If you are nature lover, this is a place for you. Situated next to the river, surrounded by jungle, it looks like a small paradise. Long hair guys, guitars, chill out...
I had a room in Nora's homestay, it is like a bamboo cottage, with mattress, mosquito net and shared bathroom. There were monkeys coming every morning and making a lot of noise, even stole some biscuits from my room through the window. Even you will not have the best sleep here, it is still worth of stay and you will not forget the atmosphere. When I came I got a motorbike pick up on bus station by guy (super cute!) working in the guesthouse which was really convenient (walking takes 30 minutes). There are lots of young people working and they are really cool, playing guitar, singing, taking care of you, owner was okay too. What I totally loved was the food. I spent 6 weeks in Indonesia and traveled Sumatra, Bali, Lombok, put food here was the best! I did jungle trek with them, wanted 3 days but there were not enough people so did 2 days only but was very satisfied with guide, got most experienced one (Danny) and had a real adventure spending the night outside in the jungle with heavy rain, which was a bit scary but not dangerous at the end. Do visit Batu caves, it is really nice. Recommend to take someone from staff with you. Bukit Lawang is easily accessible from Medan and is a must in Sumatra. Miss it a lot!
