Gorgeous setting and cheap food set in the heart of the rainforest! Lovely friendly staff. A restaurant you must eat at when in bukit lawang 💗💗💗 nasi goreng with fried chicken and a fresh fruit juice is a must.

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of May. Frans and rest of The staff were very friendly and everywhere had a very laid back feel. It was amazing to be able to wake up and look at the jungle from your bed. The river and wildlife is quite noisy so bring ear plugs if you are a... More

Stayed here with a friend whilst backpacking. We chose the cheapest room and although it was basic the room was big with everything we needed for a jungle base. We chose a room without a fan and were a bit worried about getting hot at night but there was a nice breeze through the windows at night so we didn't... More

Nice to lie in the hammock relaxing. It is very basic, unfortunately the room we had over the kitchen smelt of the... More
