Arusha Backpackers Hostel


I've been trying to book a room at Arusha Backpackers and have sent 2 e-mails, but haven't received a reply yet (1x 10 days ago and 1x 1 week ago).

Would someone have another e-mail address for them or could someone recommend a place in Arusha where I can meet some other people as I'll be travelling solo and not too expensive?

Thanks in advance for your help/recommendations!

I don't know what too expensive is for you and your group. But I typically stay at the Arusha Tourist Center Inn which is in the city center, good showers, hot water (I always remind them to turn on the heaters), and a restaurant attached. Cost is $30 including breakfast. There is another similar hotel, I can't remember the name of it, but it is right on Sokoine street behind an Indian restaurant. Cost there was about $10.

Hi, in my experience you can just go there. People come and go there without any booking. if you are not in a huge group that need many rooms, most of the chances that you will find a place to sleep there.

that a very nice place to stay, low cost and many other backpackers from all over.

I agree with Nir L - just go there and check it out.

If it is full, there are so so many other cheap accommodations in Arusha. You will find something for sure.
