We really enjoyed our stay at Nora's guesthouse. Apart from the owner being quite pushy and persistent in selling you all kinds of arrangements, the staff was very helpful and friendly. Our evenings were Filled by singing songs accompanied by the guitarskills of the staff. Only the bathroom/toilet/shower was smelly and our mosquito-net had more than a few holes in it. The 2 day jungle treck was superb with Putra as our guide. We'd definetily stay here again.


Don't stay here. I don't know why people keep coming here. Nora isn't alive anymore and her a-hole son has taken over. They NON-STOP harass you about doing tours with them. They'll wake you up in the morning to ask you about doing a tour and they won't leave your room until you tell them tell them something. Their tours are insanely overpriced compared to shops that are 10 feet away. The staff could not care less about your stay. Just go somewhere else, there are 20 better places within 1 min
