As previously mentioned, this property is located adjacent to the Bridges to Community office and this is where you are put up when you volunteer for one of their service trips (as I did). Although the hotel is certainly better than the conditions one experiences in the field, the hotel is pretty basic and we experienced some problems, including the toilet breaking, a fuse blowing, a meager shower with only cold water, etc. The place, however, was clean and my daughter enjoyed the various animals on the grounds (toucan, baby rabbits, baby chickens). I have no idea about price, but would assume the rooms are quite cheap. We stayed in one with 5 beds which was quite cramped, and another with 3 beds (roomier) (in the newer and nicer section of the hotel). The hotel is on a major road, but there is a large metal gate that blocks out most of the noise. There is also a small store on the premises where you can buy a variety of goods (including beer!). I also heard there was internet access, but I stood by the front desk for about 10 minutes and was completely ignored by all staff, so I gave up on this pursuit. So, in sum, I would say this place is bearable for a night, but don't expect anything other than the bare necessities (if even that).
