Stayed here for 7 nights, of wich 2 in the jungle. The price is extremely good, not to mention the kitchen. I've had the best gado gado, tomato soup and pancakes i ever tried and the staff were just so super friendly. Nela also took me to some local places including the school where she teaches english. All in all...

I can write many pages about this homestay as we stayed there for two weeks. We just felt really comfortable there - the team is so friendly and accommodating, the food is exceptional good and the rooms are nice with very comfortable beds. And altogether at more than fair prizes. It's just awesome. We also made our jungle trek with...

+ good food, helpful advices from the staff - it's true! they didn't treat you as well as other guests when you didn't book the jungle tour with them. (Even had discussions with them about that) - ugly toilet directly next to the public shower - said they would help but actually cheated on you regarding the prices. Said it...

I think this is the best place I've stayed in by a long shot! All of the staff go out of their way to welcome you, and most will take the time to learn each guest by name so they can properly greet you. Such a warming, friendly atmosphere around the place and great fun at night as the staff...

Brilliant place to stay, in an absolutely beautiful place. Rooms and facilities are lovely & clean, with a great view overlooking the river. The food is very reasonably priced and delicious! And most of all the staff are super fun and friendly. Great atmosphere and an all round great experience.

Where can I start, I came here last year with 2 friends, and never had I experienced a place like it, every single person who works or even enters rainforest guesthouse is treated like family. All year I'd been waiting to come back with my girlfriend and never did I have any doubts about whether it would be as good...

Very cheap rooms. They are absolutely basic (just a mattress on the ground), but nicely decorated. The shared bathroom could be cleaner and a room with a private bathroom is worth the little extra money. The sisters who own this place are very friendly and helpful. They organised all our trips for fair prices. They are also entertaining, singing songs...

Funny and welcoming staff. Nora already helped me via whatsapp how to come at rainforest. The atmosphere was really good and the feeling of almost sleeping in the jungle (but in good rooms with van) felt amazing. Some nights you can enjoy the local music with good food and a beer. Perfect!
