        I had a really nice stay here, the rooms were clean and comfortable and had the option of air con and fans. The bathrooms were also incredibly clean! The layout of the place is lovely, so peaceful. Shop and restaurant within the complex so you never have to walk far! About a 20 min walk to orangutan sanctuary. The thing that made the stay the best was the staff. They were so welcoming and friendly. I actually got sick one day and ended up spending the day in bed, the staff were about to check some people into the room but saw I was sick and moved them to a different dorm and let me have the dorm to myself. Whilst this is just a little thing, at that moment in time I really appreciated it. That evening and the next day numerous staff continued to ask if I was feeling better. It was really nice. Thank you guys!

        I stayed 7 nights here and 1 night at their sister lodge Kinabatangan. The staff provided excellent support with information, transportation and tours. The staff also provided nice flexibility with an exchange of 1 night lodging between Sepilok and Kinabatangan. All of the staff were very friendly and provided great service. I'd like to mention a special thanks to the staff members Adie, Aliza, and Mei Chin.

        Enjoyed my short stay. You can walk to the Orang Utan centre from the hotel. Good room but a bit over priced for the quality. Restaurant only opens at 7 pm and so not able to get a good meal after the visit to Sepilok centre is a drawback.

        I stayed here for 1 night, and then again for 2 nights a few days later. The lodge is very clean and peaceful. The staff are wonderful and extremely helpful. There is WiFi, but I was unable to successfully connect on any of my devices. One downside is the shop, whenever I needed water it was closed which isn’t very good when there are no stores close by. I would stay here again, thoroughly enjoyed my stay!

        This hotel is rather new and the chalet is rather spacious. It is an ideal place for those who wish to visit the Orang Utan Sanctuary and Sun Bear Conservatio Centre. It took about 20 -30 mins to walk there. The hotel is quiet.

        Some places in Sepilok might be swankier, but this is a lovely place, very friendly, well maintained, still quite new, with a great outdoor restaurant (loved all the vegetarian options). Our room was very clean, had great AC, and a nice and novel outdoor wasroom surrounded by tropical plants and open to the sky in the back. Easy walking distance to all the local attractions.

        we were really impressed with the quality of the accomodation here. the rooms were modern and clean and even had Aircon, which we weren't expecting. it was a really peaceful location and we had a great night sleep the staff were always chatty and helpful. we liked it so much we went back after our river cruise! only criticisms are that the WiFi did not work in the common area either time we stayed. we don't mind no WiFi in the room but it was inconvenient to have none at all. thankfully the tour shop allowed us to use their WiFi. also while the food as pretty tasty, it sometimes took a while to arrive. however, I would thoroughly recommend staying here!

        Close to rainforest center and orangutan rehab center. I had the whole dorm room to myself one night and the other night shared with some Malay guides, who were really cool. Everything is really clean and really new. The bathrooms were next to the dorm room and were excellent. It was a very comfortable 2 nights. Best part was Papa Bear. He's so funny and friendly. He even gave me a ride to the orangutan center one day. Cons: only food option is buffet, which is expensive (25RM), breakfast ends too early at 9am, and the wifi is pretty much non-existent.

        Great location next to the rainforest discovery centre, and about 10/15 minute walk to the orangutan and sun bear sanctuary. Staff were very friendly and the room was clean and comfortable. I was in a 8 bed dorm but there was only 1 other girl there. Breakfast was nice, choice of eggs with sausage beans and tomato and some fruit and toast. I wanted to stay another night but they were fully booked the next night.

        This place is conveniently located 1km away from the Orang outan rehab centre. They just started proposing scooters rental and I highly recommend to rent one for a day which costs 50 MYR as opposed to relying on vans to bring you to places like the Labuk bay Probioscis monkey sanctuary for 20MYR per person each way! I don't especially recommend having lunch (it's a set menu so you can't choose) or dinner there coz it's not cheap and not great (breakfast was good though). Instead you can go to Lake view and have fab lunch or dinner for only a bit more ;-)

        I stayed here only for 01 night on my way to see the Orangutans. This is a perfect base for anyone visiting Sepilok. The conservation centre is just a kilometre away and can be reached by a 10 min walk. The bunks were clean and the staff were polite. Unfortunately wifi is only available in the office and not in the rooms. One more drawback is that the hostel does not have a restaurant so you need to walk a kilometre to grab a meal.

        The Lodge ist 1.2km from the Orang Utan Sanctuary. Easy to walk. But if you going to walk in the night better take a torch. The Lodge just opened in November 2015. The Bungalows are new and very comfortable. I personally liked the outdoor showers. Unfortunately room cleaning is not done. Doesn't matter to me. Breakfast is very little, consisting of toast jam , banana and coffee. They plan to open up a restaurant for lunch and dinner too. However for now there is nothing at lodge nor nearby. One has to go to the other restaurants near the entrance of the sanctuary. I heavily recommend the excellent Nature Resort. Great food and alcohol is available. Internet is available only at the reception. Extremely fast! Adi, one of the staff is a wonderful guy and can help you with tour bookings. I think the lodge belongs to the tour operator Nasalis Larvatus. The alsoh ave s Nature Lodge at kinabatang River. Recommended! I would definitely stay here again, especially when you can get a bungalow for 35$.

        Tijdens het douchen ineens geen water meer. Het restaurant heeft beperkte openingstijden, maar een half voor sluitingstijd kan je al niet meer bestellen. Verder is er geen andere mogelijkheid in de buurt om te eten, er is ook een winkeltje, maar je weet nooit wanneer die open is. De locatie is wel goed gelegen, en de dorms zijn netjes en schoon.
