I'll start by saying you can't currently find this on hostelworld or booking.com! We were lucky to stay here with thanks to the bus driver from Penang, as we started our journey he asked if we had accommodation which we didn't and said he'd call this place as it was the weekend and the good places (including this one) fill...

The best guesthouse I've ever been to. Nice, clean rooms, very friendly and helpful staff, very good breakfast. You can ask them all the things you want, you get superfriendly help. Thank you very much :)

My friend and I stayed here for three nights. We stayed in the dorm. It was clean and the mattresses were really nice. The staff were really friendly and helpful and the public area was a great place to meet people! There's a tea kitchen with free tea and coffee and games available as well. The tours offered were at... More

The staff was very hospitable and the room is decent for the price :D Also, it's just a two minutes walk away from the small town. Had decent lunch at Curry House. Not over priced like the one next door.

Hostel is very clean. Staff very nice and helpful. They all speak good English. Always smiling. Only problem it's very difficult to find the address. Very badly sign posted. People go to church. Church people are not pleased . they told me they are fed up guiding tourists to right address.

Reaffirming previous reviews. Great location, amazing staff (Valerie!), good rooms. Not sure about the ppl saying it's too expensive -- I booked a double room for $~20, which was roughly the price for similar accommodations. Valerie went above and beyond in making me feel welcome as a solo female traveler, even warning me away from some hiking trails in the... More

Based on the good reviews to choose this accommodation, it matched with my expectation. Pros 1.Location Close to everything, within 10 mins walk to the bus terminal (which you can take the bus from there back to Kuala Lumper). And it is located in the centre of the town where there are lots of restaurants. And there are small shops... More

I don't know why people love this place just sooo much. It is a nice hostel with VERY friendly staff, but that's about it. And it's not exactly cheap for Malaysia either. First things first: Staff are extremely helpful, the restaurant is nice for breakfast before the trekk (although it doesn't have too many choices) and they do great tours.... More

Not clear why this place is ranked so high: it has absolutely nothing special and rooms are in line with any other room in a Malaysia guest house which means very basic rooms, crappy bathroom and small beds. Staff is just ok where in many other parts of Malaysia you can meet much nicer people

My time in Cameron Highland was amazing, and Father's Guesthouse surely helped making it so. The staff is among the best I've met and the rooms were both clean and very comfortable. I stayed in the dorm and the madrass was among the best I've laid my tired body upon. There are great common areas as well, I found "my... More
