If you have stayed in this shelter, how was your stay?

User Answers

  1. Extremely poorly due to terrible meals with near zero nutrition, fighting, the mentally ill & addicts aren't separated from the few with jobs & scream &/or cry all night. Staff takes no blame for anything & its all your fault. The stay was more a hindrance than a help. At 10pm you have to drop what your doing if you're far enough away from the village to be around normal people to travel back for a night off.

Do you have any advice for those wanting to stay at this shelter?

User Answers

  1. If you can, if you have any other option, don't go. Even a tent is better than constantly replacing your stolen electronics while staff blames you for not sitting with a power bank for 4-6 HOURS by an overused outlet that's weak. It's nothing but hassle & drama.
