I recently went there for my elective with a few of my friends at Sepilok Rehab Centre and I chose to stay here because it was close (literally 5min walk to Sepilok Orang Utan Rehab Centre) and for the price.
We were shocked at first to find out that our room had one fan only and a small one too and it the blazing hot weather, it wasnt enough. However, the nights were better at least and we can sleep.
The bed was comfortable, the hot shower (not that we need them because of the weather) was functional but the flow of the water is not that strong so we took our bath using the pail and bucket provided.
There is also that stinky smell coming from outside the bathroom sometimes in the night. I don't know where that is from but it was really disturbing haha.
The staffs were really nice though. We requested a few things not easily available, and they provided us with those things, free of charge!
The breakfast, although almost always the same menu everyday, but it was tasty and sufficient.
And we have neighbours living below us who I think are workers there, sometimes they turn on the TV and their musics too loud. And they smoke most of the times (even early morning 5am++) and the smoke will enter our rooms.
So that was a bit turn off staying here.
Other than that, it was a pleasant stay. Will definitely stay here again, but I would definitely book the one with air conditioning. haha
