The Friendly Gecko is exactly what I look for when I'm traveling. The actual hotel is beautiful, the atmosphere is extremely friendly and homey, and it is socially responsible. I had an opportunity to visit the orphanage that the profits from the hotel support and the children and staff were amazing. 100% recommended! Asante Sana Sana!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Friendly Gecko Guesthouse is a socially responsible hostel in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. We aim to offer convenient and safe accommodation for a reasonable price. Since we accommodate around 10 volunteers year round from help2kids, we consider ourselves to be more of a home than a hostel. We love to meet new people and travelers from all walks of life and share our daily experiences. Our Guest House is located a bit outside of the city center of Dar es Salaam (around 40 minutes by car) in a safe and quiet neighborhood. With our large garden and community areas we offer a convienent and relaxed place to recover after a hectic and hot day in downtown Dar es Salaam, or a nice stop before heading to Kili or Zanzibar. ... more less
