This hostel located just outside the park and it cost 35rm per bed/night with free breakfast! It's a great deal! Margeret is a lovely host, she and her adorable nieces did a great job cleaning the bedroom dorm. Yay :) - this is a good place to stay because: - 35rm - cheapest stay in mulu! - Beautiful wooden long...

Very affordable price and very near to the mulu HQ, just a 100m walk. Paid RM35 per night for the dormitory bed. They also have room for private or couple/ family. Got 4 washrooms and plenty of space to dry your clothes. They provide transport to airport for Rm5 each person. Free breakfast, Western style. Although you can find foods...

The hostel is located less than 5min walk from the Gunung Mulu National Park entrance. It is also close to the airport but easier to get a taxi. We stayed in one of the private rooms and also in the dorm. They both share the same bathrooms but the private rooms are quite far away and you need to go...

Mulu River Lodge was the perfect place to stay for my few days at Mulu. Right at the park entrance, it was so handy. Clean beds, lovely staff and really nice food in the restaurant. Couldn't have asked for a better stay. I also want to say a massive thank you to the wonderful staff - I managed to leave...

I loved staying in the park. We also spent one night at the Marriott but the park was so much better. You can hear the wildlife at night. Go on so many hikes right outside your door. The food is okay. But, really the wildlife is what will amaze you!

Mulu River Lodge is awesome! I gave them 5 stars not because they are a 5 star resort, but because they are perfect at what they do. Great food. I'm vegetarian, and it can get difficult to find anything decent to eat sometimes when I'm traveling. The owner is very understanding and will substitute veggies for any of the meat....

We checked out 4 home-stays/hostels around the park entrance before making a decision and Mulu River Lodge was - in our humble opinion - by far the best value for money. They have one or two private rooms and a big (30 beds) dorm, but it was virtually empty when we were there. It has a nice terrace in front...

I stayed in both the hostel inside the National Park and Mulu River Lodge. Mulu River Lodge was the far better choice. It cost significantly less, facilities were nicer, was less crowded & more relaxed and was no less convenient than staying inside the park. Staff are friendly, great cooked breakfast is included and the dorm is nice and clean...

The closest guesthouse (with a restaurant) to the Mulu National Park. A long non-bunk, well-maintained dorm room which is equipped with clean single beds with clean bed sheets, functional ceiling fans & 4 proper good bathroom/toilets. Owned by a friendly & soft-spoken Berawan businessman, Uncle Edward with his beloved wife who is also the main cook of his restaurant. He...

It is a budget accommodation, so do not have high expectations. Its greatest advantage is its location. it is situated just outside the park, which means that it takes you less than 2 minutes to get to the Park headquarters for guided tours. It also means that you can run back to the Lodge in case you forget anything (torch,...
