You don't really expect much when you are camping for 6 dollars per night, but this place is fantastic! You will not be dissapointed when you stay here; with hot showers, proper toilets and good food to give you that much needed boost after a long journey. But the best bit has to be the bar area. A brilliant little... More

Its Uganda, so there is that negative. But the fixed tents were ok, there is an electric light, but didnt help much. The bathrooms are pretty ok, with mirrors and great hot water. The rafting was fun, not sure they were level 5, but we all had a lot of fun. The bar has a view of the river and... More

Stayed for 2 nights as part of an intrepid tour. Both nights the bar and the music blaring from it didn't close down until 4am!! That might sound reasonable until you realise that the bar is directly in front of the tent site!! The camp manager had assured us it would stop at 12am but was clearly lying. Added to... More

Thought the accommodations and rafting were great the staff was extremely rude. The Ugandan bartenders were swell and great company but I would take my money elsewhere, particularly of your looking to escape a mini western culture transplanted into Uganda.

We stayed here only because we were rafting with Adrift so we got a free night. The dorms were fine and relatively clean, the people working there were friendly, the service a little slow, and the food kind of expensive. It definitely had the feel of a college hostel, but we had a good time there. You can request a... More

I stayid for two night in a dorm which was OK but there was somekind of drain under my window. It took a while to get used to the smell. :S I have done rafting once before (2007) and we got a really nice video (+photos) with reasonable price. Now the rafting video was totally overpriced and the quality was... More

I don't think I have logged on to write a negative review yet but here's the first. After 60 days over-landing in Arica this is one of two that I feel compelled to write. Adrift certainly has the view, setting etc so it all looked positive on arrival. Retrospectively I found it to be overrate, over priced and the Customer... More

We stayed here as part of an overland trip. We stayed in one of their tents which was got at a discount. Our tent had quite a few holes in it as did the mosquito net so we had quite a few mossies and a gecko running around during the night. The communal showers and toilets were alright although a...

I had been to this place a few years ago when I was with a big group, but going back on my own I noticed how quite it can get when there isn't a tour going through. That being said, It's the best hostel in town for having a drink and meeting new people when there is a group around.... More
