Hostel Review - Cameron Highlands
Trying to prove that he is better at admin, Callum came across BB Inn Hotel on booking.com with a room for 5 people which was ideal. Only staying in hostels throughout my Southeast Asia journey, it was nice to finally stay in a room with people I actually knew.
The hotel was located just off the main street in Tanah Rata, which worked our perfectly when walking to restaurants or to catch a taxi. It was great for the fact that we didn't have to pay much to get to the main area, and was convenient for getting on the bus to & from Cameron Highlands.
Our room consisted of a queen bed, double bed, and a single bed. Liz and I were in the queen bed, Callum and Jake in the double, and Pringle in the single bed above the boys. We had our own bathroom and shower which was definitely a luxury, but the overall room wasn't anything extraordinary. There wasn't any wifi in our room, rather we had to sit down next to reception in order to get internet, which was a bit annoying but it did stop us from being on our phones the whole time.
Since we were staying technically in a hotel, there wasn't the hostel atmosphere. Basically, we played the card game "Shit Head" in the room together (Funny enough, I actually won most of the games having only learned the British rules). The reception was extremely nice and answered all of our questions, as well they let us store our bags behind reception.
Final Rating - 3 Stars
The facilities were basic, and not having wifi in the room definitely wasn't ideal. The atmosphere wasn't really existent but at the same time the room was decent and we had fun in the room altogether. The reception was extremely nice and helpful with answering our questions and letting us store our bags with them.
Total Cost = 30 RM
