    I have been there a few times. Accomodation for volunteers is very basic. Unless they made some major improvements expect bunk beds and shared bathrooms. You are not going to spend much time in your bedroom anyway so it does not matter much.

    Enjoy.

    It's a charity that organises holidays for people with disabilities. They use volunteers to provide majority of care and support for the guests. It's quite fun and good experience.
