Absolutely loved our stay at Home of Friends. I was pleasantly surprised with the look and layout of the property, including decoration and cleanness of the rooms and the garden. The staff are very friendly and helpful. You feel very welcome from the moment the main gate opens. Excellent value for money. Truly unexpected gem in this remote part of the country. Looking forward to enjoy the house again. Highly recommended.

Home of Friends Guesthouse is a wonderful place to stay. I regularly spend the night there during my professional fieldwork. It is well located, the surroundings of Kapchorwa are peaceful, the managers and staff are very friendly and professional, the rooms are clean and comfortable, and the food is delicious. When travelling to the Eastern Region of Uganda, it is highly recommendable to spend some time there.

We stayed at Home of Friends for three nights with our two young kids. This is a fabulous place that we thoroughly recommend. Beautiful views, great garden to play in with the kids, delicious food and amazing hosts who organised a number of excursions in the vicinity (coffee tour, traditional cooking experience, walks).

We went with friends to stay here over the weekend. Everything was well arranged, clean, and the food was great! We had our own self contained room with nice veranda to relax on after a good hike. The staff was very helpful and knew a lot about the surroundings. The sunset is stunning! We had a great time here.

We had a great time at Home of Friends. We hiked in the beautiful area surrounding Kapchorwa. The accomodation is good and clean. There is a great view from the garden and the food is good. The staff is very helpful. A great place for a weekend trip but also for a longer stay.
