      The premise is old and run down.
      We travel to Lechai waterfall and stay one night at forest camp.
      The issues are:
      1. Didn't provide the promised "sleeping bag" for the forest camp. And still charge full rate, didn't give discount rate. This rate is considered rather expensive and not reasonable.
      2. Many ac hoc arrangement as the full trip wasn't communicated well to the staff taking charge during that period.
      3. To me, it was a bit dishonest in that sense and over-charged. Expected could have told us that they are not around and ensure the communication and arrangement was done properly.

      This happened because of the owner wasn't around during our visit. The arrangement was covered by the relatives who doesn't know our communicated planned itinerary. And this wasn't communicated to us earlier until we reached there then only realise this.
      We are not mentally prepared for the unexpected chaos.

      *Our trip is actually in end fo May to early June 2017. (We put here Dec 2017 because no June 2017 option available)

      Staying here at Mulu Village with Brenda & James felt like home. They are super helpfull with tipps on things to do, are very open to sharing their as well as Mulus history with you and whenever you see an animal you are not sure of what it is, they will name it!
      The rooms are perfect, having simple beds and a fan. The windows even feature mosquito nets. The shower and toilet is very spacious and clean. If you are expecting a five star hotel this is of course not the place to stay, but if you want to get a honest look at life is here, very friendly hosts and a place to sgay that feels like home, this is the place to go!
      Thank you Brenda & James, looking forward to seeing you again in the future.

      We stayed here for 3 nights using this as our base while discovering Mulu. Location is a bit outside the park but with a bike it takes about 10 mins to the park entrance. Owners James and Brenda are lovely and are happy to give you tips and ideas of what to do in the area. Worth mentioning it is very basic. The electricity is just on for a couple of hours in the evening so it gets extremely hot at night. With that said, you will not spend much time there as you will be in the park most of the day. Very affordable compared to other accommodation and you have Marriott Hotel next door if you wish to experience some luxury.

      Nice accommodation situated not far from the national park, staff were really friendly and gave plenty of advice on what to do, breakfast was basic but ok. Rooms were basic but just what you needed as spent most of time in national park.
