The staff of the hostel is very good. They are willing to explain and tell you a lot about the sights and where to go in the Cameron. The garden is a nice place to chill just as the hostel. Make sure to bring musquitorepellant as you will need it desperately!!


Small dorms, a lot of mosquitoes in the showers and the 4 bed dorms. Poor wifi. Kind and helpful staff though.


Unwelcoming atmosphere, dark and cold dorm room in the back, didn't feel save because doors were open, no nice furniture and decorations in the entire hotel and restaurant


Nice guesthouse with fairly good facilities. There is a basic restaurant on the site and the hostel is only a 5 minute walk from the main street in Tanah Rata. Good atmosphere with plenty of other travellers. The staff helped me to plan my hikes and gave me good advice of what to do in the area. The only downside was that there aren't lockers in the dorm room.


Close to the center, some VERY helpful staff members, sized but clean and comfortable bedrooms. Nice areas.


Very friendly and helpful staff but the room did not smell good and the walls were super thin.


Room is a little bit small, and the location is a bit far from the main road. However, the staffs and atmosphere is amazing!


This place was just fine. A little more expensive than other similar rooms we've booked in Malaysia. Nonetheless it was clean and staff is very friendly. There's also a garden.


Clean and beautiful place to stay. Conveniently located. Walls are too thin however. Also wish there were better food options especially for the evening.


Stayed in the dorm. It is nothing more than a 4 person room. Walls are thin in the whole guesthouse. Its a clean place and staff always wants to help you. Nothing special, but good for a 2 nights stay to visit cameron highlands.

If you go there, take a dorm. Because the private "room" are not really rooms but closets. And it's not a way to speak. Our private room was literally a depressing windowless closet. So without real walls, you can hear your neighbors breath. Otherwise this place is clean, wifi ok and owner friendly. But you can find real room for the same price elsewhere in town.


Decent place to stay in the Cameron Highlands. Easy to get to from the bus station. Walls are very thin though but not too much noise when we were there.


Pros: Helpful staff, short walk from the centre of town, can organise day trips and buses etc. Cons: Cold showers, and I mean cold, slow internet


Very basic but nice place to explore the Cameron Highlands. Less than 5 min walk to the main road with all the restaurants. Very friendly and helpful owner, she can tell you anything about trails and hikes. Not really recommended for light sleepers though as the walls are very thin.


Very firendly staff, lockers for the dorm would be nice.

The best guesthouse I stayed in all of Malaysia! Don't stay anywhere else. Location is great as a centre to explore the Highlands. The directions make it seem like a long walk from the bus station, it isn't. Very easy to get to. The staff are really relaxed and helpful, really feels like you are chilling at someone's home.


One key to a room of four is not really safe. The door must remain open so that the roommates there in may.


There aren't many options for accommodation in Cameron highlands so we went with this one purely as this was the only one available with a private room. Rooms are cubicles with sliding doors so you can hear everything going on in all the different cubicles along the corridor. One of the worst hostels we have stayed in so far. So cold on a night.


I thought the place was really nice and the staff very helpful. There is only thing I didn't really like which is that sounds in the bathroom seem to be amplified, everything in there is so loud. Some insulation under the tiles could probably solve that problem.


The location is ok, walking distance from the bus station. The staff helped us organize a trip to the must-see places like mossy forest, tea plantation, butterflies. However it got pretty cold at night, I personally found the provided blanket not enough, especially that the walls in the dorm had holes.
