The hostel is close to a shopping mall with a supermarket and restaurants and you can get to town on the Dala Dala's easily. Its a friendly hostel, where lot of people are volunteering in the local area but I was there for a short stay only. There's a lovely garden where you can relax with the resident pet dogs and tortoise. The facilities are pretty good for the price you pay.
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.
