From my first day I felt like home at Nyumbani Hostel. The staff is really nice and helpful. Mama D.'s food is delicious and it was no problem to get vegan food!!! During my stay I wanted to do some day trips and a safari. Uli and Teddy, the managers of the hostel, organized great day trips and a fantastic safari. They had always time for me whenever I had a special wish. It was great to have the other volunteers arohnd. Thank you for the good time!

Stayed here as a guest and also booked my safari through them and had a really great experience! Everyone is genuinely lovely, welcoming and super helpful. You can book lots of activities and excursions and they are very knowledgeable. Many people there are volunteers and even though I was only staying for a short time they welcomed me and included me as if I was there to stay. It’s a little further out from the centre, but they’ll help you with public transport or call you taxis/pickies that you would mostly be using anyways. The included dinner is really tasty and served family style. Best way to meet other people and exchange. It would absolutely stay again!

The name Nyumbani (Home) actually says already everything. From the first moment on I felt warmly welcome in a super relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The staff are amazing and always there to help you with everything you may need. Also the area in which the hostel is located, is really perfect. It is close to town, but still in a quiet and nice neighborhood. Thanks for this awesome time at Nyumbani!

The hostel is in a really nice area, close enough to town to not be inconvenient but far enough away that it’s not too loud. The staff are so friendly and accommodating that they end up feeling more like friends and I don’t think they could provide a higher level of care. The food is exceptional and the whole hostel has a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere that made me feel completely at home.
