We arrived at the Guesthouse and asked the owner if the room/area would be ok with all the surrounding flooding happening and he assured us it would be fine. The cleaner came to us and said we should get alternate accommodation as the rooms floods every year and this would not be different. And at 1am the rooms had to... More

We stayed in the old part of the hostel, which was not too clean (we were charged 60RM instead of 80; this should have warned us...). The sink was leaking and we did not have a warm shower (room 2). The owner tried to make us believe that he wasn't aware of these problems. However he did not fix it... More

We headed straight to Yellow Guesthouse but checked out a room at the nearby chalets on the way. While costing more (100MYR for 3 people rather than 80) Yellow was far and away the best option. Very clean room with fridge and tea/coffee facilities and spotless bathroom. Beds were comfortable. Only negative is the paint on the walls comes off... More

Super nice guest house with decent rooms and very sweet owner. The yellow guesthouse has rooms in various price classes. We stayed in the cheapest option RM40 with fan and ac and shared bathroom. The owner knows just everything about where to go when and how and is very helpful and sweet. There is coffee, tea and water for the... More

We send an email to make a reservaties but did not get an answer. When we arrived in the village we went to the guest house and were able to get a room. The rooms are quite big and equiped with airco (which is very nice to have in summer), private bathroom and balcony. The friendly man running the guest... More

Only stayed for one night so extremely hard to review a place over the duration of 24 hours, however a few descriptions of what is offered might prove vital to other travelers, this includes: Hot showers, free coffee and tea, free wi-fi next to the central house, and overall a cheap accomendation! The owner was incredible helpful in all the... More

There is nothing fancy about this place but the owner is a friendly man and the rooms are functional if basic. It comprises a modern three storey block with the owner's house just across the road where you can access water and tea, and use the wifi. The location is fine, in the village with just a short walk to... More

Although we had to sleep on the floor on a mattress it was very clean! It's ideal for backpackers! There was a hot shower and air con. The owner of the guesthouse was extremely friendly and welcoming! After originally planning to stay 3 nights we extended it. Although it is not signposted that well and was hard to find, once...

We stayed there for 3 nights after we moved from the Holiday View Inn hotel, which I don't recommend to anyone (though the staff were super nice). Cheap budget hotel and the room are very spacious. Other than that I don't recommend Taman negara to anyone. Most boring activities at all.
