just a short stroll to the centre of town. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who likes to be able to walk everywhere and for young travellers. The the rooms were somewhat small but very cosy and comfortable - big enough for us. The bathroom was clean and modern looking. A couple of things I think needs improving though; There are artificial lights shining on the outside of each room. It’s fine in the day time but in the night if you go to sleep early they can be a bit bothersome. They turn the lights off at around 9pm but I think it would be so much better if the outside lights could be controlled by the patrons. Also the wifi system is not great - you have to log in every single time with a unique username and password - which was annoying. Also, the hot water sometimes struggled to heat up. I highly recommend this hotel.

It's always a good choice for short stay in Melaka”
I've been staying with Rucksack for times and it will never disappoint me. Room is simple yet cozy, breakfast is amazing, environment in the hotel is the best. One thing here, it's not easy to get a parking nearby, so I will usually walk or take a cab to anywhere I want

Very nice rooms, even better location.”
Overall, a strong recommendation for The Rucksack Caratel Jonker Wing. The room and bathroom were very clean, included all the usual suspects such as a safe, hair dryer, ironing board, and iron. The soaps provided were lemongrass scented which were quite nice. Friendly and helpful staff as well. Only a minutes walk from Jonker Street where all the action is at night, which was a big plus. A short walk to nearby tourist attractions such as various churches and European architecture/ruins as well.

Excellent location - stone throw's away from Dutch Square!”
The overall interior has a very hip feel to it. Love that when you step out of the hotel, you're already where the magic happens as it's situated right beside Dutch Square and across the Melaka River. Breakfast served was basic - toast, eggs, sausage, cereals, sometimes soup and noodles - but they're just what I needed.

Better Hotels with This Kind of Price”
Strategic location, clean but small room and friendly staff. Other than that, there is really nothing to shout out loud about this hotel. Breakfast was extremely limited. If you're driving, you have to park in a public carpark about 200 metres away from the hotel on a very busy road so, imagine if you are travelling with children and have some luggages; not a very good idea! My car ended up with tons of bird droppings on it the next morning. It was so bad that I had to drive around looking for a carwash before heading back. With the price I paid for, I can definitely find some other better hotels in Malacca.
