I had the loveliest stay at Villa Viva Tanzania - the staff were super helpful and accommodating with my early check outs and other issues I was experiencing, the bedrooms were spacious and airy and there is a beautiful rooftop bar/hang space. The volunteers and other tourists at the hostel were incredibly friendly and warm. All in all, it was a wonderful experience!!
