It was OK, only receptionist guy wasn't really nice.
Located away from the main road the location is nice and peaceful but also a little concerning for a solo women traveller. Whilst the atmosphere was relaxing during the day at night the noise of the nearby Jungle Bar was quite annoying, especially when people did not care about the level of noise they were making even at 1am! Noises nearby were cause for concern as there is no real security anywhere or any kind. Facilities were basic but enough. Reception helped to arrange tours which was good
It will be great if hair dryers can be provided in common toilet, essential for humid environment like cameron highland.

Had a private room for 50rm a night. Pillows were horrible! Showers and toilets were clean but a bit old. NO PICK UP SERVICE!!!! I sended an email for a pick up at 1pm and they confirmed it but i arrived an hour earlier than expected so i decided to walk to the hostel (not really far). When i arrived at the place i told the guy they didnt have to pick me up anymore. He told me that they don't have pick up service and when i told him that they confirmed my email about pick up he got confused.
Rooms are clean but very small. More like a wardrobe than a room. Location is good, but in Cameron Highlands everything is nearby. There are 2 main problems in this place. 1st: in Cameron Highlands nights are cold. Blankets are very thin and too small to cover all your body, basically you will be freezing if you don't have your own sleeping bag, because you enter your room directly from the backyard, no corridor or hallway. 2nd: toilets and showers are basically outside so you will be freezing.
Quite a nice atmosphere for travellers, especially those looking to meet people. But cleanliness is a real issue. A massive cockroach or some sort of insect latched onto my arm the very first night which freaked me out and there were insects crawling around my floor every now and again. And this was the ensuite private room. Staff aren't as helpful as they could be and shut up reception quite early around 8/9pm and instead redirect you to the bar where I found nobody to help me.
Stayed 2 nights in double room. Room was functional for what we needed i.e. basic but was fine. Had a slightly weird smell. Good outdoor seating for hanging out. Drinks available from the reception. Would recommend (the rest of the budget accommodation in Tanah Rata looked pretty rough and we noted several people changing from others to this hostel).
