I have been staying at the Makerere Guest House periodically since 2008 and while I love certain aspects of the experience, others are really beginning to wear on me. For the positives, I love the campus, a clean and quiet haven adjacent to the bustling Wandegeya neighbourhood of Kampala. I also enjoy the free breakfast buffet, wifi, and the friendly staff.
However, the value for what you are paying for seems to be decreasing over time as I discover other gems around the city. The place is in serious need of a renovation; furniture and bedding seems to have survived Ugandan independence, Amin, and the LRA insurgency. I have not been sleeping well at MUGH due to the lumpy, uneven bed and tiny, claustrophobia-inducing bug-nets - this is very important to me.
Will I go back? I think I am ready to discover alternatives in Kampala.
