Accommodation: Don't expect the Hilton!
I only came to Bako for a day-trip and so didn't stay here. However, I've found a list of accommodation that's available but don't expect 5-star luxury! However, they were doing some construction when I was there so who knows what lies in the future. (Prices as of March 2009):
Forest Lodge Type 5 (7 units) - 2 rooms, fan, shared bathrooms and toilet - RM157.50 per house/RM105 per room
Forest Lodge Type 6 (2 units) - 2 rooms, fan, attached bathroom - RM78.75 per house/RM52.50 per room
Forest Hostel (4 rooms) - 4 rooms, fan, shared bathrooms and toilet - RM168 per house/RM42 per room/RM15.75 per bed
Campsite - RM5 per person

Bako NP Hostel: Basic and reasonable for the price
I stayed in the hostel room type and took up the whole room by myself at RM40 per room vs. RM15 per bed for 4. (Feb 2009). The room shares very basic and the shared bathroom was not so clean. But what to say for this price in the national park! The room comes with a fan.
See more pic for the room and the link to book the room on line with the Malaysia forestry.

Damai Beach or Kuching: Close to Bako NP
We stayed in Damai Beach and from there we made excursions. You can alternatively stay in Kuching. Please see my Kuching pages for hotel information.

As kampung Bako is a fishermen village, most of the houses there are built close or on the river banks. Some of the houses are built on stilt on top of the river.

Affectionately known as the hovel. Shared the "chateau" with three friends. Two rooms plus a makeshift kitchen/bathroom combination. No aircon, the facilities were not as clean as we would have liked. But it is located in the middle of the jungle, so the minor inconveniences were tolerable.
The best part--the cost was about $1.60 per person per night.

It is the only option.: The NP hotel
The accomodation provided by the National Park is very basic: small bungallows with shared bathrooms.
However, their location is idyllic: next to a quiet beach and surrounded by lush tropical forest where monkeys, snakes, bearded pigs and any imaginable form of life roam free.
