    We had a great stay at the guest house. The first time we came our room had not the best bathroom facilities, but the second room had much better facilities. The GH is quiet, with a nice garden, and the staff is very helpful and friendly. It is in a quiet neighbourhood within walkable distance from the town centre and the beach, but it is a long walk, so for the lazy folks take a boda-boda (motorbike taxi).

    Great location with wonderful and very helpful staff. Next time I fly into Entebbe, this will again be the first place I stay. The owner was very helpful in arranging airport pickup and drop off communication via email which made it easy for me to deal with a one hour flight delay. Thank you, Alice!

    The location is tucked inside residential area, there isn't any restaurant/supermarket around within .5 m. The room is clean & big. The garden is nice & quiet, so you can sit outside & relax. My biggest problem with them is I pre-ordered my dinner at 4PM for 5PM so I can leave for airport at 5:30, they told me at 5 that their chief isn't available, so I end up rush to the airport without dinner, it's a shame that's my last experience in Uganda

    The hostel is safe and it's easy to get a boda to go into town. However the facilities are not very clean. As a solo female traveler, a male staff member made me feel uncomfortable during my time there. The female receptionist was very kind but I felt like I couldn't venture into the common areas often because of the male staff members.
