  • Description


    Hi ;) We are Jaycee and Jayee from Malaysia and we run a guesthouse & cafe by the river in centre of Melaka. We are located in the heritage zone which is 5 minutes walking distance to Jonker Street. Some of the famous tourist spots such as The Stadthuys, Cheng Hoon Teng Temple, Baba & Nyonya museum, and etc., are only less than 10 - 15 minutes walk. This century-old building is a newly operated (1st July) guesthouse with 7 rooms in total with two rooms consist of 2 custom-made bunk beds each. We also have a small cafe downstairs that serves specialty coffee.

    What else ...

    Melaka is a great city, especially that we are located by the river, and we also have a terrace overlooking it, you WILL fall in love instantly with this guesthouse and city that offers a chill vibe. We would love you to explore around and live, eat, sleep and have fun like a local. You will also love the food here. There are a vegetarian restaurant, noodle shop and traditional coffee shop just nearby our hostel where I always takeaway my lunch. I will only share with you if you help me to takeaway ;)
