Black Cat Bunyonyi Hostel is a simple eco-friendly place for Backpackers, Families & Friends.
We have different huts with double beds & a mixed dormitory. In our restaurant, you can have some extraordinary and very tasty vegan & vegetarian food and all kind of drinks (we offer selfmade cocktails like Rosemary Gin & Applepie Whiskey with herbs from our garden).
The whole place is a big garden with an open restaurant and a swimming dock where you can listen to the birds, jump into the lake for a swim (our staff consists of swimming teachers and rescue swimmers) or experience a variety of activities like canoeing, hiking, a boat tour, and many more. Feel free to ask us about all those adventures which you can add to your stay to make it unforgettable.

Our hostel is located at Lake Bunyonyi on the opposite of the small harbour village Rutinda which you enter through the Bunyonyi Road which starts at the end of Kabale in direction of Rubanda/Kisoro.
We are surrounded by small mountains and have a beautiful lake view.- our village above us is called Kyabahinga.

When you arrive in Rotinda at the small harbour, give us a call and we are goint to pick you from there by boat. Our place is located 3 minutes away on the opposite there. View House Rules

    I had a very nice experience and stayed for 5 more days than I initially wanted. But you need to hurry up because Daan who is running the place right now and cooks awesomely leaves in around two weeks. The breakfast and the menu isjust insane and all the things are homemade. E. G ravioli, burgers... Just great! A place to stay for some time in a relaxed atmosphere

    There is no limit to the things that make this hostel great. We extended our stay twice because of amazing food, impeccable customer service, and one of the most relaxing spots in Uganda. The staff did everything to ensure that we got the most out of our experience from renting canoes to guided viewpoint hikes. Highly reccomend if your looking for a laidback backpacker vibe at Lake Bunyonyi.

    Stayed there longer than planned - was just too good. They newly renovated everything wonderfully and lowered prices at the same time compared to my stay there 2 years ago. Will definitely come back and recommend everyone who comes to bunyonyi for relaxing and nature experience

    Owners nice but dodgy manager 'Rodgers'! Ripped us off for the car rental, said we owed extra 200,000 because car was late despite not collecting til 5pm. Prior to booking agreed we wouldn't be responsible for mechanical faults, car broke down he paid behind our backs for mechanic fees & police fine then added it to our accomodation bill, extra 520,000. He messaged us to donate money to him and kept sending all the girls creepy messages asking to be their boyfriend. Won't return with him there.
