    We were warmly welcomed at Runako Lodge. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We felt very safe in this area. We had a triple room with our own bathroom. Everything very clean and tidy. In the evening you could eat in the hostel against payment, that was also very tasty. We are happy to recommend the hostel to others.

    I stayed at this hostel Oct 29-Nov2/17 and Nov 10/17. I was met at the airport and zipped to the hostel. The beds are comfortable and the whole facility is very clean. I had a great breakfast each day, free Wifi. Hostel is very secure in a walled enclosure. Each room has its own key. Thomas is a fountain of info about banks, ATM's, tours and safaris. Welcoming and very helpful staff. Gorgeous, well kept grounds to relax in. I give this hostel an "A".

    It feels like a Homestay rather than a buzzing hostel!! Everybody is so nice, welcoming and helpful!!! Food was delicious! Rooms are big and clean! It was a little hard to find at first and the area seemed a little sketchy when we arrived at night..but once you know where to go, it’s perfectly fine in daylight! They helped us arrange our Safari, stored our luggage and helped us organize our bus journey back! Very very nice people! Thank you for the nice stay!!!!

    The place is really clean and the staff is amazing. Although the location is bad, the address in google needs to be fixed and the atmosphere was not that good (we were the only guests) I reccomend if you want a silent night and a good breakfast but not if you want to party

    Too far from town. Way too expensive and inconvenient to leave all the time, which you have to do if you plan on eating anything after breakfast. Says there is a store with snacks...there is make sure you have water or drinks or snacks if you stay here. Bed was decent and always had hot water, but if you plan to relax and sleep...the school with LOUD singing, drumming, and kids screaming ALL DAY, multiple times a day, is not going I allow that to happen. I would not stay here again.
