    It was our second time there, it's really a good hostel, the only problem it's the noise all, people, "party" and it's late at night so... But except this everything it's perfect, VERY clean, hot shower, good wi-fi, the manager is really friendly, good breakfast, really nice hostel, thanks you again !

    If you want to find this place on google maps, enter "Mikocheni Resort Center" not "MRC Backpackers". My experience here was good overall -- the location and amenities weren't the best, but its impossible to deny the value for money. If you're looking for somewhere for a quick, comfortable, and cheap stay while you recover from Jetlag or have a stopover in Dar, you could do a lot worse.

    It is really hard to find MRC Backpackers as there are no signs and even Uber drivers don´t find it there. The first night we got there I asked about the pool they have a picture on their facebook page and I was told there is no pool. We found it only two days later as it is strangely located, opposite to the main area kind of hidden behind a fence. I wonder we did not find it if their own staff members don´t know they have a pool. The breakfast was ok but new towels would be needed.

    They were so unorganised. The shower and toilet had bugs crawling in it and hadn’t been washed down! The dorm is right next to the speaker outside and it is a party place till early hours In the morning! Uber drivers didn’t know where the place was kept getting cancelled on. There are no lockers in the dorm but luckily it was just me so I got to keep the key. There were no other people in the hostel

    Would not recommend at all. Got here by night and it was quite difficult to find since they don't have an address. When we finally arrived, they tried to charge us 10,000 Tsh more as they claimed the room prices were higher than what the website shows. We refused to pay so we were downgraded and got a room that was really dirty. After arguing with the lady from reception (not very friendly) for 30mins they gave us the room we had booked. Also, pizza in the restaurant took 90mins. Bad experience!
