Liked: Large garden.

Disliked: The staff were friendly, however extremely unhelpful. The hostel was far from the city centre and they were unable to assist me with a taxi from the hotel, and reluctant to let me use a phone to try a number I had. The lack of facilities, distance from city centre and overall unhelpfulness of the staff makes this a place I would not return to.

Liked: Staff was relatively helpful in some instances.

Disliked: We did not have running water and were not provided buckets of water until the final night of our 7 night stay after various attempts to remedy the situation. When attending the breakfast included in the price, staff portrayed poor attitude and acted annoyed that we wanted breakfast on multiple occasions.

Liked: Very clean. Nice breakfast.

Disliked: It is not on the campus of the University of Dar es Salaam - while the Google Map place it in the middle of the campus. No water in the first room. Then we moved to a second room - there was no toilet seat. It was replaced the next morning.

Liked: Clean and very nice rooms. Very friendly staff, they arrange you taxi and they even kept our luggage for one week whilw we went in safari- for free.

Disliked: They are 10 minutes away from Ubungo bus station by taxi, where all the buses leaves. But if you would like to go to the centre of dar es saalam is far.
