The place is very pleasant. Not in the centre of town but with a selection of local shops, restaurants and bars within walking distance. The rooms are clean and well equipped with a lovely lounge, free wi-fi and a kitchen area for preparing food and drinks. The rooms are in buildings within a compound which has 24hr security. Ask taxi for Mikocheni/Rose Garden Rd to get to the right area. Nancy was very helpful and everything was very easy. Would definitely recommend Alemap House.
we effectively did not see any staff during our time there - this felt much more like a house share than a hostel, as we were given keys and were then alone in the house for two days. The owner did come when we had a question one night, but she was travelling the rest of the time. The facility was very nice, but my friend and I both agreed that we would not have felt comfortable as women staying alone there when we thought we reserved a hostel/ b
Alemap House is a wonderful home away from home with very friendly staff and excellent facilities. I couldn't recommend it more highly if you're in Dar for a few days or for longer!
