This place is very clean and high quality compared to other hotels in Tanzania. Okay, the toilet doesn't always flush and the shower knobs fall off and the tub isn't very white and there are ants sometimes and the AC is often broken, BUT it is warmly situated with comfortable beds, spacious bathrooms, organized rooms, and pretty glow-in-the-dark spots on the ceiling that make you feel like you're sleeping under the stars. They even have a pool (yes it's safe to swim in... at least we did).
-use bottled water to brush and floss your teeth
-wear flip-flops in the shower (that was recommended to us by our team leaders/principals, though it wasn't always necessary)
-keep all windows and doors securely shut during the night and when you are out (for security reasons, and to ward off bugs)
-wake up early to watch the sunrise on the roof
-there will be many workers offering to carry your bags--this is how they make money. Tip them (a few thousand shillings will do, less than 5000)
-learn a few words in Swahili (jambo = hello, asante = thank you, asante sana = thank you very much, karibu = welcome, or 'you're welcome')
