Nice grounds and great pool. Did not at all find the staff overly friendly....if you have a strict check out time tell guests there is no need to be rude to them! I ended up paying alot more for a room than i expected as i couldnt chage it when i checked in at 2.30am.

We stayed here for a total of 5 nights during August, in a room containing a double and a single bed, plus ensuite. I thought it was very good value for money. The room was fairly sparse but was clean, had plenty of space and shelving, and the shower was amazing. The food is good and reasonably priced. It was... More

We stayed twice at Red Chilli, once for an overnight stop between Entebbe and East Uganda, and once for 4 nights a couple of weeks later. On both occasions we took a twin room with ensuite, which was very basic but had a fridge, and a clean ensuite and FANTASTIC shower! The bed nets were in good condition and in... More

This hostel went above and beyond expectations. Staff was very helpful, rooms were clean and comfortable. The arranged tours were somehow both cheap and of excellent quality. It was located 15 km outside of the city center, but several, daily, free shuttlebuses took you to the city free of charge. I can only recommend this place if you are staying... More

We camped in the grounds of this hotel and found it quite comfortable. The camp kitchen was quite good. The showers and toilets were a fairly long walk but were clean and had hot water. The bar was ok and it had reasonable wifi. Good for a short stay.

Red Chilli was a great place to stay for a few days. It's relatively inexpensive and the rooms are very nice for what you pay! The scenery is beautiful and they have a nice pool to relax by. The food is fairly priced and delicious! Especially the poolside pizza and BBQ. The staff is very friendly and helpful when it... More

If you want to escape the bustle of Kampala and want budget accommodations this is for you. We had a room with an en suite and it was quite large. We only received one towel but it was sufficient. The rooms aren't the cleanest or the nicest but the common areas and the pool make up for it. Also the... More

Stayed in Red Chilli Kampala for about a week. To be honest, it was ok but it could do with a bit of work: Pros: - Staff were friendly and really helpful. - pool was alright. (Although quite cold) - The shuttle to town was handy and saved me a bit of money. Cons: - DO NOT sit on some... More
