Great place to stay in, especially for groups!
Whenever our groups are up for some volunteer mission work, we would stay here, because it's ideal for us. So it's no surprise that a big portion of their guests are student groups, or church groups, from all over the world who are there for community service or cultural learning.
The rooms are nice and spacious, with different configurations for the size of your group.Their rooms can sleep up to 6 people. It's also very clean, and all air conditioned. On the bottom floor is also an area to hang out together with chairs and tables for discussions and meals.
They also provide basic amenities, like free wifi and free drinking water. I also think they can help arrange meals for you if you request for it.
The highlight and specialty of the place really is the staff though. It's run by an amazing team of locals who are very helpful and very friendly. Many times, they would do their best and even go out of their way to make sure you have a great experience there.One occasion, we made a passing mention about wanting to try a local breakfast, but didn't really think further. The next morning, there it was on the table waiting for us during breakfast! They had heard us talk about it and had taken the initiative to get it. We were blown away by their thoughtfulness and kindness.
They're also very trustworthy. I've been there numerous times with groups and we've never encountered any problems. You can be sure that your belongings are safe.
Also, because they've seen and hosted so many groups already, they know some of the best places to go and eat at, so make sure you ask them for their recommendations!
Also, what was also unique was that they helped us to arrange transport. We were in a group, so travelling around by mini-bus was necessary. So they had a few local contacts and helped us arrange a mini-bus throughout our trip there. He also made sure the driver knew the day's plans before he left, so there wouldn't be any hiccups.
Overall, I highly recommend the place if you're thinking of travelling up as a group, or even taking a youth/student group up for volunteer work or missions.
