Sleeping with Bugs”
Checked in to a room here and realized that no one has been cleaning the room thoroughly, the top of the power switches, cupboard, etc, was filled with dust. We didn't want to complain as it was a short stay and one star hotel. But! That's not all, when we returned to the room at night, we found not one not two but three roaches!!! When we told the hotel staff about it, he came in with a feather dust, yes a feather dust, to eliminate the roaches. Needless to say, none was killed and went into hiding under the bed, tormenting our sleep with the fear of their appearance. We asked for a check out the next day due to it. After the night sleep and not trying to think too much of the roaches, we were asked by the staff the next day if we were checking out. We decided to stay on as we got lazy and fortunately none of the roaches bothered us the previous night. We were hoping for some form of compensation or complementary, and guess what, none. Of course.. the second night was also filled with roach smacking action in the room. And the constant fly that was there to watch. So, if you want to experience roach whacking, fly waving and dust breathing for your stay in Malacca. I truly recommend this hotel.
only location is good”
only 1 four bed mixed dorm. early morning is noisy with dogs barking. if u can sleep thru that shld be alright. toilet is downstairs.. one and only toilet they have. which is ok. u can get elsewhere at a cheaper price for a dorm.
OK for unplanned trips”
I love the location of this hotel but I didn't satisfied with the facilities provided by this hotel. The bathroom should be provided in each floor, because this is complicated for girls to go downstairs to use the bathroom for shower. The location of the bathroom is located just across the waiting area. How about if there is/are male visitor/s waiting in the waiting area?Therefore, it is not convenient for girls. Besides that, the accommodation like wifi and television are not available. I think the hotel should change the list of the available services. The room is somehow dirty. Apart for that, we were not given with the room key so it is somehow dangerous for our belongings.We noticed that the receptionist had frequently visited the room. Above all the location is strategic and many nice places with just a walking distance only, but the hotel need to upgrade its standard and facilities.
Interesting short stay”
My friend and I decided last minute to drive to Melaka and everywhere was fully booked. Lucky for us, we stumbled across this small hotel. We arrived before 12 and they let us checked into our room and showed us around. 1. Room is quite spacious, so is the bathroom. Hot water was plenty, although I didn't really care about hot water, Melaka is boiling hot . 2. Location is walking distance to anywhere in the old town. Right at the entrance to Jonker Walk behind Hard Rock Cafe. 3. Price-wise, don't expect 5-star facilities and treatment. I personally have no complaint. The boys at the hotel were very helpful. 4. Parking is available at the parking area nearby the old city. We parked our car at the area across the street from Casa del Mar for RM10/ night. You tell them you want to overnight your car, they will give you a spot in front instead of way back. It's about 5 - 7 minutes walk from the hotel. 4. There is a 'cafe' at the front of the hotel. Well, you can buy canned drinks from them but no food available. 5. The hotel is co-owned by a local artist. Quite a number of interesting art to enjoy. PS: Don't forget to wear a hat when you walk around Melaka town. For an old city, the trees are surprisingly juvenile. No shades in Jonker area, given that it's a packed area with buildings and narrow streets and side-walks, I can understand that there aren't many trees around that area.
Everything is find!”
Great and simple.”
Excellent. But was hoping for a tv”
Definitely will consider for return stay. Had an excellent meet n greet with the staff and very ideal location to major attraction
Quirky on the outside but... ”
Walking along the street, would need to look carefully to be able to find the hostel because it did not have any protruding signs and we walked past the hostel without noticing. It was more of like a shop front that sells apparels with hostel facilities. It is located near Jonker Street where you can find all the delicious food. At one glance, the hostel looks quirky and interesting. We then noticed that there is only 1 private room and 1 dormitory with 4 beds. We stayed in the dormitory (2nd level). There is 1 shared bathroom on the 1st level. Although the common area outside the dormitory looks like a nice place to hang out with bean bags, tables, chairs and books however do not expect any interactions because at most there will only be 4 people & being in such tropical weather, people will be spending time in the dorm with aircon. Although the bed is neat, it does not look clean. You can actually find dust particles on the metal grills of the bunk as though it has not be dust/ clean before. I wonder if they changed the mattress at all. The pillow is pretty flat which left me with a stiff neck in the morning. Do note that they charge for towel at 5 ringgit. If you are a light sleeper, prepare your own ear plug as you may be woken up by the noise outside. Overall, it is definitely not one of the best hostel experience, will probably pay a little more for a better one next time.
Dirty with Fleas, noisy”
Bad experience, room is dirty with bed bugs. Owner is too young, noisy at night when they owner and friends were talking until 3am preparing for their event for next day. Won't go again or recommend to anyone.
Nice and Easy”
Galvanize Studio is a simple place for adventurous & art goer's to stay. Do not expect 2 to 3 stars service. I enjoy my time there. Their way of decoration makes one feel easily blend in. The staff in Galvanize are helpful. The one thing that i love most about Galvanize is, it is just 20 to 30 feet away from the Jonker Street Entrance & it is situated right opposite of Hard Rock Cafe.
Nice and pleasant stay”
The stay is very comfortable with nice and friendly staffs. The location is just at the heart of jonkers street and therefore food is not a problem there.
quite far from city but great transportation”
so far so good. it's for tourists who want to travel independently and enjoy seeing traditional and local activities or people. Surrounding is exotic. There're alleys and street walls where you can see nice local arts
Very friendly staff and like the art feeling.”
Everything is great but the sheet,the sheep who provided is to thin as will feel cold in night.
the worst ever my monthly stay in malacca”
i stayed in Jonker street every 2 weeks when i visit. so i tried a lot of guesthouses there. Honestly this is my first time and it was my last time. I stayed in their dorm that they called it Nomad. It is a 4 beds room with a basin. the toilet and the shower are together at the downstairs and that is the only toilet they have. they asked me to pic a bed as all were empty and ready, so i picked the under bed. i realized the blanket was smelly when i was ready to use, then the bad smell come out so strong after i opened it then i saw long hairs are sticked on it.obviously they folded it back after the previous person used. then i tried to get the blanket at the upper bed and it smell fresh like after wash. even though i'm the only one to get the room on that day but i saw hairs and dust are all over the room when i checked in. I don't know how long they has not clean that room. with the price that they gave, I don't think it's value for money.
