You may be interested in reading this book that is about to come out called God is in My Backpack. It's the story of a young rabbi who quits the pulpit to travel the world for 5 years. He often stays in Chabad Houses as he travels, so it might interest you. You can pre-order it here: http://www.indiegogo.com/Godisinmybackpack?c= home until January 1, 2013.

Every Chabad House is independent. It's rabbi is responsible for his own fund raising and for deciding what activities he does. I know Chabad rabbis who give up their own beds for guests and I know others who feel taken advantage of by guests or tourists who take and take but do not even attempt to cover basic costs. So you would have to speak to the local Chabad rabbi and find out. Whatever you do, be a mentch and pay what you can. 2013-05-16 22:41:04 - Sharon Re: PLACE TO STAY
Email a local shaliach in the area near the hospital (use chabad.org to locate the nearest). Any shaliach will be happy to help you find somewhere to stay!
