i found out about this place after I was stopped by a guy in bus station who asked me if was looking for a place to stay. This guy, working for Ajit Guest House was kind of a friendly tout, but a very honest one at that. He showed me how ti get ti the guest house by bus, and when i arrived the guest house even refunded my RM1.50 bus fare.
The downstairs living and kitchen area is very warm and welcoming, with Japanese style wooden floors (shoes off). The dorm where I stayed is big enough to have single beds rather than bunks.(In K.L I stayed in places where dorm rooms were tiny and cramped, no such thing here.
Noticeably, the staff are always around on hand if you need any help at all, or just want to ask something. This doesn't happen in a lot of places..
Great location also, next to all of Melakka's historic sights.
