Ranked #51 of 143 Speciality Lodging in Melaka
Reviewed 4 February 2008

We stayed at the Travellers' Lodge in what I recall was a RM50 ($AUD18) air conditioned room with attached bathroom. It was a fantastic place to stay for a few days as there was a communal kitchen with fridge to keep all your food and drinks cold, a laundry, and a very comfortable and secluded roof terrace (a great place to wile away the afternoon, as well as hang your clothes out to dry). Luckily, while Muslim tradition does not allow pork products to be kept in the hostel fridge, they're much more lenient with the alcohol, which can be purchased from one of the nearby enormous shopping centres. The shopping centres are also good eating places at night when you don't feel like venturing right into town.

The hostel was in a convenient location to explore the historical attractions of the city, and wasn't far from the river (a trip on one of the river boats is an absolute must). We will definitely return to this hostel when next we're in Melaka.

I was met off the bus from KL by one of the guys that work here, as I'd already looked at it on the web I decided to stay here. They give you directions on how to reach the hostel buy bus (which cost 80 cents) or they can arrange a taxi for RM15 ( the taxi driver they use is a real character!)
I decided to treat myself here and went for a double with a/c which at RM50 (approx £7.50) was still really cheap! The room was clean and comfortable - and seem to have been fairly newly renovated, the bed was huge!! The bathroom was a good size and had a nice hot shower.
As I was only there for 1 night I didnt really see much of the hostel but the common area seemed nice and there were always people sitting in it. The hostel its self is a bit of a rabbit warren and took me a awhile to find my way to the exit. It is best known for having a rooftop terrace and which I wished I'd had time to chill out on there.

The location is fine, its about a 10 min walk from the center, there is a big new shopping mall close by which has places to eat in it and a good selection of shops. Melaka its self is quite compact and you can see the main sights in half a day to a day.

I'd certainly recommend the hostel and Melaka is a good place to break your journey between Singapore and Kuala Lumpur.
