Stayed here for two nights while we looked around the Cameron Highlands. Comfortable room (we were in the dorms) and friendly staff who were very helpful with tours/walks etc. Good location, 2min walk to the main strip in Tanah Rata, nice that's it's not on the main road. Their dining area was in a nice garden setting and very reasonably...

We had a comfortable stay for couple of nights. Recommended! The front desk lady was helpful in giving us tips about the surrounding area of Tanah Rata. We found her advice particularly useful when making a visit to the tea plantations. The rooms are very basic. Cleanliness was acceptable for this price and overall standard. It seems that the upkeep...

This hostel is perfect for this location! Very relaxed atmosphere and sore ally easy to make friends. I fully recommend taking the 5/6 hour trekking tour offered by the hostel. The guide, Jason, is incredibly knowledgeable and makes the whole trek very interesting!

Just WOW! Our stay at Father's Guest House was amazing. It is a lovely location with a very short walk to the main centre of Tanah Rata and also a short walk to the bus station - super handy, don't need to take a taxi anywhere. Wifi in rooms is very poor most of the time but the staff are...

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'...
