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.

    The Leopard slow hostel is great! I got to Dar very late in the night and everything went to smooth. The place is very clean, breakfast good. Nothing to fault, I'd definitely go back.

    This is a restaurant/bar with a hostel attached, rather than vice-versa, for whatever that's worth. A lot of locals go there to eat and drink after work. It doesn't have the kind of hostel camaraderie that is common in a backpacker's hostel.... again, for whatever that's worth. That said, I met a lot of interesting people and had a great stay at the Slow Leopard. Try to be there on a Thursday night for the amazing Slow Sessions live music. I'll be back.

    Great location! This is a sports bar which has some dorm rooms. The included breakfast is very limited, but their regular menu is decently priced. In the dorm, many people did not lock the door when leaving, so make sure you utilize a locker. The owner also helped us with finding a cab to the TAZARA station when it was time to leave. Overall, great stay.

    It's a great place in one amazing neighborhood in Dar Es Salaam. The owner was very kind to us and he helped us with everything we needed. He even contact us with his friend in Arusha to do the Safari. Even if the neighborhood is good, its quite far from city center but Uber is really cheap!

    Very nice spot for a hostel, as two young women staying there we felt a bit out of place. As they have a football screen it makes sense that it caters more to older men, but it was nice regardless. The staff were super friendly and helped us with our trip back home which was really nice!

    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!
