Very good”

Best reception from Gia and his wife, excellent food and services Also awesome trek with Jasu, the best guide you could have ! Had a wonderful time with him and the orang -outangs in the jungle :) I highly recommend the place, more than value for money, it really feels like homestaying
Only the bathrooms are not really well equipped, but always cool to have a bucket shower from time to time

Amazing! Awesome staff, great rooms and so much to do in the jungle!”

Well...I think nothing describes our experience better than this: We had 30 days in Indonesia and we planned to spend the first ones in Brown Bamboo. Guess what, we ended up spending all 30 days in Brown Bamboo. Why? Well, first of all the Value for Money is by far the best we had now in 2 years full time travelling. The facilities are way better than what we had e.g. in Philippines or Malaysia where we paid about 8 times the price. There is also so much to do in bukit lawang (Jungle, Orang Utan, Snake spotting, walking along the river, caves, Landak River, etc...) that those 30 days vanished pretty fast. The rooms are great, you have your own bathroom with toilet and shower, a large bed (nice for me as I am almost 2m tall) with a moskito net which is a big plus. You can easily relax in from of your room as you have a table and comfortable chairs, have a free coconut from one of the trees or just watch the river flowing by. Last but not least the main reason we spend the whole month their was the staff and Gia &amp; Sri. The owners are amazing, they provided us with all the information we needed, organized tours, airport transport, etc. for us. They also gave us several lifts to the nearest ATM where there are no fees which is about 10km away in Bahorok. They showed us around and even took us on a trip into the jungle to a small place near Landak River where we enjoyed a big BBQ with them and their friends &amp; family and could stay a night there. We wish Gia, Sri &amp; Menda as well as all other staff all the best and will be back next year! :-) Cheers, Sanni &amp; Philipp

Agradable place”

They picked me up from the bus station and brought me to the bus when I leaved. It was a quiet place with interesting bathroom. They arrange trek to the national park. The food is good and cheap.

Great quiet hostel with awesome family.”

Brown Bamboo is the best place to spend few days in Bukit Lawang. The owner is super helpful and the whole family is awesome, you feel like home from the very beginning :). They have a restaurant with great food and nice price!
You can book an orangutan tour in the hostel which is great and I highly recommend it. I just can&#39;t recommend to go with a guide Moan - he went without assistant, walked super fast, hundreds meters before us. Doesn&#39;t give any information about what&#39;s around during the journey. It becomes boring and just walking. On the other hand the cook Alan was amazing and substituted the guide also :D.

Good”

The location, was quiet, but close to the town centre. Staff were ready to help &amp; friendly. Always able to book whatever trek, adventure you wanted. We went out one night to see snakes. Food was basic but well cook. Definitely value for money.
The toilet stopped flushing half way through our stay, but we just used a bucket that was in the bathroom. The bathroom didn&#39;t have a complete roof so mosquitoes &amp; rain etc came in. No house keeping, so the room got a bit muddy.

Lovely little guesthouse with great staff!”

The guesthouse has an excellent location on the river just on the near edge of the village within a few minutes walk of the main village. The room was excellent value for money and was clean and spacious. The WiFi was ok. There are only 5 rooms so the guesthouse felt nice and personal. The restaurant was really good and excellent value for money! We loved all the meals and the food was far better than anywhere else! They even have proper coffee (not on the menu) which was a rare treat around these parts of the jungle! The young lads who work there really need to be recognised for their excellent service! They were always smiling, always helpful and always friendly no matter what the time was. They are an asset to the guesthouse and made our stay exceptional!
Only small issue was room 2 which had the water tank over the top of the bathroom. During the night this tended to flood and would pour into bathroom which was quite noisy. the bathroom is open air anyway and the staff sorted it out as soon as we mentioned it.
