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.

Feel of a hostel, with very friendly and helpful staff, and social atmosphere, but lovely clean double room with en suite bathroom. At a decent price too. Would stay here again if we return to Tanah Rata and have no hesitation in recommending it.

First of all: the staff is super friendly! The hostel had a convenient location, as it's off the main road but still close to the bus station. The beds are comfi. Showers are ok: sometimes the water was cold. There are enough places to hang out. Book in advance to make sure you have a bed, as it's quite a...

We stayed here for two nights. The room was fine, but the bathroom has definitely seen better days. Especially the shower wasn't the best we've seen so far. The staff was super friendly and helpful though. The common areas are pretty nice but the silent hours are taken very serious around here (and we were simply chatting to each other...

Considering this is pretty much the cheapest place in town I was very satisfied. I had a private room with a shared bathroom and it was perfect for a couple of days and nights exploring the highlands. The staff helped sort out tours. There is lots of communal space and the cafe was nice for breakfast. It is a 3...

Rooms are good although the bathrooms are little bit old and not logical engineered. The location is good and the breakfast is outstanding (if you like cheese, go for the scrambled eggs with a massive layer of cheese). The staff is helpful regarding the different forrest tracks. Overall I would recommend this place, a nice and chill atmosphere we you...
