I've been there at December 2015 in dormitory-room. All staff is very kind and helpful. Wi-Fi is good and stable. In my opinion - the best place to stay in Tanah Rata (again - I've living in mixed dorm). If I'll return to Tanah Rata one day - I'll stay there with no doubt. P.S. if staff is reading this...

Nice communal area, free tea and coffee, very helpful staff, shower was only lukewarm, private room was comfortable but noisy due to a cockerel crowing at all hours! "No shoes indoors" policy which is annoying.

We had a double room with shared bathroom. The guesthouse in general as well as the room and the bathroom are spotless. The room was spacious and comfortable. There is no A/C in the room but this was not a problem at all as the weather is always cool, the fan does the job perfectly. The staff were friendly and...

We stayed here for a couple of nights during our trip to the Cameron Highlands. Good if you're just looking for somewhere to rest your head in between exploring the area. The front desk staff are lovely and very helpful, and the half-day countryside tour they recommended was excellent. The rooms are very basic (don't come here expecting a 'hotel'...

We had a double room with shared bathroom. The room was clean and had what you need! The bathroom was quite dirty, because it was shared by about 10 people. The staff was very nice and helpful!! The location is great as well. Although we didn't sleep quite well, because some other guest just don't know how to behave, we...

I stayed here for two nights in a dorm room. Even though the room contained many beds, it did not feel packed. It did smell slightly humid, probably that can't be avoided due to the climate though. One issue was that there are no safety lockers, so either you leave your valuables with reception, or you cross your fingers and...

This was a great hostel, staff were friendly, rooms were clean. We were in a 10 bed dorm but saw some of the private rooms and they looked awesome. Only downside was the single toilet/shower room dedicated to the dorm, not really enough but there was another one on our floor that was meant to just be for two of...

The room was clean but with a humid smell. Since it was on the first floor and the window faced the restaurant area, you could hear everyone very early having breakfast. Walking distance to the main street and very nice personnel.

Big and clean rooms with fans. Shared bathroom was also ok. Tee / coffee 24/7. Staff helped us a lot planing our hiking trips and was really friendly. Cafe next to it has medium priced breakfast and really good&cheap coffee. Everything is reachable by foot

we enjoyed our stay in the Fathers Guest House, it's nice and clean and has friendly staff and free cafe and tea around the clock. The Hostel also has its own cafe for breakfast and you can book tours around the Highlands at the reception
