Homestay hosts are trained to provide food and drinking water in a hygienic and palatable manner. Should you have special dietary requirements, please let the home stay host know in advance. Guest will be served traditional village food unless they request otherwise. Home - stay operators have been trained to clean and maintain toilets (Traditionally toilets are away from the main house in Sikkim, but some home-stay are beginning to make these adjustments to specifically cater to the needs of tourist) so that they are acceptable to guests and also provide clean furnishing and bed linens. The most important things are to communicate your need to the home stay operators and to remain flexible, villager are as eager to learn about your life and your culture as you are about theirs.
