Stayed 3 nights including an overnight stay in the jungle. I highly recommend their jungle tour guides. We did the 2 day tour with Andi but met the other guides from the guesthouse, all of whom were knowledgable, welcoming and responsible despite what other reviewers say. The food is reasonably priced and freshly made and the communal areas are clean...

The place seems good and the location nice, but since the moment we didn't book any trekkings with them we stopped feeling welcome. -We had a lovely trekking somewhere else, with a great and proffesional guide, much cheaper and much more respectful with the enviroment (we had seem pics of other guests at Rainforest and we saw their guides feeding...

This place is great for solo travellers. There is a central restaurant area that is good for meeting new people with good views of the river while having a beer. The staff are very nice and can provide all information that is needed. They were also nice enough to pick me up and drop me off at the bus terminal....

All in all...

I can write many pages about this homestay as we stayed there for two weeks. We just felt really comfortable there - the team is so friendly and accommodating, the food is exceptional good and the rooms are nice with very comfortable beds. And altogether at more than fair prizes. It's just awesome. We also made our jungle trek with...

+ good food, helpful advices from the staff - it's true! they didn't treat you as well as other guests when you didn't book the jungle tour with them. (Even had discussions with them about that) - ugly toilet directly next to the public shower - said they would help but actually cheated on you regarding the prices. Said it...

I think this is the best place I've stayed in by a long shot! All of the staff go out of their way to welcome you, and most will take the time to learn each guest by name so they can properly greet you. Such a warming, friendly atmosphere around the place and great fun at night as the staff...
