All participants are expected to be environmentally responsible and to use all resources with restraint, especially water, paper and electricity. You will be expected to clean up after yourself, and to play your part to keep the accommodation neat and tidy.
All accommodation is provided during the programme, in shared guesthouses in the village of Penestanan Kaja, about 20 minutes walk from Ubud town. This rural, unspoilt village is set off the tourist track, surrounded by rice paddies. The village offers a true cultural immersion into the Balinese way of life.
You will be staying in traditional Balinese compounds in their own shared houses but will be living alongside homes lived in by local families. It’s an authentic way to experience Balinese culture and meet the friendly local people.
Each house is mixed sex and provides accommodation for to up to 10 people, in single-sex dorm rooms sleeping between 4-8 per room. The accommodation is basic but comfortable with bunkbeds and a fan in each room. There is also a communal area and a basic shared kitchen with a fridge in each house. There are mosquito screens at the windows but individual mosquito nets are not provided in the accommodation so you may want to bring one with you. A local laundry service is available for USD5 per load.
Bathrooms are shared and have western toilets and hot water. You also have use of a nearby guesthouse pool for a small charge of around £1.50.
The accommodation compounds are very safe, and local men keep a round-the-clock eye on who is entering the compound. There are no locks on the bedroom doors so we recommend you bring a padlock with you to lock your suitcase. You should also bring a torch with you to find your way around after dark as there are no street lights in the village. Please note: There is a 10.30pm curfew at the volunteer houses.
There are two local cafes in the village which offer internet access and are also a good place to relax with a snack or a drink. The local shop sells snacks and bottled water. A good selection of shops, pharmacies and places to eat and drink are available in Ubud, which is a twenty minute walk from the village. There is also a medical centre in Ubud as well as ATMs (please note there is no ATM in Penestanan Kaja).
