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.

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.

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.

Owner is super friendly, explains everything about the city and things which can be done. Can book tours and tickets here. Nice beds. Book cheapest room, than you are on the ground floor and there is wifi in the room. Not on 2nd floor.

The lady working at the reception was very helpful and willing to provide all the information about the travelling and activities around. The location is ok and the facilities are fairly clean. The negative is that it was extremely cold at night at the dorm room. Probably because there was something like open ventilation shafts at the room and the walls are very thin. Sleeping bag or warm clothes are highly recommended.

Basic hostel near the main road of Tanah Rata. Staff very welcoming, helpful and knowledgable about the area including any hints on which trails to go/not to go! Walls paper thin in the bedroom but breakfast good.

Really thin walls, so prepare for cold mornings. The host is really nice and helpful with tours when you arrive. The beakfast is around 4-7RM and pretty good too. Really good value for money at 20rm/night.

Very basic but then it is a cheap hostel! The dorm could do with warming up a bit, feels a bit damp and dank. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Ridiculously squeaky beds, bring ear plugs!
