Professionally run hostel. Staff are always on hand to organise tours for guests. While I was there, everyone seemed to just sit around watching movies so there wasn't a very sociable atmosphere. Everything else was great though! More

Amazing location. Right in the middle of the jungle, really near to orangutan sanctuary. Helpful staff - organized river cruise for us and free shuttle to sepilok. Would stay here again. More

A bit out of the way but they provide a free shuttle and it is an awesome setting, lots of hammocks to laze about it when you're not seeing the orangutans and sun bears. Good food too that isnt' too expensive, definitely recommend this place. More

Front desk said I could not get a bus to semporna at the junction but bus company said I could. Wasted 60 ringgit taking a taxi there just to drive right by the junction. Thanks staff!! More

Further out of the way than others but worth the walk. Still only about 10mins from the Orangutan centre. The dorm room was basic but cheap, the shower was warm, if a little weak. wifi was only available in the restaurant and I spent most of my time there. The food was exquisite tho More

Wish they had told me pool was closed but great place to visit sepilok. Make sure you reconfirm your taxi for the next day though, don't think they booked mine at 6am as asked and manager ended up zooming me to the airport! More

The best part about the hostel - because it empty no one was on the wifi so I could video call home but maybe because of low season it definitely wasn't the place to meet people Also when I arrived there was no water so I was not able to have a shower after spending 3 days in the jungle More

The hostel was extremely dirty. The kitchen area used for the cafe (which was closed) was disgusting. Dirty dishes, overflowing rubbish, dirty sides. It looked like no one had bothered to clean in days. There were breakfast plates still hanging around on tables in the cafe. The bathroom More
