I've been here for 2 days and 1 night. Great hospitality, great service, nice staff. The room is very clean and tidy. The toilet is very clean too. They provide free great coffee and great environment. Very accessible one, nearer with the mosque (Masjid Kling) and Jonker flea market. Suggested !

The Jalan-Jalan is definitely one of the best places to stay at for a trip to Melaka. The guest house bears only a few rooms and conveys a relaxed atmosphere. The staff is very nice and helpful, there coffee, water and tea all day, you store food in a fridge and the rooms have nets against mosquitos (except for the...

Stayed here 4 nights (2 in one building in a dorm w/ fan, 2 in the other building in a dorm w/ a/c) and both were very comfortable and clean with a relaxed vibe. Very simple amenities, but there is a washing machine, a fridge, fresh cold water, and tea and coffee available. The managers are very nice and accomadating,...

The staff were okay here, couldn't speak a lot of English but were helpful to the best of their ability. The room felt like I was in an open prison, single beds not bunk beds. Just fans for each bed. The mosquitoes ate me alive even with the appropriate deet spray. There is a nice outside area but there is...

I stayed in the 10 bed fan dorm and spent a really comfortable stay. The beds are disposed one next to the other, so you don't have the problem of climbing in the middle of the night and every bed has its own fan. They also provide a locker to put your important stuff and laundry service. The staff is...

My girlfriend and I stayed in a private double room for two nights, 18th - 20th September 2016. The room was basic but clean, was equipped with a very good fan and a mosquito net. The room was locked with a pad lock that the hostel provided for a 10RM refundable deposit. The staff at Julan Julan were very friendly...

I spent six days here but because of my travel commitments I had to leave. The staff here are super knowledgeable and a great help. The rooms were spacious and clean and for the first time I had an easy chair to sit in. It was an enjoyable stay and so close to restaurants, city sites etc. Well recommended.

Jalan Jalan has to be given credit for it's fantastic location right at the heart of Malaka and less than a minute walk from the main food/market street. Aside from this however it is very basic, felt pretty unclean and the reception staff were not particularly helpful, friendly or welcoming. The main dorm is fine considering the amazingly cheap price...

This hostel was extremely cheap so we didn't expect much. They offered free tea and coffee as well as a tour of the town within the room fee. Melaka is a very sleepy town during the week so I would definitely advise going at the weekends for more to do. The hostel didn't have AC but each bed had a...
