    My favorite hostel in Arusha! May not be close to city center, but I enjoyed the walk (about 30-40 minutes) and it was completely safe. Loved getting to interact with the people on my way to and from town. The staff was super friendly! Talk with Greg about things to do during your stay or a safari. Breakfast was so good. Lots of fruit, plus eggs, toast, crepes. You can pay $6 for lunch or dinner. I had dinner and it was way worth the $6 for all that you get. Chill atmosphere with a few people.

    Thanks to George for always being there to pick us up and for everyone for being easy to contact at any time. Also massive thanks to Greg adventures for such an amazing and value for money safari. Definitely recommend Villa Poa as a base for national parks and Kilimanjaro, don’t be put off by the distance out of town as it’s never a problem to get into Arusha. Breakfast and dinner also delicious! Will be telling a lot of people about this place.

    I felt very welcomed from the minute I walked in. All the staff are very friendly and gave amazing service. For the service, safety, comfort and good vibes living in this hostel, you're getting much more than your moneys worth at the price point charged. If you have any questions about the experience, please don't hesitate to reach me at jonathan.v.wan@gmail.com.

    The building is beautiful. The staff are very nice and helpful. There's a guard at the gate. However the biggest draw back is that there is only one washroom that contained the toilet, the sink and the shower. It made things very awkward and uncomfortable if nature called and there was a line of people using the shower...

    This was a nice place to stay the night. We used it as a place to stay before and after our Kilimanjaro trek. We felt safe and comfortable here. We also enjoyed the dinners.
