      Great value & location!”

      good location, good value for money

      I stay 4d3n from 21 till 24 June 2012, it was a pleasant stay. At first I couldn't find the place, luckily I had a phone with GPS. The easiest way to identify Travellers Planet Hostel is Bunga Raya Pork Porridge restaurant which is just across the street. In front of the hostel can see the new landmark in Malacca which is the Taming Sari tower. To the right, there are Dataran Pahlawan Melaka Megamall, Mahkota Parade & Hatten Square nearby, which is a good news for shoppers. Nadeje cake shop at Mahkota Parade (next to KFC) is a must try when visiting Malacca. A Famosa & St Paul's Church are just next to Dataran Pahlawan. To the left, there are Christ Church & Jonker street (Chinatown which famous with night market during Fri, Sat, Sun night and Chicken Rice Ball) across the Malacca river, or walk further along Jalan Laksamana till Public Bank and turn right, there is the Little India and the infamous Capitol Satay Celup, make sure to reach before 4:30pm else would have to queue at least 1 hour. Overall I am satisfied with my stay, nearby there is a food court "Newton Food Culture Village" selling nice Chinese food, weekend nights also have normal Malay style night market, the pork porridge across the street is so delicious! If want some nightlife may go to MIXX at Mahkota Parade. Too bad most of my photos were gone because my phone was stolen when I took bus to Malacca Sentral.

      Decent place for short stay.”

      Aircondition is working really well. Room size is acceptable and clean

      It was a pleasant one night stay at Travellers Planet Hostel. WIFI is free and of moderate speed. Aircon is new hence working really. The bed is comfortable enough. Blankets and towels are available for rent. It's not much which is just 2 ringgit each. Breakfast is free (bread and jam) w/ tea served. It's their custom to take off your shoes when going about the common are and into your room. Bathroom is clean, with the loo and shower being separate. I myself am not fond of sharing bathrooms when traveling, but the hostel is well-maintained and you don't relatively have to share the loo with lots of backpackers which makes it a perfect place for short stay The staff managing the place also provides some good tips on how to go about in Malacca and the places of interests. Melaka, itself is just a small town so everything is walkable. I managed to see the "hotspots" in half a day

      This place made our stay in Melaka a good one”

      Staff & guests, lounge area, location

      We booked this place whilst travelling Malaysia through Agoda and booked purely on the reviews it got. We arrived later than anticipated at Travellers Planet but we received a warm welcome and he showed us to our room which was large and bright and top of the guesthouse. He also showed us the common longue area for guests where you can laze around, read, watch DVDs, buy one of the cheapest beers in town at 6RM and also a separate kitchen area to make tea, coffee and have use of the large fridge. The location is excellent, a few minutes walk to the centre and jonker street, beside night market and malls whilst many eateries around also. We stayed here for 4 nights and loved it, we met many fellow travellers and had such fun sitting up with them having a drink and talking about life and having a laugh. This experience coupled with Melaka made this one of our favourite places on our tour of Malaysia. The advice and recommendations given were fantastic and he truely went out his way to make the experience at Travellers Planet an enjoyable one. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this place and do hope one day that I can visit again as us two scottish girls had a ball

      Friendly, Clean, Cosy, At the city center

      although we arrived very late(11pm),we were warmly greeted and nicely explained about the hotel features. the common movie room provided did allow the travelers to interact with each other. even though we did not join them much, their laughter did add to the friendly atmosphere very much. we choose fan room with shared bathroom for 4 days& 3 nights. the room is not too hot and the bathroom is very clean and big. although we suspected that the bed sheet was not clean always,it was just a small matter as we were looking for a budget travel the hotel is very near to tourist attraction spot, shopping complex and food stalls. during weekends, there are night markets (pasar malam) around the area too. besides, we were very pleased as the bicycles could be kept overnight inside the hostel! overall, we love the vibrant colour and friendly atmosphere of the hostel. we will highly recommend it to our friends ^^

      The manager picks You up at the Sentral Terminal. He is only happy to see You, sometimes euphoric about that, but don't worry, he will only help You, even if You don't stay in his hostel. Trust him, it's Ajid. The Travellers Planet is my home in Melaka. I stayed there for more than one week. And will go back. Once we had a family with seven kids evennthat worked. Farewell.

      Excellent Service

      We think that the place is very convenient which is really near to Shopping Complex, Dataran Pahlawan and Mahtoka Parade. Another amazing thing is that the famous cake shop Nadeje is just behind of the Travellers Planet Hostel. Besides that, the walking distance to Jonker walk is just about 10 minutes. Whereas, there are still have drawbacks, blanket is too thin, a lot of mosquitoes, and low quality of towel. It's still fair for the room rates and good services are provided. Overall I will rate this hostel for 7 out of 10.

      Cheap clean rooms. Hostel is right in the middle of Melaka city. I travelled with my grand son aged 4 and my wheel-chair bound father aged 84. You do not need to pay big money to have access to the wheel-chair facilities in Melaka city. From the hostel a variety of good food options are available depending on to your budget. After your shopping, sight seeing and dining trips, you can always return to clean rooms which is just a walking distance from the city. What more do you want?

      Farhan and Nash (the staff) are cool guys who are always available to assist you with whatever you need. I stayed in a room with a king size bed, toilet and shower was shared. Travellers Planet is close to the Melaka Megamall and the Menara (tower) Melaka. Most of the museums are walking distance and so is the Dutch square. I found it to be a pretty nice place to stay for a couple of days as I was passing through and though of seeing what Melaka had to offer as I continued you my backpacking journey.

      as a travelling couple who works online we booked a double room with air-con and shared bathroom (room 5). first impressions was that it's clean, spacious enough and has a small desk and one chair (horrah!). although we're not a fan of sharing bathrooms, our level was quiet and so the bathroom wasn't used much = it was really clean oh shower and toilet are separate. some hostels have toilet and shower in the same cubical. only thing i'll recommend is bring your own toilet paper. there isn't any provided but a hose. another big plus for us is free wifi (breakfast is a bonus). strong wifi connection in our room. they sell beer 6rm and big bottle water for 2rm from their fridge. overall our stay was pleasant and we would come stay again.

      My stay at Traveller's Planet Hostel was quite good, albeit short (one night). Location was great as it was a five minute walk from the main attractions but far enough that you aren't bothered with traffic/sound/etc. Room was clean however there was a small leak in the bathroom when using the faucet- otherwise I would say it was fine.

      Good location and within walkable distance to most of the attractions. Not provided with a towel or blanket but for the cost of the room I can’t complain too much. Mostly very clean but had a few issues with finding a dirty toilet with pee all over. Housekeeping kept regular checks on the toilets and this was between being cleaned, so this was more of an issue with a guests cleanliness rather than the hostels. Otherwise, I enjoyed my stay.
