The people of Kampala, and Ugandans in general, are very kind and friendly and are very approachable. Kampala, with a population of approximately 2.5 million, is by far the largest city in Uganda. It is not yet completely overwhelmed with traffic and sprawl like Nairobi and Lagos. Additionally, Kampala is very safe to walk around, even at night, a welcome fact for many a high-strung visitor arriving from Nairobi.

It has a perfect location and offers basic and clean rooms with simple decorations at an affordable rate!

    I was super happy with my stay at Ewaka guesthouse, it has a really relaxed atmosphere and the owner is so friendly and welcoming and really makes you feel free and at ease. The highlight for me was definitely the big garden full of green and the huge avocado tree in it! It also feels like a very safe place, plus there is a kitchen you can use. I would recommend this place to anyone staying in Kampala!

    Best hostel I ever stayed at. What makes this hostel the best is the owner Julius and manager John. They go out of their way to make your stay here in Kampala as plesant as possible.

    Mosquitoes! Mosquitoes! The dormitory is filled with mosquitoes and their mosquito net is no longer effective. Also, the dorm is very HOT! Little ventilation. I couldn’t sleep almost the night without mosquitoes buzzing in my ears and me dripping in sweat. Uncomfortable

    The place was good. The staff was helpful and the room was fine. There is equipped kitchen and the beds are comfortable. There is hot water but the pressure is really low also it is a little bit out of town but not to far just 10 to 15 min away from city centre. There is also a nice market just 5 min walking away. All and all recommended :)

    - Location is very difficult to find. They should add a better description and provide signs near the Ntinda market so it's clear how to get there.
