The guest house offers private rooms as well as dorms with shared bathroom/shower. The privates have basic furniture, fan and no TV (no need for aircon in these altitudes). Breakfast was not included in our rates but you can get it for very reasonable prices. The staff is very helpful and provides you with lots of information about tours and... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in a double room here for 3 nights and absolutely loved it. The place looked very posh however fit within our backpackers budget. The rooms were very nicely done up and the bathroom was clean. There were plenty of brochures and a map of the trails available. The wifi however was very slow.

Fathers' was filled with adventurers and thrill-seekers and is one of the most popular guesthouses in the region. It was perfect for me because not only did it have a sense of community, but also provided great value for money.

Just 100 meters from town but placed in such a way that it is quiet and peaceful. Staff was friendly and helpful. Room and toilet was clean. Mattress was comfortable. Took room with "shared bathroom", which was just 2 rooms sharing one bathroom. Staff recommended half day tour (RM53) with Mossy Forest, Gunung Brinchang highest point and Boh Tea Plantation....

Stayed for 2 nights with friends (a group of 5 adults). The whole place was lovely. It is just slightly off the main road and is quiet at night and even during the day. The rooms and common areas are well kept, neat and clean. There are free board games and we had fun with pictionary. The owner and staff... More

I was travelling by myself and stayed here because it sounded like a great place to meet other travellers, which was true. I'd recommend joining one of Jason's guided treks around the valley - really informative, good route and finished up in a tea plantation. Also meant I got to meet some great people, who I ended up having a... More
