This place is way past it's prime, and definitely not worth visiting...even if you are on a budget. The rooms are old, the linen is dirty, the "hot" water is almost non-existent (OK, if you are in a hot tropical town, but not when it's 16 degrees and raining outside). The rooms are connected to the "living area/kitchen", which means...

I loved my stay at Orchid Haven for so many reasons! It's very cosy, clean and comfortable. It has the nicest dorms I've seen in SE Asia - each with own bathroom and a cute little balcony; mirror, wooden shelves and even fresh flowers create a very homy atmosphere :) Each bed has own light and a power socket.

This was my third trip to CH, trying a new place each time. This and CH Travellers Inn are very much of the same standard, both are good budget options. The dorms were good, bunk beds comfy enough, with proper coverings as it gets colder at night, a socket and reading light next to each bed really made a difference....

The hostel is one of the better ones in town. The staff are helpful and they offer a great guide to the restaurants in the town. The rooms are a good size and beds are comfortable - does get a bit cold at night so the extra thick blankets helps a million. They also have uno

Orchid Haven is a small & clean hostel with a chill and social atmosphere. Each dorm has its own little balcony and a good sized toilet/shower which was nice. We stayed three nights and enjoyed the ability to use kitchen facilities for breakfast. The staff were very friendly and helped us with recommendations, bookings and walking trail routes.

Customer care service was well - organized and helpful. The receptionist girl tried to manage to find me a bed when they even ran out of bed in dorm. I checked in late at 10p.m and they still helped me to book the tour for the forest ( btw tour was amazing). Breakfast, free tea and coffee... Well taking care...

If you are going to stay anywhere in the Cameron highlands stay here! Guests run the place and it is madness as soon as you arrive but it will feel like home for the first time in weeks. The owner is so friendly, kind and feeds you non-stop. We had a cooking class with him and ate the nicest food...
