This is a basic hostel, no airco but fan and good mosquito net. Rooms are painted in nice colours and are very clean. Matras and blankets are also good and I specially liked the pillow. I was searching a little bit before choosing this hostel and I can say this was the only one I had a good feeling since... More

Well, this is by far, the worst stay we have been so far in our backpack trip for the last 10 months (I waited a bit before giving the review). So we went in the beginning of the rainy season (the whole place got helicopter-evacuated one week after). So it was humid, not that warm and rainy. The condition don't... More

Tahan Guesthouse This was certainly one of the best guesthouses we stayed in on our Journey through Asia (6 Months now, so we already stayed in a lot of different hotels). The rooms are clean and tidy, the beds are comfortable and the bedsheets washed and clean, mosquito net provided, you can lock the room properly (not the cheap round... More

Rm 50 for a clean double with clean private bathroom, mosquito net, soap provided. Friendly owner. Basic at a basic price, would stay again at this colourful guest house. The only negative was the mosque next door had prayers over the PA at 6am, but it only lasts a few minutes.

We wasn't expecting much out of the small town but this little colourful guesthouse was ideal. Mosquito net, handy desk and chairs in room, in a quite area with just the noise of the bugs at night and birds singing in the morning. The owner is lovely and very smiley :)

In our travels in Malaysia, this was a step above most other guest houses. Yes it's basic (no a/c, squat toilet) but it's spotless and well-cared-for. There are murals painted on the walls, mosquito nets above the beds so you can sleep with the windows open, and the family that runs the place is friendly and helpful. We left our... More

Have the owners changed? We were looked after by a man, and having looked at the other reviews I have noticed a women is mentioned, the room was very basic and yes we had the hole in the floor toilet and the awful smell. We stayed in March 2014, on the ground floor round the back of the building, and... More
