This place has a lot going for it: safe quiet location, low prices, and great food. Reception manager Kanaan and housekeeper Janet are super nice people who try hard to make their customers happy. And James, the chef, is an unbelievably good cook and also very nice. The owner is constantly trying to improve the property: overall the facilities are... More

Yesterday my partner was at this so-called hostel. She was "greeted" by a so-called guard who was drunk and told her to give him a hug. She had never seen this person before. She asked the receptionist for help but he barely even answered. Another guest at the hostel stayed next to my partner to make sure she was safe.... More

Very basic but considering where you are, I quite appreciated how much I could have from this backpacker. As I joined a group tour starting from Entebbe, the agent had arranged a single room (US$9) for me for the night. It is 5~ 10 minutes driving from Entebbe airport. I had asked a airport pick up, which cost US$7, I... More

The place was full but the 'manager' told us he would help us get accommodation elsewhere. He walked with us next door which was full and then to Green Valley Backpackers/Guesthouse. Said he was curious to see it even though it was 20 mins walk away! We arrived and after reducing the rate from a crazy price to 60,000 with... More

Dear sgesge, thank you for your review. I'd like to first of all say that the person you might have interacted with was definitely not the Manager of Entebbe Backpackers ( glad you put that in quotes) and that he completely acted on his own in asking for any sort of commisssion for walking with you. I'm not certain which... More

I stayed at Entebbe backpackers for 4 nights in total in my stay. The rooms and facilities are basic as you would expect for the price. The wifi is a little on and off and the showers always cold. But the staff really make this place fantastic - willing to help with anything, always smiling and friendly - especially Hannan... More

We stayed here for a night when arriving in Uganda. Colin picked us up from the airport and helped us unload our bags to the room. The location was ideal for finding shops and restaurants in the area such as the Victoria mall. Hearing the birds and monkeys were a great way to start our trip.

I always start my travels to uganda at Frank's backpackers, to acclimate a bit before i start my trip. It;s a budget place, so you don't have to expect a luxury stay. But what you can expect are very kind people, a garden which you only can fall in love with, a pretty cheap possibilty to get you picked at... More

This is basic accommodation with no frills; but does the job. Entebbe Backpackers is ideal for the budget traveller passing through Entebbe as it's much cheaper than most, if not all, other options in town.

We ended up staying here for 10 days due to some medical issues but were very happy with our stay. Affordable clean accommodation. Not fancy but very comfortable and homely. Impressed by the menu they offer which provides really nice fresh food including some healthy options. The staff were great. Very friendly and helpful and willing to help. There are... More
