The room is very similar to that of Outpost Lodge, and both have nice gardens, and wifi in the dining area. Unlike Outpost, it does not provide shampoo/shower gel etc. But that is not what bothers me. One of the staff there is not very professional. Anything that does not come with a price tag, he just overcharge it. I... More

I frequently travel to Arusha, Tanzania. One of the places I like to stay is the Pamoja Lodge. It's a great location, a quiet, tree lined street close to the central clock tower. The service is excellent, they will go the extra mile to help their guest. The rooms are clean, although a bit beat up, the place is definitely... More

My initial rating was average, but after being swindled during dinner and then returning from my kili climb to the Outpost Lodge, right across the street and in a similar price range, I realized how much more I could get for my money - thus the poor rating. Both had clean pools and complimentary breakfast as well as free wi-fi.... More

Pamoja Lodge is a decent, affordable place in Arusha, but not luxurious or welcoming by any stretch. The rooms are utilitarian and the "compound" feel is not very attractive. The staff is very laid back - to the point that you're not sure who is working there and who is simply hanging out watching soccer on the always-on television, as... More

Mosquito nets are broken, breakfast is horrible and poor and being served in a dark room. Room is not clean, bathroom looks terrible and is really dirty. Furniture is a weird mix.

Pamoja is the perfect place when you want to visit also the city. It's only 2 km from the city. The pool and WIFI are another two assets. The kitchen is poor.

We spent several nights at Pamoja Expeditions Lodge and enjoyed the homey feel and hospitality of the friendly and attentive staff. Our family's two rooms were very clean with comfortable beds, mosquito nets and good showers that delivered hot water all of the time we needed it. The wireless Internet was for the most part quite fast and reliable, though... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights before and after a safari and climbing mt Meru. It’s a basic and affordable place. The rooms are clean and there is hot water in shower the most of the time. The staff is helpful, so actually it’s all you need. Not the best place ever, not the worst either... And a tip:... More
