Property Description

In 2014, the Slow Leopard was opened as a little sports bar dishing up a couple of different burgers. By 2017 it has become one of Dar es Salaam premiere bars and definitely the number one spot for burgers! Late in 2016 we opened the upstairs guesthouse with a double room as well as a 6 bed dormitory available for travelers looking for a place to crash at a reasonable budget.

Supremely located in the leafy suburb of Masaki, the Slow Leopard Dar is just minutes away from shops, cafes, restaurants and bars. From Masaki, it is a short trip to the city, the ferry to Zanzibar or even the islands of Bongoyo or Mbuya. Our bar downstairs is a favourite local spot, dishing up our famous burgers and cold drinks with plenty of live sport available.

So whatever your reason for being in Dar es Salaam, whether it be work, travel or catching up with friends, you can count on a clean and comfy bed in an air conditioned room and a cold drink at The Slow Leopard.

    we‘ve stayed here for two nights, its an amazing hostel with an awesome garden area/restaurant. the complementary breakfast is delicious and staff is really helpful and friendly. henry and eddie helped us planning our entire trip in tanzania pointing out places to visit off the beaten track and for traveling on a budget. also they arranged a 2h swahili crash course for the two of us with a great teacher. we felt very welcomed and at home:) asante sana and see you soon

    Great hostel for an easy stay. Located right next to Slipway market and the water it takes you out of the business of the city. There's really great local food places within walking distance and a bus stop right across the street. The staff were lovely and had great recommendations for us! The breakfast is exceptional - great value add, but the food and beer for lunch/dinner was really expensive compared to local places. Beds were comfortable and AC worked. Internet was great! Would stay again.

    Just stayed here for a quick stop over. Facilities were nice with the beach and a good grocery store close by. We were the only ones at the hostel but looks like it could be a cool spot if more people are around.

    Hostel was very clean and had good AC in the dorm. However, staff were very unfriendly and unwelcoming and gave no information about the hostel and were rude on arrival. There were no mosquito nets and the dorm was next to the bar which was very loud until early hours of the morning. There was live music in the bar which was great and the food we (finally) had was very tasty!
