For my stay in Melaka I chose a pretty little hostel along the river, within walking distance to the historical sights I wanted to see. I booked the hostel from Agoda (non affiliated) and wasn’t disappointed by the place. It had everything I needed; a bed and wifi.
My room had two beds in it, as well as an air conditioner which was very appreciated. Outside the rooms are the washrooms which are what you expect from a hostel.
The part I was most impressed with was the pretty little common room that had a cute egg chair and a great view of the river and the buildings along the bank.
Overall my stay was very enjoyable, the staff were very nice and one of the ladies at reception even gave me an extra bag because she could see the one I had brought with me had broke. I greatly appreciated her kindness.
If you are looking for a short term stay in Malaysia, I highly recommend this hostel.
