The guesthouse has a few different communal areas to hang out. Its a short walk from town so its really quiet. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our doubleroom (nr. 12) was clean - the hot water didnt really work and the matress definetly has to be changed. You get free tea and coffee all day long and the... More

Clean, very friendly and helpful staff, and the common areas are great for meeting new people. It's also off the main road so it's quiet. Had a fantastic time there. The only downside is there is only 1 toilet/shower so it can get pretty busy at times.

Dont have great expectations and you will be okay with this place. Has the basic amenities. We were initially surprised as the rooms did not have air conditioner or fan. But I need to accept that we did not feel the need for either of them at night. It was pretty cool. Rooms were okay and clean. You get free... More

We stayed here two nights. Place is just outside of the town centre (walking distance). Rooms were clean well kept. Very basic set up, but overall facilities were in good order. Get free tea and coffee. They partner with a local tour company (eco tours) which provide knowledgable guides. They also help book any buses or additional transportation. Staff is... More

We have had a bad experience with the Eight Mentigi Guesthouse. The "Manager" was a very uncomfortable man who simply checked us out two hours earlier and pretended that he told us so. An hour before checkout then I couldn't find any toilet paper anymore and the cleaning staff was already in the room. Further free coffee and tea isn't... More

We had wanted to stay in Father's Guesthouse which was right next door but stayed here as Father's Guesthouse was fully booked. There was a guy at the bus station we arrived into that worked for Eight Mentigi, and he took us to the area for free knowing we were looking to stay in the hostel next door. However when... More

Drove up to Cameron Highlands and the landmark (Maybank) was easy enough to find in Tanah Rata, but still we got lost when looking for the guest house. Suggest to install a signboard. To be fair, there were new road constructions in the area (as of Dec 2013) so that's why its a little bit confusing. Had a lovely time... More
