Great that they offer cheap-end accommodation but strangely they don't advertise their twin and double rooms. An upgrade is RM5. A lovely place very close to the attractions. Great onsite food. The staff are charming and willing.


Perfect location for Sepilok. Walking distance to see Orangutans. Food is really good here. Staff are friendly and helpful. Lovely chilled out restaurant. Only complaint would be is that the drink choices are limited and wifi is really weak. But then you are in the jungle so the wifi is to be expected. Definitely recommend.


Staff was mainly busy surving the Internet, so you have to manage Almosen everything on your own. When we ordernd food, nearly nothing was available, because they hadn't anything to cook with. Great breakfast! Unbelievable good jam!


The team here are what made this stay so good - they were so friendly and helpful. It's 20 minutes walk from the Orang-utans and I booked a trip to Turtle Island from here. The food is also great, all cooked to order and at reasonable prices.


Nice quiet BB in the jungle. Walking distance to SORC and RDC. Not much else to do in sepilok then that thogh. Various trips could be arranged from the reception.
