The hut or lodging facility is simple and basic, like most typically traditional Javanese houses in the rural areas. There is electricity (yet, no television nor computer). The hut is a three-bedroom house, one of the bedrooms will be occupied by a ProFauna/P-WEC staff member. Kitchen and bathroom (squat toilet) are very simple and basic.

Meals are traditional Indonesian food. Vegetarian food (Javanese vegetarian) will be served per request. Breakfast and lunch are served at P-WEC's cafetaria and dinner is served in the hut.

Living in the hut at the village will provide interesting experience for volunteers allowing them to interact directly with the local people and learn their traditional habit and cultures.

A volunteer can go on foot (walk) from the hut to P-WEC center (700 meters) and ProFauna does not provide a vehicle but can help the volunteer to arrange a motorcycle taxi during his days off.
