This was a GREAT hostel! The staff was extremely kind & helpful. It's an authentic hostel in a very this-is-what-it's-really-like part of Addis Ababa. I liked the area. I got my hair braided for $2 and breakfast for $2. For travelers who are on a budget, this is the place. One thing I really loved about this hostel was all the socialization that took place in the evening. There were always lots of people at the ground floor of the hostel. It was a very "up" environment and I loved it.

I stayed for 3 nights, and it was a lovely time in Addis. Staff is super friendly and will give you advice of traveling in the country. You can find anything you need in the kitchen, the room was just perfect and location is close to the airport and bus terminal. I definitely recommend to stay in here if you come to Addis Ababa ;)

Place is okay for a very short budget stay. It was very difficult to get water and after many requests, there was just cold water to shower. Then the water would eventually go off again to be possibly restored after many hours of pleasing. Very frustrating to say the least. They also only have WiFi in the lobby downstairs and in the kitchen area. None in the rooms. I didn’t mind much since we stayed there for just one night during a layover but definitely wouldn’t want to stay there longer.
