I stayed at the Lionsgate Hostel with a group of 12 people as part of an organised trip. If you're not looking for luxury, but you want that hostel atmosphere when staying in Arusha, this is you place. Parts of the hostel are still under construction, but that's not really a problem. The price is fair and the food is absolutely de-li-cious. Also: Nelson, the owner, organised many things for us (transport, activities and accomodation in Mto wa Mbu) and we were very satisfied with everything he did.

The hostel is incredible cheap and really beautiful. The owners cooked for us breakfast and dinner for free. I was even allowed to stay until 2 am the next day to wait for my taxi. We made a bonfire with the super friendly and hospitable staff. Amazing atmosphere. Bathrooms and the pool are not as clean as in most of European accommodations but not dirty neither.

We were allocated Lionsgate Hostel when we booked our volunteering trip and we were so grateful that we were!! Staying here made our experience the best. Breakfast and Dinner was great, the chef was fab and very accommodating, especially on the mornings where we had to leave early. The atmosphere was warm and friendly and we soon felt like part of the family, spending evenings around the campfire, playing cards and becoming accustomed to African music/socialising. The village of Ngusero is welcoming with a small supermarket and pub. We felt so safe at all times and with the help of Nelson, Iddi and Elias who completely made our trip we had everything we needed and visited so many beautiful places that Tanzania has on offer. We will be back for sure!! 100% recommend!!!!
