I stayed here with my extended family including my elderly father. We had a good time and the food was delicious. The place is very spacious and has a good Home feeling. we really loved it. The owner was always there to attend to our specific needs and even gave an extra van to transport us around.

The White House was the perfect stay for my first Solo traveling experience! I always felt at home and welcomed, the dorms are nice. You get everything you need and the breakfast was my favorite! I could manage everything with the help of the hostel owners and after some weeks it felt like a second home.

We stayed here for 4 nights and wish we could have stayed longer. We loved hanging out with Richard, the included breakfast, good wifi and comfy beds. The drinks are reasonably priced, there is a fire most nights to sit around. See you next time

This is my first time visiting Arusha and staying at the White house hostel. This hostel is absolutely superb, the staff are friendly, helpful, full of local knowledge and go the extra mile. The atmosphere is cool and cosy, It feels like home! Rooms are well equipped … The bed is very comfortable and the pillows are the fluffiest ever…I slept peacefully and deeply…..I enjoyed chilling at the bar at night… amazing cocktails and astonishing music… food is really good “ chakuli ki tam sana” 😊… I spent 6 nights and couldn’t leave this wonderful place!! Every time I’ll have the opportunity to visit Arusha, White house will be my place 😊😊
