This hostel is a good choice in Addis. It is located in a quiet sidestreet and there are restaurants and shopping possibilities close by. Mini-buses are to be found just across the street and there are fruit stalls nearby. The hostel offers clean rooms, ours even had a balkony. And the owners are friendly. The breakfast, that is inlcuded in... More

This place is without a doubt the best value in Addis. I spent 3 months here while doing an internship and it truly began to feel like home. It didn't take long before I knew all the staff by name and they were all so friendly! The owner, Dawit, has a true understanding of western standards and what foreigners need... More

Mr Martins is clean and functional. The staff (Dawit, Mahi and others) speak good English. They will help you find taxis and minivans and give directions. The breakfasts are simple but adequate. Hot water is plentiful, and internet reliable. Its reasonably quiet as its in a back lane, but with plazas and restaurants nearby. Its got a cute little rose... More

Stayed 6 nights in private room in main house with shared bathroom for US $25 a night. WIFI worked well in the communal lobby area and to a lesser extent from the 1st floor room with large private balcony. Bathroom clean and the water hot. Double Bed comfortable enough. Plenty of areas to sit either in communal lobby or outside... More

Ideal travellers base for anyone visiting Ethiopia. Close to the airport and heaps of restaurants, bars, cafes, shops etc. The place is set back from the main road and feels very homely. It has a great rooftop terrace with views over a local football field. The complimentary breakfast is self-serve and had everything you need. The laundry service is also... More

Addis doesn't offer much in the way of hostels/backpackers which is a shame as the city is great fun! This place is far from the best place I have stayed in while travelling through Africa, but it does the job if all you need is a clean, comfortable, conveniently located place for a night or two - apart from the...

Best you'll get in Addis for the price. Has all the basics, extremely relaxed environment, pay whenever, family owned and run by Mr. Martin, nice guy, they can pick you up (by taxi) from the airport. Is right near the mike layland strip, bus station is a bit far if you want to get around the country but the staff... More
