About The Backpacker

We are 2 young Tanzanian traveler who just finished our one year hitchhiking travel from Africa to Europe and we noticed that, minded backpackers are missing some relaxing atmosphere and laid back budget accommodation in this vibrant busy city.
We have a travel desk at the reception so that you can experience Tanzania to the fullest! We offer free coffee and tea including some evening we offer free dinner and hostel activities like pub crawl and beer pong. Free WiFi is available throughout the hostel. There is also a self-catering kitchen, luggage storage, laundry service and ATM.

Accommodation Information

Why are we different? The Backpacker is the only property which offers no bunk beds and no crowds in the room. We offer full and King size beds in our rooms with fully AC conditioner, Fan, Mosquito nets, private bathrooms/toilets and TV with satellite Channel.

Location Information

The Backpacker is perfectly situated in the heart of Dar es salam. We are within walking distance of many bars, restaurants and popular attractions like Kariakoo market, Coco beach, Mbalamwezi beach, craft market, fish market, national museum and the city center.

We're a 10 minute taxi or bus ride from Zanzibar ferry, and 30 minutes from the Ubungo bus terminal station and Julius International Airport.
