Samudera Backpackers

Our rating:
3 stars, based on 1 expert review

The migration of Melaka's backpackers to the riverside area means that many of the Melaka Raya area guesthouses have closed their doors, and Samudera is one of the few that remains.

Up the stairs you'll find an assortment of 18 simple rooms with the usual choices of fan or air-con and shared or attached bathroom. It's not an easy task to prettify the gritty concrete building, but staff have tried to brighten things up with brightly coloured sheets and mismatched furniture. In true backpacker fashion, there's a homely common area with TV and a library of travel guides. Some 24-hour food joints are nearby and the laidback staff can arrange cheap laundry service.
