#14 of 80 Specialty lodging in Tanah Rata
Welcome to DownTown Bunkers . Catering to independent travellers from around the world we offer mostly shared room accommodation and run in-house activities 5 nights a week to make it easy to meet fellow explorers from all around the world. Our beds are solid metal bunks with comfortable innerspring mattresses. The lounge areas are large for a small hostel which allows plenty of room to chill out. There is a tour desk where our friendly staff can help you plan your activities. We offer loads of free stuff and even a simple laundry service. We’re a smaller hostel with a maximum capacity of just 24 people - the perfect number for keeping a family atmosphere which is still fun and vibrant. Being the most central accommodation in town, you’re just a minutes' walk to everything. At night you can sleep soundly as there are no bars directly by us. Operated by a well-travelled owner we draw on experience from having collected the best ideas from hostels.

Cameron Highlands, Malaysia3 contributions2 helpful votes
Had the best time there. Sanjay was the nicest and most adorable host I've seen in my life. Really attentive, caring and always ready to help out and give advice on bokking local tour/ activities and transportation. He has lots of experience travelling around the world and its very pleasant to have a conversation with him. The common area is full of personality and a great place to meet other travellers.qq The place is very clean and tidy which makes you feel you are at your own home there. Over extended my stay there just because how good it was. Would definitely return back if I see my self in Cameron Highlands and I highly recommend this place to all travellers visiting Cameron Highlands.

We stayed in this hostel 5 nights and really enjoyed the stay because it is super clean, the beds are cosy and it’s well located. But it was off-peak so it was not really busy. I would recommend this hostel for an affordable and nice stay in Tanah Rata.
