This one-storey hometel was one of two buildings (the other is now used to house computer rooms) originally built to house the employees of China State Construction Engineering Corp., the foreign contractor involved in the construction of the Culasi, Antique-Patnongon Highway. After they left, both buildings were turned over to the university’s administration.
The other building, as well as some others within the campus, suffered considerable damage wrought by Typhoon Yolanda (international name Haiyan). The Korean International Cooperative Agency (KOICA) is helping in the repairs and rehabilitation within the campus as well as the town.
|The hometel's small lobby|
The six single rooms (PhP300) and three 3-pax rooms (PhP900) have shared bathrooms. One other room, used as an office, can be let out during the peak season. Though the other rooms had no TV, you could still watch your favorite programs from the comfort of the sofa at the small lobby.
