Backpacker vibe

What we say: 3 stars

This has the most backpackerish vibe of all the places in Kuala Tahan, but that's only because of the front terrace area where people can sit around, strum guitars and read through all the ranting signs on display. Rippi makes a big deal of claiming No Bullshit No Middleman on their tour pricing but you'll pay no different here than elsewhere. Accommodation is in the form of four- and six-bed dorms and, as with Liana, they're pretty back-to-basic affairs. Still, this is the equal cheapest in town and has a bit of a vibe to it which will appeal to some, but not others.
