Me and my wife was looking for a cheap night stay.. juz a couple of hours of wink before continuing our journey from Singapore via night bus.. chancing upon this hostel.. and with all the good reviews.. decided to give it a try..
we will be arriving in malacca around 2am.. and we did our part in filling that out in the online reservation form....
To our dismay and horror... upon reaching with some delay at about 0250am.. nobody answer the door.. no one pick up the call. The phone numbers stated on the door belong to some guys who dont work there anymore..
After 20 mins we are finally let in.. climbing up to the 3rd floor reception area... to our horror.. we were met with a guy sitting on the sofa... sounding drunk... telling us... "me.. reception, me also boss... what you want..!" I explain that I have a reservation... n he cut in saying " I know you have a reservation... so what... look at time... its 3 o'clock.."
Upon hearing that.... I juz told him I will cancel the reservation.... n he replied "u want cancel... gd" all the while sounding drunk...
We juz head out the door and left....
Will never ever recommend
Don't wish for anyone else to be left in the lurch again...
