Arusha is the gateway city to some of Africa's most stunning, wildlife filled Safari Destinations, including the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and Mt Kilimanjaro! Many people only spend a night or two in Arusha, before or after a Safari and therefore at Ujamaa Hostel we offer extremely affordable, warm, welcoming accommodation. We have a range of different accommodation types, to suit your needs, and the Hostel is centrally located next to the Arusha City Centre, so you can easily explore some of the cities hotspots!

4.5 star rating on Tripadvisor

"Great hostel that covers all needs. Jenny cooks excellent dinner and after a long day of work you can relax in the nice garden. The beds were super comfy and sharing the room with others wasn't an issue. We mostly even had hot water and rarely power outages. Please note that such things are normal in countries as these, as well as the occasional rat or cockroach. TIA! I enjoyed my stay there, Gasper was very kind and helpful. I removed one star because the bathrooms could have been cleaner. But other than that, Ujamaa Hostel is the place to stay in Arusha! Quiet neighbourhood, public transport, mall with a cinema, grocery store and restaurants is less than 10 minutes walking distance away. :)"  - Ameera, Solo Traveller
