              Quiet place - Close to everything”

              As my title says, this place is really quiet and close to everything there is to see. Being close to Jonker Street, the food options are vast. The place itself is very basic in terms of the room and what you get there. But that expectation was set prior to booking and it was good. We did face some issues with the water availability during our stay, probably due to things that are not in control of the property. Maybe the property can mitigate these by installing additional tanks.

              -location is right next to jonker night market -clean room but mattresses and pillow abit hard, having backache after a night (of course this is a cheap deal, can't expect 5 stars pillow) -clean shared bathroom for triple room we booked- website should not mentioned shower in the room's description -since 3 of us were the only group staying, there is no noise interruption as per earlier reviews by other traveller.... -hard to find parking nearby, but there is a RM6 per day per entry opposite Casa del Rio >> 6 minutes walk under hot sun

              This hostel is right next to Jonker Walk. It is so convenient for us to walk around and rest any time we feel tired. The facilities are well decorated in white color which make them look new and clean. Located in the heart of historical town, its design creates a warm welcoming environment during our stay. The front is a bit hard for us to seek for, as sometimes it has car parking infront, calm down to use google map.

              Stayed 1 night in June 2019

              Cozy environment and strategic location”

              No complain with such reasonable price and strategic location. Feels like staying at home, lovely and cozy. There is no parking available however they recommended us to park in a private car park nearby which is about 3-5 min walking distance, very convenient. The socket in the room is universal socket with usb ports. Shared bathrooms and toilets are clean. It could be a little noisy due to the wooden floor, however it is not a big issue to us given that our room neighbours are quite considerate with light footsteps. Common area is cozy and comfortable. Highly recommended for backpackers and those who are looking for budget stay.

              Overall is ok”

              What they provided is good, as each person paid only around RM35. Private rooms with shared baths. Towels, shampoo and shower gel is provided. This is a good option for budget travelling that need private rooms. Soundproofing is bad tho. Freeflow of coffee from coffee machine in common area.

              Very bad at all”

              Firstly, staff was unfriendly, we should wait for a longggg time to enter the hotel because no one open the door for us, and after that the receptionist looks angry with me (I dont know why she looks like that). The hotel is in Jonker Walker, but it is difficult to find the hotel because it's so small in a small street too, cars can not enter this street. The room is very small, hot and not quired (I heard somebody vioces at mid night and in the early morning). At fee RM80, it's much more expensive than other hotels I stayed in KL. Rest room was sharing with others, and it's unclear too. Never come here again.

              Triple room review”

              The overall experience is great and it is definitely value for money. The staff there is friendly and it feels home to stay in Home in the Garden for short vacation with friends. The guest house is next to Jonker street but it is not noisy even though there is night market during night time. There are bottomless drinks available in the guest house and they are free. Rooms are not too big, but same as described; security is good (3 layers- front door, middle door and room). Shared toilets are fine and quite clean with shampoos provided. There are open areas for chit chatting. Bad sides are that the power suply voltage is not strong (used quite long time to charge our phones) and Wifi is quite weak. However, it is cheap in price and it worth! Will definitely recommend to others for this in Melaka!
