“Excellent budget option”
Reviewed May 15, 2014 via mobile

Really enjoyed my stay at TJ's Lodge. Nice, airy and bright rooms that were impeccably clean. Walls were thin and you do get some noise from the bar below (while we were there the music played past midnight).

The Lodge has a nice common area with TV and cooking facilities. They also have a book exchange / sell thing. Books on sale for about RM3.

The shared bathroom was clean and the water in the showers got nice and hot.

Staff okay, nothing to write home about.

No lift.

A bit rundown in some parts - our door was jammed and our window wouldn't shut properly.

Some tips :)

- TJ offer a laundry service but just take it yourself a few doors down - is cheaper that way
- do jungle trail one, it's awesome!
- make friends with a taxi driver and get their number. Helpful for when you need to get picked up at the end of the day as there aren't many taxis around the area
- pack a jumper! We came from KL and were not expecting it to be so cold
- if getting the bus to Penang don't book with Unititi - they drop you off at some random place far from Georgetown
- TJ's was a good place to stay but don't be afraid to just turn up and find a hotel (especially in low season) - plenty of hotels around for RM50 and they seemed to offer much the same (we paid RM60 and that's with share bathroom)

the 4 of us staying for 2 nights at double bed room. And pretty much ok with everythings and just a bit of noises over the weekend because of the bar downstair which we dont really mind much. And it located at tanah rata which was not a problem as we drove from sgp - cameron. And they have a tour package just below at the reception and Mike, our tour guide is good and explain most of the things about cameron from tea plantation, mossy forest to the incest farm too.

It was a really nice and clean hostel.
They also have jeeps and we could hire one, that way we could see the most of the Cameron Highlands, I think, it was a really good full day program, and it worth it.
The team was very helpful, the also ordered us bus tickets to KL.

I stayed for two nights in a private room. The room was clean and the staff helpful. I did not see staff between 21h and 9h. Wifi was almost non-existent. There is a bar on the ground floor, for me this was no problem as I was tired from day activities and slept like a baby, but I imagine that for sleepers the bass sounds could be a problem. I believe the bar closes around midnight.
Overall a very pleasant stay!

We stayed three nights in a twin room on the first floor and despite previous reviews we did not find that the noise from the bar downstairs disturbed our sleep but I guess it might if you area light sleeper. We took a half-day tour with TJ too and their guide was fantastically informative and went that little bit further by adapting the itinerary to suit our group. The showers are hot (we never had to wait for these shared facilities) and the rooms are clean and bright. The walls are thin and the wifi was occasionally a bit dodgy but overall this was a great value place to stay.

Our room was basic and clean which is what we were looking for. There was plenty of space and we had our own bathroom. There is a nice communal area where you can watch movies, access to a computer and tea/coffee provided. Nice place. No complaints.

I was booking this hotel on the last minutes because all the hotel was full and quiet expensive during weekend. The location if this hotel is like 2 side knifes, in the first side it was really good location which is in the middle of tanah rata town and it is quiet near with the morning market beside the hotel. But, the location also very bad because it was very noisy especially from the market beside. I was worried i cannot really sleep because of the bar downstair based on other review but the bar itself not really make noisy sound but the traffic outside make more noisy sound.

I was booked double room with shared bathroom but i was given a family room for 3 people so i got 1 extrabed to put my stuff :) The bed itself is springbed and no bed bugs detected after i checked so no problem with the bed. Overall, the hotel also quiet clean and they provide free coffee and tea.

The bad things here is the internet. It was slow and hard to connect. I was try to restart the router few times due to the connection is always lost during I browse the internet.

Room Tip: As higher room. At least it will be less noise from the bar.
