Three meals a day can be requested which are served in a dining room with tables lovingly set and meals served by the young students studying their hospitality course. The meals are freshly made, full of flavour and varied, with quantities greater than you could possibly eat. Rich dark coffee is also served on request.
Bathrooms are clean and roomy with flush toilets and you bathe by using ladles of water and pouring it over yourself. On cool nights you are provided with flasks of hot water to bathe with. For a few dollars your laundry can also be done and appears clean and ironed on your bed in the afternoon.
Altogether, three meals, a beautiful room with towels and clean linen for under USD$25.00 per day per person. See details below.
