We stayed in a couple of places and this was by far the best. Comfortable, hot water, the staff had good knowledge about the trails, and the free hot tea and coffee after a walk in the rain was perfect. Recommended!

This guest house is so nice and low budget hotel plus the location is near to food stall and convenience store. We arrived there late night and the staff is so helpful. Stay there for 2 nights and definitely will stay there again in the future.

The rooms were really clean and there were lounges in- and outside, where you could sit and meet with other backpackers. The guesthouse has it's own restaurant, where you could get breakfast, scones for tea time and dinner. The stuff was really friendly. They explained the different trails to us we could do by our selves and gave us information...

Father's Guesthouse is one of the best places I've ever stayed at! All people working here are unbelievebly nice and really care about you and your problems. You can book tours here, which are really good value for money and get good advice for trekking on your own. Also you can book bus tickets. The crew would not try to...

The hostel itself was nice enough, good location and a nice café next door. We booked 2 nights in their dorm, which was a huge mistake. Apart from smelling horrible and the seiling being rotten, all the beds in the dorm were full of bedbugs. When we notified the staff the response was, "What do you want me to do...

If you want a nice low budget hostel with friendly staff, clean rooms and good breakfast & dinner you need to stay here. Book a secret tour with Jason and you will love your stay in the Cameron Highlands.

I stayed here late april, for 4 nights, it was such sweet relief after the heat of Penang. I found the staff really lovely and helpful. Beds (slept one night in dorm and the other 3 in private room) were comfortable. I was travelling solo and this was a great place to meet other travellers, I had some lovely talks...

This is definitely the best budget guesthouse in the area but definitely room for improvement. I stayed in early April in a private room and ensuite. The best thing about the room was it was clean and had a strong wifi connection. The room is cleaned every day which was an added bonus. The breakfast on site was good value...

We only stayed here for one night due to our private room being right next to a 10 bed dorm and the shared bathroom they had, along with a rooster who made noise all night. If you are a heavy sleeper this won't be a problem but unfortunately I am not! The staff are so friendly and helpful and the...

Great value stay. Our stay here was comfortable and clean. Staff were always friendly and helpful. The restaurant does good breakfast at cheap prices. Wish we could have stayed here longer but they were fully booked. Book in advance as it fills up quickly because lonely planet recommends it. Tours were cheaper along the main road.
