Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We enjoyed all the comforts of this lovely property. Spacious air-conditioned room with pretty view of garden, Bahorok River and inquisitive monkeys sure to entertain you. It was a real pleasure working with the owner Jeanie. She arranged our private transfer to/from Medan and KNO airport, and 2 days of jungle trekking including raft back. Ask for Guide Suni who is experienced, friendly and so helpful. Beverages available on the property to purchase, breakfast available on request. Also, the little village on riverbank has small cafes and shops that sell beverages, snacks and sundries, all within walking distance. If orangutans are on your bucket list - this is the place to come! Keep in mind they are in the wild and live in trees, so bring binoculars. With patience - you will have a close view like we did! Thank you Jeanie, Jungle River staff, and our guide Suni.

The room is located just above the river bank and u have to cross a suspension bridge to get there. Nice view of the river and the forest. The main rain forest is touching the boundry of the lodge. It takes just about ten minutes to get in to the thick forest. The staff so friendly and helpful. We had the 2-day jungle trek with Jungle River house team, it was fantastic, we saw a lot of orangutans and other monkeys, the track was a great experience a lot more challenged that we expected.
We could recommend this place for sure.

It was the first time for me to trek in jungle, but my guide, Suria, helped me a lot in slippery and hard-to-climb areas, so it was really an amazing experience! I saw orangutans and monkeys up close many times while trekking. I’m so happy and satisfied to come here.
The room I stayed was nice, clean and comfortable but sometimes the water supply stopped, although it was back on soon.

This was my first time to Indonesia and in Sumatra. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience! The Jungle River House was perfect, it is located at the edge of the Rainforest, with high potential of seeing Orangutans which is what I came for. What I didn’t expect was to fall in love with this village and the people in it! At this place they go above and beyond for you! Jeanie was amazing and her English is excellent and now I have a wonderful to look forward to visit again 😊

Location (right on the river bank) is perfect.
