Liked: Easy to find, close to everything. Showers very hot.

Disliked: Room was cold because it was right next door to an outside door which was always open. Noisy as well because windows looked over the garden area and restaurant area.

Liked: The location is great, just off the main road where the eateries are. 5 min walk from bus terminal. The manager was super helpful even late in the night.

Disliked: We were there in December, rainy season, and everything felt damp (fair enough), including the bedding (not so nice).

12 January 2014 Daniel would recommend this property

Liked: The atmosphere was lovely with a beautiful melting pot of guests and a courteous staff. The facilities were what you can expect for the price and were on par with typical southeast Asian hostels. Only a block from the main street, Twin Pines served as a perfect home base for our adventures in the Cameron Highlands. A quaint canopied social and dining area was a great shelter from the rains and a nice spot to chat with other travelers. The breakfast fare was great value for our money too!

Disliked: The building needed some repair. Rainwater was seeping through a ceiling tile and down to our electrical outlet and light switch, which caused me some small concern, but repairs to some of the leaky spots were underway even as we stayed there.

Liked: The girl who works at reception is sooo friendly and chatty. The room was clean and they cleaner sprayed down the room with repellant to get rid of the mozzies. The garden is nice to sit around in. It is quite easy to find this location and it is also away from the main street so you can avoid the noise of the town.

Disliked: Breakfast is quite expensive, but nicely prepared.

Liked: There were plenty of showers and toilets for rooms without facilities. Not all the showers had hot water though and hot water is appreciated in this cool climate. The manageress was incredibly helpful.

Disliked: They have a beautiful garden but they are a bit picky about bringing in outside food and drink, despite having a very limited menu. A good policy for guest houses should be, "If we don't sell it, bring it in".

Liked: Price and location. Staff were very friendly also.

Disliked: The accom is very basic but otherwise ok. We found our room to be a bit noisy, the shower in our room had no hot water and the chef didn't know what French toast was (despite is being on the menu).
