Agun the owner, Joseph and Akim (Kim) did a fantastic job of looking after us in Bukit Lawang. They have 4 rooms, 2 of which are under renovation but the room we stayed in next to the river on the 1t floor was fantastic. Nice and clean, 4 poster bed, big balcony with sunbed and hammock overlooking the river. The...

We stayed here only for one night after staying at a different place the nights before. The location is great -- at the end of Bukit Lawang, a minute away from the Orang Utan feeding station, directly at the river. The ground floor room has even a little garden and direct access to the river. Great to relax in the...

Jungle Tribe is a great place to stay in Bukit Lewang. Although a little more expensive than some of the backpacker places (like Nora's for example). The only thing I'm still not sure on which rooms belong to Jungle Inn (next door) and which ones belong to Jungle Tribe. Also I'm not sure why we were put in the shack...

I was travelling for 2 months in Southeast Asia with a friend and one of the best places we stayed was this one. Really cool people who tried to do their best and gave lots of entertainment in the evenings (guitar playing etc), awesome to meet some other people. We also did the jungle tour for 2 days, one night....

Staying at the Jungle Tribe was one of the best decisions I made for the trip. Although my friend and I were only there for a night, the staff welcomed us right from the start, where we were picked up by Agun from the airport even though we did not make prior arrangements. He took us to one of his...

We were backpacking through SE Asia so used to roughing it in prison cell like rooms. This was a world away! Beautifully designed, the room was huge and overlooked the river and jungle. We spotted monkeys and on our last day we were really lucky to spot orangutans! The staff are lovely, they only have a couple of rooms but...

Stayed four nights at Jungle Tribe and loved it. Agun organised the airport pickup from Medan to Bukit Lawang for my wife, daughter and I. At BL we were greeted by 2 guys from Tribe who helped carry our bags to our lodgings. We stayed in the stand - alone riverside "house". My wife and I stayed in the upstairs...

We were picked up at the airport by a guide and someone from the hotel and had a reservation for 1 room, for three nights. The rooms have great views and are next to the river that is used by the locals for washing etc. The jungle starts at the other riverbank, so it feels like sleeping in the jungle....

Jungle Tribe looks lovely, hence why we booked the 2 rooms for our family. This was done many weeks in advance with many emails before arrival to reconfirm our booking. One email only 3 days before arrival! We had a ring from Agun the day before we arrive to say that there were people still in the rooms and that...
