We booked here primarily because of the alternative trekking options outside of the busy Bukit Lawang area which is predominantly semi wild primates (and lots of humans!). This area is great for a virtually guaranteed close up Orang Utan encounter but quite touristy. That said it would be great for the less adventurous or those with kids as it is... More

We didn't stay at this guest house, but Green Hill arranged a private 1-day trek in Bukit Lawang and river rafting for us. The experience was one of a kind. The result was 5 orangutans, 7 Thomas monkeys, a peakock, and 2 lizards, and lots of great memories. Although the trek is not cheap in Bukit Lawang, don't refuse it.

My first time in Sumatra and Green Hill helped make it a great introduction to the rainforest. I stayed for 6 days as a stop off back to the UK from Australia. It is about 4 hours from the airport, but 6 days was just about the right amount of time to acclimatise, chill out in the garden of Eden... More

Had a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing 4 days at Green Hill. Was picked up at Medan Airport by friendly shuttle driver. Whilst the transfer to BK took 6hr (if you think traffic is bad, head to Medan) and I did not arrive till 10pm, the guys at the guest house were still up and even rustled up an omelette for... More

I went to Bukit Lawang for 2 nights. Green hill were great - they organised everything from airport pick up in Medan, to the room, and a trekking tour to see the orangutans. The rooms are basic by western standards - you have a bed with a mosquito net (didnt need air con), a cold shower from a bamboo pipe,... More

I stayed at a couple of places in Bukit Lawang and this is the best place to stay in town. WE SAW ORANGUTANS from the balcony whilst enjoying a breakfast curry and beer! Andrea, the owner has a MSc in Primate Conservation and is a wealth of knowledge. This property is in the heart of town, about 15-20 minute walk... More

I had a great time in Bukit Lawing. I decided to stay at green hill and upon arrival i was greeted by a nice cold drink and friendly people. The food was amazing and the atmosphere was great and very relaxed. I wanted to book a longer trek, as there were no other people around wanting to do the same,... More

We initially arrived at Green Hill as a resting place before our trek, but loved it so much we stayed a week. The staff here are so helpful, very warm and friendly and always greeted us by name. We joined in on their relaxing, fun singsongs in the evenings as they played guitar and enjoyed playing cards with them too.... More
