the staff was very friendly & bent over backwards to provide support & answer any questions I had. the only drawback was that it was not very close to some of the cultural/historic sites in Moshi.

This place has really nice facilities for a hostel, and it was easy to meet other guests during meals and activities. It was convenient to have a pool, spa, rooftop bar, chef on site if you don’t want to go searching for things, since it’s a bit far from other places in town. Totally recommend staying here for a few days to chill, do some shopping, or enjoy local nightlife.
