Had no intention on staying here when I arrived in cameron highlands but a driver from the hostel came to the bus as we arrived and I was tempted by the price! At 15-18RM a night (as shown on the leaflet he had provided me).. so thought why not! Followed him to the mini bus to get a lift to...

Stayed here for 2 nights as it seemed like the cheapest place in an otherwise expensive town (for the budget backpacker). Staff were fairly pleasant on check in. Gave us a small discount for staying 2 nights... Wish we had haggled for more though. Room was fairly small and floor had dirt in the corners. The bed/pillows didn't smell overly...

I stayed here after being greeted by a chap as we jumped off the bus, sounded cheap so we stayed! Good points: Sometimes friendly staff. Great location. Cheap room. Reasonably clean. Good laundry service. Bad points: Terrible wifi If you don't like dogs don't go! Every time I tried a shower it was cold, the worst thing after a 10mile...

We've stayed here for one week and really enjoyed the place. We were a bit scared of the comments on tripadvisor but then it was so nice. We got told that they changed many things the last two months. The rooms and showers (hot water) were clean and there are nice areas to chill and hang out. The staff is...

Daniel's lodge is a true backpackers hostel in cameron highlands. The room that we stayed was basic but it was very clean and neat. The shower and toilet was really great with hot shower and strong water pressure. It was the best hot shower we had since 3 months of travelling. They also have a bar which sold the cheapest...

Clean, comfortable rooms with hot showers for a reasonable price ! Staff very friendly and helpful. Good location for local treks and good food. The jungle bar beside the hostel was fun at night with a fire to warm up and meet new people !

Can't complain for the price. Really budget yet clean. Do not expect for splurge or high class accommodation. Overall, I like the building built up as its by it own yet not to near or too far from the main busy loud street. Its good! Will come back...

Reception staff are unwelcoming and unhelpful, which is unnecessary. Great atmosphere and reasonable prices at the bar. Possibility one of the best places in town to meet people whilst having a drink.

The hostel was very basic, but the communal areas were ok. The bus service the hostel offers is absolutely horrible: the driver was driving like a manic, which resulted in near-accidents multiple times. He was driving way faster than everyone else on the road and we were constantly launched through the bus. We were happy to arrive in one piece.

Looking for budget hotel in Cameron Highlands? Look no more as this is a highly recommended accommodation to stay by Lonely Planet. "This is a popular laid-back party hostel in scruffy area just off the main road, there's a TV room, late bar, pool table and garden and some saggy sofas out the front." We are sure you would like the warmth and personal touch of the place.
