Petter is a good and friendly man who will try to make you feel good in his house, but the circumstances didn't help our exchange.
I rushed to Melaka for this exchange, changing my traveling plans, to discover that it was nothing like what I expected because the exchange description is years out of date.
I suggest other volunteers to have all the info updated from Peter before moving.

I had an awesome time in Melaka. Peter was a really great host, he answered my questions all the time and he gives me tips on how to get to places and where to eat. He also provided food for me and one of the best things is you can cook food, do the laundry and you get a free bike. It is a quiet hostel and clean most of the time.
