It was a great place. The time I was there it had a lot of other volunteers also, so a place with so many different cultures. The staff was great. The jobs were not hard, basic stuff few hours a day. And you get to learn so-so-so much from the monk. They teach you Thai, about Dhamma and Buddhism. You get to meditate with them. It was all a great experience!
