Hostelz.com's Review
Le Village Guesthouse Melaka is one of the most relaxed hostels we've ever stayed in. It feels more like you are staying at your friend's house than a hostel. This hostel is a great place if you want to stay somewhere for a longer time, but of course it is a great place to stay in for only one night. The very late check-out time (2 p.m.) also makes it convenient if you are catching a late bus and need a place to hang out until your bus leaves.

The Location

The hostel is located in an amazing area in the heart of the UNESCO world heritage city Melaka. If you come to Melaka by bus, you can take a taxi straight to the hostel or settle for a cheaper option and take the local bus to the maritime museum (the huge old Portuguese merchant-sailing-ship-turned-museum) and walk from there about few hundred meters to the hostel. Most of the sights in Melaka are within walking distance of the hostel. Melaka in general is a great place to walk around in. The are shops and a market just a few minutes walk away. There are dozens of restaurants within a radius of few hundred meters, the closest one being a really nice place, serving good and cheap food twenty-four hours a day/seven days a week, just five meters from the hostel doorstep.

Rooms and Bathrooms

You choose from single, double, and twin rooms and a mixed dorm. All of the rooms have fans -- there are no air-con rooms available. The rooms do not have safety lockers but the entrance of the hostel has a locked door with a security code and there is also a twenty-four-hour reception so it is quite safe to leave your stuff in the rooms.

All rooms have shared bathrooms. There are western-style toilets as well as Asian-style squatting toilets. There is no hot water in the showers. In the shower areas there are hooks to hang your clothes on and soap dishes.

Common Spaces

There is a kitchen for guests if you prefer to cook your own food. They provide free coffee, tea, and drinking water. There is a fridge where you can store your drinks and food. There is a TV lounge with sofas where you can watch DVDs or choose from one of the dozens or maybe hundreds of channels the satellite TV has to offer. There is also a chill-out room where you can paint, make music, be creative, or just hang out and get to know like minded people. They have ticket and laundry services, luggage storage, and free Wi-Fi.

Summary

This is a very relaxed and chilled-out hostel where you can meet other travelers, but not a party place. It's the perfect place to stay for longer and really get to know the amazing city of Melaka.
