We booked to stay here for 2 nights in a private lodge for 2. The room was big and everything you would expect from being in the middle of the rainforest. We had already pre-booked our trips we wanted to do through emailing the park HQ but you can book these on arrival. On arrival we paid for all of our trips and we given a park map. The staff are really friendly and recommend trips to do. Thé café at park HQ is great. They have English and traditional food. The price is great and the food is delicious. The satay chicken is the best we had in Borneo! As soon as you enter the park, you have a great feeling as you walk across a little suspended bridge straight away. The park has security so when you want to go and do any of the trails you sign in and out. They have recommend walks you can do. The look out tower is good. The signs around the park are really good and informative. We booked on a couple of trips which were the skywalk, night walk and deer and Lang cave trip. We were supposed to do the garden of Eden trip but unfortunately we couldn’t do it. The skywalk is amazing and I would definitely recommend it. We managed to see some monkeys in the trees and because they keep the numbers to a small group and you can only have a couple of people on each bridge it feels like it is just you and your family with you. The night walk was amazing, going into the rainforest in the pitch black is incredible. The guides are amazing and know where lots of the animals hide. We didn’t see any big animals but saw snakes, spiders, scorpions. The deer and Lang cave was my favourite trip! The guides are incredible and we learnt lots of new information! The cave is out of this world. We were so lucky and managed to see the bat exodus where around 2 million bats fly out the cave. There is nothing that can describe the experience and we felt so lucky to be able to see it.

We had already booked our accommodation and tours before arriving via email and found this part of the process great. However, when we arrived at the park they didn’t have all of this recorded and they were having to look through all the paper booking folders to find everything we booked. We left after paying thinking everything was done. We just happened to go back to the reception to ask about a walk later and they enquired where our wrist bands were for the park we had no idea what they were talking about as we had not been given them. They then presented us with paper work that had all of our booking details printed out including the tours. The hostel room had around 14 beds with 2 men’s shower/toilets and 2 women’s at the back of the building. There is no key for the hostel door and no plug sockets next to beds. There were a small number of plug sockets in the middle of the room. Lockers are in the room but you need your own padlock. The first 2 nights were great there were only 3 of us in the room. However, this all changed on the last night when a large tour group came and took all of the other beds. They were extremely loud before 6am in the morning for over an hour and showed no respect for others trying to sleep. Their guide then also came into the room shouting to round them all up for their tour. I think in these situations the park should rent the whole hostel room to the group or make it clear that you follow the unwritten hostel rule of not making excessive noise before 7am! The breakfast included within the room rate was really good as was the food at the park HQ in general. Everything shut at 8:45 in the park. If you can find accommodation just over the bridge from the park this is as good as staying in the park. We booked the hostel to avoid having to get lifts all the time.

I travelled here with a friend. We stayed in the rainforest lodge as the dorm was full. The room was ensuite and was outstanding. To find this in the middle of a jungle was simply amazing. The facilities for where you are are excellent. Food very good. Quality of guiding excellent, visitor centre very informative. The internet isn’t great and I definitely think this is not because of the location as locals were streaming films and games etc. This should be looked into as travellers need to be able to book flights etc which we did have an issue with. Food and drink is a bit more expensive than the average on Malaysia, but hey you’re in the jungle! Very much recommended and I WILL be back!!!

We stayed in 2 different types of accommodation because we were there 3 nights and there wasn't accommodation available in the same room for 3 nights. First was the more expensive deluxe garden bungalow. It was big but smelt very musty, with very Creaky floors! It had a lovely outdoor area to sit at and was in a quiet area. The second one was the rainforest lodge, cheaper and I liked it better. There was a chair to sit on inside, as well as the balcony outside. It was smaller but smelt better. The downside was the air con seemed to be on a timer so it went off at night when sleeping. Each room had a jug for tea and coffee but no fridge, but powdered milk was supplied. They have limited facilities (a generator is used some of the time) so that's part of the reality of its remoteness.

It was lovely accomodation, clean and comfy. It was exactly what we wanted for a two nights in mulu. It was very quiet and very convenient when organising tours with the park. Only thing I would say is don’t book on booking.com as they charge than going through the national park.
