The owner is really really nice and helpful. He tried to do everything he can to comfort us. As a long term traveller, I did not meet any boss would do that to us. As he said, Codalmom, as hostel, as home.
Owner tries to make you feel athome. Nice size room. Free coffee and tea. Good wifi.
Front door locked on the outside so no fire escape. Have to take of shoes but no carpet.
Location on a street with lots of cheap food options, 10mins walk or less to Jonker St and the main square. Hours after I'd checked in one of the staff came up to me with a map to show me the locations of interesting things to see in Melaka, which I appreciated!
The dorm room had no windows, so you couldn't wake up with the sunlight in the morning (or even know when it was morning except by checking the time on your phone or something). The staff member on duty when I checked in spoke VERY little English, which was awkward (but not insurmountable). Also the place was kind of tricky to find because it's in an area where all the streets have almost the same name… but before I got there I was emailed a handy set of directions including landmarks to watch out for on the way which helped a lot! There's no air conditioning in common areas, and (so far as I saw) nowhere to store or prepare food, so you really have to eat out (but at least you don't have to go far for cheap, delicious goodness).
we can use computer by free..
board name so small, so difficult to find this guest house. No breakfast. Water in the bahtroom so slow. One of toilet not so strong, i think will be off.
Location, big room.
Not good equiped bathroom - the toilet could be separated from the bath.
The hotel is very nice and clean. It is comfortable because of the AC. There is no mosquito then you can have a good sleep. I will chose it next time when i go to Malacca. :)
Like the boss ah kuan is very clean , friendly and very nice Got bicycleeeeee :3 Free wifiiii and free pc playing ~ ^^
Share toilet with some dirty people... poor ah kuan need to wash the toilet many times! ><
The environment is very comfort as the decoration got the home feelings.
However, the wifi is not really stable as sometimes we can't even access.
It's cheap and with air-conditioner so I call it quite comfortable. Also the young owner has been very friendly and patient.
It's a bit difficult to find and actually the map provided by the hostel wasn't very good. I got lost twice because of this map until I got another one from the tourist centre. There were two shared bathrooms in total, both run out of toilet paper, one with the light broken. There were no place to put the clothes in unless the hooks next to the shower. Everything got wet when the shower finished.
Nice staff, even if it is not in the center there are restaurants very close to the hostel and Melaka is not big so you can walk easily everywhere, coffee and water all the time, and pc. Enough clean. They send you good instructions to reach the hostel.
No towels, no breakfast.
good location, reasonable diatance to the main attractions. Nice staff, they really give you a quiet room and envoirment to stay. We were late to catch the bus so they offered to take us to the bus station.
A little hot in the public area, but it's the problem of the weather of melaka.
Social atmosphere Staff have great ideas on what to do in the city Friendly environment
Location near jongker street, many food near hostel,wi fi,like at home
Thanks for the printer
Far From city centre
everything was great. thank you for the great hospitality Ah Kuan! will definitely come back again.
I love staying in this simple hostel. For the first time, I thought that it will be a spooky place, dirty, and uncomfortable. In fact, I was totally wrong. I love this hostel. Cardamom staff is very friendly, helpful and fun. The room is large and very clean. I love the atmosphere. I love the interior. I wish I go there more, more, and more.
Nothing. I love all about Cardamom
nice host of the guesthouse, Kuan and Xi are both nice and friendly, clean room and located not far fm Jonker street, also nice river view

Hostel signboard very small, a little bit difficult to find at the beginning
1. Room is clean and conform 2. WiFi is available in room 3. Provided coffee and tea for free 4. Early check in allowed
The location is not in the center, have to walk around 10 minute only reach Jonker Street .
Owner very friendly, even drop off at bus station!
a very pretty and cosy hostel quite close to Melaka's Chinatown, very clean (I guess it is a new place) so quite a good comfort for a very low price. Very pleasant and helpful staff, they printed us a map of their own design.
as a family, owner A-Kuan is a good mandarin speaker ,and very nice man.(and his wife ~)
lock of the door is not so convenient.
Friendly, cheap and clean. Place for making tea etc. Rooms quite big and airy.
Staff are not on duty 24/7, so no help when others are rowdy.
super friendly staff and the accom is in walking distance to Jonker Street. Directly next to the hostel is a really nice place to eat delicious Roti for breakfast
