Kang Travellers Lodge (Daniel's Lodge)
Ranked #11 of 13 Hotels in Tanah Rata
Reviewed October 4, 2013

Very good locality, though the rooms wasn't all that great it is fair enough for spending couple of days.. lot of restaurants around, jungle bar was really cool.. You can meet lot of people in the evening with just a beer in hand .. really cool place to spend your evenings... They arranged for a day trip to strawberry farm, short trek, etc.. Even if you are not able to get your bookings done, you can very well walk few steps and reach the main street.. 100s of tour agents will be waiting to help you..

Location:
In a side street up the hill. In the evening they open a little bar in the next house, but you are not disturbed. In the morning exits a local breakfast restaurant down the hill.
Tanah Rata is small - location is not so important.

Room:
Very large Room under the roof. It is full with beds (no bulk). If it is cold you can ask for an extra blanket. Under the beds/between beds exists space to put your luggage.
No door, thin walls => If you are paranoid then it might be the wrong place.

Common Area:
Outside under a roof. Many Tables, chairs, sofa. Many Outlets.
Wifi exits, but might be slow if many guests.

Bathroom:
Some Western; Some Asian Toilets. Very hot shower in Toilet.

Staff:
Uncomplicated, Nice and friendly.

+ clean bed sheets
+ good common spaces
+ double up on blankets because it was colder than we had expected

- No toiletpaper the second morning - he gave me and my friends the last
- Even though we had booked and payed in advanced and was tolled that it was possible to arrive until 1 then there was no one in the reception(or the bar) at 23.30. After 1 hour of seeking we found the owner (almost sleep walking) on her way to the toilet.

The rooms are super basic and not too big. The downside is that the walls are thin and the windows have slats on them so when they close, they don't really seal in (ie you can still easily hear noise outside). They do have a fan to provide white noise to combat anything outside. The common area is quite nice though, with lots of tables and sofas and people hanging out. It's also off the main drag so you don't really hear traffic. The staff here is very nice and helpful.

+ super friendly and helpful staff
+ quiet location; close to everything as Tanah Rata is a very small town; 3-5 minutes away from the bus station
+ their offer many different tours (did not book them though)

+/- rooms seem to be old, but ok for the price

- no place in the room to put your stuff

Great possibilities to eat near the hotel! Early breakfast you can get at the indian restaurant behind the bus station.

We had a nightmare with finding a room in Tannah Rata as it was high season. Kang lodge messed up my email booking BUT eventually they did find us a room and having looked at ALL the other places in TR in the meantime this was for sure the best option for the price.

High season prices are VERY overpriced for what you get in TR town so try and visit outside of the busy times if you can and don't expect much from the rooms in TR hotels - all are very basic. At least Kang Lodge is set in a nice surrounding and the rooms are very well cleaned unlike most of the rest we looked at.

Also they have great wifi and a cool little bar.

Room Tip: Try and get a room on the outer rows as these are much quieter and have a window.

We stayed in the dorm room, its pretty simple but clean. If you pay more there are lockers available, its a great location and a brilliant place to meet other travellers. The kang buses are reasonably priced and easy to sort out :)
