Bako National Park Lodge/Hostel: Book ahead if you can....

Bako offers rooms in a lodge and hostel, and also has several campsites.

I stayed in the hostel, which had a simple 4 bed, no frills setup. Facilities include electricity, two fans in the room, running water, toilets with indoor plumbing and private shower stalls. Despite the lack of A/C, the room was bearable during the evening.

It's a good idea to book ahead, as Bako has limited accommodations that usually fill up fast. They have a decent online booking system (http://ebooking.com.my), and were relatively prompt in verifying my reservation. However, it's probably easier to just call them (if you can) in order to get instant confirmation.

Camping: Be more adventurous?

Well, I have never tried camping in this park before. But I do think it would be pretty fun and exciting to camp and knowing there are wildlife roaming around the park. ;-)

Campsite rental is RM4 only.

Chalet (no particular name for it): Want privacy?

To avoid disappointment (especially during weekends), it would be advisable to book well in advance, as there are limited numbers of chalet only.

It consists of 2 to 5 beds at RM84/chalet and RM42/room.

More privacy. You don't have to share bathroom and kitchen with many people. As there are only two rooms in a chalet.
