We stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel looks fairly run down from the outside and doesn't get too much better looking when you get inside. The woman who checked us in was very friendly and lovely to deal with.

There is a musty smell in the corridors but the rooms don't smell as bad. The staff seem to leave the windows open to air out the rooms. Our room came with a TV but it didn't work. The wifi has been excellent the whole time. The shared bathrooms have squatter toilets. Shower had hot water. You have to give deposit for towels which aren't in great condition.

The building is located right in the centre of town so as soon as you leave the hotel you have a choice of restaurants. It is less than a 10 min walk to the bus station.

Kangs have a their own tour operator on site which I would recommend using if you're planning a trip around the highlands as we used another company and we were let down by the poor service but we seen the Kang tour throughout the day and it looked a lot more professional than our tour.

I would have given this accommodation a poor rating but we paid so cheaply for the room and it rings through that you pay for what you get!

We booked for their so called resort and even bank in advance payment as they requested but once we call again they say the resort was fully booked. after scold them for their careless and not professional attitude they apologize and offer to stay in hotel. due to the high peak season we had no choice but to stay here. rooms were horrible. totally different from the pictures they show in internet. bathroom heater not working. the staffs were friendly. price is cheap but the hotel in a very bad condition. regret to pay in advance if not sure wont even go here.

Room Tip: every room sucks

since i am senior writer i usually dont write nice reviews but this hotel is nice. dont believe any bad reviews which are written in trip advisor as they are all false. i am staying here right now and i also stayed here 3 years ago. the place is still nice and the standards have not gown down.
i stayed one night in a single room and i paid 35 ringgit. thats US$10 per night. bathroom was not attached. bathrooms were clean though.
the second night i switched to a double room with a bathroom. i am paying 50 Ringgit per night. room is spanking clean, toilet paper and 2 towels are supplied and a soap. bathroom is small but not too small. it has hot water. and was also very clean.
considering this is a popular tourist destination, you cant get any thing cheaper and cleaner than this.
there is no food in the hotel but tea and coffee is available. free wifi with a nice seating area on the front is a plus point.
MY ADVICE TO ALL BACKPACKERS: STAY HERE.

Room Tip: better make a booking as it is usually full

Wanted to stay at the lodge but it was full so we had to stay here. The building was old and dirty. squat toilets only. Rooms were so cold I found it hard to sleep. Also, my mattress was incredibly uncomfortable. The staff working there were really unfriendly except for the middle-aged man. room was cheap (35RM for two doubles beds) but we moved to a different hostel on the second night. Only good thing was the wifi.

We were taken to Kang Hotel after we had walked into Kang Lodge (seemingly a related business up the hill), which was full. The hotel location is bang in the middle of town centre. The manager was exceptionally pleasant to deal with. We paid for a double room with ensuite. Room was basic and there were some bits that were in need of maintenance - but seemed clean. Bed was missing the top sheet. Towels could be had for a deposit of 20. For a room rate of 50, the standard felt about right. There are probably nicer places, but for a bit more.
