“A okay place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2013

+ 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 :)

I booked a double room with en suite and that was ok for the price but it could do with a good spring clean. It is close to the town centre and didn't take long to walk too. The staff could have been friendlier and more welcoming and I would also suggest to them to make the tea and coffee free, the bar was a bit of a waste of time as it was empty most nights and the bar manager is rather rude.

Now the reason for the low rating is because of the dogs they just bark all night long and are close to the room I was in and I got woken up at 3 am at least two mornings in a row!

Oh I also did the adventure 1 tour and found that very good value!

I booked a single room for 28RM. It was very basic, small and old. But the bed sheets were clean. The showers were a little bro bought a map from reception for 4RM and a tour to Mossy Forest for 35RM, which was great, very friendly guides.
The Wi-fi near reception works good and the atmosphere is nice, a lot of young people.
