We came as a big group and many of us had to change rooms because of toilets leaking into the hotel room, dirty rooms, worms, and broken plug sockets etc. The towels were also dirty. Would definetly not recommend this hotel.

Good, clean, affordable accommodation. Very helpful staff. Has a rooftob bar and restaurant with some very tasty Mexican food options. Very popular option among visiting researchers and students. Highly recommended if staying in Dar for a while!

We stayed at CEFA for 3 nights with our 2 kids and everybody was kind and very helpful. The place is quiet and safe, and the rooms big and clean. We only regret we didn't try the Mexican restaurant, as it has been highly recommended!

Great service and accommodating staff. Perfect for a night or two stop off in Dar es Salaam. We were put in their extension property (Green Park B&B) and the room was sufficient. Took a bit of time to sort the hot water for shower out but was fine once it was working. Breakfast

The CEFA hostel is a legendary budget option in Dar es Salaam. The rooms are clean and bright and airy. Hot water and AC work well and the wifi is decent. A new owner has taken over and they seem to be refurbishing.
