Really nicely furnished. Udin helped us arrange the transfer from Medan and the trekking
Beds should be renovated, they are quite old and termites and cockroaches tend to hide there

Beautiful view of the River and the jungle where you can watch the monkeys run across the rocks. My room was nice and big with a fan, and i was able to leave my bag at homestay (for 50,000) whilst I stayed over night in the jungle. The food was really good, the toilet and shower was clean and the location was perfect. It's quiet in the week but weekends are really busy with local tourists and trekkers. The lady who works there is absolutely lovely and the owner is really easy going. Great place!
The breakfast was a bit expensive (I think i paid 60,000 for banana pancakes which is more than I've paid anywhere else in Indonesia) but I got to see orangutans in the wild so I wasn't too bothered!

The exact accomodation which I really need for staying in Bukit Lawang. Actually the best among of all. Om Udin as the owner really welcome us as their guest with all of his kindness and warm smile! He always make sure everything is alright and good! He recommend us good places and activities to do! The bedroom was superrr comfy, the view and everything! Just call him one call away, he will be very happy to help! Danke schon Om Udin! Definitely will comeback again soon!

The location was perfect, right on the side of the river. The owner was great, was so helpful. Would definitely stay there again. Even saw 2 orangutans over the river from outside my room.

We had the best time at Odin’s place. Perfect location next to the river. You can just jump into the river next to the guest house. Cozy interior in the room and restaurant. The food was very delicious too (maybe a little overpriced) and Odin helped us wherever we had questions and organized us great jungle guides, scooter and gave good travel tips. Would like to come back one day!!

top ervaring”

Udin de eigenaar was super vriendelijk. hij is erg betrokken en warm hartig. Hij heeft bukit lawang laten zien, de plantages en de lokale markt. De leukste accommodatie waar ik ooit ben geweest. D locatie is top, midden in de jungle. Het zit naast de rivier waar je lekker kan zwemmen. Ook heeft hij alles geregeld voor de tour en vervoer van en naar het vliegveld. Er zit ook een restaurant bij de accommodatie die het lekkerste Indonesies eten maakt, de rendan is een aanrader met heerlijke bijgerechten. Ben uiteindelijk hier langer gebleven dan verwacht. Ik heb mij hier een week lang erg thuis gevoeld.

Fantastische kamer waar de apen op het dak springen en door je ramen heen kijken om te zien of je wakker bent. Brutale slimme apen haha. Ze doen je niks, en leven op hun manier in de natuur waar jij verblijft. De locatie van waterstone is perfect om in de straat overal wat te eten of drinken. Bij waterstone zelf kan je lokaal eten en drinken, zeker een must om te doen als je er bent. Je kan heerlijk zwemmen in de rivier, jungle tocht boeken voor 2 dagen of meer. Als je goede conditie hebt raden we meer dagen aan. Anders zijn 2 dagen voor een gemiddelde conditie prima. De hike en snelheid wordt aangepast op niveau. We zagen groepen van leeftijd 60 en kleine kinderen deze.hike met overnachting doen. Helemaal prima. Het dorp is niet ingesteld om een motor te huren, echter heeft Odin voor ons nog een schakelmotor kunnen regelen om echt in contact te staan met de lokale mensen en lekker te verdwalen door de straten van Sumatra. Wij verbleven er 7 dagen en hadden prima er nog aantal weken kunnen verblijven als we tijd genoeg hadden. Zeker aan te raden ! Geniet van de oerang oetans, apen en zeer aardige en grappige lokale mensen. Odin bedankt voor het leuke verblijf en doe de groeten aan de crew. Tot de volgende keer !

Na mijn aankomst een warm welkom door de Nederlands sprekende eigenaar Udin. Samen gezellig een drankje gedaan. Kamer met uitzicht op de rivier was top! Door het hoge dak is het niet te warm en ‘s morgens gewekt worden door apen die op het dak springen geeft je echt het gevoel dat je aan het randje van de jungle verblijft! Faciliteiten zijn basic (koude douche), maar prima. Udin is gastvrij en wilt graag helpen met het plannen van trips en vervoer. Heb hier een heerlijke tijd gehad!

Erg goed”

Super vriendelijk personeel dat je overal mee wilt helpen die ook nog eens goed Nederlands spreekt. Een top locatie voor- en nadat je een jungletrekking hebt gedaan. Ook kun je er erg lekker eten.
Het was niet heel erg nodig qua temperatuur maar een ventilator had fijn geweest.
