This is a town that gets little travelers visiting. That's why there is not much accommodation when it comes to the basics westerners are used to.
Although, it is still a great place to visit just to see and possibly experience a bit of the culture there, if the locals befriend you. The people do not speak any other languages besides there own, so it's handy to learn basic phrases to facilitate communication. There are places of interest to visit, like villages nearby that specialize in ikat weavings and hot springs that are nearby.
