Great purpose and help for the street children to be trained and given jobs. The location is wonderful with amazing amounts of birds to watch, especially morning and evening. Good walks, bike rides and visits to Arusha National Park. Also, take the time to visit the foundation as well. Rooms are clean and well prepared.
The service is good and if anything is not to your liking, just mention it and they will do so for you. We wanted to use less plastic bottled water, so brought a filter that they used for us. Very nice service.
