1. We stayed at the basic chalet with adjoining toilet with a large queen bed and a double Decker.Costs RM5o per day. The chalet was dry, clean but very basic. The toilet may not be palatable to Westerners and city dwellers but it does flush properly and with cold shower. Blankets and towels provided. Never mind there is no AC as its very cold at night due to the jungle climate.
2.Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. We arrived at K.Tahan at 6am and the Mat Leon owner picked us up without complain. In the morning the owner or his family members also provide free boat ride to the jetty until 845am, later than that depends if the 4WD is available, but you can still walk to the jetty at 10-15 minutes. The walk will go through an orchard and a road with other chalets and village houses. The villagers are very helpful to point out directions. We notcied many Westerners stay at these remote chalets and seem to enjoy the walk.
3.As for other services, the canteen serves decent food and you can order hot local food and drinks at reasonable price. To sum up its a very laid back place and very basic but its nearer to the jungle which IMO is better than the sleazy K.Tahan Town and touristry resorts. We spent our time up the river and hiking most of the day and we had no problems resting our tired bodies at MatLeon.
4.In conclusiom, its a basic place to sleep and stay at a budget. I enjoyed the remote location.
P.S: Bring a torch light or two as at night its pitch black if you plan to walk between the jetty and MatLeon.
