We stayed net 5 days in the Hostel. Also booked our tours there (Kilimanjaro, Safari, Hot Springs) and would highly recommend the place. Staff is really nice and flexible. The place is clean and the food is also really good. They have a good knowledge of the the area and can organize almost everything. The highlight is the rooftop bar where you can meet nice people from all over the globe and enjoy cold drinks with beautiful sunsets.

You should certainly consider this place for your stay in Arusha. Breakfast, diner is included in the price and it is very good. Everything is clean and spacious. There is a rooftop bar as well with all types of beverages. The pool is really refreshing on a hot day. My friends and I really enjoyed our stay.

Stayed at the hostel for a few days. It's really big and this is the new location. (If you see reviews that are pre-Covid, assume they were for the old place). The pool is super clean and nice. The staff are very nice as well. They did a seamless airport pickup to take me to the hostel. The staff are super nice. They are pretty much able to arrange anything you want in the way of outings, and, this is important at least to me, they don't have that "I'm doing it on commission" feel. They are just super helpful, or at least it comes off that way. Also, breakfast and dinner are included. The rooms are brand new (like the whole building). Hot water showers, western toilets. A high wall and a 24hr security guard always walk the grounds. Oh, and this may seem like a small thing, but it was a huge thing to me. The bed was super comfortable. I slept like a rock! Overall, really positive experience.
