We stayed at the Kilimanjaro Backpackers looking for a cheap accommodation. Not an easy task in Moshi. But this place, on the main road in trekking distance from the bus station, is at the lower end of the price scale.
We got a double room with a king size bed and a shared bathroom. Everything was clean, with intact mosquito nets.
There is a small communal area with travel books and a tellie, and a bar on the roof. Breakfast is also served on the roof - pancakes, fruits, coffee, tea. For lunch or dinner I suggest you step off the main streets and find a local joint. that's all the while cheaper than the Backpackers' restaurant.
There was no aircon or internet.
A word on tours: the Backpackers is happy to organize Kilimanjaro trips or visits to one of the other National Parks in the area. But you will also meet plenty of "guides" once you step out the door that will offer cheaper prices. It is on you to decide whether you believe the Backpackers' claim that they pay fair wages to their guides and staff or whether you look for cheap only... In case of the latter my preferred mode of action is to use local transport where available and organize as much as possible myself.
