    simply wonderful, Howard and his wife are such lovely hosts, nothing is to much trouble and the vibe around the place is so chilled out and relaxing, we loved it here and would happily go back again and again. Howard knows great places to eat, he takes groups of people who are interested about once a week but suggests places to you as well, great location, central without being noisy. Great to have drinking water, tea and coffee, nice touch having toast for breakfast too and a fridge to be able to use, just a great chilled out place.

    Really sociable hostel, great for single travellers as the staff introduce you to all the guests when you arrive. Comfy lounge area with loads of movies available for downtime. The place itself could do with a little care here and there but the staff more than make up for this and it is comfortable and clean.

    Very near bus stop & everything. The only downside is agoda charged me for extra festival activity as my stay falls on long weekend holiday.

    There maybe are swankier joints to stay in up and coming Malacca but this place is one of a kind, the quirky decor and home feel instantly make you feel like your staying with friends and this makes every guest at ease. Its has also very clean and comfortable rooms at incredible value for its location and extras like water are very fairly priced. This is easily our favourite guest house in Malaysia.

    Ringo's is great, Howard the owner and manager is great and Malacca is pretty good too. There's still alot of work to do to make it perfect but it's a big place and that will take time. The rooftop garden is cool, but hot temperature wise and the view is fantastic. We stayed in the room with the big bed - very lush for old backpackers like us. Howard leads a nightly tour of Jonker Walk, especially good when the night market is on. We Recommend it all.

    Food glorious food, stuff on stick again and Paul is now beginning to sound dangerously like Greg Wallace from MasterChef, it's all about the flavour balances, how the subtle hints of lemon or tamarind accentuate the dish or how the texture combinations create a dance in your mouth and just as you think the dish tastes of one thing, another …

    I was up early again for my flight to Penang and got to the airport without any problems. I had just enough time to grab a bottle of water and sit down for 15 minutes before we were boarding. I did get a few strange looks which I put down to the fact I was the only non-Asian person on the plane. The flight was pretty empty and I got an entire row …

    The bus from KL to Malacca (or Melaka, it's hard to tell which is the real spelling) only took about two hours and I arrived at the bus terminal with instructions on how to get to the hostel. I was waiting for a public bus when I spotted the two Norwegian guys I'd met the day before, Leik and Trym. I said hello and they decided they would join me …

    I received an extremely warm welcome at Ringo's, a guesthouse that had been recommended to me by someone I had met in Singapore. The accommodation was very basic, but was clean and comfortable. Andrew showed me to my dorm, gave me a tour of the place and introduced me to the other guests which was a great way of breaking the ice. That evening I …
