        Only Con was the WiFi connection: it’s nice to not use it but sometimes it is needed for convenience and it only worked in one place (not even in the lobby or rooms, but by the office on site) and even then it was slow at best.

        Everything here is Amazing, the Staff, the food, the room, the view. I arrived late from a delayed flight but the staff stayed up to check me in and help me plant the next days activites. The food was so good here, the breakfast sets up up for the day, all the meals I had for lunch and dinner were very tasty and value for money. the door room and showers were nice and clean. walking distant to the Orangutan and bear sanctuary. Staff always on hand to help or take time out and chat to you. book a tour though them and they gave me discount. the tour was amazing.

        Definitely the cleanest place I've been to in all of SE Asia. The staff is so friendly and they take the time to learn your name which is really appreciated. The beds are comfy the rooms (dorms) are really spacious which is nice. They dont have lockers in the rooms but they have a safe box at the front of you're really worried about valuables. 10/10 would definitely stay again!

        Good place to explore Sepilok”

        Nice place within proximity of key tourist places in Sepilok - all within about 10-15min walk. Good standard of the room, and while a bit dark, you will probably spend most of your time outside. Bathroom is outside - sheltered from outside view and by a net, but somewhat unusually open to environment - but its standard is good and includes a small garden. Price point somewhat higher than usual for Malaysia, though that's the case for all properties in Sepilok. Breakfast not particularly inspiring and selection somewhat limited but at least you start your day not completely hungry. Restaurant a bit pricey, but there's a cafe across the road (or cafeteria over at orangutan center) where you can eat cheaper.

        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!

        Great dorms!! Wifi is a lie, staff mediocre at best”

        Definitely recommend for the great big dorms, quiet location and really nice showers. Some staff was helpful, but the majority quite useless. I feel bad for saying it, but the girl from reception was the worst I've ever seen: constantly misinformed on bus times etc, then they tell you wrong info just to be polite. The girl didn't know how to call a taxi, or how her phone or walky-talky worked to ask someone to help. It took 20min and help from 3 others (she just sat there staring in the distance, while I got her colleagues!) and we nearly missed our bus. Resto is ridiculously expensive for buffet, but no problem: place across the street has wonderful cheap food. Mini market was closed all the time, though should be open 9am-9pm. Free breakfast ought to be a buffet, but they don't do that in low season and still charge the same. The claim to have Wi-Fi is basically a lie: only a few bars if you sit on the steps next to their office in the front (which I needed for work).

        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.

        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!

        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.

        Brandnew”

        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$.

        Very clean, very comfortable, wonderful staff

        The lodge is brand new and very well built, much better finish than most equivalent hostels. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The lodge is about a 15min walk from the bus stop and a 15 minute walk from the Orang utan reservation. The breakfast is basic but adequate. The staff are very willing to help wherever they can and offer good tours to the river and stays at their sister lodge. Overall I would fully recommend the lodge as somewhere to stay, so much so we extended our stay on our second visit!

        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.
