Very convenient for first day in Kampala (SIM card , money ), and safety , comfortable. I like it except no hot water
No hot water
Great location, facilities, breakfast & staff!!
Location - 2 mins walking to Acacia shopping mall with loads of restaurants - Indian across road from hostel Hipoint, highly recommended too Clean, sometimes hot showers after they've lit the fire but way of altering temperature of water - it is what it is! Overall decent hostel rather than great but in a great location
Staff are not that welcoming.....felt like checking in to a library rather than a hostel Didn't like being quoted $40 for airport pick up when going rate is closer to $20 Lockers are only accessed by staff at reception rather than by guests in dorms using own padlocks Cheaper to book online than in person even for additional nights
Clean rooms, comfy beds. Breakfast was good, as much French press coffee and tea as you need. Location close to Acacia Mall. Definitely recommended to backpackers on a budget (Theres also a rooftop to relax on)
Would have loved some more info about Kampla/how to get around from staff, but friendly and helpful nonetheless.
