I think that the business here is volunteering. the rest of the guests have to pay even if they want to leave their luggage during a safari ($6/day). most staff are nice but there are also other trying make business all the time... it is 10,000 or 12,000 TZS by taxi from the downtown ($8) but if you take a daladala is only 400TZS. Atmosphere is good for people younger than me... Facilities are good.


Ujamaa hostel is very cosy - it felt like coming home when we returned after climbing Kili! The food is wholesome, staff friendly and helpful, guests lively and there's an overall great atmosphere. Definitely recommend staying here when in Arusha.
