Property Description

Bushpig is located on Acacia Avenue in Kampala's Kololo area, near to the city centre and very close to some of Kampala's best eating, drinking and shopping.

We are big enough to host any group, but small enough to give personal service! The showers are hot, the noise levels are low, the staff know the city inside out and there's even a garden with deck chairs.

We offer accommodation options to fit all budgets, from comfortable dormitories with larger-than-average beds to large en-suite double rooms with a great view of the city skyline. All rooms have linen and mosquito nets.

Cancellation policy: 24 hours before arrival.

Great location in a safe area with both mall and good restaurants within walking distance. The room got a nice and big balcony. It is very loud from the hallway and form the other rooms, so bring earplugs even if you stay in a private. The breakfast is included, but it takes time. Estimate an hour for scrambled eggs. Few people hanging around. I will come back.

Bushpig is a great spot, a well-known hub in Kampala. The hostel is clean and well-maintained, staff is friendly and personable. The restaurant is a highlight, really good food at decent prices and people come from outside to eat here. Not as much of a social vibe among guests but I think that's because of the low season. Wifi is pretty weak throughout the hostel unfortunately. Tour desk was helpful in sorting out rafting though the walking tour guy they used wasn't great. Overall great stay
