I stayed at waka waka with 3 female friends of mine and we were treated like princesses :) "Obama" the owner of the hostel couldn't do enough to make us feel welcome and happy. He called it our home and told us we can do what we want and have what we want. Him and his friends were really really kind to us and cooked us a meal with drinks on our last night and it was delicious. Really loved the endless tea. We will definitely be going back to our Waka Waka family - WE MISS YOU!!!

I had a great time here although my airport pick up did not work out because they forgot so it was quite an adventure to find it. The staff here is friendly and always go out of their way to make sure everything is good. The one thing I did notice is the lack of organization. There were people who said they had reservations but were turned away and then one evening, there were a couple beds that were double booked which could explain my lack of airport pickup. As a warning, this is a loud hostel


Good hostel. The staff is really nice and always helpful. However, the staff should keep track of which beds are used, be because there was some problems.


The host is great, the breakfast was awesome. The atmosphere is espectacualar. :)


When we arrived at Waka Waka hostel the place was fully booked, even though we had a reservation. The guys offered us another hostel prentending it was in the same style as the waka waka, which it wasn't. The place they brought us to was way to small and not comfortable at all. We will never retrun to the waka waka hostel and won't recommend it to anyone else. It felt like a scam, because we ended up in a s**t other hostel of 'the same company'. 10 other travellers had the same problem.
