Property Description

The Five Horsemen is the only hostel of it’s kind in the heart of booming Nsambya, Kampala. We set out to provide a wallet friendly haven for travellers or new recruits in Kampala; our chill out lounge and dining area are perfect for meeting new friends over beers, surfing the internet on our super fast WiFi, starting war with our awesome board games, curling up with a book on rainy days or just straight chillaxing.

Our staff are out of this world and we won’t let anyone tell us any different! They are on hand 24 hours along with 24hr security and are there to lend a helping hand with whatever you need, be it directions, recommendations or booking next travel destinations! Our hostel accommodates for all group sizes and budgets; we offer mixed dorm rooms that sleep 6, and female dorms that sleeps 8, twin rooms, singles and doubles.

For those of you who want to get to know some locals and have a little taste of Kampala’s booming nightlife, take that stairway to heaven aka The Roof Top terrace; you will be guaranteed panoramic views of the city, perfect for sundowners! Our bar is fully stocked and ready to start your night with our ice cold beers or legendary pitchers (not for the faint of heart). We promise good music, wonderful people, stunning sunsets and positive vibes.

Our hostel was started by friends for friends, so what are you waiting for?? Click book!

    This place is without doubt the best hostel I’ve stayed in! Beautiful place, stunning rooftop bar, delightful live music and great vibes. Everyone from the owner to the barman the girls on reception and all the rest of the crew are an amazing bunch of people and always happy to help! Great place to meet new people, socialise and enjoy gazing over the craziness of Kampala, with a beer, and White Russian! The only place to stay in Kampala, I’ll be back sooner rather than later!

    This was by far my best hostel experience and I have absolutely loved my time at five horsemen! The staff is lovely and very helpful, the owner kessia is knowledgeable about kampala and uganda at large with connections and discounted rates to go anywhere. As soon as you get there you can message her on whatsapp for any questions and you can really tell 5h is her project she pours her heart into. 5h is a social and creative hub of the city you're guaranteed to meet interesting people at the bar.

    TL;DR: Amazing staff, welcoming ambience, very clean, and great facilities! Book this hostel if you're looking to have an amazing hostel experience, whether it be your first or millionth time to Uganda! 10+ hostels around the world and this has been the best by far! Kessia, the GM, has done an amazing job making 5HM a place for locals and backpackers/tourists to meet, come together, and share good times! The hostel holds daily events and did I mention the rooftop is breathtaking? Please book!

    Such a great hostel and friendly, helpful team. The rooftop space is great with an incredible view, and has cool events with some of the best DJs in the city and beyond. The rooms are immaculate and comfy. I won’t be staying anywhere else in Kampala when I return. Thanks for the good time guys!

    The Hostel is just the best place to stay in Kampala. We came here because of the roof top view on the Kampala skyline (which is indeed awesome), but stayed and even came again also because of the amazing staff. Everyone is incredibly friendly, helpful, and welcoming and you feel at home immediately. I can 100% recommend everyone in Kampala to come here.

    Great little hub. Positives: Really helpful staff - they will help you order bodas, buses, tours etc. Super clean - we've visited many hostels across Africa & this one was up there with the best. Good breakfast (included) & home made snacks. Fab rooftop bar. Arranged social activities in KLA. Comfy beds & mozzie nets. Clean loos, hot showers. One of the best WiFi connections we've experienced. Bad points: The hostel is located a little way out of town, but bodas are 40p, so no big deal.
