L'armada Guesthouse was definitely a great value. I stayed here for one night in a single room. The bathroom was kept very clean, and the sheets on the bed appeared to have been washed. The location is also excellent, as Chinatown and the old city were very close by. If you are looking for cheap, no frills accommodation in Melaka,...

rooms are small, very small. no air conditioner. in this part of the world, if you are coming from Europe or America, you must have an aircon. Noisy place. One can easily hear all the cars passing by the guesthouse. Lizards are in the rooms; you sleep, then open your eyes and you can easily spot them. Mosquitoes are everywhere;...

We stayed here for 3 nights while backpacking through Malaysia and had a great experience. The guesthouse was fairly quiet when we were staying there and we booked a private room so I'm not too sure what the experience of the dorms is like. They do look fairly open. Because it was low season we paid 30RM for our room...

The hostel is a nice place to stay during your stay in Malaka, the location is very nice and just 10 min walk to the very famous Jonker street and all the tourist accommodations. To get to the hostel is only 10 taxi or bus ride from the bus station. The place is ok, you get what you pay.

As others have stated already, the guesthouse is located in an old concrete building on the 4th flour, so it's a bit of a hassle to get up there if you have lots of luggage. Most people staying there are backpackers though, so it shouldn't be that much of a problem. The communal area is rather dark and needs some...

This is a hostel situated on the third floor of an empty office block with entry to the hostel being a non-descript glass door. You gain entry via the buzzer to the door. There are door frames on entering the hostel but no doors in them. I had originally booked a single room but was upgraded to a double room...

I loved this place, have stayed twice, the second time over a month. It's on the edge of china town and my single room had a view of the river. The room itself had a (comfortable) bed, two electric sockets, light and fan (and window). There were two toilet showers in the hall (clean, with hot water) and another two...
