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 updating, it's not that cozy at all. The area where the rooms are is nicely done with a warm (fake) wooden floor. The rooms are what you would expect for this budget, only available with a fan. So it probably is moist the entire length of your stay, but then again, you can't expect more. You have to ask for a blanket en toilet paper, which is ok. A tip to the owners: just provide it in the room, much easier! Bathrooms also in an urgent need of an update. They were clean, but that's hard noticing when everything is worn off. Overall I didn't had a bad stay there, I've seen worse hostels in my life. Also the city of Melaka is wonderful to explore, but only for one or two days, you'll get bored staying there longer.
