The Banana farm Eco lodge is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the center, quiet and lovely artistic setting with the family of the owner Godwin who are quite warm and welcoming people we shared meals with in a cosy dining area. Godwin is quite an innovative, knowledgeable,talented and very artistic young man who is utilising all the available resources and waste from his farm and hostel to create beautiful wooden functional pieces, paintings on the walls and in the houses and is also producing his own bio energy (gas) from food and animal waste which is quite fascinating. He has a good sense of humor, when you do visit kindly ask him to narrate his life story of how he ended up building this eco hostel, very inspirational and funny too!! They do organise farm tours or the premise and the surrounding area with a beautiful river(duruni) a few minutes away from their back yard and also always have tea and coffee available on the house round the clock plus free snacks to nibble on during the day like fruits, popcorn and fried plantains. Definitely worth a visit if you are ever in Arusha.

We stayed at this hostel only 2 nights but we learnt from the people around us a real-life lesson. Godwin, the owner explained to us how he has built and is producing biogas from the waste of his own farm. His story was truly inspirational. We also found out about Masai everyday use of herbs delivered by Augustine, a Masai himself. There is a real feel of a community spirit in this hostel; people share stories, eat together and pass on information. It's a lively place with everything you need: wi-fi, shower, food, friendly advice and support. Don't forget to buy a very tasty coffee grown organically on Godwin's farm! Thank you and please continue your wonderful work.

We arrived here late in the afternoon after a 4 day / 3 night safari. We were tired and sweaty. We were greeted warmly and we instantly fell in love with this tiny, inviting hostel. The beauty and friendliness combined with the hammocks, relaxing open area and cows close by, made for a delightful experience. We were offered a smoothie bowl or a bowl of fruit as soon as we arrived. We ate dinner at picnic tables in the light of lanterns. There were three couples from other countries staying here as well. After dinner the staff made a fire in the fire pit and anyone could mingle and get to know each other around the flames. In the morning breakfast was served in the house. Huge variety of foods were served; fresh fruits, pastries, egg dishes and French Press Coffee! Also, fresh milk from the cows. I would have loved to spend more time here! Stunning hostel.

This is the perfect place to stay in Arusha. We've been there in April for 4 days and our experience was amazing. The place itself has a magic atmosphere, staff is great, food -all organic and mostly grown in the farm- was a plus. Our farm tour -included- guided by Agustino was amazing too! Room is big, confortable and with a good shower, the garden is a perfect spot to meet other travellers :) Super recommended place. Hopefully we will come back someday!

Very nice hostel far away from busy and noisy Arusha. Large rooms with in our case own bathroom, very nice garden with hammocks. 3 course diner for only 5usd. The owner gives a free tour at his property and his banana farm, really nice! We recommend this hostel for your stay in Arusha!
