I spent a few days here before and after climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. Behind its secure walls it is a lovely spot with a small communal kitchen and relax area. They have DSTV and a fridge with ice cold drinks. The rooms are clean and big. There are mosquito nets and fans in each room. My suggestion would be a cupboard... More

I chose this place because it is off the main drag and this fairly quiet at night. It is still convenient to shops, bars, restaurants,... The staff are friendly and like to talk with people. The breakfast is quite filling for T5000. If you don't have a lot of laundry you can hand wash for free or give it to... More

This is a place I picked solely on tripadvisor reviews. Its fairly new and some in town dont know it, but that almost makes it better. Here's what it has: - perfect location. easily walk to bars, restaurants, shops within 100 feet. - safe and clean. the place feels like it could be a nice hotel, but doesnt have the... More

Stayed here for 6 nights while volunteering in the community - the Backpacker's is in a great spot in Moshi - close to many restaurants, shops, the bank and souvenir places. It is clean, floors are washed daily, and has a small kitchen, an eating area (with sodas, beer and water that you can buy from the well stocked fridge),... More

We stayed at Backpackers for 3 days while in Moshi. We loved it. Mosses is an excellent host. He was always ready with advise about where to eat, what to see, and to just chat with. Mosses is a huge part of the reason that Backpackers felt so much like home! The hostel itself is great. The dorms are small... More

I stayed there two times- all in all 4 nights. one night per person is 12000 TSH so its very cheap. The rasta-style of the hotel looks very good, the staff is also extremly friendly and helpful - especially one guy called mosses :) There is free wifi, which is not very usual in other hostels, and you can additional...

This place has an excellent host in Mosses and an ever lively collection of visitors. It is terrific if you are looking to meet fellow travelers and don't mind the fact it is not always peace & quiet. Rooms are okay

This place is perfect for backpackers: a communal kitchen, dormrooms, etc. We were travelling as a couple, so booked a double ensuite in the main building. Their was a miscommunication and we ended up in a self-catering room in the seperate (dorm)building. Not a nice room, but we accepted it because we didn't want to search for another place at...

We had the opportunity to stay at the Hostel and what a pleasant experience it has been. The hostel is very clean and secure, the interior is done with taste, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. There is a staff member 24hours a day, who is available to help with any problems. The Hostel has a ccv camera... More
