It's very rare that I give a hostel 100%. This place deserves it. Wayne, the manager, was absolutely fantastic. He gives very good recommendations and directions. The hostel location is solid and the atmosphere is very positive. Has good internet and good food in the surrounding area. Try Knead for a nice thin-crust wood fired pizza. Beds were comfortable and showers were clean. All in all, a great hostel.
The staff are so incredibly bad at their jobs it's amazing. Having now stayed at nearly 30 hostels around the world, I can unquestionably say that this is the worst experience dealing with hostel personnel I have ever encountered. Do NOT stay here if you want to keep your sanity.
This is a little hostel owned by Bob and Joan. They are both very helpful and the hostel has a very homey atmosphere.
Great place to stay if you want to absolutely relax and get away. Shebbi, Anu, etc. were all very kind. Everything I asked for, they did all they could to help me out with. The food was excellent and I got to go out and hunt for Octopus for free. They also offer free guided trips to town and the local caves. Most importantly, while you're at this hostel, none of the annoying touts that pervade the rest of Zanzibar will bother you. You will be in complete serenity with the other guests.
Staff was really helpful in securing a taxi in the morning. People were chilled out. Great place, probably the best in Arusha.
Pretty good hostel. A wee bit expensive is all.
Best hostel out there. Staff like Patrick make it amazing.
I don't think I've ever given a hostel 100% before, but this one gets it. Can't really complain about anything besides Bangkok's ridiculous heat and humidity. Talk to the staff, they're awesome.
The blonde girl from California who works at the front desk is one of the most helpful people I've ever met in terms of hostel staff. A+. Great showers, generally good character/atmosphere. Very clean, nice facilities. Drinking games were played downstairs at this hostel and the hostel has a playstation or some sort of video game system w/ FIFA. That's just win. Only complaints were the 10 am check-out time and the very poor security for holding your luggage.
This hostel was really budget. As in only stay here if you're really in a pinch or need to catch up on a few hours of sleep before your next flight. I cut this hostel some slack as far as location: you'll probably struggle to find a better located place for this price. Clealiness and facilities are absolutely horrible. Character/Atmosphere seemed ok, but no one really said hi to me my entire time there, which is abnormal for hostels.
Way too far from the center of San Fermin.
