The staff lack competence, although they are good about locking the gate. Like many in East Africa, they never have small money for change, a payment to one does not necessarily mean anyone else knows, and in general clarity is lacking. The bathrooms are all common, even for the "private shared bathroom" although all have closable stalls. The beds are standard fare for East Africa, a mattress with a dip in it.
They don't give you much in the way of furniture or hooks. They cook decent food, generally fresh fries/chips with tasty seasonings, but it's simple fare. I enjoyed the wood fire they made in the evening.
Wifi was fairly good and reliable.
