“We were not disappointed.”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

We had the pleasure of staying at Fathers Guest for 3 nights in January. We found the hostel to be very clean, we'll run with helpful staff, and just off the main drag. It was at most a 5 minute walk from where we were dropped off by bus, and the first person we spoke to pointed us in the right direction.
Our room was a double bed, with fan and a shared bathroom and we found it great. The bed was comfortable and the shower, although not hot, was warm enough to feel good after our hikes. We did find the Hostel cool, especially when you leave your shoes at the door and it has tile floors. Bring thick socks or slippers to keep your feet toasty.
The free instant coffee and tea is always appreciated.

Room Tip: We were in room C3. It was on the third floor, facing the back of the building. The steps are quite...

Booked this place after reading reviews on TripAdvisor. And boy was I glad. Stayed in a double room with an attached bath. Valerie, the hostess was really helpful, whether it be booking trips, figuring out hiking trails or giving food tips. Its a little off the main road but considering how small Tanah Rata is that is not an issue at all. Most of the hiking trails begin around this place.

Stayed at fathers guest house in Tanah Rata for 3 nights. Valerie in the reception was lovely and very helpful with everything from bus tickets to hiking trails to restaurants. Stayed in a single room with attached bathroom which was really nice. Didn't see the dorm so can't comment on that. Comfy common areas, very quiet place. The guest house is especially nice because it is a short walk from the main road so less noisy and fewer people.

Father's Guest House is in a great location right off of the main road. Bear in mind that Tanah Rata is very small. Rooms are clean and spacious. You can book various day trips at the front desk. Service is great.

The place was a lil bit hard to find, but once we were there, it made up for the wee bit trouble. Love the surroundings. Our room was with attached bathroom and there was a small balcony which was cute. Very clean, awesome surrounding and very nice hostess. Wifi was also very strong. I would definitely return to Father's Guesthouse.

I got here on the basis of a traveller's advice and spent 3 nights here. The guesthouse is best located, 2 minutes walk from the village and very easy to find. The owner is really fantastic and will help whenever he can. The tours offered are really good and the guides will take you to some places you won't see with other tours.
Rooms are spacey, lot of common meeting places in and outside of the building, very clean. Excellent wifi!
