I found it easy to meet people at this hostel and overall, I enjoyed my stay. The wifi works in common areas and the rooms are affordable. However, there are a few things I wish I had known before booking. In particular, the bed in my dorm room was very uncomfortable, there are no lockers in the rooms, the kitchen was not particularly clean and running water was only available sometimes. Also, the hostel advertises that breakfast is available for USD3/day but no such breakfast is offered.

I wish a few things were improved that would have made my stay a lot better. It was hard to find the hostel. They don't have any clear signage for the drivers to find it. It would be helpful if they put up a sign at the end of street. Also, when the driver calls the number to try to find it, they just tell him 'it's downtown.' Second, the bathroom wasn't clean. I felt uncomfortable trying to take a shower or even use the toilet. Next, no baggage storage. They just put my bag behind the desk.

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.
