Followed the directions with my taxi but STILL got lost (arrived from Kenya too late/too much luggage for dala dala). In the dark the sign & bar are easily missed - better to look for the huge 3storey red building just before the bar (all the other buildings are single storey). Also, the Sombetini Rd is also known as Ngusero Rd (& called Ngusero on maps.ME - it doesn't even appear on googlemaps). Anyway, it would also have been helpful to know the last km is unsurfaced. Great hostel though!

The Greenhouse is the perfect stay in Arusha. I liked that it is not directly in the center of the city so that it is not very noisy. The staff is friendly and helpful. We could arrange everything from her for a good price. The beds are good and you get good value for your money as it is very cheap and all meals are included. A nice homely feeling here, we felt very comfortable staying here. Nothing to complain about.

I would strongly recommend this place to backpackers (which are few) because it provides a very real experience of Arusha. It's a bit away from town - so be sure to save if for offline maps before arriving, but Joseph and Benson really try to show you a good time. I will always associate my tanzania experience with them. They totally make the place. Food is basic (toast, sometimes eggs, plain spaghetti, potatoes, tea) but I liked it and the dala dala to and from town was super easy.

Extreme value (all meals included in the price) and a nice social vibe. A bit away from the city center but everything else is superb

The owner and staff are very friendly and helpful, going the extra mile to help. They were especially patient when my plans kept changing. The hostel is a bit out of the way, but really is very easy to get to by daladala and for only 400 tsh. Highly recommended!
