We left Melaka at 8am; we actually had transport to get us to the bus station this time, rather than a long walk
It rained last night which took the heat out of the air; it was quite a pleasant morning
We got to the bus station with plenty of time to spare (2 hours) so it was kick our heels just waiting for the …
... and the beached. Back on the bubble car we saw these stunning villas on the waters edge with their own pools and thought you must be pretty darn rich to own one of those! Had some dinner, I had steak and jay ribs. On the way back we found wiggans doppelgänger which made us chuckle. Got back to the hostel and chilled! We did see two blonde Asians and tried to match them to amber and dan but other than the hair, it just didn't ...

How has this hostel rated in the past?
Just to state, I hate dormitories, they arent safe, everything has to be locked away, this place is the same, no privacy, security of any thing non existant, if you have anything you would like to keep, take it out with you
