My girlfriend and I visited Moshi for a Kilimanjaro trekking and 5 days safari tour and staying at The Better Inn hostel. The place is absolutely perfect especially for budget travelers. Staffs were friendly and very helpful, the breakfast, dinner, drinks, & hot shower were awesome. The internet never let’s down, it’s working super good. We recommend this hostel to everyone thinking of traveling to Moshi.
Thank you for staying at the hotel. We spent two nights at Better Inn. We were very pleased with accommodation and services. People are nice and helpful.Good food too and we felt welcome there. Vlad, Monika, Nikol and Jana
I arrived at The Better Inn Hostel on September 1st. & plan to remain here indefinitely due to the outstanding quality of this environment! Amos Lufumbilo, The Managing Director who is a man of the utmost integrity & his wonderful Assistant, Issa Hamisi facilitate this spectacular Hostel & also offer many tours at highly reasonable prices! I was first greeted at the gate by Borealis, a most friendly employee who’s BEST attribute is her attention to Customer Service & superb efficiency assisting Tourists with anything imaginable! The sensational Chef, Danny has attended school specifically for preparing gourmet meals ranging from their complimentary Breakfast to a varied menu for lunch & dinner = quite impressive! Moses is a superb Gardener as well as maintaining the Hostel Compounds exquisite grounds! He also assists with Housekeeping Duties & if needed helps in the kitchen! Noela, prides herself in keeping immaculately clean Guest Rooms & full bathrooms with flush toilets, hot showers & a sink area. The mosquito nets are carefully draped like a canopy over each King Sized Bed with white sheets, pillows & a cozy blanket. A plush towel is provided daily or as often as a Guest chooses! Noela is also available to wash Guests clothing for a very reasonable rate. There is also a comfortable 2-seater settee to enjoy reading, writing, etc. & a nice sized end table to accommodate Tourists various belongings + hooks on the back of the door to hang clothing. The four thatched Huts provide areas to relax, read or converse with other Guests. The biggest Hut has a Bar Area with a variety of cold soft drinks, & beer, a big kitchen, 2 large dining tables complete with table cloths & a lovely sitting area with a large flat screen T.V. So far, I have gone on a fun Bike Tour in a beautiful Sugarcane Plantation with my own personal guide, an incredible weekend at The Osillgilai Maasai Lodge, a booked week in Zanzibar with an ocean front Bungalow for Christmas & an upcoming Safari being planned! My main goal for staying in the Moshi area for a year is to volunteer teach in various schools, to observe watching students in action in other schools & assisting in an Orphanage. In terms of school highlights “The Faraja School” + Boarding Home to 100 severely Physically Challenged students from age 7 to 18 was a monumental experience! I was personally driven the two hour distance each way by Issa in Amos’ vehicle = YES Guests are treated like royalty!. It is an honor to be a Guest here & I feel quite blessed! Sincerely, Kevin Jane Miller…

I stayed at the better with my dad inn before our Kilimanjaro Trek. Our twin room was quite nice and relaxing after our long flight from Sydney and layover in Dubai. The staff are absolutely amazing and helped us settle in nicely and also organized to have an early breakfast drop-off at our Kilimanjaro agent. All this for a very reasonable cost
