Brought a group of high school students and felt safe and all accommodations were fantastic. This is a must stay in Moshi! I will return with students next year.

About 25min walk to town on a really dusty road, not a super enjoyable walk. Not really places to hang out, outside seating you stare at barb wire. The staff is super nice but the tours seemed really expensive. They do your laundry for free though so that's awesome as well as use a generator when the power goes out.

Hi Briana, thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. We are sorry that you didn't enjoy the walk to town. Moshi does get dusty during this time of the year, that is true. But at the main road, a 5min walk from rafiki backpackers, is a dala dala stop that takes you directly to town. I remember I told you about this option. I will pass your warm words about our staff on to everyone as this always the best reward they can get. Thank you! All the best, Stephanie
