The hostelowner was really nice and answered all question and made sure all the backpackers felt really welcomed. Good size of dorms and lots of different rooms to hang out. I had to leave esrly but they made sure i got my delicious pancakes on time
Other backpackers seem to steal the toiletpaper....theres not always there
Very nice accommodation, Daan is a fantastic host, explains great information about all your onward travels and everything to visit in Kampala, superb staff all round and the guests as well are very friendly, thankyou for everything
Simple but tasty breakfast choices (I had cinnamon pancakes), located in one of the safest areas of Kampala a few minutes from Acacia Mall, Kampala Fair, and several nice bars and cafes. The interior of the building and the rooftop are nicely decorated.
The seating areas were dirty with people tracking mud all over the floor, which wasn't cleaned up during my stay.
Staff + location were amazing! The roof terrace is very nice. They have very good choices for breakfast.
They don't allow you to bring in drinks but don't have a proper bar either. All could also have verb a bit cleaner but altogether was a great stay!
Absolutely beautiful! Elementis feels like a home away from home.
