    The owner is so nice guy, the room is good, only tricky thing is that the bathroom is outside. For low budget traveler best option in Jinka.

    The owner, Z, is Ethiopian American who lived in America 18 years. Z speaks great english and helped set us up with good guide/tour of various tribes at very reasonable price. The pension is very basic but perfect for those on very tight budget. Bed was good shape. Shower and toilet are both outside and rustic. But you will not find better for less than US$7 in Jinka. My review is based on value for money. Remember... not a hotel but rather basic local pension.

    The place and staff are very nice, although the location can be a bit of a problem, especially if it rains or if you want to go out for dinner

    Unfortunate As the tuk tuk arrived i heard one of the staff say faranji- foreigner which made me think that maybe they don't get many stay there. That afternoon another staff member got drunk and had a physical fight with one of the Ethiopian guests! Facilities are simple and the property is isolated. It's unfortunate as the tener is really nice And does how best to make you comfortable.
