Feel of a hostel, with very friendly and helpful staff, and social atmosphere, but lovely clean double room with en suite bathroom. At a decent price too. Would stay here again if we return to Tanah Rata and have no hesitation in recommending it.

First of all: the staff is super friendly! The hostel had a convenient location, as it's off the main road but still close to the bus station. The beds are comfi. Showers are ok: sometimes the water was cold. There are enough places to hang out. Book in advance to make sure you have a bed, as it's quite a...

We stayed here for two nights. The room was fine, but the bathroom has definitely seen better days. Especially the shower wasn't the best we've seen so far. The staff was super friendly and helpful though. The common areas are pretty nice but the silent hours are taken very serious around here (and we were simply chatting to each other...

Considering this is pretty much the cheapest place in town I was very satisfied. I had a private room with a shared bathroom and it was perfect for a couple of days and nights exploring the highlands. The staff helped sort out tours. There is lots of communal space and the cafe was nice for breakfast. It is a 3...

Rooms are good although the bathrooms are little bit old and not logical engineered. The location is good and the breakfast is outstanding (if you like cheese, go for the scrambled eggs with a massive layer of cheese). The staff is helpful regarding the different forrest tracks. Overall I would recommend this place, a nice and chill atmosphere we you...

We stated 2 nights and very happy with our accommodations. Staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. We were able to book our 4x4 tour of Cameron Highlands at office. Great cafe with excellent prices and food. Centrally located, minutes walk to the main street and bus station. Clean, comfortable private room/bath. Great value. Highly recommend!!

Stayed here for two nights while we looked around the Cameron Highlands. Comfortable room (we were in the dorms) and friendly staff who were very helpful with tours/walks etc. Good location, 2min walk to the main strip in Tanah Rata, nice that's it's not on the main road. Their dining area was in a nice garden setting and very reasonably...

We had a comfortable stay for couple of nights. Recommended! The front desk lady was helpful in giving us tips about the surrounding area of Tanah Rata. We found her advice particularly useful when making a visit to the tea plantations. The rooms are very basic. Cleanliness was acceptable for this price and overall standard. It seems that the upkeep...

This hostel is perfect for this location! Very relaxed atmosphere and sore ally easy to make friends. I fully recommend taking the 5/6 hour trekking tour offered by the hostel. The guide, Jason, is incredibly knowledgeable and makes the whole trek very interesting!
