Ringo's Foyer Guesthouse

Ringo's Foyer is the friendliest guesthouse in Melaka. It's a relaxed and easy going place perfect for backpackers. We offer budget accommodation in the heart of the city of Melaka. Due to our great location, you are just a few minutes walk from Jonker Street, China Town, Little India and most of Melaka's popular spots. There is no shortage of things to do and see - discover the bustling west end of the city with its local stalls and markets, check out the museums, art galleries, local shops and much more. Or if you prefer, you can chill out on our rooftop, or choose to watch a movie from our endless list!

Work here is very laid back. There's never lots to do so you get plenty of time to talk to other travellers, explore the city or work in your own projects. Melaka is fairly cheap and, like Penang, we have great food. You will have free access to our bicycles, free breakfast, free tea and coffee and your own room!

You will always be treated as a friend. The atmosphere is very relaxed, so you will never feel stressed. Work is easy and we are all very easy going.

My experience volunteering at Ringo’s was amazing. The hostel is very social, there are many activities going on and you have the chance to interact with all the guest. The tasks are properly explained, the shifts are easy and the overall vibe is very good and friendly. I definitely recommend this place💯

Me sentí como en casa. Howard y su familia son súper amables y cálidos, tuvimos un hermoso grupo de voluntarios también.
Las tareas son sencillas y el ambiente es súper relajado. Malacca es una ciudad con muchos atractivos asique voluntariar acá por dos semanas es una gran forma de conocerla y disfrutarla a fondo.
Sin dudas un voluntariado para recomendar y volver!

Howard es un anfitrión inmejorable. Siempre cuidando que los voluntarios y los huéspedes se sientan bien y creando la mejor de las atmósferas! Es flexible, el trabajo es sencillo y te deja mucho tiempo libre para explorar Malaca (una pequeña ciudad encantadora pero con todas las facilidades cerca), disfrutar del hostel (ese rooftop es una pasada!) y las actividades (bike tours, night market...). Eternamente agradecida por la acogida, las personas con las que me ha conectado y la oportunidad de mejorar el inglés. Volvería sin dudarlo :)
