Gorilla African Guest House was the best hostel we had during our trip in Uganda. We liked it so much that we went back twice. The staff is so friendly and you feel like you're at home with lovely people! I would recommend it to everyone who's ever going to uganda!

We stayed there for 1 night after our long distance flight. Family room was spacious with only single beds in 2 rooms,2 fans, no wifi, clean, quiet, good breakfast. We paid 52 USD for the 3 of us including breakfast which was a decent price for what we got.

Gorilla is set in a peaceful setting in Entebbe, and is good value for money considering the cost of hotels and guesthouses around the airport. I stayed here a few times when travelling backwards and forwards, and each time our experiences were very different! The first time we stayed our room was very basic and during the heavy rainfall, the... More

Although they knew we were coming-we had reserved 2 rooms and they picked us up at the airport-we had to wait and hour(at 11pm) for a room(not 2 but only 1). It was dirty, hot and full of roaches plus there was no hot water(after a 26 hour flight) and they turned off the power. We had to leave at... More

I stopped here for a day and a night with colleagues after a long overland journey. The staff were very polite and helpful, the service was excellent and the environment was very peaceful. The rooms are sizeable, clean and comfortable with plenty of hot water - very good value for money. We actually had a day room for business meetings,... More

Went here for one nights stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Cheap to stay here and the accommodation is very nice. Fans in the room and warm shower. Electric kept going off and water did a few times but that's to be expected in Uganda. Had breakfast as part of price which was scrambled eggs and toast. Very... More

We only stayed one night in this hotel, which was at the budget end of the range. We had a local driver, but he found the place difficult to find, and it didn't seem to be near to any shops / restaurants etc. There was a nice garden area with seats - luckily, as we couldn't get wifi in our...

I adore this quite haven in Entebbe! Although I only stayed there for 2 nights overnight, I visited the hotel for drinks and food a few more times when I was in Entebbe. My experience was of friendly staff, a safe environment, and I enjoyed the gardens surrounding the grounds. Makes you want to bust out a picnic on the... More

This has the potential to be a great place but unfortunately the persistent issues with electricity made our stay more frustrating than anything else. They seem to have recently expanded the property and the rooms at the rear are on a different domestic grid which seems to go down at a moment's notice. My boyfriend and I are well used... More
