Slightly overpriced. Front desk staff not very helpful. Won't let you use kitchen. Plus side empty dorms and service staff friendly. Electricity on and off. Pool available fan in room doesn't work. Plenty of mosquitoes

Stayed here for the Music Festival in the Botanical Gardens. Booked a triple room in advance. Room was a bit scruffy, dark and dingy. Mosquito nets had big holes. Bathroom was ok for Uganda. Perfectly fine as a place to sleep. Wasn't so impressed by the lack of left luggage facilities. It's a backpackers - you should be able to... More

This is a really nice place! We slept one night in a dorm, and another night we slept in a room for 2 people. The place has a nice garden to take breakfast, or just to relax. We had to catch our flight in the middle of the night, and it was no problem staying there until we had to... More

Entebbe Backpackers delivers the goods. The staff--especially the ever helpful Benjamin--- is friendly, helpful and charming, rooms are comfortable, the food delicious (great pizzas), internet (in the central reception building) works, they'll arrange a pick up to and from the nearby airport. The grounds are pretty, with a lawn and trees ans flowers. You can walk to a market. They... More

We stayed here the night before our flight out of Entebbe. Handy enough location to be able to walk to the Ugandan Wildlife Centre and various food options. Stayed in a 6 person dorm which was reasonable, warm showers were excellent ! Cheap airport transfer with a nice driver.

We camped here for one night - it's not really a proper campsite, you just pitch up in the garden, and the toilets and showers available are not that great (lots of bugs). The wifi was broken when we were there. It's ok for a night or two if you are on a budget.

We spent two nights here and the affordable and basic rooms far exceeded our expectations! There's speedy internet, satellite TV, hot showers and a cosy sociable lounge. The location is ideal to walk into town for restaurants, swimming pools, banks and local attractions and I would recommend this place to anyone looking for accommodation on a low budget. The staff...

I am afraid my judgement isn't positive at all. My bookings during the last months went all wrong, they weren't noted in the reservation book, they were wrong/put on a wrong date, double bookings, mailing 3 times before getting a confirmation. Food is okay but service takes very long, breakfast will only be served after the chef has arrived even... More

Rooms are just ok, nothing particularly bad but they are just a bit grim and aged overall. Bathrooms are ok. Overall facilities are mediocre. There is a dining/living room/bar which is not very lively, apart from this there is not much to do on the property itself. The Red Rooster a half mile down the road provides a good alternative...

First of all it has to be stated that Entebbe Backpackers has excellent service and nice and a friendly staff. The staff is prepared to go that extra mile for you if needed. The area is pretty and the rooms are nice. Unfortunately the food they prepare is pretty bad, and I tried different items on the menu, but it... More
