Arrived at Medan airport in he early morning where the driver Mega Inn was already waiting, really funny guy and spoke good English. After about 3 and a half hours from Medan, on some of the bumpiest roads ever!, we arrived at tangkahan. Mega inn was exactly as we expected, clean, comfortable but basic. You don't need anything else in... More

We had an awesome time at Mega Inn in Tangkahan. At first we had the most beautiful cottages, right at the river. We were woken up by monkeys every morning, a great feeling. The houses are primitive, but what else do you expect when visiting the Indonesian jungle. The restaurant is great as well. The boys serving us where very... More

I stayed here with a tour company called G Adventures. The hotel was decent... Clean, but only bare bones necessities. There is only one electrical outlet in each room with very weak electricity so it is wise to pack a portable battery or solar charger to charge your appliances. The shower is only cold water but since I stayed there... More

Make no mistake the rooms here are basic but the location is stunning. Even the approach to Mega Inn is impressive as you have to cross the river by a rope suspension bridge. We booked 2 riverside rooms and loved the outdoor terrace with hammocks overlooking the River Batang. I had no problems with the water bucket and scoop provided... More

We only had lunch here. Everyrhing looked really clean nice and comfy. It looks like a nice place to stay with hammocks etc and really close to the river. But My boyfriend and me ordered the chicken and we got really really sick...so just be careful with eating chicken here.

Mr Mega welcomed us when we arrived from Medan with the car he arranged for. This was a sign of the unique hospitality we experienced during our stay. We stayed in room 16 & 17 - just at the front of the river. From our balcony we followed the local people bathing, washing, playing. The clear waters running past was... More

When some friends and I looking for information about Tangkahan, they said it's like Bukit Lawang but in 10 years ago. So we decided to visit this place and stay in Mega Inn. The owner and all the staffs were very friendly and informative. The rooms are basic and little bit small but comfortable enough. Each room we used have... More

Tangkahan is truly a jungle paradise and Mega Inn was a great way to experience it. I emailed Mega to coordinate my visit, and he was very helpful in organizing my itinerary for me. His English is a bit limited, but any kinks we just worked out on arrival. Tubing, swimming at a waterfall, hiking and especially the elephants were... More

I don't really need to write a review as the others are all pretty accurate. This place is very cheap and very good value for money. It's a no frills jungle paradise!! Yes there's no wifi no flushing toilet and no hot water + frequent powercuts! But who comes to the jungle to watch tv and have a good soak!... More

We stayed here for two nights. We didn't have any phone signals, nor do they have any wifi. So it really feels like going back in time. We met some of the nicest staff here during our stay in Sumatra! The food they serve is very tasty en cheap. Bungalow's are small, bed's are good. No hot water and no... More
