Junia's guesthouse is a fantastic place to base yourself in Bukit Lawang. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable - when I only emailed them the day before I was due to arrive, they responded promptly, gave me info on how to catch public transport there and met me at the Bukit Lawang station (although they definitely do offer airport transfers as well, I wanted to try the public transport option). The rooms are comfortable, secure and clean - I took the minimalist room which had a double bed, mosquito net, private toilet and shower (it's cold, but you really don't need hot showers), shared balcony and private hammock. The restaurant is beautifully situated as well, right next to the river, and the food is fresh and delicious. Junia's were also really helpful in organising a jungle trek, giving me great advice and storing my baggage for a really minimal fee. As a solo traveller, I was supposed to be paired with another couple for the trek, but when the other couple dropped out, Junia's were so kind to let me continue by myself at no extra charge, which was fantastic service. The best thing about Junia's though, is the vibe. The staff and local guides are so friendly and welcoming, you feel like you've come home. From playing card games and sharing drinks, to group sing-a-longs next to the river, everything about Junia's is designed to make you feel like you're in a home away from home. Thanks guys! And I promise I'll be back soon!
